Engine is almost ready. just waiting on a few parts and she should be ready to start.





built a bracket to mount the a/c fan since i removed the condensor and will be using it as a blower for the rad



Also installed the grills and lights. i am leaving the inside left light out for a duct and will be boxing the intake. Also left the inside right light out and made a block off plate.








Headers are coming in thursday and the car is going to Autovation friday for exhaust work.

Thanks guys! Really getting anxious now. the car will most likely not be as exciting as Shawns but you will definitely be welcome to come for rides on track!

Looks awesome!

His plan is to fit the e36 M50 exhaust on - the cat & resonator have been deleted, and he will run it into the stock muffler for now - cheap and simple (albeit heavy)

I have a feeling your car is going to be quite surprising. At AutoX, I'm going to have to work my a$$ off. At the track I'll pull on you in the straights, but your cornering should be about on par with me.

^Yea we'll see how they match up. unfortunately we won't be finding that out the 24th as i just got word today that my coilovers will most likely not be in before the weekend Konis are backorderd so all GC kits are delayed. was really hoping to have her out the 24th. huge bummer
