I haven't posted updates in a while so here we go.

The builders listed above fell thru so "The GMR" picked up the build. They cut off the standard rear axle housing flanges and installed their full floater set-up. They also cut out the existing cage and built a new one that tucks up tighter and hides behind the posts a little beteter. The car goes to Magnaflow next week so they can mount the Turbo and build the exhaust.

Tail lights look nice!

Is that a 3 link in the back with a torque arm? Any particular reason you went that route?
It is a TCI Torque Arm. Packaging is primary reason Tim went this way. He wanted something that was going to perform well at the autocross and have great street manners.

The day @ Magnaflow with Hot Rod TV filming was great.
Turbonetics supplied 76mm Inducer Compressor/75mm Exducer exhaust/1.01 A/R

Turbonetics New Gen Wastegate & Godzilla BOV

Pushed into the corner & ready for the exhaust

Some pics of the new cage.





Hooker supplied these epic cast exhaust manifolds. They are great for tight packaging and turbo applications.

Final turbo placement may be slightly different because the radiator wasn't mounted yet.

The car was up on the lift so I snapped a pic of the rearend.

Jason from 'The GMR' talking to the camera about his full floater hubs on the Currie rearend.

Yours truly putting on his serious face for the camera.

Jose Cruz from MagnaFlow starts building the downpipe and exhaust system.






Tim's good friend and resident goofball Jeff Long looking on while tack welds are placed on the exhaust.















We ran out of daylight so we just dropped the car down and let Hot Rod TV finish up their portion of filming.

This thread was a copy & paste from the other forum but yes I do work for one of the suppliers. If I am overstepping any advertising rule boundaries just let me know.

I actually think I tried editing the first post a while back but there is no 'Edit' button. If you feel something needs to be removed by all means go for it.

I stopped by the Temple of Tapout on Friday to test fit some wheels on the car. Nothing new to report as far as the build but it won't be complete enough to be at Optima but it will be in the Turbonetics booth @ SEMA.

Ready for the Lexan windows.
