Your like a mix of MacGyver and Dexter (from Dexter’s Laboratory).... kind of crazy... definitely think outside the box... resourceful... impressive. Do you get your weld beads using bobby pins from female "acquaintances" hair by chance?

Allot of people have cool imaginative ideas... only a handful of individuals ever make them a reality. Awesome build man.

Yes, I'm an engineer for a living. This car stuff is just on the side for fun lol.

Trying to finish 3 cars this week. Just picked up a new project yesterday. IS300 with a blown motor. Tore it down, and built a GTE internals shortblock and getting it ready to drop in and fire back up tomorrow.





Some pix of the engine building. Pulled and built 2 engine in one day, talk about back breaking work. One block is getting Wiseco forged pistons and forged rods. The other engine going in the IS300 is just simply GTE pistons and rods. Third engine going to be built today is going to have Wiseco pistons and Eagle rods.
