Finally some progress. Engine bay is slowly coming along. ABS was deleted this weekend using the kit DeiviDC5 from IG sells.




Also some interior progress. PCI seat brackets came. Got around to installing 1 of the Zeta’s (left the other out so I have some room to tinker). PLM X-Bar was finally installed, and installed the rear seat delete I bought off a semi local friend.



Hoping to have it on the road by the end of the month.

Almost 99%? Give yourself some credit man, don't stop there. If you bothered to do all those other percents, knock out that last one!

Seriously, that bay's looking beautiful though. Proper progress in making it your own.

I just need to finish wiring the Kenwood reverse camera, and reinstall the center console. The rest is back together finally.

Whats the battery set up--looks great
Battery is in the trunk where the spare tire normally is. Previous owner had some cheap looking jumper cover up there so I had a aluminum terminal jumper plate made and powdercoated wrinkle black.

The final project before the attempted fire up next weekend. I refinished the Brembo’s in gloss black (as well as the OEM rear calipers), and I added 88 Rotors CSR Rotors (J hook style) all around. Also the front needed extended wheel studs so 55mm length studs were installed. Finally 6MM spacers were used for the front to clear the caliper.





The wheel spoke to caliper clearance is nice and tight with a 2-3mm clearance.

IT RUNS. After a whole year of updating and cleaning the car up it fired last night. It’s idling a hair high at 1,100rpms, but I’m trying to correct it through KPRO. No idle surge at the moment, so I’m not leaning towards a leak.

In the spring will be tucked AC, Top1 Rear Diffuser, Vented Hood, and probably CR Kiwami’s. The RPF1’s are nice, but not so much my speed.

How much money you got on the turbo setup alone?

It came on the car. I’ve seen comparable setups with fuel systems go for 2.5k.
