Default Sometimes you just have to know when to start over...

Well here is my build thread for my new car. The Jap ratrod has been sent to scrap and should be fridges in no time at all. The goal for this car is to look stockish (other than a Vmount hood), quiet, and very fast.

To build any worth while car, you have to start with a good body, and I found just that on KIJIJI, he was asking $3500 to start, but after some very good negotiating with a nice example of a FC present; Buggy and I drove this thing away for $1200. It's a stock 1986 GXL, with only 117855KM's on it, it was in a minor fender bender at some point in it's life because the bumper, and driver side fender were replaced, now it just has a minor fitment issue with the bumper, I'm sure that can be fixed relatively easy by Classicauto when it get sent there sometime next year.

Here is what the car currently looks like:




Minor misalignment from fender bender:

No rust in the quarters:



Looks like someone pried the lock:

Sunroof with minor rust like every FC:

I guess it got stuck or pushed a lot, nice palm dents:

Clean interior:


Yay!!!:

Engine Bay:


Now for the drivetrain, the stock N/A drive line is getting swapped out for TII setup, (Buggy might part it out but you would have to ask him because he is the owner of the N/A stuff) it's going to be powered by a 13B RE with a Haltech E6X, and some sort of Garrett turbo. I am hoping for 375-400 wheel horsepower at 12-15psi.

Here pics of the Engine:





I will update this as work progresses.

Nice find Kevin!

Go with a Motec, you won't regret it.

Is that the same RE that you've had for years? What kind of porting are you planning?

Hey Brian,

I wish I could go Motec, but I already have the Haltech, maybe someday when I need to upgrade!!

Yup, very same engine I paid $300 for years ago, not planning on porting at all, the turbo has a smallish hot side so I don't need it, and I like the idea of longevity. I never port my engines, I'll just run more boost to make more power.

Nice car... yet another RE swapped FC in the works

No porting on stock RE exhaust?? I'd look into that one a bit more Even just opening the ports earlier would be a big advantage for that turbo (going on looks, not sure of the specs)...

Wanna double your money? I'll give you $600 for it. I need an RE for my FD

You need to DL the Motec V3 software........ it's fricken rediculous. I've been using it for almost a year now and I still can't remember where everything is

It's so nice though. I love it. I'll never use anything else.

At the very least I know Kevin already swapped the sleeves, I would agree though Bill, I like the exhaust porting on mine. All I did was open the port earlier, and smoot out the transitions. That and my little recirc plug. I swear that thing helps alot with AIT's.

Sigh.......... I've got this LS1 conversion that I need to finish so when the weather breaks in April I can hit the FD hard.

What's your anticipated completion date Kevin? You should get your canadian ass in gear and get it finished for DGRRX and caravan down with Joe

The Sleeves have been swapped, the Turbo isn't as big as it looks really, the comp wheel is only 58mm on the exducer, and the turbine is about 71mm. Comp A/R is 50, and Turbine is 70. So It's going to have instant spool as is. It made 374whp on a TII with a Massive exhaust leak at the manifold to housing gasket.

Someday I will go with a Motec, but I just bought a house, and I'm likely going to have to propose at some point so that will be one of the things i do later. No I am keeping this RE I bought it after I Built my last engine and wish I swapped it in.

What is this recirc plug?

I want to get it running for Deals gap, and tear it down next winter and let Joe get naughty with it. But we will see... I really need a Vmount hood, my piping should be no longer than 18".

$1,000 ready for color. I need your old AL hood though. I built that from my stocker. It'd be better if you have your car done and at my shop so that I can duct it directly to your intercooler. Otherwise I'm guessing on the location and height of the intercooler.

Ahhh well it's easier to build my own IC and ducting off a hood I buy but yours is Sexy.

I'm likely going to go with a Shine hood, and go from there I have a nice core that's 12x12x3.
