    It's been A LONG TIME since I've updated here. Since my last post in this thread I have...

    -pulled the ORC twin plate, sold it, and replaced it with a bully stage 4 which is supposedly good for ~600 ft/lb but has close to stock engagement. I like it.
    -blown up another stock 7.5" LSD, replaced it with a detroit truetrac and Weir solid pinion spacer kit'
    -adapted X7 hubs for Nissan 300ZX front brakes, redrilled and slotted rotors and made some custom brackets

    -had the shims from the Weir kit slide out the side and get chewed up in my brand new bearings, causing my diff tolerances to go to **** and make a lot of noise
    -bought another $250 bucks worth of diff bearings, re-did the setup and machined myself a one-piece pinion spacer
    -bought some ****ty cheap 17s for $400 with tires
    -bought, modified and installed coilovers (cheaped out and bought my buddy's used MK2 supra AGX/ground control fronts and a pair of megan s13 rears) currently running 8k front 7k rear springs. They ride surprisingly well.
    -bought and built a megasquirt 3X with all the bells and whistles : boost control, 4 bar map sensor, etc etc.
    -rebuilt my Holset HX35 with super-cheap Chinese parts from BAE turbo (not surprisingly it spools faster with tips on the turbine wheel fins)
    -changed my starter (exciting ****)
    -went from 14psi WG spring to 11psi spring because I was getting tired of hitting boost cut
    -somehow managed to kill my 1JZ

    2JZGE bottom end bought because my spare 1JZ looked like **** after sitting for 4 years after a life of neglect (I built the janky ramp so I could unload it by myself)

    Old 1J piston top. Cyl #2 was the worst (this one), the rest weren't nearly as bad.

    I wanted a turbo blanket, but I'm a cheap bastard, so I bought a stainless steel pot at a thrift store for 5 dollars and wrapped it with a few layers of stick on heat barrier ****. Voila ghetto heat shield. Also wrapped my manifold. I ran out half way through, but my buddy Bill came through and brought me another half-roll of header wrap.

    I put in a battery cable from an E30 3 series, all nicely tucked along the door sill with the stock body harness, then built a battery tray for the trunk. Then I tore my dash apart and went from this.

    I've gotta take a few more pics once I finish putting the interior back in. It's just about ready to tune and then BURNOUTS. Then maybe another blown diff...
