Relax with the repeat posts, bud. Your pictures were flagged as unapproved, so a staff member had to approve the posts. Its a setting we have no control over, sadly.

Thank goodness you rescued it! Do the bolt heads on those UCAís hit the fender well?

Just wanted to show some of the treatment I saved the car from, this car did have high mileage from what I understand but every single panel on the car was straight and matching number, and even the motor and trans vin matched, but the exhaust was rusted in half, break pads worn down to nothing, every single suspension bushing worn out, ball joints sway bar links and tie rod ends worn out, all 4 ball joints




completely shot, had eBay rear camber kit but was only held on the body side by one bolt on both sides and they were loose, and then there is the subs everywhere, I still have to get and weld in a rear panel, and he ruined the doors completely

Everything done to the car is listed above but in a nutshell, b18c5 with wiesco pistons at 9.6:1 compression and eagle rods stock sleeves, Head is getting redone at the moment with new Supertech valve guides, Ferrea 6000 intake and comp plus exhaust valves, fresh valve job and new oem seals, Skunk2 valve springs, ti retainers, lmas, pro cam gears, and swapping my pro1 cams for tuner1 cams, the turbo is pte 5858 and probably gonna do a speedfactory a/c comparable ramhorn

My list up top is as specific as it gets, literally everything done to the car, and I am going to tuners over pros Because I am going to be running a 5858 turbo and the pro ones require a 62 mm turbo are bigger which is way overkill and way too laggy for what Iím building seeing as how I only am shooting for 500 hp The original goal was to build everything to support way more horsepower when I got my forged block done but now Iím just going to have it at 500 probably for good even with forged block later
