Man, I'm into the wheels and wing. White ought to look cool, that bronze is fire though. I'm sure a decent shop can get close to the Volk finish, no?

the car that will never run! - Page 6 20130602_154732_zpsa352b03e

Rears are on and this is how it's currently sitting. Just waiting on the cams and the new center section of the turbo to come in. Motor should be done this week or when the cams come. Haul this to Kevins finish the swap and tune drive the living piss out of it.

You were able to get the TE's refinished I see, I'm glad you went through with the bronze.

BTW, that looks fucking cool.

Only reason it looks off is the huge need for spacers. Gonna be spot on.

At this point all I need is a 90 degree coupler, PCV valve, 25mm spacers, and my new oil pressure gauge because the one I had was a mechanical so I ordered a Stack oil pressure gauge eventually gonna swap all my gauges to stack.

Who's ready for a update??

Turbo getting re-built at Pavel's racing engines

We ran in to a issue that a stock T28 waste gate actuator would not work or a T25. The turbo had a weird one that came with it but the owner needed it back. So being Pavel the crazy Russian wizard made a custom HKS waste gate actuator he had laying around.

Sand blasted the housing and with my new Garrett GT2871R CHRA
