Thought I'd start a re-build thread I can update regularly. I always get lost and I've been away for so long it would be nice for people to see it all in one thread from the beginning; which is where I will start. 01-05-2007 I picked up my zed from a member James Strom (Strom) and this happened to be the first picture I ever took of it/her. It didn't run right when I first got it, needed a tuning bad, new coil packs (running on 5), Still being in school I didn't have money to pay for what I wanted. Photo shows how rich she was I did what I could and drove it around for a while, had fun. Just before I turned 18 (February 2008) the head gasket decided to leak. Even the upper plenum filled up with coolant Sometime around February 2009 with help from a few members and friends the engine came out - While plans of a RB26 going in or building a monster VG30 got tossed around in my head she sat in the garage gathering dust... Little tribute to a bit of dodgy work and steve smacking himself in the face (lol) I forgot about along the way... In February this year I painted the engine bay hoping that this would motivate me to finish the build. It seems In February each year there seems to be a little wind making the zed all piece together. So hopefully by February 2011. The motor will be in the bay and tuned.
