That's crazy how your timing went out of whack that bad. So glad it didn't tear up the head/pistons.

Latest update.

Somehow the final drive bearing failed and destroyed nearly every gear in the trans. :(

I have procured a CTR tranny at a great deal, ordered a 4.9 FD for it, found a 89-91 GSR 5th gear (shorter) and swapping in my kaaz.

Anyone want to buy a OE Type R LSD with the stock 4.4 final drive and ring gear? :p

Well Mike - it's really a good thing you just put the toy away (I remember when you were considering selling it) for a while to attend to "Fatherly" duties in life. Got things squared away nicely and back to some recreational fun.

Good job with it!

She is all back together. Found a crack in my windshield though. Took her for a spin, feels good man. :)

Looking great. Wish I was in a situation to take the Type R trans off your hands. I have a little side project that I've yet to post about and the LS trans is definitely the weak link.

Blew up the motor this weekend. :( 2nd session on Sunday coming onto the front straight, car started to miss which I thought was an ignition problem, then puff of white smoke... Pulled the plugs to find this in cyl #2:


Looking for a new motor, anyone have a B18C they want to part with?

I'll post video later.

car is fucking cursed
Agreed..

Seriously considering a part out and getting something totally different.. who knows.. :\ Maybe just the motor was cursed? Serious bad luck with it. Maybe just throw in a completely stock R motor..
