Took the car off the road last december and hope to have it all back together this december.Went through 5 blocks to find a good one to rebuild which is what has taken me so long and the 3 month wait while the machine shop did my head and block enjoy.
the ride.

the donar.

the goodies.




The cleaning and painting going all stealth black after cleaning and sandblasting everything so the primer and paint would stick.

Re: my vr6 turbo buildup (PAULITO)

The maf for dizzy car does not unbolt like obd1 or obd2 coilpack cars so you have to make your own 4" maf housing by taking apart the dizzy maf and epoxying it into a piece of 4" pipe centering it the best you can.it also has to be longer than the maf housing you use for the coilpack car.I have not made mine yet as I want to make it as long as I can for good laminal air flow across the maf.Guys have tried to make them short but they do not read accurate.The bottom end is all stock except all apr hardware throught.

Everybody talk nice to the mods so they won't move this...its close enough to stay IMO, and fun to look at.
