winter upgrades??

Post by RTW0223 on Tue Nov 29, 2011 2:12 pm

trying to come up with some ideas to tell santa to get me for the fox. I was thinking strut tower brace and subframe connectors but unsure of which brands to get. Also,any other suggestions? For the summer i have planned: catback exhaust, re-do headliner, fix all cabin noise once new catback is in, and at least new rear rims w/drag radials soi can actually put this rebuilt engine to the test. santa

What about an aluminum driveshaft or supercharger or sound system or short shifter or racing seats or go all out with neon underbody lights, huge spoiler, and NOS with plenty of window stickers

first note, in vid 2 how dare he route for the supra!!!!

and thats a real bummer man, 2 foxes both with blown HG (possibly). But as you said, youll be taking the engine apart anyways,so im sure youll find the problem and when you do let me know!

ohhh the 'luxuries' of a supercharger , haah

^^motor is already apart, blew between 2/3 and bent both rods on those cyl's and crushed a few of the rings in the ring lands on the pistons, = short block is toast, new short block will have probe pistons, skat rods and custon FTI blower cam and meth injection to lower IAT'S to avoid detonation, the 85 is still apart as well, haven't got the heads from FTI yet:(

Good deal on getting it back on the road. Finding the motivation in the cold months can be a real bear.
