Any big build / upgrade / improvements planned???
« on: February 20, 2015, 10:49:41 AM »
Really just trying to strike up some convo..

I have a couple things planned this  year

1. Purchasing new suspension. Most likely going to the F/F type 2's I've read and heard good things about them. Just like everything though some like them some hate them.
2. BBK upgrade. Not sure my exact plans here. I just know I need something better than what I have. I need to do my research on this but I need to be able to stop after spirited runs.  ;)
3. Ricer bling. (We all have a little Ricer in us) Just doing some basic stuff (i.e. S2 Low-Profile Valve Cover hardware, S2 radiator hoses, S2 Alpha Radiator, Bolt Boys Chassis hardware, S2 Fuel Rail etc..) Again just my ricer stuff that I do like even though others hate!!!!

I have a couple other things I'm hoping to get to before the ISS meet but I'll save those for my build thread.

Let's here what your plans are? All 3 of you that visit this site now.   :-[ :'(

Some of the tax money will go towards the current plans for the car, the dash & interior stuff. It looks like I'll be getting more back than I expected, so I might see about finally getting some coil overs for the drift slut.

Not really from tax money, as I figured things out this year and owed $0 to the state, and am getting back $180 from the feds.

But, I'm building a stroker/big bore engine for the VW bug, going dual carb, big cam, 2054cc. Should put down maybe 140whp if I can put it together correctly. Just waiting on the rotating assembly to get back from being balanced, and the heads to show up then I can start clearancing things and working on assembly.

I just put the M3 up on jack stands to put in a full exhaust from the headers back. Just waiting on the headers to get finished from HPC early this week. Then hopefully I can get a re-tune in before the March 1st AutoX.

Not tag money for me ether.  But I finally sold my old racing hart wheels.  Picking up a set of Kosei's on Tuesday and then dropping them off to be powder coated.

I changed the title since not everyone plans to use Tax money for projects.
