No problem man, where you want it to be delivered?

Added 28 minutes later:

So, traded in the W129, and all I could get for it was this used Galant VR4 that some idiot teen stuck a methanol rail onto, and different rims.





Added 6 minutes later:

Picked up a new exhaust system on the way home, this one has Boso/Shakotan exhaust tip, and a turbo header and downpipe. The old muffler/tip was pretty sad...

Before


After


Added 6 minutes later:

Got the turbo header and turbo itself fitted, runs really well, turned the turbo up to match the methanol, and now it has ~550 hp. such an easy upgrade its hilarous. The internals in these VR4's engines are really strong, so they're perfect for builds like this. Think I'm gonna wait until tomarrow to drift this thing.

Hey Guys had a huge crash today and fucked up the Front.
But because im always planing ahead i already had the Spare parts.




But i noticed a loss in Power lately and well i know why now.

-Head: Done
-Cams: Done
-Webber: Suicidal
-Header: Crap
even the Cam Bearing was broken how is that even possibly

so i started to replace everything:
-New Reinforced Racing Head
-D-Speed Cams
-New Webber
-Titanium Bearing

So bring it on




And get it back in


i was done in the Middle of the Night but i made it to my Dyno Run
Today
307 HP out of an N/A 4 Pot.
Hell yeah.

Also if someones interested i'm thinking bout selling it.

I'll join in on this.

Well, today i decided i'll take the missile out, ever since the 13B blew up she hasn't had much action.
Showed up at Bihoku, and checked the plugs before the run.


All was good, she was rotating normal, the junkyard LS was doin' its job, then it threw a rod, jolting the suspension throwing it into, and over the safety wall.


Headed back to the shop to see how bad the chassis is.

UPDATE*
Got the car back to the garage, and the knuckle, tierods, strut, strut tower, control arms, motor and trans mounts are done. If i could get a tubed front-end i might be able to save 'er.



Next build, a Volvo 850 GLT. Picked it up for cheap, and i bet my 16's and LS from the S13 will fit it.

SON OF A BITCH! I got to the garage today after school, and found that my lock on my gate had been cut. there was smashed glass where the BMW and VR4 had been. Both got stolen. I keep the GTR, Viper, and Jaguar in a lockup, and drive the GMC home every day. Why me? I'm glad that I had some REALLY good insurance on those things... I called my agent and he said they would replace both cars with better versions, so, in replacement of the Bimmer, I'm getting an M3 GTR, and for the VR4 I'm getting an Evo X. Some good things can come out of shitty situations I guess... The cars aren't here, but when they arrive, I'll post some pictures of them... I love insurance... He told me the M3 would get here first, cuz they have to import the Evo... Seems kind of backwards to me.

Got the Volvo in. I noticed that the previous owner added lowering springs, or cut the original.

@DeXXter-Ima send it to the grove, it's pretty done, but i could probably save parts off it at some point

Dont to that i'll take it as it is 300$ cash.

also so you don't feel alone with your Station Wagon i got myself a Daily
Driver, i needed something Big with alot of Space to pick up Car Parts.

and i think i found something i like well i'm sure cause i bought it but see for yourself:
a Metallic Gray 2009 Holden Sportswagon because Audis are to Mainstream.
bought it from some V8 Nut.






Beauty, i dont know that much bout V8s but this thing is like a Rocket, Top Speed is kinda Meh but Heeellll
it feels like Flying. Also the Guy who sold it to me said he swapped in an LS2 anybody knows something bout that Engine im nota V8 specialist.



it's not a Big Project Car but i'll change a few things like the Rims those are way to small.

Does the LS2 have a supercharger on top of it? The M3 got here... Its a 2005, but still REALLY nice. BTW I have Allstate, with Better Car replacement, I actually know someone who got an Evo X for an old FTO. I'm on my way to pick up some new lights for this thing, chrome and black tint on rear, currently has blue halos, got yellow with black tint lenses. Its gonna be my daily driver from now on most likely, and when the Evo gets here, gonna make that my drifter, but not a drift missile. Gonna get a POS and practice drifting with that, use the evo in tournaments.

