My Projects.....
« on: 04:42:02 PM / 07-Aug-07 »
Well here are most of my projects. I'm not going to focus on 2 of the cars because I'm only fixing those to then sell and regain some space in my driveway and garage. Those 2 would be the silver celica gt notch in the garage next to the s12, and the red 92 t-bird s\c next to my mustang. The 200sx is all original right now with 70,000 miles. Bought it off ebay from a guy in Ohio, and attempted to drive it home. Thats where the fun began....  Rocker arm shaft snapped literally at the Ohio/Indiana border. Took it to some supposed nissan specialists by my house. Got it out of the shop and drove it for 2 months until the turbo blew. It's been sitting in the garage for almost a year and I'm finally starting to work on it. So far I've taken out the exhaust manifold/turbo assembly and everything related. Also took off the entire exhaust system for shits and giggles. As soon as the celica gone and out of the garage the front end is coming off and i'm going to start getting it ready for a front mount and T-25. By the time it's done it'll have a sr t-25, front mount, 2.5" turbo back, and maybe some other little odds and ends (b.o.v etc.). Without further adue here she is.....

Next is my 93 240sx coupe I just bought about a month ago. Paid $650 for it, and it runs/drives good, but has 197,xxx miles. Seems to be mechaincally sound other than it needs front rotors and pads real bad. I was told the pressure plate isn't fully releasing ethier, which is supposedly the reason it takes an extreme amount of strength to get it into first sometimes. Clutch pedal is also real real short and close to the floor. I don't know if thats a result of this being a 5 speed swap or what but the clutch pedal is maybe an inch from the floor and only needs about a 1/4 inch of travel and boom the clutch is in. Car also will creep forward in first at a stop light with the clutch in. Similar to what an automatic will do in D if you don't hold the brakes on at a light. I'm thinking that has to do with the pressure plate too? All in all not a bad car, only thing I've done to it so far is put a starter on it. Once the mustang is up and running this won't have to be my daily driver so I'll be able to start working on this seriously. Car kinda has a special meaning to me now, as I bought it the night my friend was shot and killed at a laundry mat parking lot 3 blocks from my house. I've since given it his name in rememberance.......Roger.

Next is my 1991 mustang gt. This was my first car I've ever had and I've owned it since I was 14 (I'm 18 now). Before that it was my dads toy and he owned it for 4 years prior to giving it to me. I've had a lot of great times in this car, and ironically it's been the best car I've owned for gas mileage (25 mpg highway with regular 87 octane), the fastest (low 15's stock), and best in the snow (wide rear tires, and 2 12" subs in the hatch kept this thing planted nicely in 2 Chicago winters. I've driven this thing in 8" blizzards and it wouldn't stop. Right now it is awaiting a T-5 swap as it was an auto till I blew the it up this past January. That's okay though because I had been planning the 5 speed swap since I was given the car, and now I'm finally forced to do it. Right now it's all stock except for flowmaster dumps on the exhaust, bbk cold air kit, and Bfg drag radials on the back. I have a lot more parts in the garage for this baby as soon as it's up and running again. Can't wait to hear it run with long tube headers, a catless h-pipe, and the 2 flowmaster mufflers. Now that there's no emissions testing on OBD1 cars in the Chicago area, I don't have to worry about taking the cats off.
