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?

Quick update.

So the awesome dudes at Brian Crower sent me the wrong cams. They sent me S14/S15 cams.. Gotta send this back




Got tires mounted on the CE's



Out with the old in with the new



Looks like im going to need spacers all around



Got these made im going to have to mess around with the plates but from the looks of it I might not be able to quarter panel mount gotta see what I can do.



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.

Nothing really new about to pick up the motor from Pavel, also bought a S14 timing chain cover/oil pump new from zilvia since the one I bought from someone was pretty much trash.



Thanks to oots for the hook up

Grabbed Isis intake mani and radiator hoses



Bought the rest of the miscellaneous things for the motor. New plugs, oem thermostat, break in oil, and what not.

Dropped everything off Very Happy car should be good to go soon pretty excited

Picked up the motor pretty happy about it Pavel does AMAZING work







Took off the VC I felt like painting it



Home depot gold flake paint with clear effex





Loaded up dropping it all off to Kevin's to finish everything up





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.

Updates coming soon I still have to pick up my turbo from Pavel he didn't have time to finish it

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



Assembly process





Here is the waste gate actuator situation

Cut up a bracket from a T25 heat shield



Cut up and measured



Rod was way to long so it was cut up and shortened



Test fit



And BAM















Pretty happy with it Very Happy

Got some 25mm spacers



Dropped everything off and here is the motor hanging out



Kevin's house of race cars lol







All the stuff for the motor is set
