Hello again. This thread will be the official chronicle of my endeavor to get my car to where I want it to be. A few of the members here remember my last NA-T attempt...and it is regrettable how I gave up on that, HOWEVER, I was young dumb and all "go fast go fast" minded. This time I am taking my sweet time and doing it the right way and the way I want, however...I accept input. Obviously I do not know everything which is why I am starting this thread. Help/opinions on questions. Lots of knowledge on here and I intend to squeeze out as much of it as I can.Anyhow I am older now, a bit wiser, more patient and more experienced with cars since I was able to work as a mechanic for a while where I got a lot of formerly stated, experience.
So...this is, like titled, a slow build thread and I mean slow. I basically am picking up parts here and there getting good prices on quality stuff when I can. This will not be a pic heavy thread yet since I'm only gathering parts. However, I want to have a place to keep track of stuff and questions and answers.
Parts I have so far:
1997 GTE 6spd ECU
USDM TT MAF
USDM TT MAP
VVT-i COP with wires
RC 550cc injectors
Walbro 255 fuel pump (Going to replace with Denso TT sometime)
AEM UEGO kit for AFR's
HKS SSQ blow off valve (earlier model with adjustability)
Intercooler (forgot brand but it's from last time)
TiAL 40mm Sport wastegate
Precision 61mm 6376 turbo
XS-POWER exhaust manifold
Oil filter sandwich adapter plate
Parts I plan to get with in the next 6-12 months haha long time I know
Intercooler piping/pipe with bov flange and o-snap ring
At the moment thats all that comes to mind. Basically it's a budget build that will work well. Thanks for watching. I'll update whenever I need to or get a new part. I'll post pictures too sometime. Oh and if anyone wants to donate parts...I'll gladly give your unwanted things a home. Jk..but seriously.
Trust me...I'm taking my sweet time on this one so expect this thread to disappear and reappear randomly. Take care.
