Decided I would start a thread to chronicle some of my build so I can look back and remember the fun I had doing this.
ZFever has harnesses for the VQ37HR working great with Osiris/Uprev which makes this swap a reality now.
Got a few pictures as the car is now, I blew up my 3.2 stroker build not long after that action shot was taken. Block I believe failed due to heat stress. Got some pics of that aftermath, I thought the engine would just run cooler if I dumped a ton of coolant into the crankcase. Blew off a PCV line and had a crazy amount of vapour pour out of the engine bay on the track. Got my heart pounding
This engine actually still started and ran by the way!
I have a collection of parts coming in soon, but will try to make large updates rather than a ton of small ones over the course of the winter. Found an excellent shop to do paint/body and most all of the work will be handled by professionals, I really don't have the time to do this kind of project on my own. But many props to those of you that make the time and do it all on your own.
Will have turn signals, and even a CEL. The redline on the reflash will actually be set @ 8100RPM, but not sure I will need to go past 8 so I am happy with the look of the tach, the 10K tachs to me I do not like the spacing as much. These gauges were a design that I basically copied/inspired from the AWR guages made for Miatas.
