    10/30/07 Progress: The fuel cell is in, fuel system is done. Got my injectors about a week ago, scored a set of RC 1000cc's for super cheap. The bottom end is done, the transmission is done, and the bottom end/transmission/clutch/axles are in the car. Today I finished the suspension (skunk2 drag launch springs), removed the oem sway bars, and started pulling the interior.

    11/29/07 Progress: Got the intercooler mounted, all the piping cut, got a manifold that's going to work. It's a copy of the Ebay 'Blurr' manifold. It sets the turbo out a little bit further than I'd like, and I had to trim some of my homemade bumper support to clear the wastegate, but all in all it's going to work. The suspension is finished, the fuel system is finished, all the piping is finished, and the front end/bumper/etc is all mounted and ready to go. I also got a set of Bogarts with M&H 24" slicks in and put on today, and my RDR skinnies and tires should be here next week. From this point, I only have to get the head I'm going to use put on (it's still off being ported), fab up a downpipe, pllug the harness in, and get it tuned. Should be running before new years!

    The motor is fully built. I'm looking for somewhere in the 400+ hp range.

    Borrowed some HX wheels, rolled it outside, and took some better quality pictures. Betcha can't guess what kinda dealership I work at!

    I really need to properly adjust my suspension, but I'm waiting until my 15x3.5's come in next week to mess with it.

    It did, but the cops recovered it a while back. It's already been through a motor since it got stolen! lol

    Nice shell... love the bogarts... I have the Lenso's... not shiny like your's, im jealous ;x Judging by all the Dodge Ram Pickup's in the background of that picture, you must work for Dodge... I'm sorry to hear that.. J/K =) I'm trying to get into a Honda Dealership right now but noone is looking for technicians... so I have to pretty much wait for one to quit or get fired and the list moves on... Good luck with the tune..400 should be possible with A LOT of boost. my sohc vtec turbo setup that was in my coupe made 190 @ 9psi (T25, stock engine).

    ha, the turbo i'm running is a scooch bigger than a T25...and I am planning on running quite a bit of boost.

    Nothing's wrong with working for dodge, you WANT to work for a company who's cars break all the damn time...otherwise there's no money in it!

    Haha, amen to that. If their cars break all the time, you'll always have work :)
