Got an $800 daily so I can go stupid on the Sedan and keep it the way I want without worrying about getting rolled. The Idea is, Get the same car as a daily so when i'm tempted to modify it, I can just go and work on the blue one. It's 1G-FE, 280,000Kms, Sunroof (no rust), Optional Pioneer Stereo with Stacker, Facelift and has a good amount of boot rust that I can sort easily. I also got another 1G-FE for free so which makes this a sweet buy.

Not sure why collecting a spare G engine is a plus........

Guess they could have a large ring welded to the block, and used for boat anchors.

 

But if your into doing the 1 'gee I wish I had more torque' thing, there is an HKS 2.4 stroker crank in Japan that no one is buying, and other 'go a little faster' parts floating around there.

The rear is almost sorted. Kei Offices are almost near the end of their potential in terms of slam. 326 do Coilovers that slam beyond belief and are captive / not unsafe. We'll see but first the front needs 175/60 and some more slam.

Long nose is being welded properly by a friend currently ( for no cost) which is why it takes time, he's doing it in his own time after work. Long nose has taken to the back burner for now. Next are Mizuno Works headers, Equal length and a modern replica of old discontinued FGK headers.

Progress.

Bits to tweak and sort out before it's 100%, however its at a stage where you get the idea.

Fuck yes!!!! That looks bad fucking ass man!!!! I love it. Makes me want to sharknose mine.

When this is all said and done you should make a mold of the hood and the fenders so you can make reproduction parts.

I was looking for an appropriate response gif for 15 minutes and couldn't come up with anything that exactly captures my feelings about your build.

Why the fuck are you double clutching on the up-shifts ?

And 2k on headers ??

The GReddy headers are less than 500 in Japan, with shipping for less than 200.

 

But other than being a retarded driver, ans foolish with your money....

 

Nice Job !

I hope that one day you have the disposable income to spend it on the exact items you choose for any reason you may have, even if it is to optimize one minor attribute that is relevant to you and you only.

 

Until then, sorry you're too broke to get it.
