Been a minute since I updated this. I haven't done anything with the Z as I'm still on the lookout for a donor. But I did find a new DD in the meantime. 2019 Golf R. So far I've done a stage 1 tune,...

Sounds like a plan then. I'm just happy that this car can take an additional 250hp without any "meaningful" upgrades. Meaningful meaning engine or other drivetrain issues... I come from a Mustang...

From what I've been reading on this forum and from my own general mechanical knowledge it seems like I'm on the right track so long as I don't want anything insane.:ughdance:

I hear you on that but for this car I wanna keep it to just head studs and easy stuff if possible. I have a Jeep 4.0 stroker project and eventually an LS3 for my 56 Bel Air that'll give me all the...

FI newb on a rebuild project

I've been lurking on the FI section for a while but until recently it's not something I'd seriously considered for cost reasons. Then, suddenly a Winnebago pulls across a major highway and f*cks up...

I should probably make a build thread. New stuff on the way: Mishimoto radiator, Z1 diff upgrade kit with Whiteline bushings, every idler pulley on the engine plus tensioner, serpentine belt, oil pan...

Thanks. The more I thought about it the less I wanted to lose my Z. I can't justify replacing it with another RWD sports car now that I have a 13 month old and everything else I like is out of my...

It pays to bitch apparently. I'm getting 17k plus the car plus the 2.5k bribe to not sue the sh*t out of Progressive. I can live with that.

Resale value is now nil, so after I inspect the unibody...

I always liked the FI TT kit. The whipple draws me because it's something totally different. My weird mad scientist mechanic buddy seems to think we can make it work. I'm not as confident, but the...

So. If I'm going to rebuild this thing I want FI. I really like the pulley up through the hood look but I can't find much about putting a Whipple on a Z except a 12 page argument on this forum....

So funny story. Not only was I able to mitigate injury by leaning back, relaxing, and (mostly) getting the hell out of the way of the airbag, somehow I also managed to not even stall the engine...

Yeah that's what I found too. I'm asking for an explanation of their value assessment and I may push the issue a bit. In any case the buyback is $2566, which would be dumb not to do.

Dunno man, multiple airbags popped and the front wheel is split. Coolant all over the road. It's totaled for sure but I'm not convinced it will be worth a rebuild. Maybe a part out if the buyback...
