Car is still not done.... (T.T)

Hey guys, been a while....life's been busy and haven't been here. What'd I miss?

My car is still in a million pieces with the engine on the floor. turns out my ring gaps were all wrong and in two pistons, the rings gaps were lined up (big no no). good news is the engine is all put back together, the head is done, and hopefully in the next coming weeks i can find the time to drop it in with the new gt30r, phenolic spacers, and a few other random knick-knacks like the steering rack bushings, etc.

hope you all had a happy 4th!

I'm in the same boat as you.. sorry to hear that but sounds like you're making progres!

I was expecting to be making fireworks from my exhaust, first, before being able to say Happy Independence Day.

"hopefully in the next coming weeks"

I have everything I need to stick it on but not wanting to put it on yet until I figure out these new injectors. i.e. tune.
