Good looking cars you've got there. Now how about some posts about that Jeep?

this Spring I swapped from ms2 v3 on stock ignition to Microsquirt V3 running ls7 coils in wasted spark. Built a whole new engine harness, relay/fuse panel etc.

Re-did the fuel system to accomodate the new intake manifold/fuel rail setup. Did all -6 stuff on the pressure side. Also I do not pass up opportunities to show off the under side of the car...

The unnecessarily fancy air filter

I put a set of Recaro SRD's in it. Interior is pretty done now (not in this pic). Even got a shift boot on it finally, just need to wire up the aux gauges and the inside is done for me.

nice clean holes for me to stick my boost into

the bonerific head. hnggggh

notha bay shot

I bought a slow blue Swedish car to drive back and forth to work in the rain and snow.

Remembered this place existed. Y'all are too kind. I think I was at 14psi on a rougher tune when we all met up, been running a smoother 20-21 psi since then - significantly faster. About a month ago it started pinging on me in higher gears on long pulls. Haven't figured out why yet, AFR's are 11.5:1 when it's happening, plenty of fuel, all should be well. I'm down to thinking it's winter blend gas messing with me or it's something that will become evident when I pop the head off.

Just about done driving it for the year. No heat right now and when it's 30degrees I get wheel spin even in third on cold tires. I've half a mind to see if I can blow the motor in front of my Dad's place before I park it, but I've never been one to willingly kill good parts. We'll see. 21psi, 7krpm on a clattery 250k mile untouched motor except a cam. Color me impressed.

Winter work is gonna be the built motor I've been blathering on about for a year now. Nice long H-beam rods with light weight Wiseco's, ARP studs, CNC shaped head with monster valves (+4mm on the exhaust!), much bigger cam. Should be a totally different animal, expecting it to rev a lot faster and spool earlier. Then I'm going to decide I'm done street tuning it and just pay someone with a dyno to dial the thing in for me.

Goal is 400+whp which should definitely be reasonable with the setup. All gonna be down to tune.. There are similarly built 8valve setups doing over 500whp on e85 but don't really plan to push it that far to the edge.

Nissens HD rad and e-fan setup to put on
All new bumpers and bumper trim that actually fits properly
NOS beltline trim to put on
Aux gauges to wire up
Need to break the wheels apart, have the centers re-coated, polish the lips and put brand new hardware in them
New tires
blah blah.. plenty to do. I always get way more done during the winter than I do when it's actually nice out. I want to paint the car eventually, same color just knock the old paint off and get a new coat on. Probably wait another year for that though.

More recent piccies

Buying a house has proved to be an excellent way to neglect car projects by the way. Oh and also you guys must have gotten under my skin because this is the next project:

I have a 2014 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0T RSpec. The RSpec comes with RSpec seats, an LSD, Brembos, larger front and rear sway bars, lowered suspension and 19" wheels. Since I am still not bored with the power I have been slowly changing the appearance first before focusing on power/suspension mods.

So far all I have done is 35% tint all the way around and 6" down on the windshield, de-badged, KDM badges and de-chromed the grille. I just bought some Continental DWS tires as well since Sears was having a sale and I figured summer tires were not the best for a RWD winter car.
