Got updates for days since the last time I’ve posted. This car and I have been back and forth to hell and back at least 3 times this past year,. and somewhere in the middle as we speak.

Until I get a complete update written up,.. Here is the latest quick edit from MDU Rd.2 at Gateway Motorsports Park

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.


Cage Progress by conrads13

Sorry for the lack of updates,. progress has been slow on my end tho!

Cage is coming up on the home stretch,. should be pounding that out here pretty soon. Then i just need to finish the tubs, drop the engine in, re-finish the wiring,.and get it tuned pretty much! Cant wait to start this season out!

Here’s a shot of the rear box

…and a shot of the rear box

Here are a few better shots of the rest of the cage

Fella Hush!….lol

Work should be rolling out, so i’ll keep this updated with the play by play!

long time no update!

Had a blast this season on a stock ass SR20.  It meant more driving than last year at least,. so thats cool with me. Planning on even more this next season!

Spun the bearing in this SR20 about a year and half ago. Head was good, found a good block, so made the swap!

Fresh Apexi headgasket

…so lets throw the rest on!

Plan is to get rig it up to run on a pallet for the helluvit just to make sure all is bueno!

These past 3 days have FLOWN by workin’ on the car straight after work till about 2am each night

Here’s another update!

Started stripping down my OG chassis….:'(

All wouldnt be possible if it wasnt for friends!! Here’s Ryan, he’s loosely affiliated with the control freaks!…lol

This shit looks familiar from about 3 months ago huh?….sucks i gotta to it ALL over again

Stripped so bare,…if only my car had WiFi connection


….Didnt taste so swell

Couple shots of the shop,.. I couldnt resist. Makes me wish I had more moneyz!

Check out JDMHookup if you see anything you like!

what a problem to have,.. too many motors and body kits cluttering up the shop

CHeck out my boso-camber!

Front subframe swapped

Poor car, has seen better days

“They are twins,. that is why”

If I didnt have work in the morning, everyone was down to pull an all nighter so i could drive it to work today! While that would have been cool, call me debbie downer, but I just didnt see it happening honestly…lol

Plus it’ll be alot easier to stitch weld, clean up the wiring, and paint the interior while everything is out. But nonetheless, it still isnt too far away from being on the streets,…at this rate at least!…lol



Lots has been done in the past 2 days but nothing worth making a new post or putting up pics.

I took all that wire-sketti you can see up there, and layed it all out and organized it. Took out my turbo timer, boost controller, and all my gauges i had. I’ll just rewire those after i got the motor in and wired and turned over. They’re not going to be too important right now anywho so…chyeah.

Chassis wiring is all in it place tho. Fuse box mounted, harness’s all laid out plugged and ready to play.

Next on the agenda:

– Pull the SR out of my old chassis.

– Cut the tubs and core support off and swapped to the new chassis

– KA installed ( maybe before the core support it put on )

-drivin’ home!

Back at getting ballz deep up in my car again. Lastnight me and a couple buds got alot of work done tho!

ALL wiring is removed from the new chassis, going to swap over my custom wiring.

About 75%-ish of the sound deadening was removed via air chizzle (shit does work!).

Today I’m going to find a way to get my old chassis up to the shop and swap subframes, then pick up my new KA I’ll be rockin thanks to Domi!

(posting from my phone, dnt judge me)


Got the og duece up to the shop and got the subframes swapped over. A lift and air tools go along way! This was a 12hr project in my garage!…lol
Took about 2 hours lastnight.

Shits cruising, but still soooooooo much to do!

For the past 3 weeks its seemed like ive been saying “last piece of the puzzle, I’ll be driving tomorrow” well I guess here I go again.

Put on my ‘lower ball joint bushings’ lastnight, so now everything should be solid in the rear subframe! I also fastened my ebrake cables so theres no play. Its on the looses it can go right now, and Ive never had one pull this hard! I’ve been playing lots of forza too,…so im pretty sure i got the ebrake, and extension stuff down,…watch out now!!!!……lol

Next on the agenda:

  1. put some miles on it to feel things out and to break it in
  2. fix an oil leak i have coming off one of my oil cooler lines
  3. alignment ( im thinking -2 camber front, -1.5 rear, o caster, 0 toe…comment whats ya think! )
  4. intercooler/intake piping done
  5. powersteering installed

…..all of which can be done inbetween me driving it around still. I havent drove it in 8 months tho, and its going to be a completely new car to me.

I only got about 2 weeks to break it in……so…..

…Whose down for some cruises!?