Great builds Guys! Recently I purchased a 04 Toyota Altezza fresh off the boat from an import auction service. it was 15K after tax and registration, and I believe I am the only one on my side of Valo with a Legit Altezza :) (please correct me if you live in the area). This came with the non-turbo 2jz and r32 rims so I just had to jump on it. Just slapped on my first upgrades today, I had an old momo wheel and hub and a custom fabricated 2.5 catback exhaust. stay tuned for updates just put the order in for coils rush delivery

Just finished adjusting the coilovers on a friend's Altezza. The car has a NA-T Beams 3SGE with a GT2871r single turbo, forged pistons and rings, 600cc injectors and a 3 inch exhaust setup. The kit is a CWest Altezza kit with custom made Carbon Fiber addon parts as well as carbon fiber fenders and a BCL spoiler. :awesome:

Just alittle update. I went to pick up my coils after school at Valo Rim and Tire. They were running a special saying that if you buy a set of rims on clearance the tires will be 50% off. What a deal right? So I left with a "gently used set of BBS LMs and slapped those babys on. Not a single trace of curb rash either. next up I Placed an order for new control arms and some brembo 4 piston brakes. Todays Photos:

My New KSport GT Pro Coilovers. Preset settings right now till I get my arms


My "new to me" BBS Lm wheels (18x10) may need spacers, any comments?

No Pics-
So i got the Lolvo ripped apart, got the suspension, rims, and LS swapped into it, and she just isn't what i hoped.
Waiting on a call from a kid who wants it, i plan on rebuilding the S into a daily/drift/show car.
Also looking at maybe, just maybe buying a muscle car, or a truck....maybe as a missle..maybe.

Hey there guys, I just picked up my new project(well two, more on that later) Its a 22B Subaru with a Turbo EJ20. It was crashed so its missing parts, has mismatched suspension and drives like crap but upon further inspection the frame is straight. So I might go race car with this one.



Now I dont know if I should upgrade this engine with some parts I have around or swap in this EJ25 Twin turbo I got a long time ago and was saving for a wagon.



What do you guy think? Worth going ahead with this project, swapping the engine or should I just scrap it and sell it. I got for almost nothing so selling for a few bucks will be profit anyways.

Nice Car sparco BUT i'm Pretty sure a TDI is a Volkswagen so you either have a 525tds or a 525td
just to let you know.

Well another Update on my Daily Driver i picked up some Parts from a Small Shop in the Desert.
Took a few Pics while waiting.


i'm loving it it is an awesome Car with awesome sound.



Tinted everything. Rear Lights, Headlights and Windows.

Got my new Mr. Sir camber arms and My brembo Brakes today. They were a quick and easy install I am very pleased with the manufactures. In addiction I adjusted the front coils, dropping the front .5 inches and adjusting the camber to the -2 setting. Really liking the stance it sits aggressively. What do you guys think I should go for next? thinking about a lip, or maybe a new project since this daily needs to stay functional. any suggestions/ sales out there?

New brakes and chamber arms in:


New functional stance. .5in drop in the front and -2 camber. looks mean

If you looking for a Real Project look for something really cheap without Rust
maybe early 90s cause those Cars are simple and easy to repair by yourself.
I just picked up this thing for 100$ cause it wouldve been pressed into a cube
and i don't wanted it to go to waste.



If you could tell me what you want i got an awesome Junkyard near me whos selling whole
cars for cheap i could have a look if i can find anything youd like.

Took the S out to see how she would do with her new SR, and i think she likes it.



And my new project got here, and so did my new LS.

I bought this awesome rust free, immaculate perfect spotless okay conditioned missile candidate. The previous owner blew up the KA that was in it...and he had a S10 with a carbed 4.3, and that's what the 200 has now..a pretty basic 4300 series V6...with like...ya know...248 thousand miles under it's belt, let alone the 200+ the 200sx has.

Bought an E36 320i for 900 euros from some guy down the road. It's pretty much rust-free, and engine runs smooth. Has some minor cosmetic "issues", like the front bumper is held up by zip-ties, and the trunk having the wrong color. It's also missing parts of the exhaust system.

It's standing on some boring steelie rims, with almost new tyres all around. It has complete black leather Vader interior from an M3 E36. And it also has some decent coilovers installed already, so that's nothing to worry about.

I worked a bit on the 22B today, decided to hold off on swapping the engine so I will rebuild the EJ20 and upgrade the turbo and intercooler. Also fixed the suspension and got some body parts from some shady dude in the desert. My buddy primed them and decided to throw some paint on the wheels for the lulz. Tomorrow I will pull out the engine and start the rebuild, I have some cash and since I sold my Raptor and one of the drift cars I have plenty of funds. Also its already registered so this might become my new daily driver if I dont end up flipping it.



Since I dont have a DD anymore I had to drive my wife's (awesome) Audi all the way to my secret storage location to check on that other project I mentioned.



Sadly, the condition is not as good as it was described, I dont think I will be buying another cars sight unseen. Luckily my buddy that dropped it off at the storage wants it to swap a sweet Honda engine on it so I might sell it to him.



