Holy. 

There is another guy in Calgary named Jake with a white LS Sylvia.  But no Rocket Bunny. 

Looks real nice man.  Excited to see progress!



Why didn't you do this properly though and just smash holes in the interior for the cage?

haha just got the motor a few weeks ago cant wait to get it in the car but will probably be a bit, doing full maintenance on the motor and still need funds for the trans

OHHH YES! LS all the things!

Only logical thing to do how can you go wrong with LS haha so much power relatively cheap and that sound :P

Interesting build. I'll keep coming back for updates.

Two important questions for you:
1. Are you keeping the toy cage or are you putting a real one in? (there's no bracing on the drivers door)
2. Are you changing your username?

Probably just having the rear part of the cusco cage with nothing in the front, as the rear part is welded to the chassis already. not going to go for a full cage no point will be mostly a street car.
Name might change dont have anything to change it to yet...

Uggghhhh so nice!

I have been wanting to get back into an S13 for so long and seeing this makes me want to work towards it even more.

I may have missed it in the previous posts but what are your plans for the car? Just a crazy, built street car or are you planning on drifting it or anything?

Plans for the car are just doing things ive never done, trying to learn as much as possible. Mostly going for street car at this point. Going for just clean look with Tucked Wiring/ simplify everything I can.Hopefully Something Close to this is the goal at least haha. After all the drivetrain is done planning on ditching the flares and going for a molded widebody...

Also ordered my new Cam today. Custom spec'd by Pat G. 222/228 .600 Lift 111 LSA+2. Cant wait to hear it.

Video of a Cam close to my specs couldn't find any with the exact same specs.

Super excited to hear and feel the gains of the cam, should at a bit of power and torque. Plus that sound worth it alone. I Keep snowballing things while the motor is out every upgrade leads to another well this is here too so i might as well... becoming costly lol

You can sleep in your car, but you can never drift/slip your house.

Mmmmm...those are my two favorite wheels, well Work S1R's anyways ha. You can usually find some nice VS KF's on eBay for a pretty good pricing. I imagine with those flares you'll be needing to re-lip them as well.

Yea they’ll be rebuilt with 6” lips in the rear and 5” in the front. Gunna try to stuff a 305/35 in the rear and a 265 in the front.
