It really could have being a lot worse..


But thanks guys, just have to get a dent fixed, and some good wax did the job on the scratches.


What that deer did was incredible.. Not that I want anyone to go through the same thing but I wish someone would have seen this with me..


Disappointed, but everything's ok.

Installing the BPS shifter and bushings. But nothing can go easy, so the base of my shifter is broken at the bushings on the right side. Damn thing wouldn't lift up and required a 3ft pry bar. Left side was a struggle but eventually lifted, and the right side refused and blew the base out. Epoxy is on for the repair. Seems like someone had over tightened the nuts before and mushroomed the insert.

Only on my cars

Got everything in for my new air to oil cooler. Ordered up my s20g turbo. Figure that it will be more efficient since I am losing water cooling on the turbo.

TVS bolted up. Injectors in. Oil leaks fixed. Intall the new flywheel and clutch kit and we'll be ready to drop the car on her. Slower progress. Working on it before work and over lunch. Cant wait to drive it.

Great deal on it.

It was less than 1/3 of the cost of the precision 5831 kit i was piecing together.

I want to start planning for my clutch job.
A lift is nice but it's very doable without a lift. And why would you take both out together if you're just doing the clutch? Dropping the transmission is the easiest way to do that.

Shifter base repaired and BPS installed, I can find 5th gear finally! Also installed a ZZP tuned PCM, just so I can drive the car, and it can actually be driven now! It is like going from n/a to turbo. So much better, not perfect but good starting point.

Throw out bearings on. Flywheel and clutch kit on. Need to find a bolt for the throw out bearing, stripped one because someone put my t27 in my t30 spot If i find that bolt, engine will be bolted back up over lunch, and get her running after work.

Signed her up for the Pikes Peak Airstrip attack in June!
Major event at the Colorado Springs Airport with roll races in various classes.
Should be fun. Look forward to embarassing some N/A supercars

My LNF grill was delivered today and I went ahead and installed it. It's crazy how the grill alone changes the whole look of the car.

Next, gonna paint the bowtie and do something about these 3 holes from the license plate frame.

Installed. Waiting on my tuner. Got to put a couple covers on and the headlamp back in, few fasteners, and coolant. She'll get fired tonight Almost thought id have to tear it apart, but it was just the little seal on the clutch nipple being on the wrong half causing the clutch to not want to bleed. Got it now.

I pulled into a gas station, and some lady asked me if it was my car that smelled funny.

I'm also not sure if it is my heat shields hitting/rattling, or if my zzp exhaust took a **** like they are known to do
