It's been a few weeks since an update because I can only order things once every two weeks. Anyways, my buddy convinced me to buy a 50 dollar underglow kit so I did. I also bought a set of glowshift gauges because they were having a deal where you can buy three gauges and a pillar pod for dirt cheap so I bought a pyrometer, boost, and oil pressure gauge. I put the underglow on and it's pretty sweet. The only difficult part was finding a place to mount the bars and hide the wires because that is NOT easy on a stock body. I also ordered magnets for numbers and letters for autox. My next buy should be a catch can, fuel pump, and head gasket depending on how much I get paid.
I am in dire need of type R side skirts and a front lip along with some blue paint on my wheels, the gold is killing me with all the new blue things.
Here are a few pics of what I got!

Just bought some car parts and had some left over cash for some paint so I spent my weekend with my car and this is what happened.

Painted my valve cover



Painted my calipers



Cried over my spark plug seals failing on me. (I replaced them)



Made my tire lettering white because I love my retro ass wheels.



The final products! I'm gonna paint my battery tie down blue one of these days.





My walbro 255, catch can, and intercooler should be here some time this week and I still have yet to go and pick up my head studs from the shop I ordered them from.

Got some go fast parts today and yesterday! I'm glad to be one step closer to being faster! I think I only need my turbo, BOV, exhaust stuff, intercooler piping, head gasket, and injectors. Started thinking about a waste gate and if I needed one for a gt2560r since it has an internal one. Anyone know about this? I haven't had time to do research on it. Anyways, I got my fuel pump, intercooler, catch can, and oil filter sandwich plate so I can hook up my oil pressure gauge.

Ended up having an hour of spare time so I put in my walbro before my girlfriend showed up on sunday and we drove to the coast! It ran great and Im pretty satisfied with it. At idle, you can hear it run and it only gets louder with less gas in the tank. A guy told me to keep the tank filled as much as possible so it doesn't harm the pump. Turning my key on is now more entertaining because it makes me feel like I have a crude race car I just got paid today and am gonna buy an HKS SSQV BOV, an OEM head gasket, and some 410cc injectors from rywire.com. after that it is pretty much just waiting for my turbo and exhaust items and a tune and a huge install party

Well I finally got time off during the day so I went in to town and picked up my autox magnets and ARP studs.

The studs that the garage ordered were for the B20 with a B16 head so I have no idea if it will work with my B18B1...Anyone know if it will work?







Does anyone have any idea what kind of nut this is and what socket will fit it? The instructions don't say anything about them.

Also, I am not sure which side to put in to my block and which side goes on my head.

One side has an allen key on the top of the threads and the other doesn't so I am completely lost!



My mishimoto catch can also has a big problem because I was gonna connect it to my PCV and then out in to my IM but I can't find a thread pitch and diameter that will work and the hose they gave me is too big for it. With that said I will probably send back the can.

I also ordered an HKS BOV, grams 550cc injectors, and an AEM UEGO wideband kit. Hopefully the injectors will work fine for my 240WHP goal. Any clue if I can just wire in the wideband with my current tune and have everything run the same?

The arp studs are a 12pt 13mm socket I believe.

Exciting stuff has happened lately. I received my BOV, injectors, and wideband! It just makes me happier the closer I get! I talked to my tuning shop and they said to not go with a turbo that's too small or it won't perform very well so they recommended getting an evo turbo and mate it with a manifold they already have made which will save me loads of money and time for this build! They showed my a dyno run of a guy that had an evo turbo and the thing spools so quick and powerful it's ridiculous! Anyways, here is some porn for everyone who likes to look at it!













More to come in a week or two due to payday on the 1st and AutoX on the 8th and 9th? Anyways, I found a fellow evo owner who said he would part his Evo8 turbo for 250 bucks since he wants an evo9 or 10 turbo anyways. I can almost hear the choo choos!

So I finally got a full day off today which was much needed! I decided to tackle my gauges and installing them. Took me roughly 4 hours because I like to take my time and hide wires properly. Anyways, I wired in the power wires to everything and connected the white wire on my AEM gauge to the WHT/RED wire on my ecu and it just reads 14.7 or 14.8 all of the time so I have no idea if it is correct or not. I moved my EGT probe, oil pressure wire, and my boost tubing to my engine bay too so it will be easy to put on when I get my turbo. Here's a pic of my gauges and all of the hidden wires.





And this is the wire I spliced in to. My 98-01 manual says the D14 pin is a BLU/RED wire. I am honestly confused on which one I am supposed to connect it to.



With two other angles





This is an OBD2b to OBD1 conversion just for the record.

Sooooooooooooo car parts...YEAH!

Went to my tuner shop and bought a three core half sized radiator and a used B-series to evo turbo manifold which saved me about three hundred dollars. I also bought some rod bolts because they will install it for free if I buy them I also went autocrossing but that video will be a different day!

Here's the money shot!



I just need another paycheck or two and a turbo along with misc. parts. I am way too stoked for this and can't wait!

Thank you! It's been a rough summer since I have spent every hard earned dollar I made on my car but it will be worth it in the end!

Finally got my turbo!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now I just need another paycheck and a lot of time for labor and such! Only part that sucks about all of this is I am gaining back all of the weight I took out which is discouraging...Here's some money shots!















39.4lbs!!!! My header right now only weighs maybe 5lbs! At least it will be more power!
