Fuck it, after putting a new engine in, I think I'm gonna stop with what I got. I do need to fix a few things though. New list:

New axles, ball joints, wheel bearings (both axles have ripped boots and both ball joints are toast). Prolly still upgrade to 2nd gen/pt shit.

MS, it's halfway installed and I gotta learn how to use all the shit in it for our Busa project

Custom intake, it's cheap and I got some spare manifolds, plus we have a tig welder now :)

Lexan windows, I'll be doing it to the circle track car so might as well do them to this one, along with the ACR. Prolly leave the door windows and rear defrost window as glass though so I can roll them up/down and also so I can see in the fuckin winter.

That's about it, we'll see how she does but I got other stuff to work on than my DD :)

Lol, it's getting a SOHC on Monday and then I'm gonna just leave it for a while till that one blows up. It'll likely get a new engine in the spring that I'm gonna build for it, hopefully I can build two good ones so my ACR has one too cuz I wanna get that thing running too.

It's alive again!!! Mostly rebuilt 2.4 was put in (new bearings, headgasket, head bolts, clean crank). Runs great although I think the radiator may be leaking, we'll see. Going to track with new engine on the 15th pending weather.

Well right now there is a '95 SOHC in it with a 3.55 trans that's nearly impossible to get into 3rd (you gotta jam that bitch in there and half the time it don't go, just grinds. Glad the dude wants it back cuz he "rebuilt" it. What a lousy job), and the shifter cable broke so 2nd, 4th, and R are a bitch to get into as well cuz the cable goes limp and I constantly miss 2nd lol. I guess the only gears you can get into easily ATM are 1st and 5th, how worthless. This thing is slow as shit. Oh well, things will be better. Here's the new engine build I'll be doing in November/December in Engines class.

Bottom end:
- 2.4 (of course), have two of them. Will take the best looking one/parts of the two and get the crank machined at a shop for .025" OS bearings
-SRT oiling system (oil pump and pan, water pump, timing stuff)
-Ed Peters oiling mods (if I don't get wtf he says on the DVD I'll have Jeff show me)
-SRT-4 crankscraper (no more spun bearings)
-Almost new 2002 PT rods/pistons (getting them for free :))
Head:
-Have a DOHC head that's clean as hell and already decked .040"
-Crane 18's (getting these from DJScorpio67 for free, well I gotta replace his engine and crap first but that's simple)
-Crower springs (already got them)
-Mild port job, or will let my buddy that ran low 11's N/A last year in his frankenstein b20 hatch
-1 mm OS valves (needs new valves anyways)
-AEM 3-bolt adjustable cam gears with Booger spacers
-PT/2.7L valvetrain (I have that too, it's been in 3 different heads now lol)

Trans/drivetrain:
-3.94 with Phantom Grip (good enough for me, it's free in the pile of stuff from Denny)
-2nd gen/Shadow axles
-ACR knuckles with 2nd gen bearings (got the knuckles in the garage)
-Prothane bushings (got them)

PCM (lol):
-MS of course, v3.0 board, MS-II chip (it's ready to go in now but I need a wideband)
-JAW wideband, it's cheap and works just fine

That's about it for now, I basically need to buy just the wideband, oiling/timing stuff, and gaskets and it's ready to go together. Oh yeah, suppose I need ball joints and the axles/wheel bearings. Also need a new harness cuz this one has been hacked up way too many times for my liking.

Shooting for mid-13's on street tires (these ones on the ghetto painted R/T rims look sticky as hell) with a good tune on E85. Goal is 190 whp, and it should easily last me another 3-5 years before needing anything. Then I can work on my ACR. :twisted:

Engine that's getting rebuilt (still runs, just knocks a bit):
Image

Head, needs a bit of cleaning but I'll get to that:
Image

.043" off please:
Image

Unorthodox Racing UDP, race version, and 7 piston/rod combos (figure I'll be able to find 4 that fit nicely :lol:):
Image

SRT-4 Oil pump and Oil pan, still need water pump and filter adapter:
Image

Image

Fast Fabs header (apparently last hand-built one they made):
Image

Dynomax 2.5" exhaust, cherry bomb in the middle (from Tainted/Big Mike's old 205 whp 2.0L car), and brand new Crower 4g63 valve springs:
Image

Exhaust dump right before bend going to muffler:
Image

Got a lead on some cheap brand new SRT rods locally so I'll prolly get those. I'm thinking about spraying the piss out of this engine :shock:

They are on page one, nothing special it looks basically bone stock except for the headlights and bronze rims (I'll fix that soon, just need to put those tires onto 2 of the R/T rims in the trunk).
