    I wanted spares for my other car. majority of the sensors, coil packs etc are overkill for this engine. but if something fail's on my other two car's at least I have emergency parts for trouble shooting or to get me out of a bind. there is no other reason behind it.

    No real updates, EFI Hardware is shitting me, ITB linkages hit coolant/heater pipe. so i need to redesign how the linkages work and EFI Hardware won't communicate back. for something, they advertise as bolt-on it hardly works. its summertime here, and with newborn/Christmas and NYE holidays i have not looked at the car, i have been designing rear arms for the X8. I'm currently bidding on some tension rods for the X3 though. so if i win them i will start working on the X3 again but yeah overall, this ITB kit has really been a kick in the nuts and i regret buying EFI's kit due to the lack of help once i walk out the door.

    No real update, been waiting on items to arrive and also designing new shit. Custom rear arms are coming along nicely. expensive but nice with a mix of Titanium, good FK bearing Heim's joints, MERICCAAA just awaiting for Chromoly to arrive Knuckles are sorted, doing my own LCA V2's. the tension rod is in the air, do I just mod AE86 to fit to get me on the road or do i continue on designing? I have to say the size and lack of slop in the FK Hiems vs XM ones. fucking crazy. looking forward to seeing how this whole setup will work. still stuck on the rear driveshafts though.

    Current working's X8 Knuckles

    Pretty sure there clipped in there like his others and universal item. but will double-check Also the same thought, I was going to stick with stock arms extended and just average knuckles with akerman. but now thinking i might just go there and be done with it. as to be honest i CBF developing new front tension rods to use stock items LOL.

    o small updates, had Jeff at Motorsport Engineering Services clean up my manifold and set it up for a 70mm Bosch motorsport DBW TB. it involved welding up the old holes and cleaning up the plenum flange to suit the extra diameter. the manifold is currently at the powder coater getting cleaned up, will be good to see how it all turns out. hopefully, in the next couple of months, I will have the engine complete and ready to be fitted.Car is off to get some fabrication work done at 21Fab, starting off with the fitting rear wide body, so repair huge holes in old wheel tub to boot. clean it all up to allow larger wheel/tire combo's. once this is done the car will come back home while I work out what I will do for the front end. only one company seems to be making Caster rods at the moment and they are junk.I run bearing front end and not the standard rubber mount. this will result in the binding of some designs. below is just some paint designs quick idea's. so far im going to see how far off AE86 Arms are. As i have a set here and if it only requires me to drill one hole then I might go that route for now.

    I think the only creator comfort is power steering and elec windows. I have to say I find the X6 seats more comfortable then the X8. but yeah this is a bit of a resection of a car. it is sort of that car i hate enough to thrash it, but like it enough to make it semi-decent and the reason im making it a replica of my old car is to keep people from sooking as 99% of people would not know the real HKS/Tezuka car has become something more suited to me dreams and not the peoples

    So went to trail fit my Struts and well lower bush does not fit, another case of the internet says it is a bolt-on swap and well......... that definition of bolt-on is very different for some people on the side of good news, after months of waiting for the weld in threads, they are here. So this will allow me to bolt in the MX41 rear diff subframe to give the stock appearance. the front ones are probably overkilled but they will allow me to bolt in AE86 Caster/tension mounts opening up the world for aftermarket items. Still, three weeks lockdown before anything crazy can happen but pretty happy that the parts collection is getting there enough where all the custom stuff is completed and it is a case of buying off the shelf items.

    So a bit of progress on this. Had a local come check it out, worked out a deal to get some fabrication work done. so the front will be repaired (new rad support not tube front) in doing so, I picked up an S14 240SX cross member this then lead me to buy a rack, get the new Ciscokids street knuckles. (Essentially Tezuka freedom street knuckles. got with his permission to build) and Started working on LCA Design for another Ciscokids product. as the whole reason for this car was R&D to offer more products to my customers so other than needing caster rods and an upgrade in suspension from the key office to shock works. the front end of this thing will be complete I have everything else.

    I have the X6 seats to pass engineering, I also have a TRD Bucket and well..... stock X3 rail bolted up so that was a huge win.
