I bought my car 5 years ago and only recently started to get it to where i wanted it to be, along the way made some stupid mistakes and trusted the wrong people to work on the car. I wont get into those details but i know where i' ll be taking my business in future.
Started off with a low k motor, custom leather interior, front mount, exhaust, boost controller and custom paint.
The paint job may not be to everyone's enjoyment but i don't care and i' ve always had the intentions off changing it.
First stage of mods, rims (had horrible rims on when bought), pfc d-jetro, injectors and coilies.
Then i wanted more power so in went a twin scroll setup, vipec v88 and retuned (never going back to this tuner) for powercruise 2010 - motor didn't quite go bang bu drove it home without diagnosing the issue and destroyed a fresh turbo on the way home on the second day.
so it sat around for a couple of months before even removing anything, then finally stripped it down only to find a small swimming pool of oil on top of piston 3 and 4.
Some months after that the shopping began and the list goes a little something like this;
tomei 260 in, 270 out pro cams lash type
greddy adjustable cam gears
new rockers arms
cp pistons 9.0:1
rebuild gasket kit
roff performance harmonic balancer
bc 1mm over sized intakes valves
bc 1mm over sized exhaust valves
new s15 oil pump
new s15 water pump
all new timing chain kit etc
machining to the block and head
arp fasteners top to bottom
greddy extended sump
velo bucket seat
tomei traxx 2 way 4.39
s14 5 speed
r33 front brakes
ATP turbo heat shield
setrab oil cooler
greddy oil filter relocator
tomei n2 oil block plate
project mu club spec pads
braided brake lines
New 3076r .82 twin scroll turbo purchased - this time from ATP.com much better quality on the welds and rear housing is a much better fit and actually 3" v-band unlike the previous locally bought turbo.
There's probably a whole lot more i have forgotten but you get the idea!
Then the car was sent off to get custom intercooler pipes, dump pipe, screamer pipes and run in tune.
Sean tuned her to 16psi for first stage as we want to make sure everything was holding together and no leaks, so far so good! 16psi 353hp I cant remember what NM it made but enough to have fun.
Thanks for reading!
