Some of these pics are old, need to get some interior pics someday.

What I was working on last winter.

Heres the basic story of the sr.

Picked up the engine for 1775 with sidemount intercooler at JDMENGINEZONE, who I highly recommend. :)

Took apart the engine, and stripped the engine down to the block/head. Painted it with cast coat aluminum to make it freeesh.

Completely cleaned out the intake system, with new gaskets all around. All the coolant hoses were also changed with new ones, as well as the clamps. I hate those ****ty oem clamps. >_<

Resurfaced flywheel, tranny went through the same process as the engine.

Bay was painted gloss black.

Harness Before^^ And after vv

Converted it to left hand drive, lengthened certain wires so that they could be tucked under the intake manifold. Had to use a ****load of my KA harness, because my SR harness was missing a huge chunk. Cut out all the emissions stuff, and accessories. Re-loomed the whole thing with techflex. After all that, I was hyped when it didnt catch fire after hooking up the battery. :rock:

Finished up the interior, got a Boost, and oil pressure guage, as well as a boost controller.

Scramble button.

Pretty much all done.

Rolled like a boss for the first few days.

Heres how she roars. BOV can barely be herd because of the high pitch.
