I'm getting rid of the s/c and going turbo. My motor just got pulled today and is going to the machine shop tomorrow so I can get a measurement on the bore so I can order my wiseco pistons. You out in Rawdon near truro? I go through the rawdon hills everytime I go home.

I am just waiting for my parts to come in from TTR to send to Armstrongs to get built. I'm hoping in the next week I will have a package containing: bronze valve guides, cometic head gasket, melling oil pump, gasket set, eagle rods, 9:1 wiseco pistons, SS racing valves. My HO manifold and secret cams arrived and am just waiting on my phenolic adapter and intercooler. All I have left to order is the turbo, bov, wastegate, exhaust/charge pipes. Danny at JD racing is making me a custom turbo manifold. I am getting soooo excited for summer to come. It should be a good year at the 1/4 mile.

Doing some cancer removal to my 89' GT before it becomes terminal, rear inner rocker panel, rocker support,and lower quarter repair panels.The blue tape is there for a reference to where my pinch weld line will be, I leave some extra metal on the bottom then trim once all the fabrication and welding is done.


Here is the panel I fabd where the car is jacked, the excess will be bent up around weld line like original.planning on welding all the square and oval openings in the frame pieces solid, seal all the seams and make access holes to the frames through floor pan and spray the inside frame full of rust check.
I will be painting the entire rear frame,springs,drums,rear axle and all,can't drive till august so why not eh.


After 3M seam sealer applied


At the moment I am limited to using flux core instead of mig and it is'nt the best so I am waiting for some shielding gas, hopefully soon.

it dont look to bad, at least you taking you time and not throwing the car together like some people do

Ive also decided my sunfire is getting either a turbo or a V6 in winter 2011

The fuel and break lines are coming out all in one piece hopefully.
I am installing a new Garrett T3 and inter-cooler this summer and I have a T25 oil and water-cooled that only needs bearings and a seal to be fresh, it is a Garrett turbo also.
I know where there is a 91' 3.1L GT that is demolished but it only has 140'000km on the drivetrain so I am planning on experimenting turbocharging the 3.1L with the T25, then wait to find another solid Sunbird body and I will be ready to swap the V6 in. I want to keep my 89' gt turbo close as possible to original without swapping the 2.0 turbo engine which is lighter and more powerfull than the v6, with a map sensor bleed valve and a simple wastegate adjustment I was making close to 18 pounds of boost and the car could break the tires loose at 50kmh but it needs a larger fuel pump and a inter-cooler.
