Welds are a bit less than ideal. New welder, first job for it. Laying on a freezing garage floor welding right above me. I can weld alot better than what you see in the right conditions.

I thought maybe he was talking about the factory welds on the tips which look to be tigged stainless. Your welds appear to be from a low amp flux core unit, am I right? Not trying to hate, we all start somewhere.

Those ridiculous things WORKED damn well. But they are gone, as they are no longer needed.

I'll be closer soon. When I get those bumpers re-painted to match the new hood paint.

Sorry guys, I wasn't clear. I was talking about dill'* car. I love the blue on it. Your car is very functional though will. I have to ask you though, why aren't you faster with all of your mods and small pulley size?

i'll assume you talking to me :P

I'm not faster due to a nagging problem that keeps me from having the small pully on right now and cause'* the car to run to hot. that and my p/p LIM is more of just a P/_ LIM (polished only, no porting)

And if you're talking to me, try to remember that I started on a car with 205 stock HP of the 1993 vintage, and took it here:

http://www.rogue-cavern.net/fwdquarter.html


Where no other Series 1 lives other than one that ran Nitrous to get on the list. The Zilla is also one of only 5 cars on this Forum (4 active drivers) capable of 1.9 Sixty-foots. Take a close look at my sig. That'* where 2008 will have me. And actually, it should be quite easy this time.

There'* also a big difference between fast and quick. Quick is in the link above. Fast is top end. I own that record for the S1 as well.

Grant, I only stepped down to a 2.3" pulley for the time you see in my sig. Not my 2.2" or 2.0". That 2.3" is the equivalent of a 3.2" on an M90. My goal all along wasn't to make a statement, but rather to show the Series 1 owners that they CAN, and here'* how. Which is why I've documented everything I've done to this car. Come west. I'll show you the definition of torque sometime. This car tends to scare passengers badly off the line. Most that know it from this forum and have driven it, won't even give it full throttle off the line. The reason being that the torque from a S1 is delivered and peaks at a much lower RPM, making it a real beast to control.

That is all you have to say. I was comparing M90 pulley sizes to yours and scratching my head. Sounds like you just decided to take on more of a challenge by going with an S1. I applaud your effort and engineering.
