Nobody bought my cefiro shell so I got bored and decided to assemble it.

Here is as it arrived in its $500 glory.

A quick rail straighten was required, ala winch.

Then some slight panel beating got me to here.

And here it is nesting with the other cef.

Now it's being assembled out of shed parts and donations but putting approximate values on them from prior purchases, I've come to this list:

Dirty 30 $100

VLT Manifold, injectors, computer $300

Ebay spec T3/T4 second hand $150

Dirty 30 box $100

This leaves me at $1150 and needing very little.

Original plan was just a budget drift/circuit nugget but after doing some sums I think I'm in with a shot.

So this week was a bit hectic with a lot of sleepless nights.

A lot of ghetto work to get it to spec without spending money.

https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn2/971634_10151973430868356_1564969006_n.jpg

https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/1011191_10151973171853356_469561495_n.jpg

Had to spend $80 to get a radiator to fit, from an S13 so its held in with bits of carpet to get it to sit correctly.

https://fbcdn-sphotos-a-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn2/8491_10151966908313356_484173788_n.jpg

Scavenged some lights by trading the window regs and glass from the cef.

https://fbcdn-sphotos-g-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/1012128_295001910637228_864465259_n.jpg

Strapped in the dirty vl motor and made cooler piping out of leftovers and offcuts.

https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/944720_10151976650413356_988907250_n.jpg

Then discovered the bonnet doesn't clear the 30 or the ghetto piping (front bar off other cef because it was a haggard bog construction).

https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-frc3/988505_10151976651563356_687959045_n.jpg

Nek minnut.

All wired up and it runs, still off the shitty stock cef pump. Have an unknown walbro I was given to see if it'll work. Then just add seat and a steering wheel and skid pics.


Total money spent so far: $580

Approximate money including guestimations: $1230

Some last minute scrap work tomorrow and I'll probably maybe have a car almost.

Lol that's so ghetto, awesome. Doesn't even matter if you prang it, just straighten up and go again or sell to drift tragic for profit :D

You're pretty much a faggot if you don't run that pipe.

This is terrible.

I highly approve.

Skompa

Already begun cutting the sill to fit the pipe. Otherwise its the widest point of the car and it won't fit on the trailer. Also I only had two 90s in the scrap pile and no good straight bits that weren't a 5 inch truck stack.

Socket for a gear knob. Shifter held in by cable ties. Ghetto level over 9000.

If you can somehow drive with a Spanner for a steering wheel, I think you will take the ghetto crown (A paper crown from a christmas cracker).

It lives! Getting the roll cage and exhaust finished next week. Also a quick street tune to set the timing as its a bit retarded at the moment.

There was a 6'5" Russian with a hammer. I felt it was better to let him do whatever he wanted to the bonnet than argue.

Was thinking about the most important thing today, how to paint the car. Was looking at some old planes like spitfires and mustangs for inspiration.

Here is what ms paint happened:

Quick test run, snapped input shaft. Got a line on a 30 box with blown reverse for some beer but if anyone has anything in vic I'd appreciate a hook up :P

Replaced the box and took it to haunted hills for a shake down/test run. Oil pump let go and killed the turbo and bottom end. 13s for 1300 chances are over but I guess this means I have to do it semi properly. Or at least less shit.

Skompa
30-06-13, 02:07 PM
Also attempted driveway skid means it doesn't start anymore.

Just get a wrecker motor for $150... my last RB30 cost I think $175 and did 50,000ks before it snapped a timing belt and had its plugs changed for the first time.

yeah, that's not a collapsed lifter. that's a piston pin/big end for sure.

Skompa
19-07-13, 10:10 PM
Yeah its proper broken. Found another Rb30 in my backyard so I'm putting that in it for now, mate has a free turbo for me as well.

Still good for 13s for $1300 right? :P

Skompa
19-07-13, 10:12 PM
New motor even has power steering so that's a plus.

I give it 2 passes before it goes bang.

I swapped an $80 RB20 for the rolling shell back off my housemate. As well as some odds and ends. Suddenly it owes me fuck all and I care less about it.
