To cincydsm and CrunchyMilk:
These TSW wheels have been the one's I've always envisioned on this car. I like the Panasports and such, but they are really common in the classic Japanese car scene and I don't want to be common. It's just like showing up to an event and noticing your nice new Nikes are on the feet of 10 other guys. How embarrassing. The only other wheels I really see on my car are some classic styled Shelby Cobra looking wheels.
Got quite a few updates.
First I installed the Top End Performance camber plates. Pretty simple device. I can only get it to move about a half inch in for negative camber from stock. I don't know if that will be enough with the positive camber the S12 struts provide. I think I can modify them to get another quarter to half inch more movement, but I will wait and see. I'll take some pics of the camber when I install the motor again so the weight will be about where it needs to be. For now, here you go.
Here's the kit laid out.
Stock strut top.
TEP strut top. I have already cut the strut tower a little more for getter clearance on the other side. I will take care of this side when I start to disassemble the car again.
And now the exciting stuff. (for me at least)
Freshly machined head.
Dirty block ready for parts.
Parts to be assembled.
Assembled bottom end. I guess I didn't get a picture of the EVO 8 pistons from the top.
ARP head studs.
White valve cover. I will likely paint some type of design on here for fun.
That's if for now. I'm still sorting out the custom clutch assembly parts and finishing sealing up the motor with small stuff like valve cover and oil pan. Then it's back in the car to hopefully get it running. I still need to sort out some wiring for the initial startup, but the parts are all there.
PS my $37 10 megapixle camera sucks!
