UPDATES ON UPDATES
Welcome to another installment of Stay Crushing!
Okay, so, a few things have switched around lately. One of the main things that happened this past month is the loss of my beloved “Lemon Party” MR2. After my search to find a clean Type S K-series Honda engine fell flat, I considered selling the car and picking something else up. Turns out my friend Colin, one of the mad scientists and owner at Big Country Labs - makers of some of the sickest wings on the market - has been obsessing over the MR2 for a while now. He just had to have it, so now he has his own personal lemon party. He plans on making it even crazier than what I had planned for it, so I can't wait to see what he comes up with.
That being said, I'd need a daily while my FR-S is under the knife, so I picked up another two-door sportscar: a 350Z. This Z was owned by a fellow Low N Slow crew member, so yes, it came pre-built. The previous owner had the 350Z fitment game on lock, and for the last eight or nine years his car has had many setups. From its metal widebody and full JL Audio system, to its diamondstitched interior and Weds wheels, everywhere I go in this thing, it stops people dead in their tracks. I plan on cleaning it up a bit since it has some years and miles on it, and above all, give it some good lovin'.
Now for the FR-S! My Pandem kit (technically Rocket Bunny V3) will have already arrived by the time this is published and you're reading this. Stay tuned for the updates to come as we get everything together. This kit is wider and even more aggressive than the first two, so get hyped!
As I write this, the FR-S is at MotoIQ for a full motor build! A widebody FR-S with a built motor? What?! Within the first day, they've already pulled the motor out and stripped it down to just the long block, intake manifold, harness, and ECU. I will be running JE 10.5:1 stock bore pistons, BC rods, Supertech valvetrain, and a Deatschwerks fuel system. The car is going to make some nasty power - about 500 horses worth if all goes according to plan! I am beyond excited for all the madness that is about to take place with the car.
I have so much more happening with the FR-S to come, but I can't spill it all now. I've got to make sure I've got enough content every month after all! Stay tuned for some super exciting updates!
