Chugging along...

There was an AutoX event over the weekend. Master plan was to borrow a friend's wheels and codrive in STH (his wheels/tires are small enough, none of mine are). Swap over to the slicks and try them out with fun runs. Plan failed when my buddy's wheels didn't clear my brakes. We ended up driving his car and left my car at home.

After that, I threw in the towel and ordered a pair of 3mm spacers thinking I can use the spacers to get my stock wheels to clear. Got the spacers and still no love. At some point, I'll be changing the front brakes to a different kit and be able to run more wheels.

Yesterday, I received some more puzzle pieces.



Bummed they're not power. But the stock clutch has been having a hard time. Hopefully with this new clutch, this ridiculous fork, and the blast plates. I shouldn't have to worry about this stuff again. I'm excited.

And then today, like, just now, GTA posted a video from Round 2 and I'M IN IT!



Only kinda excited about that.

Here's the full video;

The car is rounding 120k. It's time to get things done. In addition to the pile of clutch bits, I got a set of spark plugs and dug up the SS lines that I had trouble with. Dropped the car off at RBMS Auto Care.

The car isn't perfect. Winston found some issues. First off, the coupler on the intercooler was melted.



Dropping the transmission, one of the CV boots was leaking...



After removing the flywheel, the main seal was also leaking.



TOB looked pretty good IMO.



Lots of dust and fibers in the bell housing. Clutch was used up pretty good.







Blast plates installed on the transmission.



With the spark plugs getting done, I also asked for a leakdown.

The results are mind boggling...



I can't believe it. Engine is extremely healthy. It really doesn't make any sense.

Did some things...

Found some small red wheels for STH shenanigans.



Then flipped on some big pink wheels for ASP shenanigans.



The pink wheels were fun.



The red wheels are 17x8 with 235 R-S3

The pink wheels are 18x10 with 285 R1S

All tires are really old.







Some videos of the action;

Went back out for some more AutoX action. Had back to back rounds. Went out in GTA spec... Grip seriously lacking.

Came across a post for an STi that was being parted out locally. I was able to nab some pieces from it.





I still need a few more pieces. But I'm excited to have all black interior.

Also excited to have a not melted bumper. I'll probably be cutting up the melted bumper for some aero bits.

Always need more taillights.

Where to begin...

Ordered the rest of the pieces for the headliner. Just about ready to swap that in.

Got around to changing the intercooler coupler. The old one was in really bad shape...



Got the new tires mounted up. They're much wider than the old tires even being the same size.



Even being mounted.



New brake pads also came in. No pictures on those. It was pretty touch and go with them.

Made it out for Global Time Attack ProAm Round 3 at Buttonwillow.



Friend to a sweet picture before I went out.



After one flying lap, the engine gave up the ghost...


Luckily I had another talented friend following along on Facebook.



My goal was 6th place. I did one lap and it was recorded. At the end of the day, it was good enough for 5th.



Hooked it up to take it home.



But of course my day wasn't over...



Finally got home around 3am. Car is with my mechanic. Official diagnosis is pending. My money is on a spun bearing. Not sure what the plan is going to be yet.

Car between the posts...



Engine out...



Lots of oil in and around the intake.





Some chunks in the pan...



Well, there's the problem...



At this time, the problem is a spun rod bearing on Cylinder #1.

Part ordering for rebuild has begun. Next few days should be exciting.

Teardown continues. Learned today that the pickup is clogged with rod bearing...



Another has been ordered. Not stoked on that...

Damn I missed all this while I was out.

Were you commuting when it gave up the ghost or Auto-X/track day?

We will rebuild bigger and better or build it and toss it?
