Got some new shoes for the miata this week. They’re STR 512s in 15×8+0. With a bit of convincing via a big-ass hammer, the car’s able to drive, but it could still use a proper fender rolling.

I like ’em!

You can also see ’em in a 180 degree view here!

So,..lets update.

Got the car back from Nocturnal Motorworks. Omars and Dan are bauce,……obviously. Been putting plenty of workseshs in since.

This is what alot of my nights actually looked like tho. Little to no light, headphones,. and alot of just, putting things back together.

Had Omar make me a place to put all my thaangs!
Pretty simplistic is what I was going for,. and as far as random accessories go,. this is all I need. Kill switch, Boost Controller, Defi-Link Control Unit. Will end up being textured and painted black to go with the interior better

Got everything thing together-enough to start pulling it out of the garage, and start working in some day light


Oh yeah, did I mention,..shit runs!! Perfectly Awesome. Still need to get some holes plasma’d in the enginebay, couple random brackets made, and come up with a way to run my dump for the wastegate….aand maybe a couple other things.

Interiors’ getting there. Havent tapped into the tach wire yet to have the Defi work, so I put my old cluster back in just to be sure and watch RPM’s temp and gas levels while I iron things out.

Started putting the front end back together. Was a tight fit with the midmount and new intercooler piping. Pretty crazy to see it coming back together again tho!

Tested to verify that Beastmode still works…..fuck yeah!

…and thats pretty much how she sits at the moment.

I’ve been driving my 86 around for the past week, yay!

The 4AGZE now has new rod bearings, and sounds great! I’m still babying it to break in the bearings, but I’m over halfway through the break in. I can’t friggin’ wait to be able to get on it and actually use the supercharger!

This thing just might get driven at my next event instead of the S14 ^^

Oh ma gosh! I still exist!

Since moving down to Atlanta a few months ago, after years of letting it sit, I finally got my 86 running again! Then I blew up the motor doing a mountain run! How Takumi of me, huh? Yeah, I went there.

Oh well! Now it’s gots a new motor, 4AGZE!

I also bought a body kit for it, I’ve only got the front bumper on so far, haha. I’ll have the rest of the kit on, along with new paint, sooooooon! A few of the other Rowdy dudes and I are going to have matching 86s, SO COOL!

Events start next month down here, can’t wait! Stay tuned for more Corolla porn ^^

Fresh Apexi headgasket
