    CURRENT PLANS:
    atm just looking to rebuild another 4AGE 16v out of the car... still havent fully decided what the rebuilds going to entail, still reading and learning a lot.. but it will for sure have a smallport bottom end with a bigport head, ITB's, Cams and a standalone ecu... more than likely aftermarket pistons also, just ironing out all the finer details at this point... anyone who feels they can help me in this regard whether it be information or even just pointing me in the right direction with parts/builders or what not, would be much appreciated... looking to build something around 180-200hp give or take...

    been a while since ive posted an update... so here it is. im not big on writing so here's pictures to compensate
    got a pair of average guards that i wanted to flare. also wanted a bit of practice with panel beating and painting. this is the progress so far.
    i ended up buying a compressor and a few other bits aswell

































    my guard rolling tool i didnt have a pole lol


    New set of extractors. courtesy of Kaizen


    Brake setup fitted.. probably shouldve painted the calipers..


    small port short motor i bought for my project build

    mine is a 2.5hp compressor and its not too bad. the compressor is a supercheap auto special. i only bought it because it was an ex demo so it was $114, couldn't resist as for the air sander mine is also an el cheapo from masters but it definitely hogs a lot of air... i can use it constantly but the pressure does drop off gradually. i like to take small breaks here and there to let the compressor build up a bit more air pressure so the sander has a bit more grunt, especially when sanding stubborn bits. but generally speaking its enough to get the job done, for what i paid i expected worse to be honest. Depending on how these guards turn out i may even do the rest of the car which would really put it to the test.
