R2D2

Postby runkillerrabbit » Wed Jan 23, 2013 12:20 am

started the project around 2006 bought it from ronny.

Image
Image
Image

the car has been sitting around. took it down to san diego once and started overheated. so i got a replacement at autozone and swapped out the radiator. but failed on the smog test. at this point i thought i knew enough to fix everything and i tried rebuilding the bluetop. but i realized i had no idea what the heck i was doing

very clean engine i gotta say... before i pulled it.
Image
took me 2 nights to pull it
Image

i took the valve covers off tried to take off the pulleys and relized i dont know what the hell im doing.

so i pause all mechanical work and prep my car to go pacs auto body

Image
Image
Image
Image
realized the cut out of the moon roof is really messy! i regret not getting this filled up while i was getting the body work.
Image

kinda looks bad ass desert camo ish? haha

at the same time i sent my interior to get reupholstered with faux leather
Image
Image
Image

so while i was getting that sorted out
ive been researching and deciding what route to take. this took about 3 years. in that 3 years i decided to oem bluetop build then to black top with dizzy re locater. oem ecu. dr tweaked harness. i even went to fullerton college automotive program passed engine drivability class to learn how to properly work on cars. rebuilt a 1970s dodge 350 from the ground up at school.

damn kids always messing around only reason why i hated going to school. idiots wasting time asking stupid questions.
Image
where the engine came from
Image
my first rebuilt engine that started and ran perfectly. sometimes having ocd is good.

sorry about the blurry picture
i went all aem electrical on this
combined the aem universal harness with a dr tweaked blacktop to bluetop harness
did all the wiring by my self to this point.
Image
Image
got it to start after ages and ages of research and messing with preset supra settings the aem program came
at this point im trigging the coil and iginter with the aem ems-4 computer and sp-tech dizzy relocater
but it was firing right. didnt sound right at all.

its getting the wiring harness redone and tuned at fsr (turboed supra tuners)
