Its been a while since ive updated this thread because I do things slowly and I wanted to do one BIG update.. well here it finally is <img name="icon" src="http://xs-s.com/zf/images/smile/emsmile.gif" border="0">
Went to a meet called FOURBANGERS that a friend helped put together.

Installed a TRD Replica wing..
Whiteline Rear Adjustable Panhard Bar
I also received my new front tires. They're Federal 595 size 195/50/R15
I ordered a Fuel Filter from work, and it should get here 5/24. And I replaced my Brake Master Cylinder. It was my first time doing it, and it really wasnt too hard to do. Took about an hour + 30 to bleed.
Installed some D*GARAGE 50mm RCAs and lowered the front. And I just ordered some Stainless Steel braided Brake Lines, because my stock brake lines are about to burst, some of em are down to the threads. No insulation
Replaced Fuel Filter
Tranny Flush, Diff Flush, Oil Change
Install SS Brake lines
Mounted the Federals and now I rock 4 Meshies
This was all in preparation for this track event.
Here are the pics from that event Me and all my buddies (over 370 pics)
So at the track event I realized my steering wheel was WAY too big, so I got an eBay one. Its a pretty nice one <img name="icon" src="http://xs-s.com/zf/images/smile/emsmile.gif" border="0"> My seats not doing so well, getting so abused.. I might have to reupholster it. And i still cant get rid of those diamond plate floor mats lol
Since I had a nice fat deposit down for a spare engine. The guy agreed to let me pick at it for a couple parts. So I nabbed the headers and the new cat off of him. Cause my cat was rattling, and I just wanted headers. car sounds raspy like a honda at idle -3.5k. Then once I hit 4, and once TViS opens up it sounds nice. Not throaty, but not raspy. Just kinda a lil louder than stock. The exhaust leaks I caused arent helping me though, I need an Exhaust Manifold Gasket, and the 2 gaskets that go on the cat. And to make it bad, i striped one of the bolts on the head haha. **** it, this motors gonna go to a junkyard, or probly sell for peanuts.
Adjustable Cam Gears
TRD Plugs and Wires
Illegal Garage Clutch
(free T50 Tranny w/ Copper Cusco Shifter Bushing)
Has a blown headgasket.
Im gonna clean it up and organize all the AC pipes, and Oil Cooler Lines. Dump the Oil, and Coolant in the block And degrease the **** out of the outside. Once I get it cleaned up, ill start tearing it up just so I get less dirty while doing so. I already put the Headers on my current motor, I still needa put the Intake and Wireset on my current motor and rock em till I get my motor built. When I took off the clutch I found out it was pretty much toast. Ill have to get a new one.