And thats all for now, sorry for the long update guys, next time you hear from me the 22B will be hopefully done and driving the streets of Valo.

Progress: with the daily coming to a close (thinking about a lip or lip kit) I decided to follow the advice of DeXXter and hit up the junkyard. Sure enough I a fairly decent Toyota mr2 under an awning near the back. Talking to the owner of the yard, he tells me that the car came in as a high mileage parts car that is a "wreck" only because the air bags were deployed. someone hit the curb hard im guessing. as you can see it has some surface rust but I made quick work of that when I got it home this shell cost about 550, cant decide on making it a track car or a stance car. either way I have a whole new suspension coming in for it. I think im gonna go tien with this one

After many painstaking hours of sanding and grinding away rust, got it all prepped for paint. thinking blue

Well i bought a not so great condition donor car, not that it had a whole lot i wanted, but the URAS kit was still worth something.



I took the the over fenders, i took the roof spoiler and Kouki tails, coupe hood, and bought a set of used fenders for the Missile. I also bought spacers, new HR Ultra low coils and camber bolts, to limit body roll, and get the desired fitment. The car was doing great, almost on rails, but the carb'd V6 was having problems keeping up with the demand.




I was having so much fun i forgot that i was running rather lo-pro tires, doing lap after lap i was just roasting tires, and it caught up with me as the right rear blew after the final corner.




Never knew how much fun a little fo-three could be, at roughly 190hp with 3.27 gears, and a welded diff.

Hi, so about 2 months ago i spotted this nice, clean looking S15 going through an auction in Japan and thought i should give it a shot and put a reasonable bid in for it. I ended up winning and the car was now being shipped to Ireland. The S15 arrived just 2 days ago at the Dublin port and i made a journey to come and pick it up. The car is in great condition apart from a few scratches on the front bumper and the rear left quarter panel. The interior is a bit worn out but that's not a big deal as i will be changing most of the things in the car anyways. Under the bonnet there is nothing special, just an ordinary SR20 with i'm not exactly sure how many HP at the moment. Anyways the most important thing is it runs without problems and it will surely be upgraded as the time goes on. So here's a few pics;

Thats an awesome S15 :O but you should get some new Rims.

Update on the Galant.


Just after i bought it i realised i dont know what to do with the Car
but a few calls later a Friend of mine showed up with a 2JZ Fully Tuned and Turbocharged.


We got a few Cans of Silver PlastiDip and sprayed it abit also got Rid of that
cheap Alpinestar Decal.


so we started to fit it into the Car. we spent about 10 hours straight working on the Car and it started on the
first try.


I picked up some Drag Tires cause it wouldve been a waste to not try out that Beast
and i nailed a 10,675 on the Quater.
I have come here to chew bubblegum and kick ass... and I'm all out of bubblegum

Hello everyone. Thought I might as well join in.
So I went to my garage today, only to find my Granddad's Caprice in there.


Dusted and with a mispainted door, he left a note on it:
"Please make it slower. Sincerely, Grandpa"
It's the first time someone's ever asked me to detune his car, but what I was really wondering is how can this thing be fast. Until I open the hood.

He had a racing engine on it! Now I knew why he wanted to detune it. No clue how he got it.
So I was looking around to find a slower engine, until I received a call from my friend. He was cleaning his garage which was filled with random stuff, and he had this disassembled i6 engine sitting around. He said he wanted to give it to me to repay for all the favours I've done for him. I accepted his offer, and brought it home.

After assembling the engine and painting the mispainted door, this is how it looked.



I called my granddad to come pick it up. When he came over, he told me to keep the engine, and he even told me how he got it. He started talking about how he liked racing in his youth, and other stuff.
So now, I had a V8 Engine, and all I need is a car to fit it on.
I called my friend to thank him, and then he slapped right in my face the words:
"I have a Mustang sitting around, thought you might be interested."
Who knows what that dude has in there! So I went to pick that up too.
I got it home, but what I saw after cleaning off the junk that covered it was terrifying... here's what I saw:


He told me he tried to remove some panels. Not really what I had in mind. Door was broken, rear bumper collapsed and fender was well... broken too.
Did a small test to see if the V8 engine fits in

Yes it does! So I started working on it. Until...

Sideskirt fell. So, that's where I started working on it to make it driveable.
Progress pictures coming soon.
(So what do you think? Is it good enough?)

Not much new with the Bimmer.. Got myself an M-Tech kit, and some M3 mirrors for cheap. All in Alpine white, so now I have even more to paint, unless I decide to repaint the whole thing.

Apart from repainting the car, my main goal now is to find a nice set of rims, and the rest of the exhaust system.
