Going to drop in better intake cams, degree them and throw it in as is. Set it to 450whp and shift at 6800 and hope it holds till I get the actual build done. I'm sick of this car sitting

Adapter plate came in today. This thing is LEGIT. Going to take it to a local guy and see how much a copy would be.

What did they use to anchor the studs into the adapter plate Scotty?

Yes. I can see that.
I'm wondering if they are some sort of custom made threaded anchors? Or are they something that you will be able to find as an off the shelf part?

The rest of it looks like it would be fairly simple to copy. You could do it with a jig saw and a drill press.
If you ever wanted to make multiple copies, probably the most economical way to do it would be to have the adaptor plates water-jetted. And then do the counter-sinks with a drill press at home. Those stud anchors will be the most difficult part.

Yeah I bet I could just get the plates cut out and then do the holes at home and use a lug nut to pull the studs through. I have a drill press.


In other news... called about these...

Corbeau seats


Also looking again for more **** to sell. Just sold that Teksid for $300. I bought the motor for $350. Intake sold for $250, cams for $200, block for $300, rods and pistons for $100 and I got a LOT of the small parts I need for my motor. I'd say that was a good find.

I did find an aluminator block with 3V rods/pistons/crank and oil pump/pickup/tray for $550 but that's a little too much and the guy can't verify the mileage 100%. Pass...

They can do all of the holes with the water jet. When I had the flanges cut for the cat deletes on my truck, the holes just needed to be reamed out a bit to make them the correct size.
If you don't want to make copies immediately, you can just make an accurate template of the plate with some poster board, or otherwise suitable material, and that is all they need to water jet the plates. I just brought them a gasket to copy when I had the flanges made.

You can actually download a cad program for free... Autodesk student or something like that will allow you to make your self a templet and save it so you could just send it to any company to have cut. Or give me a supper accurate drawing I could do it solidworks 3D no problem.

So in my hunt for a true black interior as I ****ing hate the charcoal interior especially in a silver car (looks blue) I found a 94 v6 parts car complete for $500 with a black interior. Going to go look at it this weekend.


Also is black exterior so if its in good shape and I get it I can play around with black roof trim and black 94-98 sail panels which do bolt to a 99-04 car. To go with the black roof.


Then hopefully part the rest out for a few $hundred and sell off my charcoal interior and make it all back. That's the plan anyway if the interior is in good shape. Nothing like an entire parts car.

What are your goals for this car Scotty?

Because I found a straight trade for one that has just been redone with poly bushings and everything. It's a 99 but I will upgrade it to 03 spec when I put in a built motor.

Goals...street car, better handling, better weight distribution, I like tailpipes and having them with a ta/phb is a pain in the crank.

It is also a swap that is getting done this week because the guy wants it by next Thursday.

Also getting me a free upgrade to rear cobra brakes.

Cool!
I had assumed that you were more focused on straight-line performance.

Are you trading exhaust systems, as well?

Yep he has a brand new looking Mac catback. Not my first choice but not bad. I have a friend at work who is selling a Magnaflow setup soon anyway so I will see where he is at before I put them on.

And no to the straight line. I mean I'll take it to the track but not super concerned with it. Hell I have had a few ppl tell me I should trade the Novi setup for a Termi and ported blower but I dunno about that... I mean the IRS swap is one thing but the original Novi is kinda cool. And makes the car a Steeda build...

Pulled the sra today. Garage is a disaster... Will clean up tomorrow and load it. Not missing game 7. It's dusty but in real good shape and I have to say Steeda did a badass job back in 2000 with this 4 link.

It'll all clean up real well for the new owner, just dirty.

You are getting pretty good at this trading up thing... I mean look at that rusty hunk of iron that you are trading for that beautiful IRS!


Will your existing drive shaft work with that setup?

Yep he has the correct flange on it. And I sent him a TON of pics... he's good. That SRA is not a "rusty hunk of iron" lol. Actually 34k miles, 3.73s, Steeda uppers and lowers, Steeda adjustable swaybar, Steeda regular swaybar, slotted rotors and poly bushings everywhere except the chassis side of the UCAs which is a good thing.

But I am super stoked. Making the swap Tuesday, need to find some IRS springs and shocks since he has coilovers and isn't trading that setup. I should be able to get Termi springs for $20 and then figure out the shocks.

I'm from California, it is a rusty hunk of iron. Lol.

It will clean up easily enough though.

That will be a nice addition to your car!

Yeah well the stick axles all do that from the factory pretty much. Steeda really did a bang up job on the 4 link tho. Also while it's out I'm going to put the battery in the trunk and drop the tank to do the fuel pump. Staying returnless for the stock motor and will go return when I do the built one.

Besides messing with the brake lines a little its a 100% bolt on for 99-04s. I just need to find some cheap temp springs and shocks since this guy has coilovers and is keeping them. Might just get some springs and leave the sra shocks in while it just sits in the garage.

The IRS uses a spring perch similar to the front springs, so SRA springs won't fit since they coil inwards.
