I can't believe this thread is over 5 years old now! My where has the time gone..

The build that keeps on going is still not done, but we inch towards completion every other month or so.

Well let's sum up what's happened in the past 5 months.


November 2018:
-----------------------
The main goal was to get the motor assembled and sealed up.

Heads, plugs, etc


Dynosty Head Gaskets


Just a "VQ35"


CJM VQ37 FPD Rails, Synolimit Ported VHR Lower Intake Manifold


Synolimit Ported VHR Upper Intake Manifold & 63mm Ported TBs


Suckerpunch Motorsports Oil Pump, EPS Oil Gallery Gaskets, Greddy Oil Pan, Fast Intentions Oil Filter Relocation


Sold the my 19" RE30s and got another pair of 18s to step down on all corners. I couldn't find winning blue to match the rear so I'll have to fix the color issue..

Gram Lights 57xtreme 275/35/18x9.5 +22f and 295/40/18x10.5 +40r


Hangry



December 2018:
-----------------------
Christmas Roadtrip!




January 2019:
-------------------
Just keeps going and going...

ATI Super Damper


Fast Intentions Stage 3 - Xonarotor XR 65•64



Backside clearance over that "VQ35"



February 2019:
---------------------
Finished all the lines and "mocked" up the pipes





March 2019:
-----------------
Finally we can chuck this.. Omgwtfbbq!

Always be ready to eat your words eh?

We need clean up the years of neglect and cobwebs...




Hand "Car Wash"


"RB" Swap


Movement thanks to 2 MFP (Men Foot Power)


Fast Intentions Steering Rack Spacers - the detail to the design of their kit is amazing!


I guess you can say we dropped the car onto the motor instead of "dropped the motor in"


Home is where the heart lies


I love the Fast Intentions manifold, look how much clearance there is with these big ol turbskies (they are equivalent to GT35Rs)
My AAM TT kit did not have this good of clearance and it had smaller turbos




April 2019:
---------------
That's where we stand.. April's update will come after us fools get back to the garage..

But, the actual car was taking too long to rebuild so I decided to build a car simulator to get my seat time in instead.


And trust me, I really need the seat time..

Since you don't want to.. The cost for the 4Play platform, Fanatec gear, NRG seat, etc so far was ~$3500. That's not including the cost of the PC to run everything on - I upgraded that last year to prep for the simulator build. I'm currently using a Logitech G29 wheel temporarily while I wait for my DD1 to be shipped. Even though I'm using a "lesser" wheel right now driving the simulator is fun as hell!

Pretty much everyone I've spoken to has said the experience directly correlates, a friend who competes in Lone Star Drift calculated out the cost of taking his drift car, tires, brakes, etc + maintenance of running a fairly local track for 5-6 hours and estimated it would cost him $2-3k for a day. At the very least the simulator definitely helps the thirst for speed and hopefully it will help me stay on the course when I take my G to the track again IRL..

My work had one of these laying around so I'm going to try VR out this weekend.

Nice updates, Tony. Bet your getting very anxious to actually drive her again!

Loving the driving simulator too. Awesome set-up! Unfortunately my wife doesn't like to see my stuff sitting out when I'm not using it so I built a folding one with an old racing seat for my Xbox One. That way I can store it in the closet when I'm not using it. Then when I want to use it I can just pull it out and set it right in front of my 65" Samsung Plasma in my loft.
