Long time Coming! Here come the Updates

OK, so I have finally been paying more attention to good old Bianca. Its been a long journey with this old Gal, but she only gets stronger every time. This time around, I replaced all of the front end suspension, added a new vader seat, reinforced the Front subframe, and now currently working on the rear end of the car by adding reinforcement plates and AKG Rear Trailing Arm Bushings. Definitely didn't come easy and was a pain in the ass to fit everything but it has come along quite well and progress was made. Anyway, on to the pics!!!

Slowly, but surely making progress..My build Pics!!!

OK, so I have made some great progress as I want to make this car stronger and more durable for track purposes so I started a bottom end tear down, not too crazy, just the oil pump shaft changed (compliments of Achilles Motorsports) new Oil pan gasket, cleaned and painted oil pan, new Meyle HD control arms and sway links, Bimmerworld track cabs, Tinted Headlights, new Lubro moly oil and Meyle filter, and soon to come reinforced front subframe with a fresh powdercoat, new reupholstered Vader seats and freshly painted cab interior floorboard. Trying to make as much progress as possible so I can begin to tear down the rear end for durability. On to the pics!!

Well deserved update.. Track Prep and new wheels!

OK, I know its been a looooong time since I have updated this post, however there has been some big changes going on with Bianca. I have lots of little quirks to figure out still tuning wise, however, she's coming together slowly, but surely. I have upgraded quite a few things since my last post so I will post the updates and photos of the following. New wheels, wheel stud conversion, window tint, and intake boot. Hope you all enjoy!

Heater Core Removal

Wow this was such a pain in the ass!! Tearing down the dash and accessories wasn't so bad, but the heater core itself was indeed a hassle. It literally took me about 4 hours total I would say on and off. However, I have accomplished such a feat and created a "block off" plate for the huge hole where the core once was and wire tuck. Now on to the plumbing, I have more to do still and a few parts to order, however this was its current state as of last night. I was contemplating on painting the dash a solid black however I like the two tone feel it has. I anticipate a weigh in and track run soon so this is going to be fun once I get everything in order. Interior will be finished in its "street form" until I can afford new seats and belts.

OK, So after reading a bunch of different write-ups and reviews on how to plumb the heater core lines I have decided to "loop" the cooling system, and it seems to work. Here's what I ended up doing:

It was fairly simple, just used a PCV Elbow valve and used some of the existing clamps I had and Viola! Now I have a small air leak that's bugging me ugh! Always something, Oh well, That's all for now, thanks for tuning in!!

Minor Update...

I have done a few adjustments to the car lately, I had a misfire on cylinder 2, but problem was solved, just a dirty plug thank god. I did quite a bit of weight reduction in the doors and took off all of the brake dust shields for a brake duct upgrade. Here is a few photos of what I have done, Plenty more to come. Plans for it will be paint and headers for a full N/A setup. Will have videos and photos of the setup with a dyno run I'm hoping. Anyway, on to the photos, enjoy!!!
