    I say poor mans type r, although I should have just bought one with what I've put into it. Hope to have it finished in the next couple of weeks waiting on parts to ship, tuning and dyno results later.

    GSR block punched 20 over
    JE Pistons 12.5.1
    Cryo'd Factory GSR Crank and Eagle H beams
    Balanced and blueprinted

    RM Springs and retainers

    damn ups rerouted my hondata gasket or the intake manifold would be on right now ... I could have driven 3 hours and picked it up... instead it takes 4 days.

    1) nice build. i love seeing a spotless engine. i can't wait to see the numbers.
    2) what tranny are you using?
    3) your engine bay is dirty as hell. shoulda cleaned it with the engine out.
    4) nice ludacris cd.

    the engine is so clean it just makes the engine bay look dirty as hell :)

    Ok so the bay is really dirty, theres like a waxy buildup i cant get off without industrial solvents and then id have to paint it and I don't want to paint the bay right now.

    the trans is a rebuilt GSR

    as for Ludacris, thanks it's a mint condition case ... wish i still had the CD.

    Don't worry, it makes the engine look even cleaner. Too bad my whole engine bay is that dirty.

    Update hondata gasket came in, i for some reason thought they were opaque but I would have been wrong.

    Also finished almost all the wiring. The nasty buttconnector is the last wire I need to run (needs to be longer to get to the fuse box). Radiator and fans came in today also I'm going to run them together with a relay so both fans cool but I'm waiting on my overly busy friend to come and weld the lower radiator brackets in for me.

    Update from Hy Tech as well, dual bypass acoustic and 22inch resonator should be here by the beginning of next week. (crosses fingers)

    Nope 500 whp, lol , no I built it with 220 + in mind. I'm not saying it will make it, but I've taken another guys parts list combed over it and spent a lot more money (lot better parts) and he made 210 on the shops mustang dyno. So who knows, time will tell.

    i wouldnt use that IM....

    i almost bought that same manifold until my friend went to the dyno and lost 5hp and 6-8lbs after switching from a skunk pro IM..


    he said it was because thats mostly used as an FI manifold

    EDIT:
    btw
    it was a 12.1CR lsv

    I've had good reviews from friends turbo and NA on the manifold so I'm sticking with it for now. Maybe after its running I can get one and swap it out and compare. Not saying you're wrong.

    Update: after 5 weeks of waiting my cams are in the hands of fedex and should be here this Friday. No more word from Hy Tech and no muffler or resonator yet, hope its here by Friday and i can get everything together with tunning next week but we'll see.

    update.

    did the type r lma's today.
    Cam's are here and cam gears are installed, going to try and install them this weekend.

    Got my tires mounted and balanced. Azena RT-615's on 15x7 5zigen fn01rc's. Bad pictures but i think they look good (better than the car).

    Muffler no word on it yet. I got a hold of him Monday said he hoped to have them out by Friday (hope being the key word). :shrug:
