    slow enron build

    so ive been accumilating things for enron's transformation. havent done awhole lot of work to her. Although some pics i took look familiar. J did the transmission(he was suppose to dip it in platinum but forgot). This is before its clean up. B17a is in the machine shop. should be ready to p/u by monday. Pistons are b16b Found a old skool rsr(thanks Stan)


    The build is going very slow unfortunately. I took pics of my current "green" vehicle ENJOY

          thanks nino.


          yuri- machine shop is called cascar in south sac. its by my inlaws and i was going to go to a place in livermore but they were twice as much. email me and ill hit you up with some of the prices. I feel there reasonably and very knowledgeable with bseries motors and yes we think alike when it comes to our cars


          burt- hahaha gee wonder why

          big ups to J for all his hard work. :thumbsup:

                Nice start Ryan, I can't wait to see how she turns out. Is this purely gonna be a weekend car? Cause PCT pistons are gonna give you pretty high compression, I know Duy was running them but ran into a lot of issues getting it to run OK on pump gas. Although he may have had the head/block milled a little.

                And don't worry, yours is fast compared to mine, I had been planning on being out at track days already... over a year ago...

                  yes tina I did. bought it back in june from pats friend who had it for about 60 days and realized the project was too much. hahaha lets just hope its not too much for me.


                  Hey colin. honestly its going to be a mix. I love riding my road bike to work. unless its pouring im normally riding. I really had thought this car would be running by sept. But i have a long way to go. I think im nervous to really start working on this car. Its been 6 plus years since ive done some serious modding.

                  my comp should be 11:4 to 1 id like to find some itr cams to go with those pistons I maybe calling you later this week colin. I have some questions about removing a few items from the db2 engine bay

                    Yeah, be careful w/ your compression calculations and be sure to include anything the machine shop is taking off, I think Duy ended up closer to 12:1. 11.4:1 is probably OK but beginning to get up there. A good tuner should be able to figure it out though.

                    Feel free to shoot me an email or give me a call, I'm working pretty much 9-6 right now while I'm recovering so I'm usually not available weekdays till after I get home. I've also got a ton of photos from my project, so depending on what you need I might have pics of it.

                    That's cool you're riding to work, I wish I was in the position where that was possible. I still would like to get a road bike (currently only have a track bike) so I can do some more serious riding. Spent 30min on the bike trainer this evening, first exercise I've had since surgery!

                      nice bro hows the shoulder coming?


                      you know i didnt ask for the head to be milled but im sure it will be checked. I dont want it to get any higher than 11:4 to 1. Thats high enough. my motor is still in the machine shop but its coming home this week so new pics are coming.


                      I defenitely will email you pics of my questions tomorrow have a good nite colin

                          Certainly is a slow build

                                          Makes me kinda a wish that J and Collin lived in my town...

                                          BTW, J, Collin... there is a 4 bedroom house with a 2 car garage and a pool, selling down the street.

                                          -proud owner of one of J's gearbox master piece. I hope:]
