Re: Carl's 98 auto AWD project Black Magic

I picked up some 245/50/16 Nitto Drag radials off of Craigslist today. I'm going to put them on some 2G Swirlies I got off of Boomdeeze parts car that I scraped. They should Be a nice track setup for my car.

Curious to see how these work out, no need to worry I won't be stock appearing anymore.

I would have liked to go with a true slick or QTP, but for the price I couldn't pass these up. the new setup should be a few pounds lighter per wheel and better traction and more sidewall. So it should be a good improvement over my 18" street performance tires.

Yeah Im trying to do a bunch of small things that will add up. I still need to find a little more power and lose a little weight and I think 10.99 will be doable. So far I am loving the AWD auto. hopefully we'll be out at the track alot this summer.

A good driver could do it with a 5spd and the same turbo, if dsmghost runs E85 or race gas you will see him do it I think or beat the trap speed.

The perfect pass in a 5-speed will always be faster/quicker. I just got sick of missing gears and stripping teeth. I bought my car for the price of a built 5-speed from shep / Jacks etc so I'm happy. Plus my wife can easly drive this car whenever she wants including the track. I want to see her make a good pass this summer. she went 117 mph at proving grounds last year but the ET was off the mark. hopefully she'll get into the 120's and low 11's this year.

At least you can admit you missed gears, but stripping teeth? Weird at a low power level.

I striped 3rd gear twice at around 500 hp. 3rd and 4th gear are always easy to miss with a draging clutch and worn synchros. I'm to cheap for built trannys and twin disks.

Re: Carl's 98 auto AWD project Black Magic

A friend of mine bought a powdercoat gun and oven to customise his motorcycle so I decided I better have him do some parts for me. Next we're going to see if my track wheels will fit in his oven. I plan on doing an intake pipe and mabey a valver cover too.

Re: Carl's 98 auto AWD project Black Magic

I got my extra valve cover and Cams sensor coated black. Now I'm thinking I need to do the fuel rail, coil bracket and Intake manifold. What do people think. I also picked up a VW vaccume pump off of ebay to help hold the car at the line while stageing and I am plannin on makeing a 3.5" Hard intake pipe as soon as some couplers come in.

Looks good, now just get some black intercooler couplers and a black spark plug cover and it will be all kinds of stealthy!

Re: Carl's 98 auto AWD project Black Magic

I fabed up my 3.5 inch intake pipe with reserc pipe tonight. I still need to do some grinding on the inside where the 2 pipes meet and get it powdercoated but I think it turned out pretty good. I also pulled the fuel rail coil pack bracket and intake to get powfercoated to match the rest of the parts I already got coated.

Good to know. My dad was just asking about the HF flux core MIG, everything I read said it was a good unit.

Intake looks good! I've gotta learn to weld so I can try making cool stuff like that
