I figured I'd write up a small update for you guys in case anyone was interested. Its 2019 now and the car is tucked away for the winter but I'm guessing most of you understand that this crazy obsession we have doesn't go dormant. I've been quite busy with plans, buying and selling things, and even a tiny bit of time spent working on little things on the car. So far I've installed a short throw shifter, spent some time wiring up the antilag stuff, and buttoned up a few small details on the interior.

Whats next you ask? Well here are a few things that I'm sure of at this point...

1) More effort to decrease intake temps. This will happen with a turbo blanket, a cold air box for the intake, coatings or wraps for the intercooler piping, vents, etc
2) More power! I just ordered a Greddy TD05h 20g and will be installing that. You might ask why go with such a small hotside, but I will elaborate on that later.
3) A different exhaust setup. Yep, I'm making something a bit more passenger friendly. I'd prefer to not have people hate riding in my car so an aluminum fender exit exhaust is in the very near future.
4) Corner weigh the car. This is something I'm very looking forward to and will tie into the next item on the list. Basically without this info I can't make anymore serious changes to the car.
5) Fiberglass hood & fenders. This will effect the cars weight front to back which is why I'll need to know where all my weight is. This won't be easy but I'm motivated
6) IF and this is a big if, the cars front to back weight allows for it without making things crazy front heavy I plan on making the rear glass lexan.... This is a huge maybe lol, for all I know my rear end is probably already way to light.

Anyway, this is the roadmap for 2019. Its possible all this won't happen but without a plan you don't have anything to strive for right? I get asked a lot "What are you planning on doing with this?" and my answer always is drive it. But I believe this year I will actually attempt to autocross it. I've also made a few friends in the drift community and would love to attempt that too.

Its going to be an exciting year :)

Just read through all 54 pages of this. It's awesome that you pushed yourself to learn all the skills to achieve what you have now. That's a truly unique car so whether people agree with your choice of styling or not, everyone could agree the work you've put in is nothing short of amazing. I hope to see this thing in person if you make it to the Pigeon Forge meet this summer.

That’s a breath of fresh air to hear that someone newer here has taken the time to put that much effort. It’s usually, my car is messed up tell me who and where can I take it to get fixed. Oh, and where can I get a new air dam and an 83 hood.

Haha, I bet! I probably spent a week or more reading through this in my spare time. Definitely picked up some knowledge out of this build as well as a few others I've read. As for the air dam and 83 hood... I'm picking up that rusted 83 hood in FS section this Saturday :P and while I want the 88/89 air dam, my 3 piece is in good shape so that' be saved for later. Can't pass on a rare 83 hood though.
