    I should have it on a dyno very soon.

    Meanwhile, I finally put on the Alpina 162 valance

      valance looks great man! on your gta wheels, did it cost you much to machine out the hub bore? I've been looking for some cheap 16x8+0's.

        My man, all I did was stick a 40 grit flap wheel on the end of a DeWalt drill and have at her.
        It self-centers as it rotates and you're only taking off less than a mm.

        No balancing issues.

        More Alpina stuff - may need sideskirts.






        Can't wait to put the GTAs back on this week.

        Also, some highly articulated suspension shots from Sunday (pre-Alpina)

          Is there more room behind that valance than the stock 'is' one?

            I can fit the Alpina valance with the iS valance still attached behind it. This hangs about 2" lower.
            An unforgiving bastard to fit through, as there is zero flex to the Alpina items.

              Good to know. At some point in the future I will be seeking more room behind the valance, since my massive intercooler makes it impossible to run a condenser fan with the stock, cut up, valance. I love the look of the Alpina valances and would not be opposed to trimming a reproduction and putting it on my car.

                  Nice, that is a lot of power. Power to weight ratio has to be on par with a C6 Z06, assuming the car weighs close to 3,000lbs. How's the traction?

                    Spins 4th no problem.
                    I'll be upgrading wheels this winter to try and fit 245s.

                      That's a great power to weight! I'm just a bolt on LS1 car but I've got 245 square A052's on my HPDE car and they hook up great for the track. I'm Probably 150hp and 50ftlbs less but you should still have reasonable traction on a 245

                        Can you post of photo of the 245 square setup? 16s or 17s?
                        My fronts are a challenge as my front track width is about 15mm wider per side.

                          16x8 +20 square here, 24.8" tall tire, so any 17 in a similar offset will work as well. This is completely stock suspension minus M3 offset FCAB's. Coilovers and camber plates would get a +25 or similar under the fenders better. I tracked it all night saturday night like this with minor rubbing, 99% of it due to the stock springs being so soft the tires were in the fender liners all night.

                            Here is a photo dump of progress:

                            2.93 LSD Fitted




                            Burned off all available tires before the snow hit




                            Tucked it in beside the Pajero Evo for the winter


                            Finally found an immaculate carpet to replace the terrible one that's in it




                            Bought a terrible winter car while the Evo is being kept safe


                            Converted the front core support to a removable setup










                            Now the engine and trans can come out in about 40mins from start to finish




                            Replaced the decimated throw out bearing


                            Soundproofed/Heat shielded the tunnel and bay






                            Deleted any unnecessary wiring now that the ABS & Airbag are gone








                            Did the timing belt, water pump, tensioner and a few other things to the 1JZ




                            Chopped out any unnecessary bracketry in the bay




                            Started looking at clocking my BC top plates to gain more caster without changing the wheel position


                            I'm going to re-drill the stud locations to rotate the plate 30degrees, which will increase caster about 20mm and keep the strut towers untouched.

                            Made a rather large purchase - BBS RSs

                            16x8 et11 Front
                            16x8.5 et5 Rear

                            Perfect for my suspension setup!

                                More photo dumpage

                                Launch control mawfakers....





                                Micro momentary switch




                                All wired up with a quick disconnect in case I need to pull the trans




                                I made a neoprene sleeve to keep the wiring semi-clean at least


                                I could have easily worked it off of the clutch switch, but this is just so much more of a cool gimmick.

                                My new carpet is in, which meant sacrilegiously cutting it up to fit the modified tunnel.


                                Redid all of the crusty in-bay loom


                                Sharpie'd by cluster and polished the screen to a near new finish




                                The interior is now ready for some serious ripping this summer


                                Fitted the ultra-rare SedanKing Heckblende


                                I'm finishing up a neat license plate holder, as this one was just for mockup.

                                Next up is a deep clean, then she's back on the road this weekend!
