thanks steve, well these isnt much i would need to ask about, I made sure i was well versed in the lsx platforms before i undertook this project,i tend to build a new toy every few years run it then sell it and repeat. i been turning wrenches both as a profession and a hobby for going on 20 years or so now so i learn pretty fast, i cant remember my wifes B day but i know that the rockers on a ls1 get torqued to 22 ft ibs lol. as for events i will be at every single friday race at beaver and every special or holiday event they host, but other then that i dont get out to much else, occasionally i make my way to a local car show or two. i pretty much eat, sleep drag racing not much else gets me out of the house.

When I very first got my car, I used to run all the time at Beaver on Friday nights. There was a guy with a yellow one of those with a big old turbo on it. He used to piss me off so bad because I'd get him off the line and got out on him to the 1/8 mile until he spooled up and he'd always come trucking around me right at the finish line.

Cool car and welcome.

the yellow 93 eg hatch was mine yes, i sold it to be able to build the 240z. that hatch was a fun car but it sucked for traction. its best et was a tire spinning 10.7 and the best MPH on 93 was 138 and on 110 was 143, but i got tired of spinning to the 1000 ft so decided to go back to RWD.

Great car!! :thumb

Hey Craig glad to see you made it on this board. Not sure if you remember or not but I came over and talked to you about your car for a few on Friday. You showed me the mini tub and the 4 link set up. Anyways enjoy the board.

Nice car! I am hoping that in a few years to have an LS1 or a RB motor in this one. Everything around it is built up for the power, I just need the motor and tranny. Here is a shot of mine after putting it away for the winter. She is called the flying pickle.
