So I decided to sneak out of the garage whit the SC300 on the trailer to test the new engine that we bought, the info that we got at the engine when we bought it was that it produces around 740hp.
At the track the car perfromed excelent I am happy whit it, and the results made me let out some happiness tears, also met a lot of famouse drag racers on the strip and few of them liked how the SC300 runs...
Here is a photo of the CCTV camera that took photos of the cars when they pass the 1/4 mile mark.

It's been some time since our Chevy got some love! We already got all the LS2 parts but we couldn't test it cause it didn't have a battery yet. So i bought this Optima Red top battery at a nearby store for V$220, wasn't cheap but it's more than good enough for this LS2. After this was sorted we took the Chevelle to ASM Auto Upholstery in Dallas to get a completely new interior. I asked them to add bucket seats and a Nardi steering wheel as well, and they did just that. It cost a hefty V$2500 but the final results are fantastic! All this took around a week so today we brought it to a dyno test to chip tune the LS2 and adjust the turbos so it will run at its full potential.


After some test runs and adjustments it reached around 900HP, we almost shredded the dyno with it!!!

I'm really happy with the new interior, and some little details like these nice orange stitches on the steering wheel, it matches perfectly.
They installed Recaro seats too but i forgot to take a photo of them. :P

Some more news: We are going on a christmas road trip to meet Harrison in Arizona and the guys in California, but sadly Mikingo won't be with us, because he got a call from a friend of his somewhere in United Kingdom, he invited him to his crew there. We will miss him, but we understand that he couldn't say no to his good friend.
Mikingo, have fun in the UK and hope you can visit us sometimes! :)

@Harrison15 See you in a few days in Arizona, and @GoverningNick, ThatBoostedGuy, Smokiegun in California. :)

Looking good mate, we only have to paint that bodykit now. :)

Added 8 minutes later:

Well maybe that will have to wait, because today we began our Christmas trip to Arizona and California. 3Style and cate are also going, we took the R32s so it will be a great Skyline meeting with ThatBoostedGuy (that guy with the boosted R32 :P ) and Harrison, and also the other guys in Cali. See you soon and more pics when we get there!

So while cruising down the road, we overtook some slow guy and just as I wanned to return to the right lane, Lagano tried to do a rolling pull on me whit his R32, and from the moment I saw it I couldn't hear my engine couldn't hear anything except Cate going nuts "Floor it flooooor it floooor it.....", and so I did downshifted from 5th to 3rd and floored the throttle....Here is the result (Photo made by Cate)

Sorry for the delay on this update, i was really tired when we came back home. Well, 3StyleLTU got his hands on his 240SX right away, he wasn't tired cause he wasn't driving. :P Anyway here is our Christmas trip.
As you heard from Nick, we met at his place on tuesday like we already said. Before that we helped Smokiegun with the engine swap for his MR2, then we went to Nick's together, we arrived in late afternoon so it got dark quickly. Boosted was already there with his R32, i like his new bodykit. And no doubt i like Nick's cars as well! If he writes about nice cars he definitely knows how to make one. Especially that 911! It's really a rarity these days. And that yellow is so bright that i almost became blind. xD

"But what's that red thing on the left?" you may ask.

That's right, Smokiegun's Onevia just got a new paintjob!! It looks really good with those rims. Maybe he will only have to change that Bride seat now. :D

Driftphantom was a little late because he had to fit the new rims on his Integra. I'm not really a fan of this crazy camber but it surely stands out.

After he arrived at Nick's place we talked about each other's rides for some time, then we went for a night cruise around LA. When we stopped to take some photos, i asked Nick if i could borrow his Porsche for some time, because one of my childhood dreams was to drive a 911, especially a 1st generation. He wasn't sure about letting me drive it cause it's quite expensive, but i convinced him. :P It was a great feeling! Well i already drove a 944 back then in Slovenia, but this 911 is simply one of the best classics ever, i just had to try it.

Benjamin probably woke up this neighbourhood with his R32. :))

We had a really good time with the guys in Cali, next morning we went to Arizona to check out Harrison's beast. We did a couple of drag races with Benjamin's R32 but it didn't have a chance against his R33, it's one of the most powerful cars i've ever seen. Harrison took some pics but forgot to send them. :facepalm:

@Driftphantom, Smokiegun, GoverningNick, ThatBoostedGuy It was awesome to go for a cruise with you guys, let's do it again sometime! :)

Skyline Meet, December 2016


So as you all know, Phonexius and Lagano went on a road trip, and stopped by Phoenix, AZ for some time.


