stock frame turbo 504/385
hailey stock wheels bolt ons 2 by nate smith, on Flickr

while i was on full bolt ons my stock clutch went so i went crazy and did a exedy triple disc and then just my luck evene with all the precautions in the tob popped out so i bought the conversion kit from ams to convert from pull to push, i did not have time to do it since it was my only car at the time someone did it for me and decided to flip the discs on me and the clutch pedal was weird and me not knowing no better took it to the track and well cause the clutch was not working right it did a clutch drop it ripped the rear end in half. i got that fixed had a whine replaced tcase was not it. found out it was the transmission so replaced that. no she is running right no whine.

so after she was fixed and running well, i bought a DD and did a custom stock frame turbo, that was fun with full bolt ons she made 505 on e85
had a oil line break on the stock frame and then i found a ets t3 kit with a 5858 so i got that and installed it i made 550 on e85. well i had a motor noise so i parked it until i could build the car how i wanted.


Now the fun starts, motor comes out and getting fully built

got her all done. was time for break in


20 miles into break in and she stopped idling
found out something was wrong with the exhaust mivec so we deleted it with a magnus ehaust mivec delete kit.
so while i was waiting to be able to get to her i found a ets t4 6870 kit for sale with a ets 5 inch inter cooler so i picked that up installed it while car still did not idle she had a another new turbo kit.

also a innovate flex fuel gauge

got the trunk painted
redid the fuel system some not much got a few more things to do adding a carbon fiber cover to the back seat to cover all the foam up.
adding in a valve on the return so i can drain the fuel system with a flip of a switch.
added a roll cage its just a bolt in, got the seat cut out to go around it.
Also adding a new battery tray will update pictures when its done.
Changed oil coolers out to black ones and deleted the center divider it rattled its butt off when idling.

Results are huge thank you to Chris Carbee with Slow poke tuning
and All aspects motorsport for doing all the tuning advice and work.
An huge thank you to Professional wheel repair for all the paint work and shop time for hailey
An Seth from Abacus Racing in norfolk Va did a amazing job on the motor.

We went to install the 5 bar map sensor but it is not ready for a 2011 yet so we had to stick with the 4 bar map sensor.


we are going to be changing a few things on her and 5 bar for next go around 40 psi is where she is at now and still has some timming left in her.

well motor is still not done builder is taking his time blahhhhh but in the mean while i been doing a few other things
got a cage working on fitting that and fittings seat to go around cage and look nice redoing fuel system a few things on it one is siphon i am making it come off the pump side so its siphons all the time now. The rest is just making it look better, here is a pic how it should be now and also put a switch in the system so i can turn pumps on and drain fuel out without having the car running and that is why i put siphon on the pump side now
more pictures will be uploaded as i get things right.
