Ok guys little update haven't updated in a while
So the car is obv still stored away. I haven't had a chance to get in and get the measurements for the front spilter and rear diffuser so hoping ill get that this weekend and get those made up
Was talking to Freedom Shop about the build. So we decided on;
Manley Pistons and rings
Manley Turbo Tuff Rods
King Bearings
and for the heads
ARP head bolts
Brian Crower Stage 2 cams
BC valves
BC valve springs and retainers
BC valve guides and stoppers
Going to machine and port the heads as well for some more flow
So while the engine is getting built me and a buddy will try and tackle the wrap again. Hopefully this time will go better then last haha

God its been a while and seems so slow going :\ but I should be placing the order next week for the head parts.

Cooking something up with Fisik Aero tat should make the car stand out some people might not like the result hah but that's ok.

Went to go check on my car last week and snapped the key off in the lock lol just my luck. But we are hoping to have the car out in the next couple weeks. We will start wrapping the car and possibly pull the engine then as well.

Also have to get in contact with Misihimoto and get brackets for the oil cooler which im also debating selling it.

But that's a little update for now

Well sucks to say that the plan has changed a bit the full long block build started getting a bit to high in price for me right now so the new plan is to order the parts for the short block.
Going to take apart the block and see what the oil problem is. We are thinking its the valve stems so going to replace the stems with new ones and relap the valves to make sure a good seal is there.
Going to take a look at the sleeves and see what kind of shape they are in and of machining is necessary then I will do that. But if not I will prob just hone the sleeves and drop in a set of pistons.
New spoiler is at the CNC shop and hopefully getting started today or tomorrow. Then its off to powercoat.
Sold my old White shift knob and my STi spoiler. So I was looking around for ideas on how to fill the holes in the trunk but it looks like my best option is to get a new trunk and paint it.
