I guess LOOOOOONG time update.

A lot has happened, and a lot hasn't. Way too much indecision and 4 moves later.

I originally had one of my 2.43 destrokers, big cams, and a 35R in here but before I finished charge piping, and as it was a 60 mile a day DD in rush hour to build a TMIC & EFR 6758 with a little 2.1 stroker.

Then took my job at RYE and moved and it sat. I left RYE after a few years and got my own life back. I started on the EFR 7163 and FMIC set up but said screw it, that I just needed to get it running reliably first.

So much indecision but I realize my coupe is the toy again. This will just run for now.

So what's on it now:

Things that stick and stop
-full car bushing kit from Turn In Concepts
-Feal Tarmac struts paired with Racecomp engineering yellows
-Whiteline Front and Rear adjustable bars and Kartboy endlinks
-Stoptech ST40 front brakes (but might slap my STi Brembos on)
-Rota DPT 17x9 +42 wrapped with 245/50 Starspecs (they'll be short lived)

Driveline
-STi driveline swap from an 04 STi I parted out
-ACT Street setup
-Driveshaft Shop rear axles
-Kartboy shifter bushing kit
-Kartboy trans brace bushing kit

Engine stuff
-2.1 shortblock: 3MI Racing rods, JE 8:5 stroker pistons, OEM 79mm crank
-Ported S20 castings, used STi sodium filled exhaust valves, and EJ255/257 exh cams, with some hand-me-down BC Racing single coil valvesprings
-I rebuilt a VF22
-Still on those GT Spec equal length headers
-APS downpipe
-Blitz Nur Spec cat back
-Still an old Walbro 255 for now
-old but BNIB SMC meth injection kit (for now)
-Kartboy standard exhaust hangers
-Perrin turbine inlet

Other stuff
-PLX gauges and dash cluster
-Ver3 STi seats

Probably forgetting a lot of little stuff, but am getting up to speed on reflash tuning before I jump to the EFR turbo, FMIC, and bigger injectors.

Most excellent. The NASIOC hosting is pretty good for pics, FWIW.

I was going to but the pic insert image was only letting me put links (they aren't hosted anywhere yet), and the attachment paperclip is missing

Did they change the image hosting stuff on me or am I blind now?

The bugeye now with a pokey VF22 and TMIC for now.


2.43 destroker with the old 35R in the old VB garage, pre-shop space


VB with the 35R build in my little shop.



Still VB doing the 6758 and TMIC fab work.




Two moves later and in NC, the 7163 and FMIC build. Accidentally broke the 3D printed test-fit inlet. Whoops.
Also bought a TIG welder here and decided to start self-teaching TIG welding on aluminum, so be kind about the welds

And some eye candy of distracting cars along the way...neglecting chump cars and NASCAR because eye candy.

Put on 30 lbs in 6 month, working 12 hour days for two different development engines of this car.

Not nearly as involved and GS class, so not too much changed.

This was just downright fun. Love this car on a shoe string budget.

Wow, thanks for the candy, they put a smile on my face! Look like you have a very cool job! Is that you in the foreground?
