    Non off-road builds

    I’ll start with my fist non-off-road build ever.

    77 vette, nice southern Cali car that was well taken care of until 94, then mostly stored inside. Everything rubber was rotted.

    I rebuilt brakes, suspension, every bushing, engine and transmission seals over winter. Engine had 20k on stock rebuild.


    I added old skool H268 cam, brodix IK 180 heads, headers, tried to keep it retro down to the MT valve covers. Still original block.

    Next is connecting a new sanden 508 ac pump and lines. Next winter I will tackle gears and maybe a 700r4 swap.

      Nice...I like the H268, used to sell the shit out of them when I did automotive/speed parts. Eons ago now....
      My dad has a '76 Vette "retirement project" thats been sitting for years, my brother and I joke about who doesnt get it when that time comes...😂

      I picked up a '64 Chevy II four door a couple of years ago as a summer driver, unmolested, 194 powerglide...I did add disc brakes, but ither than plans for new paint, it's gonna stay stock.

        There was a whole thread on it back on the old site but....new site new post so.

        04 Forester XT, 6MT swap w/PPG gears and Cusco limited slip, R180 swap w/cusco limited slip, Brembo brakes, Driveshaft shop "level 4" (they call 750hp) axles, JDM STI LCA w/whiteline ball joints, ALL bushings replaced with TiC/Subtle/Whiteline, STI lateral control arms, boxed and welded trailing arms. FEAL 441 coilovers (corner balanced), Cusco H brace, Cusco mid brace set, Cusco rear sub frame T braces, Cusco front cross brace, Cusco tower braces F/R, Subtle solutions rear hatch brace(upper and lower), Subtle solutions fender/front brace, Cusco inside B pillar floor brace. DCCD controler system.

        Engine: EJ257, forged CP pistons, 08+ crank, stock cams and heads, ID1300 injectors, Side feed to top feed conversion, FP green turbo, cobb downpipe, grimspeed crosspipe, grimspeed uppipe, S3 AOS, oem STI tmic, all hoses and couplers replaced with silicon. Tuned by GST motorsports/Speed Element for both pump gas and E85 340/400 WHP (pump/e85)

        Body: JDM imported cross sport body kit, 01-02 STI JDM import wheels (BBS), shaved emblems, JDM door latch/handle, JDM import HiD headlights (yes proper factory SG9 projectors), all side/brake/turn lights converted to LED. LED swap fog/driving lights(full swap not just bulbs), JDM power folding mirrors. JDM front L/R fenders (factory skirt turn signal cutouts)

        Interior: 05 seats(power), 03 STI carpet kit, Innovation Dynamics gauge cluster in center pod, upgraded sound system. 04 STI Momo steering wheel, OEM everything else.

        Needs body/paint still, that is next on the list, and I am waiting on a JDM SG9 carbon fiber lip, but they are very very hard to find.

          Nice, I think my parents had a chevy II with a 3 on the tree when I was a little kid, not many running around anymore. I like unmolested old iron! I'm trying to keep the vette stockish, but it's hard when you also want a nice driver. The only thing not period correct is the heads and the sanden 508. I might keep the th350 and just swap to 3.55 gears, the 3.08 gears and tall 1 st in the th350 make it a dog off the line. But drives and stops good, which was my priority. I'm trying to do the vette in stages to keep it from becoming a forever project and enjoy some seat time.

              Body and paint, nice wheels, better tires and that would be one SWEET ride. You have a good looking start, now finish it up man.

                We need Grendal to bring his street jeep build over here.
                Whenever there is doubt, there is no doubt.

ID:	6784 About 5 years ago I picked up 2001 Miata (NB generation).
                    To date I have done following:

                    New timing belt/tensioner, water pump, cam and crank seals, radiator and some new hoses, cam and crank sensors.

                    Garage Star fender braces and door Delrin bushings.

                    Hankook Ventus RS3 tires (205 45 16) - stock rims

                    Shifter and boots were rebuilt with new parts

                    New rotors / pads (still need to change brake fluid to Motul I have sitting on the shelf)

                    Flyin Miata Vmaxx Classic coilovers and Racing Beat 1.25” front swaybar, 949 Racing adjustable sway bar links, Naro Motorsports sway bar brace kit

                    Quality lubes/oil all around

                    Hard top (need to paint as it is faded a lot)

                    Hood louvers

                    Future plans are all new suspension bushings, engine mounts and few other bits. Likely keeping stock drivetrain and no swaps/forced induction (picked up Ninja 650 as a substitute)

                              I thought that's what " Misc" was for? ..... This is chit chat. Y'all don't pay attention. Personally I'd put it there and link here or in your sig.

                              Edit..... this thread will get "ghayed" up here FYI
