Default What are your build plans?!

Lets get this part of the forum going again. I know all of us have plans for our cars. Even if it is a simple intake or wheels. So what are your plans and/or what are you currently working on?

Since last years gathering I have installed: 340lph pump, stage-2 Kevlar clutch, A-FPR, SL center gauges, new boost gauge, front struts, all bushings and ball joints in the front, redone full interior, and installed a VR4 spoiler.

On the "docket": Full E85 compatible fuel system, and finish this damn AWS delete and an alignment. After the gathering will be Paint and body work.

So, what have you been or plan on doing? Pics are a bonus!

Awesome man, love how your setup looks at night. Did you just replace the lights with light blue bulbs? I wanted to do the same thing and paint my exterior black. I was getting a greddy profec ebc to match the interior setup. I haven't fully decided yet but I have my funds set aside. Right now leaning towards a 4G63 swap for a end goal of around 600whp.

Well, I recently swapped my NA plenum for a TT plenum. Also, installed some innovative motor mounts and Vogtland German springs. It has been only 4 months on the road after my engine rebuild. Most of the things I have done to the car are just maintenance replacement parts and restoration.

For this upcoming Texas gathering I want to purchase the following: braided brake lines, new calipers if I can (still have red paint from 10 years ago when I painted them back in high school XD), remove the rust from my new brake rotors(apparently I didn't properly clean them before installing them, it was not only raining but I had to install them in a rush), repair my a/c screen, fix my fuel gauge, finish my exhaust with a kooks downpipe from 3sx, 99 garnish, maybe get the wing too, legal window tint, suspension bushings, and bfGoodrich all-season tires for the front.

For next year, I want to have my sl cammed with cam gears from 3sx, momo steering wheel, and corbeau racing seats.

For my long term goals I want to purchase a 1st gen VR4 getrag transmission converted to FWD 5 spd, do a VR4 brake conversion on my SL, purchase 8:1 compression pistons, do a 99 front end conversion, and finally finish my TT conversion build. I do not see myself driving any other car, I love this thing.

Those blue lights look really nice, I already complimented you on your brakes. Did you get this kit off eBay? Or how did you do this? Something to talk about at the gathering.

Pampena stroker, dr750 turbos, 1200cc injectors, e85 and a broke bank account and homeless(but can sleep in the vr4) That's my next build.

All jokes aside, if and when, I hope not anytime soon, my engine decides to go, I will be doing a built engine and will have a power goal of 700 or 800awhp.

I should be happy with my current setup. Can't wait to get the final tuning and see what she does at this years gathering













Current build is done.
New 15g turbos
New Walbro 255lb fuel pump with AN converted fittings-Stainless steel fuel lines
3SX Hotwire Kit
New Latitude 42 Performance 2800lb clutch kit(stock disc, with 2800lb pressure plate)
New OEM Clutch Throwout bearing
New OEM Flywheel
New 25 Spline Transmission(Rebuild by 3SX) bought from EricManning
New Maximal Performance Transfercase Brace
Rebuild 25 Spline Transfercase(Rebuilt by RealMcCoy-Thanks Larry)...Upgraded hardened input spline spool
AEM Fuel Pressure Regulator
Ninja Performance Fuel Pressure Gauge
3SX Fuel Rail Loop

Chrome ECU-Tuned by Jester(Thanks Adam)

PlX Wideband(Will hook this up on Monday)

Last thing that needs to be done is breaking in the clutch(500-700 city miles) doing some fine tuning on chrome.
Then install the CXRacing/Pampena Dual FMIC(bought on black friday 2 years ago...)still in the box never opened....

Are you going to try to squeeze some more power out of it Ryan?

Man Shawn that is a lot of work buddy! I'm really looking forward to it.

Colin, yeah, I am taking steps with it though. Last year I was about 330awhp. This year I hope to be near 400awhp with the upgraded fuel and increased boost. After the gathering is paint and body. The after that my goal is 500awhp on e85.
