While the car sits waiting for quotes for the build/rebuild, i'll be doing work on the body/misc stuff on the car.
making the tmic splitter
cutting out the trunk padding/deadening stuff, sanding trunk.
cant wait to get it to a shop in portland to get this motor going!!!

Got the mockup of the TMIC air splitter done. well mostly, still got to figure out how to do the cushion/rubber around the intercooler.
But i think it looks decent, and i'm sure will help some. who knows.
Mostly did this project because i'm bored until the car goes gets a new heart.

Iag shortblock is getting built, heads port matched to 2.5l. Everything is getting built the right way.
Did some sanding on the fender to get rid of the flaky clearcoat.
One thing led to another and sanded to much....
Cleaned it up and sprayed primer.
Put on the jdm tails.

Nice work on the splitter.
Cars gonna RIP when you get it rolling again.

Keep up the good work.

UPDATE!!!!!!
after waiting since March i was able to pick the car up this last weekend.
First impressions: engine sounds a little louder than a stock one, but i like it.
Looks pretty good also

LIST:
IAG stage 2 block
killer b pickup
ej205 heads were machined to match/other work
everything off the ej205 was swapped over
FXT radiator

drove it 94 miles home and no hiccups at all. Got a 1k mile break-in then go back for a power tune.

Time to slowly turn it into a wannabe track car.

picked up a set of snowflakes from a legacy
New tires, alignment.
BUUUUT
now the pass. rear tire is rubbing the 1/4 panel on hard turns.
The space between the tire and the panel is less on the pass, than it is on the driver side.
Unsure why.... i'm going to try and bend that flap up and see if that helps..

any suggestions would be great.
Pic of new wheels/tires.

Could the alignment be out on the passenger rear?
That could explain rubbing on only one side
