Your going to need alot more engine work to reach your 1000hp goal.

Things like:
100% methanol fuel injection
Grout filled block
12mm studs
Probably $2500 worth of head work of aftermarket parts and machining/porting
Motec or autronic
A gt45 turbo
twin plate clutch
Fuel system to suite
gearbox modified to suite

Just to name a few.



Not sure if serious?

Why would you use methanol when ethanol is available. Not only can ethanol provide more power but you also have this to consider https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cxd_CH2NIWE which is why methanol as a race fuel in the US is being fazed out.

Here are some videos of a few of things I have played with. How do you know I need more engine work? Pretty sure if you watch the video of my truck you will see I have the engine and supporting parts to make this goal. I have been doing this for 15 years. I still build and maintain an 8 second eagle talon.

The rear springs came in. Got the old ones out and the new ones installed. Maybe an inch or so shorter if I had to guess(was really just trying to get something that fit). They are 900lb springs. That should keep the weight transfer really far down I hope. I also spent about a half hour and removed all the windows. They came out pretty easy actually.

I got all the tar and sealant out of the window frames today. I also gutted the doors. Surprising how much weight was removed from each door especially given how light this car is to begin with. I need to go and get some more paint so i can paint the frame before the windows go in this week.

It will have the windows in it when I go to weigh it more than likely. Lexan but, windows none the less.

Total pain in the ass welding upside down but, the frame rail is clearanced for the transmission. I also figured out where I have to cut the k-member for the differential on the back of the transmission. It looks like I will not have to cut or relocate the steering rack like I originally thought i would(fingers crossed)

How much were they? Did you get a set for the front? They look like really solid springs. Wouldn't mind looking at getting some myself.

$66 a piece US. I have to order the coilover sleeves for the front and see what diameter the springs are in the set and order up a 500lb set for the front. The rears are 900lbs. A lot of spring.

I will have pictures tomorrow. Today was tear down day. I tore down the 4G62 that came out of this car so we can use it another day. I also removed the stock fuel system. I removed the exhaust they had on there as well. Hoping I could solve my positive rear camber issue on the driver side I tore the rear brakes off the car hoping to find my problem. I did not find anything I could fix to correct it but, now I know I have to do some cutting and welding to correct it. It appears the rear axle is bent. I went ahead and moved forward and removed all of the rear brakes, lines and parking brakes. Doing so will force me to put a parachute on the car. Which I want to do anyway. While in the left rear drum, I did find one big problem. The wheel bearing had blown up some time ago. There was nothing left of the cage and inner housing. All the rollers had fallen out as well. I ran to NAPA and grabbed a new race and bearing, repacked and installed it before putting the wheel back on. The other thing I did today was remove the stock shifter base and arms from under the car. I have to go and get some shifter cables and base from a DSM as none of the Cordia stuff is compatible.

So nothing exciting today. And I figure no one wants to see a pile of super dirty junk parts anyway. Tomorrow I am pulling the engine back out to do the final cutting in the engine bay for the new motor and transmission. I hope to have that finished and maybe get the engine back in there tomorrow as well.

Got the firewall boxed and welded back in. Got the left frame rail cut and boxed in for the oil cooler fittings. Got the k-member cut and boxed in the (hopefully) clear the differential on the transmission. Then spent the last part of the night cleaning and painting the engine bay. I will drop the motor back in tomorrow for what I hope is the last time for a while. I also blocked off the distribution block for the rear brake lines and got the final piece to the puzzle(almost) to covert my car to methanol full time.

My days were switched because I got a promotion at work and will be training for the next few weeks until I get a new set schedule. So I had to fly today. I cut the front bumper support in half and got it and the cover bolted on. I got the rear bumper lightened a little and got it and the cover on. I removed the lock cylinder and the rest of the cables for the rear hatch. While I was back there I bolted the license plate panel on as it does not weigh much and helps complete the rear of the car better. I welded up a looped rod that sticks out of the back of the car so when you pull it it releases the lock on the rear hatch so it can open. I got the front struts modified and put together with the coilover sleeves. I got the new rear shocks put on the car as well.


I cut the bracing out of the hood to help lighten it. I did some selective welding to help strengthen the hood some. I also spent a little time and had to raise the hood in the back a little to help clear the timing belt. It was either that or cut and notch the hood for the belt. I can deal with the hood sitting a little higher so I don't make the hood uglier than it already is. The hood was raised by welding in the hood pins to get the hood to the height I needed. I also got the lower front body trim under the bumper bolted on. I guess when the previous owner took the car apart he lost the middle piece under the bumper so I am going to get some more metal and just weld a new piece of sheet metal in the to complete the look of the front end. I did not take many pictures today as nothing exciting really happened. Just details no one really gets to see. I am going to try to tape the car off and paint it tomorrow. If i can get it done I will share those with everyone.
