  1. Steve Macdonald at Head Turnerz specializes in custom airbrushing on cars (his low rider is awesome) and they do restoration and custom paint in Selkirk. if you look Steve up on Facebook he has tons of airbrush work and custom classic trucks he's been working on.
  2. At least Sam took one away. Think of it as you just keeping the numbers level, as no one likes change right Shall be an interesting year! Tire changes will be the big key player as evolving compounds and new sizes may drastically change the playing field in classes. I predict the 245/15 to have the potential to upset the top in Street Mod.
  3. Lol. On a maxima of all things. I'll assume the hood latch or cable failed and this was the ricer.... err I mean racer solution on the fourth attempt. Speed holes....
  4. As long as you feel like a winner afterwards, that's all that matters.
  5. Re71r are too soft for lapping. Guys usually bought rs3 (v1) for that back in the day.
  6. Just comes down to three things.... -Insurance/liability -Theft/loss (broken) tools (large deposits would deter potential clientele) -final rental costs and Winnipeg being cheap What would be a reasonable hourly or daily rate? Would the setup costs be able to be recovered in a timely fashion, as if not your maintenance costs would catch up with your setup costs and it'd be a money pit... Great idea in theory, for an old shop that's being dumped to be converted into, but not feasible from scratch in a new facility (which is what people want/expect)
  7. Compound imo is too costly and pointless. Then spend the money on a variable vane turbo. If you size the turbo a touch smaller you will get the earlier spool which will translate to the torque curve you see on BMW's and vw's as of late. My corolla hit full boost at 22-2500 rpm, is that not quick enough? Lag can be beneficial as it can let the power come on gradually instead of slight switch overwhelming the tires/traction. I've driven both and especially for the street and autox the gradual boost is nicer as it's easier to drive. The v8 corolla will be this way when/if I turbo it. Talk to an experienced turbo guy when sizing/choosing your turbo and you can beat most stereo types and save several thousand in doing so vs twin charging. Jackson auto sport twin charged a Ae92 corolla GTS and spent nearly $10k doing that build and swap. It is not worth while for the outcome.
  8. I was hoping to work on this... I decided I needed a daily, to carry my daughter if need be and bought this low mileage 323i 5 speed from mpi... I'll get my ass handed to me but have fun. But alas, I got distracted and bought this, DS as well but with 130hp more... it'll be fun to try out. Edit: turns out it's an F-Street car!
  9. Superchargers require power to make power. There are advantages and disadvantages. I'm partial to a well built turbo setup as once in boost it's more efficient then a supercharger. The charger is quicker to respond, but you can tune to help alleviate some turbo lag, and if you size the turbo right, you don't encounter much lag at all. I turbocharged the 4afe. They take to boost very well. 100hp stock and i'd figure it at 180-200hp (crank) once done, as it ended up a mid/high 13 sec car. I still have the turbo manifold from it and the injectors are for sale in the forums here, should you want to turbo a 4afe/4age motor. Cheapest and easiest way to get more power. They have plug and play megasquirt for them too (ae86 4age motors) Your metal work is unreal and progressing very nicely. At least one project is moving forward on the forum
  10. I forgot to ebay these. Anyone want them? Open to offers.
  11. Would this take the pax of the lower car or both combined? http://orlando.craigslist.org/cto/5948013632.html
  12. I predict you will sell it before the season begins.
  13. Rust free 240sx? http://apps.mpi.mb.ca/salvage/SlvgItmImg.asp?salenm=3857&itemnm=361 Rally cross Suby wagon needing engine work? http://apps.mpi.mb.ca/salvage/SlvgItmImg.asp?salenm=3857&itemnm=50 Rally cross, Possibly Jim's old Sabbaru? http://apps.mpi.mb.ca/salvage/SlvgItmImg.asp?salenm=3857&itemnm=225
  14. Don't the rollover factors from autox apply? Grand caravan would not be legal in autocross Other point is to make sure all are aware that Mpi coverage does not cover damages incidents during the event. Have a blast this weekend!
  15. Had I looked earlier I'd have tried to make something happen. I'll keep an eye out for one closer to spring and see if digging out a beater car is feasable.
