Got it on the rollers over at J&S Performance / Dynopro



Pretty happy with the numbers! Can't wait to try it out.

Epic build man!
Stupid question: at this stage, is it still street legal?

Technically, yes, but not really. In Colorado our plates are good for 2 years, I bought the car, plated it, and then tore in to it basically. Once they expire I won't be able to renew them.

Had a fun test day at the local cart track with some friends, but after hotlapping I was noticing lower then normal oil pressure (still in the OK zone though) and we came to the conclusion It was due to excess heat. I am going to try some 5w40 instead of the 5w30 i've been running, as well as picking up this oil cooler from a friend parting out his LS FC



My tach has always been a little jumpy, but lately all my gauges have been acting up and I wanted to add an oil temp gauge as well, so the obvious solution was a racepak



Hoping to have everything plummed and buttoned up by saturday night, then it's in to the trailer for LSFest!

man that radiator looks so small, maybe that's the problem? but there's certainly no shortage of air coming into that engine bay...

It's pretty average sized for an oil cooler. Bigger then most I see on cars actually.

forgot to update this thread in a little while.

Went out and drove LS Fest in Vegas, was a great time and huge shoutout to Holley for having us drifters out and MDU for running things!


My E46 and my teammate's S14 after LSfest


I believe the ZHP rack turns further then the stock one as I was suddenly having binding issues at lock. Installed the Turner rack stops I've had on the shelf for a year and problem solved.


I also installed a Whiteline front sway bar while I was in there. Next up was our Drift Colorado season opener.


Someone got this awesome shot of me killing some tires.


Picked up some new SLR bits to get some more positive camber


and we also picked up this beauty to bastardize this winter.

Yes MOOARRRRRR! I love the pic of the smoking tires, that is an epic shot man! Make it your sig on here!!

Can't wait to see what's up next for the vert, exposed roll cage I assume, but top down drifting? So sick.

Vert will be getting a laundry list of mods as well, but will be staying more "street car" then the LS car. I've got a new SLR angle kit on order for the LS car, and am about to pull the trigger on some fortune Auto coil overs for it as well. When those all show up the vert is going to get the SLR kit and BC Racing coil overs that are currently on the LS car. I am also going to get a subframe reinforcement kit, and I scored this at the local pull and pay last weekend

going to build a welded diff for it as well.

All that should make it quite the fun little summer car, and then this winter it will be going down for a full tandem legal cage and hopefully a 1jzgte-vvti swap.
