My old man in the background, we built this together, all started with me having a carina shell and going back to uni so I gave it to him, he decided to put the turbo v8 in it and the rest is history.

I bought some wheels for this to do Burnouts on.

 

Pretty stoked!

Nearly a year, But we still work on this thing!

20451729_10155321743405837_5201442379170

Piecing the interior back together AGAIN.

I dont fit in the NZKW seats properly with a helmet on so I have this reclinable bride on super low rails for me to use.

New Powersteering system in the boot, this will be boxed up but we are just getting it running at the moment.

20294370_10155321745970837_3984547707500

 

Lines under the car and R151 on the left side with new Gearbox mount.

 

20248033_10155321748150837_1125880506743

 

Powersteering rack fitted vs manual rack. The 1uz put a lot of weight over the front and make it very difficult to drive.

 

No automatic alt text available.

No way we were gitting the powersteering pump in there. Alternator has been relocated up 200mm to clear exhaust manifold for turbo.

 

Drove the car last night, first time without a missfire.
She makes 361hp at the wheels, at 2800rpm.
Shes face ripping fast, and super super easy to slide. Tires feel like butter and they are RE002's!

Drifting this weekend in the Rina, cant wait.

I just realised I havent given much of a rundown!

In Sept 2016 I destroyed a gearbox at Hampton Downs, literally turned 3rd gear super smooth.
December 2016 we went to oldschool drags with new gearset in W58, I did 3 runs and it got a whine, my old man did a run and she blew a oil line for the oil relocator
February 2017 we bought a R151 gearbox and in March 2017 fitted it, I was going to do a Timelapse, recorded it all but forgot to do anything with it.
April 2017 I bought the Altezza and started drifting in that (another thread), this went for recert and failed on a bunch of stuff one being steering too heavy - powersteering needed to be fitted.
June 2017 we sourced a rack and got it rebuilt, I found some electric PS pumps as factory manual pump would not fit. Also got Traction brackets, adjustable 4 link, adjustable panhard rod and T3 caster arms
July 2017 We got GSS to come and sort the lines while I mounted up things behind the guy (literally yesterday). made seat rails and fitted Bride, and 380mm Dish steering wheel with quick release, This saturday I am taking the car to Nothn Fancy Drift day at Meremere to to give it a run in and see if we fixed stuff.
