That CA was a **** LOAD of work to make not a giant piece of ****... Most of it was throw away parts, or in need of heavy machining.

So far, so good. Glad to see you started a build thread!

Thanks homie. Anyways. Put in a little work this weekend:

Ex girl-friend hooked it up on taking my s13 cores and getting me some re-manned z32 rears.


Got my fronts sandblasted, and got em painted statutory grape to match everything else.


Picked up the z32 rear dust shields/ 2+2 NA e-brake cables.


Also made up some janky radiator brackets from some sheet metal laying around, and fitted my radiator hoses.

Spent some time laying on my back and ripped the old e-brake cables out, and routed the z32 cables through the subframe, and helen keller fabbed up some brackets. A helpful hint to bolt those ****ers through the floor was told to me, so I did. Now my e-brake works, again.

My buddy always used the term statutory grape to describe awesome purples.
So i painted my ish purple, and now im using it.

Thanks Daigle!

and for power, I'm theoretically estimating in the 400ish range would make me happy.
Who knows though.

About a week and a half to go Travis came and picked up the turd and off to Wilson Speed it went.


Over the next few days, the intercooler core location was mocked up, and the cold side piping was tack welded.



Then the satan end of the wastegate dump was made.


A general concept was made up for a bash bar, so it was tacked together.


Considering the passenger side frame rail has previously been smashed in, using the stock mounting points wasn't going to be the easiest option. Coming from previously owning a subaru, a welded plate on the frame with a matching plate on the bash bar seemed like the next best idea.


Stopped by yesterday and painted the bad johnny.


I cannot begin to explain the talent and craftsmen ship that comes out of Travis @ Wilson Speed. I ABSOLUTELY recommend inquiring about anything you need custom fabbed. The next update will conclude the rest of the stuff being built/fabbed from there.
