Keep up the awesome work John, it's definitely inspiring me to start looking for T56 pieces and whatnot for my LQ4 swap.

very rough early stages only got about 2hrs on it so far, finally getting the dash going. hopefully I'll have it pretty far underway by the end of January.
I have a digital version built but the pics are at work, and I'm not (thank god)

I got a few different ideas, but like always on paper and real life are two different things. Its going to be fiberglass, covered in suede with a mix of carbon fiber. Shooting for half the weight of the stock dash, shouldn't be very difficult. Very simple, but more modern than the stock set up. I could never stand the stock dash. I'll post a better pic soon.

You laugh because I drive a Geo Tracker, I laugh because I get 31mpg and fill my tank for $20.

judging by the amount of shims you used in the tie rod end, you must have lowered the steering by about 2 " ?
how did you adjust your 'ackerman angle' with the short, front positioned steering arms?

Just don't let that get you sloppy.
Tolerances accumulate, so for every little bit of 'adjustment' you allow for here or there, will add up somewhere else. You don't wanna leave 1/32 of an inch in a handful of places and end up needed 1/2" of adjustment where you can't make it happen.

I just started a StarQuest build here in GA and we're building it as a drift car as well. I wanted to go with an LS motor but the guys at 4G Performacne said they wanted to put a 4G63 in, so that's the direction we're going in.
Anyway, good luck with it and let us know when it makes it to the track.

I would love to see some pics of your car.
