Re: Hello

Thanks for the kind words.  My goal is to break the 200HP mark with this engine but keep it all N/A.  As of right now, the eninge is basically stock.  Any tips on reaching this goal would be appreciated.  I was thinking about cylinder head rebuild for starters, then pistons, rods, bearings, and a lighter flywheel and pulley kit.

Estimate for these plans tho is an easy $3000.00 US dollars.  What do y'all think?

Re: Hello

Thanks, well it took a while longer than I would have liked.  Here are the most recent upgrades before I installed the C60 6 spd and how it sits now.  Hopefully will have on the road by summer next year.

Re: Hello

Not much been happening, mostly since I hate working outside in the cold.  

But I did order some Prothane polyurethane bushings for the front control arms.  Also I took this opportunity to paint the subframe which I'll get more pictures of the final product later.

Also, I got the CV shaft for the driver side from a 95 MR2 Turbo, but I forgot to get it with ABS.  But, this is the first opportunity I've had to compare the Corolla shaft with the MR2 shaft so overall length will be the same.  I think it will work just fine.  The shaft with the NAPA sticker is the Corolla shaft.

I also ordered some Polyurethane motor mounts. These will help a bunch to with putting every ounce of power to thee wheels.

I thoroughly cleaned and finished painting everything this weekend.  Plan to get the bushings pressed in this week.
