    COTM ~Nov 13~ Myster-E

    I originally bought this car in October of 2010 to replace the M30 sedan I had just sold. (Ended up buying that back!) The first thing I did with the car is swap to Euro bumpers and H&R Sports with Bilstein HD. Next was a full i top end swap on to the original bottom end. In September of 2011 I decided to sell the current 2.7i engine and build a 2.8L M20. I ran with that engine for just over a year and once again decided to sell it off. The next build was the Super Eta based 2.7 that's currently in the car. As you can see by the engine specs it's been set up for boost. During the time the car was down for the latest M20 build I did the complete 5 lug conversion.

    Plans for 2014 include supercharging the M20 with a Vortech blower and get it back on Megasquirt. I also have a M-Tech 1 kit I am currently hoarding and look forward to getting that on the car as soon as possible! Maybe then the car will be done... Nah!

                This is one of my favorite early models! Is there any chance of some hi-res versions of any of these shots?

                      Would love to hear an exhaust clip of this ride!

                      Awesome work. Have something similar in the works for my early model.

                          Really Nice

                          Saw this a few weeks ago in Van Nuys and it looked really great.

                          Once this car gets kitted, it will be over the top.

                          Congrats.

                          Was there an October 2013 COTM or did I just miss it?

                            Absolutely gorgeous. The engine bay looks immaculate. I love the startecs... really nicely put together car; I think it'd look perfect on some Alpinas or Hartge splits to really set it off even more
