I know, I know; waiting for it to warm up a tad and also I need to order some hood pins.

Looking into AeroCatch, but man do I not want to mess with all that... Plus the latches taking away that clean look.

But, we all know what can and has happened... I just do not trust that steel bar set in fiberglass. Plus it is such a B***H to get it to latch.

Anyways, here is the bumper I FINALLY pulled the trigger on. Everyone has the KZ, wanted to be somewhat different. Have to wait 2 weeks for it to get molded and what not. Poly of course.

Should go well with the K2 sides I have already and let that intercooler breath.

Well, not today but Friday I pulled the exhaust off to weld in a new bung for the Innovate wideband. I'll give it the benefit of the doubt and bought a new wbo2 sensor since my last one was installed with a short o2 bung (innovate's is 1" tall) and the sensor was mounted at just a hair over 3 o'clock, allowing condensation to collect on it. I installed the new 1" tall bung at 1 o'clock on the pipe and it barely protrudes from the inside. Should be much better.

Also discovered a MAJOR restriction in my exhaust, even more than I thought. The flange I built the rear section from had a slightly smaller than 2.25" ID, into a smashed flat on one side 2.25" diameter 16" long section that I did know about. Never realized the flange was that small ID though. So it was 2.5" midpipe..jammed thru small flange, into 2.25" smashed pipe, back into 2.5" to the end. Good for lowend torque but killing power and revs with that backpressure.

So I rebuilt it.. now is smooth 2.5" all the way from the mid pipe to the end, and the wideband now mounted and working well.



Went out tonight and made several datalog pulls for UpRev and Seymore4 to finish my etune with. This car is about to get sooo much better. No more stinky rich fumes, better mpg, and Mo Powah coming soon.

Stay Tuned


Getting jiggy

Put the hood on today. Gaps are just the hood being more narrow than the oem.

Need to mess with it more as it wont latch. Tried all the tips and tricks to no avail.

Im not sure how I feel about it honestly... What say you?

Would highly recommend you get rid of that grill and go ionic or similar (emblemless OE style). That grille and hood don't go well together iMO.

Appreciate it. Im hoping it grows on me honeslty. Lol!

I just want to vent some heat out.

Tires are ordered, so my new rims be on shortly. Volk knockoffs, but they look alright.

After that, Ill be installing the Cosworth manifold w/ NWPs 75mm TB, some PPE longtubes I had built, those BDE poly motor mounts, Stillen Y-pipe and Z1s 3 single exhaust.

Then off for a re-tune. Im interested and seeing how that Cosworth likes boost...

Niiice. Where did you learn to paint? Can tell this is attempting to be done right with everything removed. Wish I brought my car in ready to paint instead of letting the shop do all the prep work. And I say attempting because it looks like you're painting outdoors. Love the color though!

I learned through my uncle and then we had a shop for a few years
It is outdoors there's some lint but it doesn't kill me
I'll have to pay for storage to leave it unassambled for days and get it towed back to assemble blah blah blah

After I do the jams I'm going to assemble and then take it to the spray booth and paint it


And yeah prep is everything

I kind of want to remove the small windows to get in there better but I'm just going to rope it

Found a loose spark plug. Caused so many issues. Went head and checked all 6 and the coil packs just to be on the safe side. Alls good now purring like a proper G.
Next up: re-do the brakes with fresh rebuilt calipers and slotted rotors.
If I have the $$ I’ll likely finish out the suspension with front adjustable upper control arms Polly bush. And get adjustable control arms with Polly bushings for the rear.
Then plenum spacer and I’ll hold tight for a while.

Thinking about taking the hood off and hanging it back up in the garage.

Hate the fender gap on either side and how hard it is to latch. Feels like I am going to break it. Again.

Once it is latched, its pulled down too far in which the front dips down below the fender line.

I even elongated the latch bolt holes to to raise the latch up significantly just to get it to click.

Ill try hood pins. See if i can get it to line up. Fount a set I like made by RingBrothers.

Oh well I guess... Stock hoods center line will match the new bumpers center line at least.
