I picked up this car cheap in early 2004. I've done most of the work to it myself except for tuning at higher boost levels. The original plan was for a stripped down drag car that is street legal so it can be driven to the track. I trailer it to the track now, and drive it on the street with an open downpipe.

Oct 2004:
The original setup. D16Z6, eagle rods, srp pistons, block guard, t3t04e 60 trim. The way I notched the block.




The old motor coming out, the new one going in. (in no particular order) The d15b2 intake and exhaust looks odd on a z6, just ran it like that to get it through e-check. The vice grips were the only thing holding the distributor on for the testing. :)

Making progress, started it for the first time on mpfi.



Aug 2005:
My laptop started acting weird evertime I plugged it into the cig lighter. Expecting it to be a voltage problem I checked the battery. 19.3 volts my meter said!!! No wonder, made in Cincinnati, nothing good can come from there. :)



OBX cam gear. The thing is solid as a rock.

Got a slightly used 1990 Si transmission cheap. I've seen a lot of bad input shaft bearings, but none like this.


Added an obx lsd while I was in there. And some gearspeed coated syncros.

Feb 2006:
The first gauge setup, had to change it for the cage.


A buddy gave me a sticker for it.

Mar 2007:
New 24.5x8.5 slicks: The breaking of shit has commenced. :(
Busted flange.


Rewelded the flange and ditched the exhaust system. Always coasted past the cops anyway. :)


The next week:
Busted both axles and the clutch all in one expensive run down the track.


And it still ran quicker than most of the cars there. :)


Apr 2007:
Yay, I didn't bust anything. Boo, the first half of the track was slippery, then it started raining.
