Sounds like I'm going to have my work cut out for me in SM when I start autoxing again.  IF your feeling saucy I have steeringboxes from TWIs to throw in your car as well.  Complete the transformation 100% then

I am intrigued by the steering box change.....what exactly is the difference?

And BTW I got 102 Auto-x runs in last year :P . Lost the clutch at the last event, otherwise all I broke was an exhaust hanger.  

Here's a few shots and some on track vids.

Got the gauges, MK1 short throw and fuel pressure regulator in this weekend. Along with the head unit. diff mounts, torque tube mounts and engine mounts. Went out for a drive and it seems to be lean while cruising and rich when boosting. Got home and I have a number 3 ECU code (MAS) so I'm guessing boost leak. Boost leak test kit will come out tomorrow evening after work.

The car is dirty so please be nice. I haven't had a chance to clean her up inside or out yet.

Sorry about the blurry cellphone pics. Haven't taken any good pictures yet. Currently only has a 6 psi spring in the waste gate so I haven't even got a good pull on the engine yet.

I should have more info in a few days. Trying to put some miles on the engine before I crank the boost up to about 18psi. Got a decent tune in it at 9.5 psi. It is running very nice right now. Kind of hard to get used to the BSEK and the the lightened flywheel. It is bit of a trick to get going on a hill start without killing the clutch or the tires. Last compression check was at about 50miles had 120psi on the two outer cylinders and 130 on the two inner. Hoping they come together a bit after a few more miles.

Also the block is Mopar MAX Wedge orange. Summit had it on closeout and I wanted something other than black so that's what I got.

I had been fighting an occasional huge puff of smoke out of the engine bay under boost. Turns out it was a lose clamp at the water pump outlet that only leaked when the revs were high and revs only were high when I was boosting. it would spray out and the rad fans would blow it back against the exhaust manifold causing a huge puff of smoke when it hit the exhaust. I have it all fixed now.

Well its about time I update this.

After fighting a huge amount of gremlins I have the car running good. I have around 3000miles on the motor and it is running real good. I have a nice tune at 15psi that I have about 20 auto-x runs on. The car performs well on the auto-x course. It is a hair more laggy but much more torque and throttle response at partial boost/power. The car seems to be more controllable now when the tail is out compared to the 14b.

I ran a 15.095 @ 95.0down the dragstrip at Norwalk with a 2.5 60' for time. I only had three tries and never got the launch quite right. This was with the boost at about 17psi.

I am dropping about 3psi between 3k and 6k but I know that I have a leaky 1g bov. I have just purchased a hks SSQV w/ the recirq fitting hopefully fixing this drop in boost.

With a car weight of 2800lbs the innovate is showing 177HP and 195 ft/lbs calculated HP/TQs this is at 14.5 psi dropping to 12psi. Timming is at 10*

I hope to get a bit more time in the street tune then get it on a dyno before the snow flies.

There's a shift light on the column. The stock tack wont keep up with the engine any more.

Bought a set of SHP'9s with BFG 250/40/16 Drag Radials on them. They cleaned up decent and fit well under the Flatty after some quality fender rolling time.

The 9"s fit width wise no problem after the fenders were rolled. The coilovers just need just a few cranks up to give me a bit more room. Work has been nuts so I haven't had a chance to get any more logs or out the dyno or the track. Should be putting the car away sometime next week.

Your more than welcome to take her for a drive some time next spring.

The bad news is I will probobly only get one more inspection out of her. The front fenders are completely rotted out, as well as the portions of the body to reattach them to.  Worse is after every auto cross I find bits of rust allover the dash. There is starting to be significant rot around the windshield. More than likley will be on the search for a good solid body in the next year or so, then I can swap everything over.

I don't need 3, just one and I think I am going to stick with a flatty. I plan on putting 215/45/16 A6's on a set of 7's next year for auto-x. Should just need about a 5-10mm to keep them off the strut on the inside.

Just re-introducing myself, Looking to get away from the garbage environment that is social media for awhile. I always enjoyed the community here.

I still own the car. I have had 2 kids in the last 4 years, so she hasn't seen much road time or any auto-x. Last year I didn't even get her out of storage.

Goals for this year:
Drive once a week to work,~70 mile round trip.
     *This does assume we aren't all still working from home.
Car has an electrical gremlin in the form a a low voltage loop. The ECU losses o2 reading if the headlights are on?
     * planning on a microsquirt install while remaining TBI
      * Rewire low voltage gauge cluster
      * finish install of MSD 2step
I have a set of rear SHP shocks modified for front inserts that needed welded and installed
