    Haven't updated this because of the fuckshow that is photobucket. The car made 350 horse and 330.ft lbs at 16 psi, had some small issues here and there, mainly being my friend taking it joy riding with the hood open... nice. Planning on re hosting all of the build photos somewhere else. If anyone is having luck with a 3rd party host let me know, I'm using my phone currently but I'll try to fix my thread soon. The car fucking rips.

    Not a lot to report, but somethings have been happening. I packed up my entire shop and moved, currently I have a spot allocated for the shop, but it needs insulation and electricity. The good news is it's a fair size, and It's MINE! Finally rolled the old gal outside and threw her on a trailer. Ended up sitting between an NSX and an old dodge pickup with like a 120mm turbo. Vanjen clamps and pipes done. Radiator and FMIC mounting finalized. the same guy who is doing my pipes had my crank pulley machined down so I should have plenty of room for the fan and shroud now. I decided to let him handle that as well, He's done a few of them and they look awesome. Waterjet cut type stuff. these joints are pretty sweet, I didn't even know about these things before I took it to Scott's. Fancy shit I guess. Hopefully update soon when she's finished at his place!

    Few more guages showed up, two double needle psi guages for the air, and a sw fuel guage. Also this moon single sweep tach. I rubbed the living shit out of everything with scotch bright to get the brushed look. Sacked up and bought the tools and connectors to make deutche connectors. After making these two, once you have the tools they're worth every penny in my opinion. I also installed a 12v cigarette lighter. I had the old lighter from the van, still need to grab some pics of that though. Steady rolling. I had a friend wire up the dashboard air switch panel for me and we charged the system with my shop air. I wish I could post a video of it because it's hilarious. I'll try and get one up tomorrow or something.

    Banged out some rear door cards today. I used the crank to mark the radius. I'd really like to get a real bead roller someday. Tired of asking my buddies to crank for me. Had a friend draw this up for me, he's hopefully gonna engrave it on my tank soon. Got the pipe all wrapped up. Sanded and stained the rear deck. Also sourced a battery disconnect switch that uses a key! Really happy with how it looks.

    Little update, I couldn't use the McKinney trans mount because it hung so incredibly low. It's made for running a full 3 inch exhaust to the rear of the car. Whipped up this low pro model a few days back. Also ran a power cable to the starter and wired up the alternator. Had to snap some shots on the lift. Quickly buttoned up the rear end, I didn't spend an insane amount of time on this because... It's getting some board foot to match the dashboard. Also decided to go ahead and not use the switch box that came with my kit. Sourced a bunch of momentary switches and banged out this thing. It was about this time I realized I had made a mistake, and that the painless switchbox I had bought wasn't going to fly. So then this happened... Kind of cool aero, mid century, fancy pants looking, but I'm proud of it. Still need to cut a couple of holes for the fill neck, sand the dowel joints between two boards. My homie did the dowel joints for me, but we couldn't fit the whole thing through the planer. Besides that it's just some stain. Going to try and knock out the rear side panels and the rear door panels again tomorrow. I made some already but I used the wrong material. Ordered a tach and fue guage, map and iat sensors, and dropped my slip yoke off with a length measurement. Steady checking things off.

    Got most of the engine wired up, figured out a spot to pass through the firewall, away from the exhaust. It's tight under there with the ecu and all of both harnesses but it's taking shape. I got a box of power braid and a pressure switch for the brakes. The starter I've been hauling around with me forever ended up being for a ka. I have no idea where it came from or where the starter for the sr ended up, so I ordered a new one. Also ordered battery cables and a set of bell housing bolts because apparently I lost a couple of those and the starter hardware. Used my old datsun steering column and whipped up this shifter. Ordered a walnut 240z shift knob to match the dash and steering wheel. I'm a big fan of a long shifter, might toss a short throw under it. My dude at the Subaru shop next door snagged this off of a customer car, he had it on the shelf and just gave it to me when I asked about it. Took my fuel rail back off and had the hole for the Nismo fpr welded up, and plugged the hole for the guage. So this is how the feed line is gonna sit, ended up being way more room than I thought and it looks rad. Straight out the back to the reg, and then run everything under the car to the rear. And then there's this...