Knowing they were coming, I called a few local friends and put a post up on a message board. The response that day, however, was far more than I was expecting, all from Skyline owners only! (All other cars were parked in another section of the lot.)

You're counting correctly: that's 10 Skylines, including four R32s, four R33s, and two R34s - and four GT-Rs among them all.

Panning from one side of the row to the other:

This was a nice, clean pair of mostly stock Skyline GTS examples, one an R32, one an R33.

I had seen the R33 before - the driver brought it to the meetup I set up in January 2015 - but I was seeing the R32 for the first time, and apparently the owner was local! It was a clean example, in a nice coat of Super Clear Red - the same color Jake's car was in.


Lagano's and Phonexius' cars, both looking good. Phonexius had the third most powerful car at the meet at 750HP, after my R33 and an R34 GT-R from Canada. I was in awe, despite having something impressive in my own possession.

I was also impressed by the quality of Lagano's car, which I hadn't looked at much before this. The SR20 swap made the car sound better than I'd have guessed, and I'm an RB purist most of the time!


My car and Jake's. Not much to say here, other than it was good to see these two great machines among others of their kind.

I still look at Jake's car sometimes and wonder if there's anything I could have done better. But I keep deciding his car is mostly a slightly different style, not better or worse. That said, I sometimes think I should talk him into getting some xenon headlights like on my car.


The blue R34 is owned by a local, who came to the Jan '15 meet. It's mostly stock, but still an absolutely clean and enviable car. I'd asked a few times about a going price, but the only answer I got was a smirk.

Meanwhile, the owner of the black R34 brought it down from Alberta, Canada, to show off. And with good reason: this haunting shadow of a car was probably the most impressive at the meet, and I have little doubt that he would have beaten me handily in a race. Down on horsepower relative to mine, but built as an overall better balanced package, and with more of a track focus than mine. All things considered, I think the R34 would have better traction. But that's all speculation on my part.


Finally, these two very nice visually customized GTS cars came from the west coast - one from Oregon, one from California.

I liked the R32 in particular, although the R33 was a general favorite because of its status as a clean-looking street drift style car.


Another picture of Phonexius' R32 and my R33. I was glad to finally get to look at his car up close, after having heard about it a lot.


The two R34s again. I said earlier that I thought the Canadian owner would be showing off, but perhaps that was envy showing - the owner was actually really humble about the car, which I thought was a masterpiece and thought was worth bragging about.


Later in the evening, when most of the other people coming to the meet had cleared off, I took some photos of my car next to the R32 alone.

This ended up being a nice prequel to the one on one test that was about to come next.

No photos of the actual short race we did, which ended up being in a quiet, abandoned alley in the warehouse district. Phonexius' car was impressively fast, and he piloted it well - definitely something worth being proud of. Needless to say, though, the advantages of AWD and an extra 250 horsepower became clear rather shortly.

That was one of the few times I had done a launch from a dead stop in the R33, and I managed to surprise even myself with the acceleration. I have no idea what the time was, because we weren't timing it and I was too focused elsewhere to be able to give a good estimate of time.


After that, we made our way back to the Arizona branch of VStanced Garage to double check our cars. I gave Phonexius and Lagano a few VStanced license plate frames and stickers.

So now our Stang's surgery is in progress :D

Meanwhile i tried to fit the R33 rims Benjamin had on his R32 before, and they fit my R32 as well. They are a bit wide, maybe i'll tuck them in the fenders and lower it later.

3Style's 240SX looks good, but he had some problems with the SR20 as you've seen a while ago. He's not sure what to do but we will see.


I also went for a drive with my Chevelle, drifted a lot and spun out once. :P So maybe i need some bigger rims and tires cause it's difficult to drift such a heavy car with so much power.

More updates for the Stang soon, there's a lot of work with it right now! ;)

So me and Lagano arrived in Phoenix, Arizona in one piece and we are currently at Harrisons HQ!
While working on our SC300 we took the 6speed manual out and we installed a 5 speed manual made for drag racing and since we didn't knew what to do whit it we dropped it to harrison as a late birthday present for his Supra MK IV.
He invited us to spend the night at his place and finish our buissnes tomorrow morning and then head back to the Side To Side HQ to finish preparing the mustang for startup.

Thanks for the 6 speed transmission! It's going to make a huge difference to the Supra build. I had been holding off on putting a manual in because of how expensive they are, but now I have no reason not to just go for the swap!
