    Default My Build Thread LS1/FD Its Fast!

    For condensed cliffs and pics visit the following thread!!!!
    http://www.nyspeed.com/showthread.ph...ures-Condensed


    I built a LS1/FD and it is rad.
    No I did not swap my red one I bought another one so yes I have two now before anyone bugs me about that. Seems like the money I saved on my shitty M5 coilovers went to good use.

    Pics? Fuck No Ok well maybe a few

    :shithitfan:

    Edit - ok im done being a prick haha
    The car is not complete but I might as well get this going since I started the thread.

    I would like to thank
    SWERVE!!!! <---Buy your parts from them!

    Choko
    Breetime
    Turbociv
    Craig(wtf is his name on here)
    Mike(wtf is his name on here)

    It would not have happened without all of you guys........and the chrome hammer

    How and why it happened:
    Well I have wanted a ls powered fd for quite some time and had an itch to get working on a car again. I found a nice donor car and got to work.

    Then right away we started getting it ready to be painted


    Then for whatever reason I decided to remove the entire interior(including dash now) to do some weight reduction, swap to black carpet, and clean everything real nice.

    For another unknown reason I decided the entire suspension, subframe, EVERYTHING had to come off the car. After I got everything apart I had brilliant ideas such as I NEED STANCE COILOVERS! I NEED A FULL DELRIN BUSHING KIT and I NEED TO POWDECOAT EVERYTHING!!!! as well as ss brake lines+ebc yellow pads. Which led to this:


    BLING!!!! (calipers sanded after to show mazda)



    Here is some random progress shots:






    I have been so busy with school I have not worked on it the last few weeks. Paint will be done soon this week I hope(black) Then I need to finish the interior and it is done mostly. I will get underhood shots once it is cleaned up some.

    Motor is an 02 with 35k miles and as for mods just your classic cam-only Trex setup with a bottle if necessary.

    I still think the coilovers are crap btw
    For what I am doing they will serve quite well. The next step up was like $800 more and well I made the decision to put it towards building this instead. Also I think your entire car is crap so we are good.

    for the record, I have no problems with you...I'm just saying that it seems like you get a little too upset about what other people think.

    I am glad I sparked this thread though, I like following the builds here

    No I don't take it personally at all. I just think it is rude of people to always want to interject their ideas of what one should do. I mean do you want people commenting on what you wear everyday, what you ate for lunch, how you did your hair? Well I sure wouldn't and when people bug me about a color, or wheel choice, or some other fggty opinion I just think it is douchy since I obv put time, effort, thought, and money to build things how I want. For people who like the feedback thats cool I guess but I just don't think posting a pic means OMGZ everyone tell me what you think and what you would have done!!!!!! Now that is enough discussing that in this thread feel free to pm me if you want to discuss it further.

    Lets focus on the cooler things like Heaters and pushrods.

    Yes but I built it mostly to tool around in and run some track day events so it might not see bottle at the 1/4 mile but probably on zzz highway.
