So its been a long time and no updates. The car is back on the road finally but I still have more work to do. I did get some new seats and Momo Monte Carlo steering wheel for the interior.

Here are some pics.

After the bay got painted and I dropped in the motor and trans.

I got them just before the car got back on the road. They sit a little high, I am going to have to make my own seat rails again. They are very comfortab le though.

Did some more work today to get the b20 ready for some vtec. I ended up putting my Toda valve springs and Omni retainers in the head. Its a little overkill for ITR cams but since its going on track I do not want any issues. I will eventuall y end up putting some Supertech springs and retainers in there and use the Todas in my other motor. The valves are Crower flat faced to get a little more compressi on out of the stock b20 bottom end.

Not long ago I picked up some Ground Control top hats for my front suspensio n.

almost all of my brake setup is here just waiting on the Russel brake lines to come in. They should be here sometime this week.

I got a little more done on the motor build. Since this car will be on the track I figured I would put a baffle in the oil pan. Its the PasswordJ DM one, its easy to install and fit the oil pan good.

I also installed ARP wheel studs all around, replaced a bad drivers side wheel bearing and new outer tie rod ends on both sides. I just got in my Hardrace rear trailing arm bushings. They have been on back order and took about 2 months to get in  :'(

I will post pics of them up later, they look really beefy.

Installed the head studs in the block and getting ready to clay the engine to make sure my P2V is good.
