My ECMlink speed density setup and boost controller came in also and I'm waiting for my FP intake, and catch can to get delivered. Still waiting for some money for FIC 1250cc injectors, fuel filter and Fuel Pressure Reg and 6 puck disk. And I picked up a perfect condition 95' Mirage Sedan last week for $1800. Ill post pics of everything in the next couple days and should start pulling the engine again next weekend for engine bay repaint and semi wire tuck. BIG THINGS COMEING SOON, gettin ready for Mitsu owners day 2013 in July

Looking good.

Wow, that wiring is something else. We've all had a car where we've had a bundle of wires to clean out/up. Not fun, but once it's done right, you can forget about and concentrate on driving and never thinking about it again. :P

If you get popped for no front plate you can always put it on the passenger side and cover up your missing signal and piping ;)

Got the last of my parts in today! ordering the ACT 6 puck next then awaiting funding for the Tial 38mm WG, FIC 1250cc injectors, Aeromotive FPR, wally 450lph pump, and other fuel components, I plan on running E85 so its go big or go home. Im starting on Saturday with the engine pull.

Things I dont have pictures of are the high temp black paint that im painting the bay after I strip all the unnescessary stuff off and wrap and tuck the wires, the front end is getting stripped, sanded and painted. And I have a 3" QTP electric cutout I will be installing with dump pipe leading out the passengar side rear door for added exuberence and child scaring :evil: ! the entire rear section exhaust will be 3" straight pipe with a 12" resonator. I only have a 2-3 week window in my schedule untill Mitsi Owners Day in July so I have to work quick between work.

Recieved my re manufactured Mirage turbo drivers side axle from Autozone for $50 P/N: 7947
Image

Speed density and Boost controller from ECMlink
Image

Freshly re-built Holset HX40 POWERRRR!!
Image

FP 4" intake, K&N 9" filter with couplers
Image
Image

Bullseye Performance Hotside, new metal gasket, tubular O2 w/ WG dump. this whole setup I bought used for $280. I will not be using the crap Godspeed 38mm. Im waiting for the Tial 38mm to arrive. And T-Bolt clamps for my FMIC system so I dont blow off any pipes under boost anymore. This whole thing will be stripped sanded and painted high temp black and possibly dump tube wrapped.
Image

Just picked up tis beauty as my New DD while the white Mirage serves as my show/ drag car. 128,000 miles, fresh black paint, old man owned, w/ working A/C, car is FLAWLESS!!
Image

Bought some Replica SSR Tpe-C rims with 90% tread on the tires for $380 :supz: next is tint and 2" drop and leaving her stock while gather the AWD Evo 3 setup and build her a forged 6 bolt :D
Image
Image
Image

both my babies
Image

At Race Legal (an event held at Quallcomm stadium every other week 1/8th mile drag strip
Image

The Military Police have been Hating on my car lately after I spun tires leaving base in the rain so they have been stopping me whenever I come through the gate, im sure there gonna love my 3" stright piped exhaust im having built lol
Image

QTP 3" Electric cutout FTW

My mom sent me $100 for my birthday and said "Im sending this money so you can buy yourself some tools, make sure you do so" BEST MOM EVER, off to Harbor Freight I went and grabbed some stuff

The big tool box ($24) has 3 smaller ones inside it, the 7" angle grinder and 7" cuting wheen were like $50, 20'- 150' ft lbs torque wrench on sale for $20 and some other little crap like wire wheels and step-up/ step-down set were a great addition to my array of tools. next is a lincoln electric MIG welder (to aid in the AWD swap in the next year or two) Miter saw, air tools and air tank and other goodies... great birthday for me

Looking good! Hate to burst one of your bubbles but that's not a turbo axle. Turbo axles are equal length, like the 1g AWD axles.

Hmmm well the guy said driver side 89 mirage turbo. So should I buy a passenger side axel for the driver side since their equal lengths? And would I buy a mirage turbo? 1G AWD?

Actually I remembered on page 4 of my build section I have a pic with the axels out and sitting besides each other and the drivers side is about a matching length (judging by the picture) as the one I purchased.

Yup if isn't a two piece axle then it's definitely not the right one. Just order a empi from rock auto, those pos parts chains are gonna give you a terrible headache trying to get you the right axle. http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/moreinf ... cc=1207190 you are still gonna need the inner shaft also though. Just looked at the axle on page four, it is the wrong one also.

Ok so let me get this straight I need to buy the one in the link then buy a passenger axel to bolt into it? How has the one I have now been working?
