And now I can upload photos again even though I haven't been able to sign up for the image thing. Go figure.

Here's the damage to the front bumper and it being repaired. I'm not going to color match it yet, just apply a clear over the primer for the time being. I'm going to wrap it in satin white until I decide what color I want to paint it.


It's not perfect but it's not bad. I'll touch it up when I get around to painting the final color.

Just an eBay V limited style. Doesn't take too much effort to fit.

Got a fender today so hopefully I can have all this wrapped up in about a week.

Had to order new wheels today as the Titans don't clear the Brembo calipers even with 5mm spacers. They will be going up for sale once this forum allows me to post pictures again. For some reason one day it will let me and the next it won't. Can't figure out this technology crap to save my life.

New wheels are Enkei TX5 in gunmetal 17x9 +45.

Got the turbo in today. 20g XTR


Wheels will be here tomorrow. Brakes just need to be bled and coilovers adjusted for height.

Lots of rain the last couple days so there's a film of rust on things but it will clean up easily at least. Should have it on its wheels this weekend and get the cooling system back together. Fingers crossed it goes smoothly.

New wheels on. Enkei TX5 Platinum Grey 17x9 +45 concave face wrapped in Nitto 555g2 235/45-17 rubber.

Next up is setting ride height, installing rear sway bar and end links, and getting the exhaust back on.

Once I figure out why ECUFlash isn't reading my base map, then I can get that loaded and start her up. So damn close now.

Default Project Lucy



Tune was finally done about a week ago and she feels good. I asked for a more linear power band and this is what they came up with. There's a little more in the table but I prefer keeping the tune safer rather than wringing out every last drop of power. Tuned on 91.

Torque curve hits up early on the rpm range, must feel good. Who at EFI did the tune ?
Congrats, guess youíve been driving it.

Yeah it comes on nice and strong. But it's definitely a dog under 3000. We were all pretty surprised that it was able to hold almost 21psi all the way to redline.

Calvin. I had planned on having Stephen at iA Tuning do it, but I was having issues with EcuFlash and decided to have them do it. There's just one little dip at 7100 that we can't figure out. He said it's acting like a misfire but not registering as one. So it might be some electrical interference of some sort. It goes a tad rich right at the same moment as well. No knock detected. I'm going to have to check all my wires and make sure there's no exposed copper or corrosion.

Pulled them from my last car because I replaced them less than 10k miles ago. If I can't find anything else as the problem then I'll probably get one coil pack and start swapping it around to see if it makes a difference.

Didnít realize TurboXS make a catted mid pipe that bots on to the shorty. I always split the oem down pipe and bolted the cat to my shorty, do they still make it ? Stromung no longer makes that part, they still sell the shorty.
You have all good quality parts on your build.
Do you plan on installing the wrap yourself ?
Iím considering buying material and giving it a try on my bugeye because the car really needs a complete paint job. Had 2 body shops quote me stupid money to paint my car, itís not like the body is rough or rusted, the body is mint. Iím thinking a wrap is a fraction of the price but also less durable. I realize wrapping paper now has longer life, maybe 5 years. What material do you plan to use ?

I cut the flanges and welded the cat to the shorty. When I bought my first 9-2x, the previous owner had the shorty but never installed it so I figured I'd give it a try.

I'll be doing the wrap myself. Haven't tried it before but was quoted a min of $3500 to get it done professionally. At that price I might as well do it myself or save a couple grand more and get it painted. I'm using Avery Dennison satin white. Decided on Avery as most professionals say it's the easiest to learn with and doesn't show glue lines as much as 3M. If applied and cared for properly, the life span should be 5 years. Apparently you don't want to leave it on longer than that from what I've read. Tools and wrap cost me about $650 including shipping.
