Hopefully spring is around the corner. Its been a long winter and we got tons of snow! Unfortunately this meant a lot of downtime for my car and the work being done to it. There were a lot of items on the list (redo interior, redo sub box, rear disc conversion, valve cover, and others) but the new engine and turbo setup was first. After sending the engine off to the machine shop it came back with the my new internals.


The engine was finally put in the car. I got a new FITV and IAC. I also put a new throttle body on the car. Sorry for the crappy cell phone pic....

As much as everyone hates on the lights and rims, I actually like the way the car is.

Sure the lights arent my first choice, but your car pulls them off well. Not only that, your car is super clean and well done.

Keep it up.

In all reality, the car will look much better with a set of JDM one-piece headlights and will definitely look better with some red/clears on the rear. Personally I don't mind the look of the headlights, but I do mind the look of the tails. This is why there is limited pics of the rear. Plus they're just ebay crap, they fog and do everything else they shouldn't

Its Spring again, car time!!

The new engine is up and running but needs a good work out for the first 1000km. My mechanic is doing the swap and everything went well. I went and seen it a few days ago and it seemed fine until I took it for a drive. It was popping out of 1st and 3rd gear, this was an easy fix. And on the way back it started dying at idle. I'm not sure what he had going on here to cause this, I'm guessing he is going to adjust the idle screw and/or look into other causes. He may have a battle ahead of him (I'm aware of some of the issues that cause this from reading). But he said it was running fine after he did the swap....*shrugs*, I'll let him chase that issue down (plus he has more experience than I do). I was also hoping they'd clean up the block a bit better but I guess I shouldn't complain, I'll do it myself.
We decided to delete a lot of junk (canisters, ERG, sensors etc). Got a new map sensor on there and still the Skunk2 TB. The chromed ECU isn't in the car yet and I learned something new about my first turbo project as well. I did not know that I would lose HP until the turbo is on and the car is tuned. With all the new internals and such low compression the HP to the wheels is around 160HP until we get the engine worked in and then tuned with the new turbo. Hopefully this summer I can get the rest of the funds and get this thing running with the turbo.

I'll take some pics of the car when I get it back home. Until then I'll post pics of things I'm working on...., they are...
- rear disc conversion (thinking of sandblasting the rear arms and parts, or sanding.., not sure yet).
- battery relocation (got wire, need box and a coupler for front wires).
- sub-box redo - sand, sand, sand and then it needs some fabric.
- ICE - wow... i'm not sure where to start with this. To go in the car is 7" in dash dvd, brain unit for player, ipod interface to brain, new 5 1/4" door speakers, new 6x9 rear speakers, new Qlogic speaker pods w/ Alpine 6" w/ crossovers & tweeters, front AMP (300W), rear 900W AMP for two 400W clarion subs. Right now I'm trying to figure out the wiring for power. Then have to figure out where things are going to go in the car. Then figure out what amps are going to be connected to the brain unit. & .... if all goes well I'll put my old PS2 in the car too. (.,,,,,,,,, thinking I may need an extra battery). Any input on this topic is appreciated.
- HID - I have HIDs but they won't fit into the ebay POS projectors I have. If I replace the lights with JDM this still won't work. I guess I should of never bought the HIDs as they are for OEM fit (triangle locking tab). So I may figure out how to make them work with the projectors I have, I'm not sure yet.

more updates to come soon..........

EBC rear disc brakes (slotted/drilled) FTW!

I only had the car out twice since I got it back with the new engine. Today I went for my alignment appointment and was rather disappointed in the end. I had to take my bumper off to get the car in but I took the lights out and all the bolts but 2 prior. It still scraped the smallest amount on the cat while driving in. The conclusion wasn't good; parts needed:

- new drivers side tie rod ($37)
- lower ball joints needed ($181 a piece)
- camber kit recommended ($80 i think)
- labour ($60)

- Total = $600.

The guy was a nice guy, I've gone there before. For that price he said they would put a camber kit on it for me and the other items. I think he was referring to a lower camber kit (seen on newer trucks), but I think there are only upper control arm camber kits for our rides. hmmmm.
He said there was no point in doing anything because of the negative camber. He said I had some toe in which wasn't too bad (depends on your style), negative camber, and the little play in the tie rod. So we left the car alone, it doesn't pull to one side or the other anyways.
I had always assumed that I was safe and didn't need a camber kit. I have a small 2" drop. But I have .2 deg. negative camber, so I'll have to look into this, do some research....

(sorry for the dirty car, it did not get much of a cleaning yet)

Cheers.

Today i changed the speakers, was good times. (way too much pollen out this time of year).

Its funny how the Haynes manual is incorrect in the instructions on how to remove the front speaker. For those curious you have to take off the door panel to get at the speaker. Also funny how the OEM speakers are 15W! haha, that's low. Replaced those with some 250W Pioneer 5 1/4s.



I found out the hard way that I need round 6x9 speakers for the rear. doh!
I bought some new 6x9 rear speakers, but they were oval and not round. I thought this would work but it did not

[edit] fail. Its that the DX and LX have 6x9 and the EX have 6 1/2.
