Build Day 3 and 4

Day 3 and 4 of the build Started on Friday by pulling the front clip off the car and pulling the motor. Today we finally got to put in the beautiful SPL Solid bushings on the front half of the car and we pulled the rear diff to mock up the new Quaiffe diff. And right now we are tearing the engine apart. If anyone is wondering why the random order of the build its because we are waiting on a good amount of part on backorder so we are doing what we can. Here some pics from the past two days.

Build Day 2

Build Day 1

Its finally 2011 and that means its time to start building at the SOHO Motorsports shop! We are still waiting on a few critical pieces and since I had a racers banquet to attend that afternoon we did a few things to get the build started. We first stripped all of the seat and trunk and ended up taking nearly 200lbs off the car (before the new seats). Then we installed the new carbon fiber trunk and saved a pretty good amount of weight on that as well. Then while the guys from Soho where doing that I took the original intake manifold / plenum with Motordyne spacer and mrev2 setup off the car. We will most likely be putting this on another one of our street Z's. Then we finished the short day off with installing the absolutely beautiful Cosworth intake manifold and we mocked up the APR GTC 300 rear spoiler, which mounts very close to flush to the edge of the trunk so we may need to make some sort of bracket on the inside of the trunk. Here are a few preview pics and you can find the rest of the photos for the build on flickr or on facebook.

Be sure to check in next weekend and on the forums and facebook for regular updates on the build!
