Default MDoe8's not so ordinary build thread

Purchased this 1999 SOHC rust bucket for $1200 a while back.

I'll start it off with just a few pictures and walkaround video (after i spent a dozen hours cleaning it), I've got a bazillion more but feel like being lazy right now.

Let the flaming begin. Short term goal is a modest pump gas 600whp after i build my mild twin turbo setup.

***EDITED WITH A BUNCH OF BUILD PICTURES, MORE WILL BE EDITED IN A POST BELOW***


How I got the car...barely running, all broken, all rusty, all beat up, torn seats, smelly, etc.




Wheels and a decent bit of cleaning. Bumper rigged together





Headlights polished and Halo'd


Removed 99 front bumper for a 97

No those are the more expensive of the ebay ones, VERY happy with how they turned out. This pearl white was definitely more of a matte white when i got it lol. Thanks!


***EDITED WITH MORE PICTURES***

Engine, Trans, harness, ecu, rear end (installed rear steering delete kit as well), and Rear end Mounts bought




Took a ton of time cleaning it


Here are just some of the parts purchased, i've got a crap ton.


It's new home (my buddy in the picture is helping me with the fabbing)


Begin teardown

Yes that's an LS motor (well, technically an LQ).

ARP head studs rod bolts, new metal head gaskets, ls6 intake, new cam/pushrods/springs/injectors/etc.

that looks like a nice project. I see that you tied into the stock trans and driver side mount locations. looks like progress. Are you going to mount a vr4 subframe in the back? What trans are you going to run? Have you test fitted the trans yet?

Is this legit? I mean you said you were going to go with a TT setup and now we're seeing an lq in there? That's awesome, I'm definitely in to see progress.

Good luck on the project, I'll be following along!

(P.S. the number of white cars so far in this thread pleases me.)

I will add one more white car.

I too want to see this become rear wheel or all wheel drive.

LSX solution really sounds economical when you think about it.

haha that is ironic that there everybody who posted has a white car!

It is not tied into the stock mounts, new mounts were fabbed up on the frame rails. The motor and transmission are completely mounted and ready. I debated going T56 but I have never ran a manual valve body built auto, so I went with the monstrous 4l80e (should work well with my setup). It is a RWD setup, driveshaft will be made locally.

As for the legit tt question....yes it will be twin turbocharged as well

***EDITED WITH MORE PICTURES***


time for rust removal....ugh what a nightmare grinding it all away, patching it all up, and then spraying over it with underliner stuff. Spots all over the car, some as you can see were very bad.






More progress on engine bay and trans tunnel

The engine looks like its way to low, unless you haven not give it the correct height.
What rear you have in mind Ford 8.8 or a 9inch? and I assume you will be using a ladder bar setup unless you plan to hack the rear for a full 4 link.
