sure are! Been running quiet a few Perrin parts for years now and always held up no matter what I've put the car through! Fuel rails, master cylinder brace, front and rear sways, end links, rear control arms and sure some other stuff i'm forgetting!

Also know Jason Cancio and a couple other guys have used your super steer kit without the supplied rack stops on a couple drift cars in order to get more steering angle without having to modify the oem knuckles and also as your kit has zero Ackerman (great for drifting). Sure you guys wouldn't advise doing this but know it works great for us drifters.

Keep making awesome products guys!

Jason is the guy with the GR in Seattle right? I actually PMed him about it a while ago when we were first coming out with the super steer, cause I knew he'd want it! He got crazy angle with it too, it was awesome.

so been a while since i updated this. First of all, wall hit damage is no more and Elevens' paint and fiber did some awesome restoration on the rear quarter. Secondly, rebuild the engine after starting to hear rod knock after a dyno tune roughly a month or so ago. Dyno numbers were awesome though and motor is making what i'm looking for. roughly 406whp and 390tq at 22psi on e85. could probably get close to the 500 mark if i upped the 1000cc injectors and went to id2000s and around 30psi. 22psi is right at the beginning of the turbo's efficiency range.

Recently teamed up with Forced Air Technologies and they did an amazing job rebuilding the motor with a new ej22t crank, acl bearings and the new manley h-plus rods. Finally figured out the right way to weld the r180 rear diff and its holding up strong. on an effective 4.11 final drive but thinking about going back to 3.9.



hit up a secret location the past Sunday morning. Got some nice photos and some footy to put together a quick edit. That's it for now...but rest assure, you'll be seeing a lot more of this "wild thing" shortly....

I know nobody noticed or cared haha...but...magazine is out at a lot of locations now. Go check it out and support print!







^ last pic is pretty funny. License plate is fully published in the issue....ooopsie daisy....

Guess to understand that I'll also give you a little behind the scenes on the the weeks leading up to the shoot and the final 48 hours before it.

SOOO...i mentioned I developed rod knock on the dyno, that weekend pull motor and dissasemble, the following Monday Super Street contacts me about doing a feature. Basically the car they were going to feature for September had fallen through, they thought mine would be a good car for this issue, but this would require the car to be ready pretty damn quick. I think basically I had a month from when they contacted me up to the shoot. In that time period I had to do the following:

-Buy parts for engine (had to buy a new ej22t crank, bearings, rods and headgasket), rebuild motor and install it
-Repair the wall damage I had on the left rear quarter panel...look back in the thread, it wasn't a tiny scratch we are talking about.
-Do a couple small fiberglass repairs to the body kit
-Do major repair to the rear bumper and repaint it.
-Clean the car and get it presentable and ready for the shoot.

Keep in mind i'm an accountant...I work a lot.

Skip to two days before the photoshoot, motor is being assembled at my sponsor Forced Air Technologies (FAT) here in Phoenix. Two of the cylinders seemed a bit heat warped and took longer to get back from machine shop, but yeah so thursday night the longblock is basically together.
Same time, I have just picked up the car from my paint sponsor Elevens' who worked a miracle on the rear quarter panel and repaired all the damage and repainted the rear bumper etc. all within literally a couple of hours of work as he was extremely swamped at this time. Ok so work on motor till about midnight then go to sleep. Get the rims from my buddy vitaly and haven't put them on. Drop off shell at FAT.

Friday, get off work and head to FAT around 5pm. Start bolting all the accesories on longblock, timing, turbo, etc. Get motor together and start putting it in around 11pm. About 12 pm motor is bolted to tranny in car. Go to engage clutch fork and wont engage. after some time realize the ring in the back of the throw out bearing had become unseated and wasn't holding to the pressure plate. Now its 1am day before shoot. Rob and Brandon of FAT have to leave way early in the morning to travel up to Vegas for an event. We load the car on my trailer and I take it back to my garage. Girlfriend picks up lots of coffee.

Get home and pull engine back out. change TOB. put it in. work all night, around 8-9am I think fire up engine. rest of the day basically was a blur but yeah crazy hectic. had my girlfriend detailing the interior. neighbor helped apply decals, and at somepoint fitted wheels and had to space out fender flares and stuff. wash the car and then working on hooking up catch can when i realize i should check the time. I'm 5min past when i'm supposed to meet the photographer and haven't test driven the car yet. call him to say i'm late, finish hooking up catch can, wake up gf who was napping, and jump in car. Luckily i had installed everything fine and made it the shoot. Photos go well and then do some major burnouts for the cover.

Overall, I'm really honored to be featured in a magazine, especially one as reknown as Super Street. I never thought my car would be in such a mag, and I totally realize if anyone reading this thinks my car isn't magazine quality. It's a purpose built drift car, not a show car. I can't count the number of scratches and knicks it has. I thrash the **** out of it everytime I drive it.

But I feel this is maybe what attracted Super Street to the car, after all, they hit me up, I wasn't trying to get my car featured. I believe they wanted to feature a more realistic build than the flawless, shop built, hardparking cars you often see in mags. Even though the internet has definitely taken over and car mags probably aren't as popular as they used to be, I'm super stoked and feel honored that my little drift missile, reject ugly duckling of the awd community, is considered worthy of being a cover car and now I will have something to look back on when I'm older I guess!
