hahaha this looks like fun
I keep my car cleaner then my room
Fuck you then, I'll take my movies, box of chocolates, bottle of wine and chloroform somewhere else.
Adding an SSD to that is kinda like strapping a 3 inch stainless HKS exhaust on a geo metro.

well last of the major fab work then time to get on the engine build and finish welding stuff up then clean up and paint, still have a few things to get yet, like trailing arm kit, fuel rails and system. Then there is the fun of going though the wiring and getting stuff like headlights working right and getting the projectors that I picked up from a BMW at the junkyard mounted in. A long way to go yet but chipping away at it

not to long, like a hour and half, I think since it gets baked during the summer it was already brittle and then I did it when it was cold so it chipped right out.

we should check these out

ok seems switch is in there



wires run to here



these seem to be in decent condition



I bet the issue is here



well it seems my over all plan will work



yes the lower intake lines up when being put on backwards





so this area will be blocked while you are driving



WELL &%^$##$ not sure what happen there, but I guess it's time for a new block

I'm just here for the cat pics haha. Really though nice progress so far. Should be awesome when you get it all finished up. VQ s12 should be pretty sweet. Can't believe you wanna turbo that thing down the road, I'd be more then satisifed with the stock VQ horsepower. Then again I just got a stock ka-de in my s12 so....yeah  :tongue2:
FIrst my rims are horrible, than there ok when painted black , now my cars horrible, now my fenders are to much after i was told i couldnt do it.... Lol club s12 ftw.....  Only here have Ive been told they look like shit..... SOrry its not bone stock with crown vic rims running the stock vg making 130whp and looks generic like every other one. My car looks dope ive been told this a billion times on local forums....

Man.  Satisfied pussy everywhere in that garage!

Love the effort.  Can't wait for the next update.
I was afraid all the five gallon buckets of pain stacked four high were going to fall over

Are you going to make these as a production or just for yourself because I would be interested in buying these if it fixes the camber issue....

there are two different types, you can also widen the track with them, I widened mine by 10mm on each side
