Build Journal Break-in Period - Candidates Needed!

Post by DLC » Wed Mar 12, 2008 4:44 am

Because of some suggestions made by member in this thread:

http://bbs.legacycentral.org/viewtopic.php?t=35151

This forum has now been created:

http://bbs.legacycentral.org/viewforum.php?f=25

Rules are relatively simple and will be enforced.

Now I need suggestions and candidates for threads.

I would say I'm in except after taking 1 year to reassemble the engine I have my doubts there would be an update more than once a year :cry:

Next year some time. :roll: We are installing a Haltech E8 now, just to try and get it operational. I think I'm getting bent over a bit, but not much I can do about it; the car is 150 miles away...

Thanks Dave, I posted. Kindof a cool idea if I do say so myself! Especially with no other (off topic) posts allowed... much less cluttered.

I was wondering if I could get a build Journal started? I know I am noob here, but I have a pretty good build going on with Lots of pics. I have it posted on NASIOC, but those guys dont really seem to care much about anything that isnt a wrx or STi.

car:94 Lego Wagon RS Turbo Automagic
engine: built 22t, forged internals, EJ25 heads, intake, PP6 EM, ARP studs, etc

this will be a good build and should be completed in about a month or two. It will also be recieveing some suspension goodies, and brake work.

Thanks for the consideration.
