so i found a ground that wasn't properly grounded and i think my hesitation is gone. Im just over 700 miles now on my rebuild and ive already start taking it up to redline!
I fell in love all over again today! click the link below for a short sound clip.

my tires are getting mounted and balanced now so i should have some pics up tomorrow. i think im gonna need some 20mm overs for the front. i think they look alright and if the get messed up, oh well.

so they dont make anything like that for power steering racks? coz i have a de powered rack that i just spaced with washers but i would love to get some spacers like that for! and if you want to get some real angle out of that thing I would get some abercrombie steering knuckles and extended ball joints.

The mazdatrix kit only fits power racks. i had to get this so i could run it on my manual rack.

i picked up an extra set of knuckles, i was thinking about sending them to pbm but thats on the back burner now! I wish it would stop raining on my days off so i could get more work done!

Need some advice, my trans is out, i want to replace my front main seal! How should i remove the front pully, im just worried about the spacer moving and crushing the bearing?

Anyway i feel like i got alot done today. Wiring is out except the emissions harness, trans is out, new clutch installed. well damn thats not really alot but i didnt want to take the UIM off yet. Next on the list is wire up the e6k!









I also have a bunch of parts for sale/trade like n374 ecu, arp extended studs, racing beat fcd, stock s5 turbo clutch/PP, exedy oem spec clutch/PP, RB rear lowering springs and bunch of other stuff. ill put a link to my sale thread on here once it is approved!

I love it just slowly leting it become an all out race car! you know its easier to just rewire the whole car in my opinion. I just wanted to strip depin and tuck all my wireing but i decided its just easier to start from scretch and wire it all my self. look up a thread called (aluminum dash getting rid of stock wireing). theres some good stuff in there. and seriously when I look at your car I see my black fc in the future your doing everything I want to do to my black fc after I get my white fc done!
