Wish I had time to shoot the **** with you a bit today Garris, but I had a lot on my plate.

We'll have to get together again soon.

No problem, you looked like you were super busy. I'm hoping to have the motor in and the AVCS wiring all hooked up by the time you drop your car off in January, so you can check my work and help me get it all setup in the software. That way I'll be ready for the first start and break-in when the weather permits.

Thanks for all your help Dom!

2.1 strokers out!






I've also decided on my next exhaust I want to try. I'm going to build an Aluminum cat-back for it, and going to try to split the 3" into two 2.25" tubes....running on either side of the driveline. Each one will have it's own resonator, and then it's own straight through muffler at the back......making it dual exhaust. I'm trying to make it stealthy quiet without giving up any power.

I figure two 2.25" tubes will flow more than one 3", plus the smaller tubes will reduce noise, and with two resonators/mufflers it's doubling the rasp killing and muffling power. The aluminum will make it crazy light too!

I'm going to customize the bumper to make it look factory and tasty looking. With the EL header and custom exhaust, I'm going for a smooth, stealthy, JDM type sound without compromising power. I'm also going to run the wastegate dump all the way back to the rear diff with it's own straight through muffler.

I know someone who molded the 09 legacy rear bumper into one of yours. It looked killer. It would work great with your dual exhaust plans.

Hey thanks! The de-stroker block is built and wrapped in plastic, and I have all the parts to assemble the long block in plastic totes, but just no time! I have been too busy building rotated kits and working on other people's cars, and no time for my own. I'm hoping to get it all done, break it in and have Dom tune it before Summer is over, so I can actually enjoy it for a while. I'm seriously missing her! She's been parked without a motor for well over a year.


This is my buddies bugeye that we just painted BMW Laguna Seca Blue. It shifts color quite a bit and looks darker blue under florescent light, but gets lighter and more teal blue in sunlight.



Here the clear coat has been wet sanded and the hood has been polished




Here you can see how the color changes with some lights that are kinda like sunlight




Some random weld bead shots of the rotated kits







Had a machinist friend of mine make a badass welding fixture to clamp the various v-band flanges down to a large chunk of aluminum to prevent any warping. It both mechanically keeps it from moving, and acts as a heat sink to pull the heat out of the stainless flange during welding. It will do all the different size v-bands with different attachments. This one is the Precision v-band inlet to the turbine housing on the top of the up-pipe. The large portion below is for 3" v-bands on the down pipe. This cost me a pretty penny to have made, but well worth it to be able to melt in a high quality weld, and end up with a perfectly flat flange!!!



Attachment for wastegate v-bands






I'm hoping to update this in a couple months with pics of the motor going together!!!!! I need my baby back on the road!

Got the final parts needed to assemble the long block.......New Piper cams with a custom profile designed by Dom at TIC. It's supposed to be a sweet profile for high rpm capable daily drivers....268/280 grind. I had to buy new cams after deciding I didn't want to roll the dice with the GSC S1's I had already bought.

Thanks!

After a 2-1/2 year hiatus, I'm finally able to pull my mistress out of the barn!!!!!! I've been too busy with life and working on other people's cars, while my baby has been just waiting her turn. Goal is to have her back in action by my Birthday June 13th, and then attend the Big NW Meet in Portland on the 25th!



Just peeking out from under the cover




Out in the light for the first time!




In the shop, and ready for her new heart!

Got my new Killer B Header! This thing is a work of art. I also like that the outlet is 2" just like my rotated kit, so a perfectly smooth transition
