Default This Weekend at HMT, Lots a Pics..

Well, Beau started off this weekend by getting my new manifold built for My LS/Vtec. I must admit he is doing a very fine job for his first time for something like this. Here are a few pics of the manifold.









It's very nice, all done in stainless, Not sure what the exact sizes are, and how many pieces he used... Beau is getting good with his new Tig welder.

My batteries died on the digi camara, but its pretty much all finished now, Will get some more pics once its cleaned up.

Saturday Night I got a Engine Swap setup for me and Beau to do, it was a basic ZC swap in a 90si crx. We took a few pics for the hell of it.



A very clean D16a6



You can see the 2 differnt plugs for the ZC distributor, and the factory SI harness, Just showing for those people who dont belive me, their is some wiring involved, (cough Dustin)



Pops wanted us to do a clean install, So beau Busted out the sexy baby blue paint and painted up the manafold shield for our customer.. (LMAO) <--- yes beau you know what that means?!?!?



We were never going to actually put the heat shield on the car, but we did decide that the Oil pan may rust (LOL) so maybe we should give it a thin coat of baby blue.. hahaha



We also tried a different way of pulling in and out of the motor, I wasnt really use to this style, I have always taking the tranny and engine out as a unit, But Beau has showed me the independent flat rate style



Dont you hate those god damn stickers that are on the new radiator hoses that are a complete bitch to get off? Well I just got to excited picking them off, and decided to get them nice and wet. HAHAHAHAH! (the big black hose)



Finally done, it took a bit longer than what we are use to, since we had to work out at the barn, and we had no motovation. But it came out very clean, and runs very nice.



This is are holding/storage shop, AKA "THE BARN" refabbed into a import race garage. This is where my Race car is stored.



Beau made me take these pics, to show everyone how lazy I am. Yes, this is the Big bad boy Race ZC.. Look how fast it is. It needs some major work, it seems to have been used for parts more than anything lately.. Oh well, need to get a bit more money and the race car will be priority #1. Should be done in time for Race season... (the night before opening day of course)

btw, I dont have a clue when the rest of the website will be done....

Oh I forgot to mention about when we were delivering the car, Beau was driving my car, and he decided to break my shift rod in half! (while power shifting of course)I had to drive the car about 5 miles in 2nd gear on 50mph roads.. Haha. (maybe we should call out a recal on the JB shiftlinkage?)
