    Re-ran the cable to the front and took it for a rip around the block yesterday.

    The manual brakes work well. I need to do a better ghetto alignment, and i need to build an exhaust this week so i can put plates on it and rack up some Ks before beating it on the track.

    I like that last part dude. It will be coming down to Victoria shortly?

    I'm on my phone and don't want to check back. Did you get a 510 smaller bore master? And still on te72 brakes?

    Ae86 brakes front, MK1 supra discs rear. I may need to get a different proportioning valve. Dunno if the rears are doing anything.

    Ordered up a muffler and park brake cables today.

    Does need more video. That will come some day. Also needs a new plastic water neck. Mine is cracked and crappy and leaking.

    Found a rare unmuffled intake tube


    Nah just rupped the muffler off and JB' a piece of the plastic from it over the port.

    Half the exhaust battle done. Well more like 3/4 with the mani mods. Twin 2.5s into single 2.5. Super overkill dumps but whatever.

    Nice to meet you at saratoga a while back. Always nice to see your tidy work... hope to see it in person in Vic soon.

    Thanks for the motivation guys. Exhaust is done. Sounds good. A little louder than I'd like, but there is room i could throw a cherry bomb in if i want. The loudest most annoying thing is the fuel pump though. You can really hear it wail now.

    I'd expect it to weigh 2250 or so with a full tank?

    Gonna insure it tomorrow i think and go bag on it hard.

    if the noise of the fuel pump starts to get to you, just ream the holes in your mounting plate and use grommets as isolators.. super tidy and made a pretty noisy aeromotive nearly silent.

    Done! backup lights and all. Only thinkg it needs actually is a air filter. the one i have is waaaaay to big to fit, length wise.

    I'm sure when the neighbours see it in the driveway they wonder how all those days and nights of cutting, grinding, hammering, welding and wrenching only resulted in a lower car with twice as many headlights. **** does it sound sweet though.

    I said previously i thought it was louder than i wanted, but driving on the street it sounds fantastic. Amazeballs.




    The tight quarters where it all happened.
