Update #11:
This is where the car stands as of today (9/15/12)
Well last week my tuner Frank Siharath came up from Southern California to take a look at my car in person and also pick up my engine to run through it and make sure everything was good. Unfortunately; We did come across some minor issues (leaks coming from 3 valves and also a sign of the rings going out) so now we are doing Brian Crower Valves, Tomei Poncams (256), and a new set of rings. I haven't got word yet if we need to do machine work. These are pictures that Frank has taken with his phone being as which he is 400+ miles away. I will be adding pictures to this update rather than starting a new update for the same thing. These are what I have now.

The car as it sat when he arrived:


Engine tear-down:










More pictures to be added! Including some engine dress up with a bit of functionality behind it!

Yeah it was a big setback (financially) which will naturally prolong the build but here is the goodie list:

BC Connecting Rods
CP 87mm Pistons +.40 Over
.8 Apexi Headgasket
New Water Pump
Tomei Poncams
BC Valves
New Valve Stem Seals

Plus some other little odds and ends. Should be well worth it.

I got kind of screwed on that whole deal. It was a lot more money than I was willing to spend. It was problem after problem so I just got rid of it. I didn't want to see it anymore, so I parted like 80% of it out. I still have the turbo assembly surprisingly.

I was just tired of all the f*** ups I was having with the SR. If it wasnt one thing it was another. It just got to the point where I didn't want to look at it anymore, and now it's getting to the point I dont want to look at my shell haha.
