    #1 - buy an sir2 from hmotors. 2575 shipped.
    #2 - buy some steelies and snows from tire rack - 438 shipped

    the sol will be road ready soon :D

    If anyone wants to help this weekend- I'm tearing about the sol- at least all but the motor. drain all the fluids, put all the parts, turbo shit, gauges, etc into boxes and stuff. maybe i'll do a little this week... we'll see.

    my motor ships thurs steve said, and i should have it either before of just after thanksgiving. that gives me 3 weeks to get it in, tweak it up, and get it road worthy for inspection :)

    I don't have a heater inthe garage, so bring an old sweatshirt if you're stopping by.

    and call first- cuz i may be doing soemthing else :)

    Put it on your christmas list, I bet you can get enough ass kissers to donate money :)

    Wtf are you going to do about the bumper support/frame from cramming a FMIC in there? or is that just another stage of "weight reduction"?

    Fuck you guys. Try walking outside your house and having your car not be where you left it. $10,000 gone in less than one second. :angry:

    I doubt the inspection folks are going to pull his bumper cover off to look for the bumper support.

    I say once you get the b16 in there put the turbo on it and make 225-250whp on 8psi. Daily drive that muthafucka until you get all the other shit worked out. I hate to think about your absurdly expensive turbo setup sitting in a box for months....then again you've had that absurdly expensive car(not the actual car, just all the shit you did to it) sitting in the garage for god knows how long

    ...it pains my soul

    i didn't get the lsd cuz hmotors was sold out. i'm on a pretty tight time frame, so i got what they had in stock. oem lsd's suck anyway. not worth the extra $300 IMO. Quaiffe is the only way to go :) and besides, this is my daily driver motor.. i don't need an lsd to get to work. hell, my car barely warms up and i barely finish a cigarette by the time i get to work. lol

    do i NEED help= no, not really. theres plenty of local peeps who will be stopping by i'm sure. and besides the real work won't be until the sir gets here anyway.

    If I get the AE86 taken care of before your work starts, then I'll bring up the Heater and my hands to help turn so wrenches. ;)

    OEM LSDs are just fine. I've never had any problems with mine, and it's really helped improve the driving dynamics of the car. If you're going to make crazy power and launch really hard at the drag strip all the time, then you might want to ditch the OEM LSD and get a Quaife.

    Sweet, I'm not looking for big power anyway. The only things that I plan on doing to it will be header, fuel managment (Hondata or Uberdata) maybe some mild boost in the future.
