I love my car!!!!! - 100th post - hurray me!

well.. i've been dying to post some updates about my project.. but the last post i made i noticed that i was at 99 posts... nothing huge compared to many of you.. but i'm not much of a chat room guy. So....

I did it!

I did the auto to 5spd swap and got a new JDM engine.. the only thing i didn't do myself was deal with the timing belt.. i had a friend that was a mechanic that does that all the time help me there.. but I'm overly excited about my car.

my latest setback was with my old head..


it was ported and polished so i want to keep it.. bad idea.. it appeared that all i needed to do was swap out two bent valves.. but i didn't see a small crack down in one of the stud holes..

so here is the jdm engine i bought.. with a good head on it..



thinking i had a good head already with better cams.. again rookie mistake.. my cam's were a bit worn so problem number two.. i sold the good jdm head



got my new tranny and engine put together and dropped it in the car..



hook up all the wires and hoses.. and FAIL!.. no compression.. well some but i'm talking like 85 psi... i'm about to blow up..



^^ this is me before i dropped in my crappy head.. but this is how i feel.

so i sold my good JDM head being polish greedy.. then i luck out and find one in seattle where my brother happens to live and is driving to me a few days later so i don't have to pay shipping.. hurray

undo all of my work.. then redo it with my new head... and hell yeah!!!!!



sexxy clean engine bay.. in my opinion. She fired up on second try..

got my console back together and seats back in



^^ i need a shift boot. lol

and she finally got her first cleaning in months.. and got to roll around on some huge new tires.. they are R17/235's from an EVO.. i've rubbed a bit on some tight corners.. gonna have to adjust my coil-overs.





just a quick shower.. the weather sucks here and i'm moving to seattle in a few days so I'll give her a proper cleaning when i get there.

Thanks to everyone for your help.. i now hope to contribute the same to those who take on the daunting task of a 5spd swap.


it's been a journey.. but seriously worth every ache and pain... i haven't really got on her yet.. but holly crap she's quick.. dyno charts coming in a week or so after i get to seattle.. and hopefully my next addition will be a turbo setup since i've got a 5spd now!!!! well my pockets are empty and i just graduated college.. we'll see.. i kindof need a job to get that rolling

Glad I wasn't the only one wondering.

The car looks clean though. It pulls of the body kit look surprisingly well, and you know by now how against body kits most of us are.

Sweet Lude..

Love the colour..

Is it just me or are those Lambo doors? One of the pics looks like the door is going upwards.

Also I'v always wondered what the two catches are on the front of the bonnet?

yes... i am extremely proud of myself for doing this myself.. honestly with all of the head aches and setbacks with all of my custom parts and interior **** this would have cost me at least 5K in labor.. lol. And thanks to all of you who helped. HELMS is magical

the intake manifold was a prototype that a local tuner shop did a few years back.. F2Uning is the company.. there is a dude with a sick as STI that F2Uning also worked on in the northwest.. he's been at HIN in seattle and Excelerator at silverwood... the old man that ran the business died and his kid F-ed everything up.

more than likely it will be boost.. super charger? turbo? i dumped my A/C so I've got tons of room up there for an intercooler

I know.. people hate on the lambos.. and the body kit.. but with the combo of both the lines on my car look pretty sexy and what can i say.. chicks dig em'. lol

and bonnet? does that mean hood? if it does they are hood pins.. cause you know when i'm gettin all fast and furious my CF hood will fly off. lol.



Thanks for all the support everyone.
