motorbreath Posted January 31, 2021 Share Posted January 31, 2021 (edited) Prior to me buying it in October 2020, this was a one-owner daily-driven completely stock car with all service records provided. It is not a rust-bucket, but it has been through a decade of Canadian winters, so before I build I restore... Note, I have lots of tools but little mechanical skill, ergo "The Hard Way." Everything listed was repaired or installed by me, unless otherwise indicated. Part I - The Restoration - Oil pan (previous owner prior to sale) - Serpentine belt, timing belt, tensioner, and pulleys - Spark plugs and coil packs - Turbo coolant lines and outlet studs/bolts - Nameless BPV - Invidia Q300 Catback Exhaust - Engine cradle (mechanic, $$$) - Front calipers, front and rear brake lines, pads, and rotors (mechanic) - Front control arms and ball joints (mechanic) - Front/rear coil springs, dampers, and mounts - rear lower links (camber adjustable) - 1" "Saggy Butt" rear lift (?!?!) - Windshield (previous owner prior to sale) - Minor body repair and full paint job (body shop, $$$) - Drawtite hitch with 2" receiver - Primitive Racing skid plate - Removal of engine shroud (?!?!) - Drivers seat leather repair (interior specialist) - Kenwood DMX9707s with iDatalink (steering wheel controls, OBD2 gauges) Part II - The Build - New OEM exhaust manifold - Used OEM turbo and wastegate actuator (with lots of new bits and pieces!) - Tactrix 3-port boost control solenoid Grimmspeed 3-port BCS - Invidia catted downpipe/j-pipe/whatever-you-call-it - ACT HD Performance Street Clutch Kit, SB11-HDSS - Clutch damper delete - ShinjiTuned Opensource e-tune (see 3rd gear WOT boost plot for versions 2-5 of the tune!) Need to do: - Engine mounts, transmission mount, and pitch stop - Low/high tone horns - a sh*t-ton superficial rust removal, undercoating, and rust-proofing Edited April 3 by motorbreath Updating to reflect my failure with the twin scroll kit!
