so things havent worked out in my favor lately.

i was planning on moving into a new place 2 months ago, with a shop to do work on my cars as well as side work.

wound up getting stuck in my current apartment again, which isnt horrible, but its not a place where i can work on cars and shit.

i have also had a shit situation at work, we have been bought out and new management came in and fucked everything around, fired a bunch of people, changed all our shifts, just made a real mess of things.

anyway, ive got about 2-3 months till the drift season starts again up here in the northeast, and i really want to get better. so, ive decided to sell off my toys. the bmw daily driver will be gone, was supposed to be gone already but have been having paperwork trouble with the new owner. selling my 4 wheeler. tryingto sell my streetbike. gonna try to get some cars to fix and flip for profit. will probably have a bunch of parts for sale soon also, including my wheels. i would love to keep the wheels, but i need new coilovers and some other shit more then i need bling wheels, i can always get another set later on.

its been warm lately, and i have a week off starting wednesday so if the weather holds out, im going to try to get some things going again, and shoot some pis to update this long overdue build thread.

For what its worth man, I so very much feel your pain. Just bought a Scion Xa for my wife and I can't do shit at the apartment complex and have to pay a shop to do everything. On oil place (Mobil) wanted to charge me $209 to change the 4 quarts of transmission flud. No thanks. Apartment living sucks ass.

:drinking:

car finally in where i can work on it, and i finally have lots of time.

Image

Image

Image

Image

pulled the engine and trans as one

Image

Image

Image

put the engine up on the stand and test fit the turbo manifold. i have to pull off both manifolds and replace some broken studs. im upgrading to the 10mm studs from the vg33e. im also cleaning and spraying the block down with some fresh black paint.

Image

welded the return for the turbo oil onto the pan

Image

stripped all the a/c, abs, and emissions crap out of the bay, and used massive amounts of degreaser. looks pretty good. i was going to paint it, but i think that will wait till next year, its in better shape then i thought, and i want to save up as much money possible for tires and whatever other little things might come up.
