    Well, I decided to help my buddy with his start up business. I am not trying to post inorder to sell shit, but just wanted to give you guys some insight into what I do and where I work. I posted a while back on my struggle to find work in the corporate world but as of now I am going to get parts at cost "which is good", also have a place to build my SR20 project "which is good", and also make some coin for the car and save for next year graduate school.

    Here is a pic of our booth at a Moroso event a little while ago, these are our cars and buddies.

    Here is a nice pic of project autoX R with some nasty spoon calipers....OMG those are dope.. The kid who races this thing is also the owner of Blackforest Motorsport.

    Here we did an HID install on a 1.8T last week for a good client, and let me tell you this, the instlal was clean as fuck, the way it should be ;)

    Here we installed a Turbo back exhaust system for a WRX customer, and you should see the difference between this system and one of japans top companies unit, our system costed like 1/2 the amount..fuck jdm..lol

    Here we put on just the driver side headlamp a nice upgrade, check out the difference. Night and day for the scooby...

    thats not the half of it, we are doing a NSX clutch install, what a fucking bitch!!!!!!! that is,,can you say 20 labor hrs...the replacement clutch costs like around 1G...makes our little lower end honda maintenance look like shit.


    more pics to come, we are extending a drift/autoX page for the future, where we will be posting some of our own product line of downpipes, intercooler kits, etc..

    thanks for the props guys, so far no luck finding a perfect candidate for the 240, I am trying really hard looking but they are getting bought out pretty quick. I literally am going to have to drive 600 or so miles just to buy one.


    Loco: that is fucking nuts for that labor rate,,,crazy man.....OMG :eek: :eek:


    more pics to come...

    Yeah, it's not too far from the truth... To R&R the motor, it took me 36 hours over four days to do: http://thenew.gamesbbs.com/~vassago/pictures/celica

    Doing that R&R will put hair on anyone's chest.

    The SR should be that bad...

    is it possible to use a usdm SR out of a 200sx or nx2k... and put a RWD tranny on it, or is the sr tranny the only one that bolts to it?

    where are you from Milan?
    you probably don't want to come as far as MN but there are a few 240's for sale in the minneapolis area.... one allready has a swap and body work but you'd probably have to pull the engine and rebuild it anyway, I have a feeling the guy f'd it up good

    best of luck with the business

    Those black covers? They should just fit right over your headlights. IMO it doesn't look very good unless it's on a Java Black Pearl or WR Blue Pearl (like yours) WRX. :p

    No, they look like full headlight replacement. I don't want some covers, I need the real thing. :)

    You mean the set on the silver WRX? I dunno.


    I was looking at the blue WRX, those just look like rally covers to me. again, I dunno.

    Milan would know. I'm just talking out of my ass here. :lol:

    I'd agree that the blue one has covers. Looks like a full headlight on the silver one though....
