no real update just been dealing with my 91 talon atm just bought a 2nd gen auto trans and ratchet shifter installing a 20g turbo and tune. The 18det I had in my car I gave to Raven so I can commit to the LS. just a lot of life stuff going on including school.

Car still sits smh. Had to battle covid and still waiting on my talon not working doesn't help either. picking up a part time job at auto zone soon and hopefully doing lyft as well will get me caught up and I can get ahead on these projects.

Ok so I’m about a week or so away from bringing my beast home got the garage all cleaned up gotta move a few things around but for the most part there’s room for her. First thing I’m doing is pulling the wheels and throwing her on stands as I look for front suspension stuff. I’m going to be running an LS. But I want to get the suspension set-up and wheels and tires before I dive into a motor build. Probably gonna run a 5.3 with a nice cam and some nice equal length headers and tune and see how she does. I eventually want to go turbo but we’ll see how I feel after the n/a set up.

The plan is to build a hoon car. A streetable drag/drift all around fuckery vehicle. But still be able to drive it to work or the grocery store….

I can't wait to see how your build progresses! Have you made the decision on drive-by-wire or cable throttle? I'm looking forward to seeing how you run the exhaust line(s).

I haven’t decided yet like I said the motor is going to be the last thing I want to get the suspension situated first

She is finally home after sitting for 8 years she is finally back in my possession. I have a lot of work ahead of me. If you have IG (Instagram) go add my s12 page. Project_Phoenix_s12 I’m about to get down and dirty.  Gonna clean her out to start she’s filthy. Then make a list of stuff I need… I’m just gonna start chipping away at it. I don’t know when she’ll be running hopefully within a year provided funds are good.

Wondering if I should go 5 lug I think 5 Lug has more wheel options.. I’m just obviously not at that point yet just have ideas rolling around in my head….

I'd recommend against 5 lug. It was very hard to find a 5x114.3 wheel that is low enough offset for the S12, and it's in a goofy 16" diameter. As you know I went with Rota Grid V's, and there's not many wheels that low of offset... in fact I can't think of a single other wheel that isn't a steel wheel. If you have S13 suspension you might get more clearance in the front, and then maybe you can deal with a higher offset wheel. I used to think rears have a lot more room but at the ride height I'm at, I had to roll the crap out of the fenders and I still seem to be rubbing tire. The fenders are rolled a lot more than I would want to do on a street car. My effective offsets (because I have spacers front and rear) are +10 front, +15 rear. Still rubbing the outer fender in the rear, but without the 5mm spacer I'd rub the inner wheel well.

4 Lug wheel choices seem much better these days compared to 10-15 years ago.
