after that, upgrade the tranny with a higher stall? then what? some sway bars, better struts, RXB?

i dont have much mods yet, just waiting on a few things. i think im just goin to do intake/exhaust/boost controller, then focus on suspension. i might also rebuild a shortblock, to swap in later on. i also want to focus on my stereo install, as that will take at least a month working on it whenever possible.

yeah, im still looking into the tranny build up.. im not totally sure im going to get done, prolly go with a 3000+rpm stall, higher line pressure and maybe even a complete rebuild

i'll figure that out if my current tranny blows on me

i do however want to get black carpet and paint my interior, also looking into strut bars and steel braided brake lines. and for cheap stuff, heat sheild and CAI

and hells no i wouldnt part with my strut bar, that thing made a pretty big difference in cornering, its also good to help the tires from wearing out prematurely. I would however suggest getting one for yourself, not sure is cusco is the best brand, but there isnt too many choices.

thats cool that you did the swap to turbo though man, im not sure if you could call it a mod as much as a replacement... but its better than rolling a 3500+lb car around with 200hp... heh

i done it once in my life for some bike parts and works great and easy to do now what is it call thou ah call lordco they will know the name caues they can get the stuff in stock


as for heat ceramick have no clue where you can get that done but i know you can buy the mess form lordco and maybe crappy tire


but just give couple calls around you will find out what you are looking for


oh just remmber the name of the powder coatins thing name it is made buy easton ro some thign liek that

for ceramic coating, i phoned around awhile back, noone knew where to get it done in victoria. theres a shop in vancouver that does JetHot coating, it comes out looking like chrome.

hmmmm wallet full of shit... HERE IT IS! ok, dont have the shop name, but its in Delta. 604 - 946 - 7761, i was told to talk to Ed about JetHot coating. i seem to remember that 2.5" intercooler piping was about ... just called them, $20-25 per foot. ill get my IC hardpipes either JetHot coated, or powdercoated. powdercoating is cheap, and there are thousands of colors to choose from.

as for polishing, ill agree with nashman, call lordco. a freind of mine did some parts this way, turned out very nice. if you dont want to do it yourself, look in the Yellow Pages under Metal Plating/Polishing. there is a place in sidney that offers very reasonable prices.

naw i can do it myself, but what the hell do i need? i dont have a polishing wheel or anything... ???? drill with polishing type bit ?

i want to polish my turbo when it gets here

that jet hot looks cool for doing exhaust manifold or something, since they do both the inside and out of it. but i cant imagine its cheap

i just solved my polishing problem i believe, i'll be house sitting my grandparents place up island pretty soon, and hes got all sorts of tools i can use to polish. there isnt a bench polisher, but hes got drills and a sweet ass dremel tool. im sure i can make some good use out of that.

which brings me to another point... i drove up to parksville today for a bit, then drove back..... had absolutely no problems with the car, even tho i was pushing a steady 120k+ the entire way there and back. temp gauge never went above average running level even in todays heat....

all in all a good cruise, i wouldnt want to do it in any other car

ive been working on getting some steal braided brake lines myself for the past week or so....

powerslot were something like 240 bux?? christ i have no idea.

im happy with my brembo cross drilled/slotted for now, but im going to powerslots when they need to be replaced.

ohh, i painted some stuff under my hood today, basically just the battery tie down and the other plastic cover thing on the opposite side. ive got a ton of blue stuff happening, i just need to polish it all up and it'll look dope!

getting new o2 sensor soon too... maybe that'll help my car from idling like shite!

let us know about that Rx meet tho, NashMan. Toby you up for going? i might just stop by or something..
