      Installed 1.5" body lift on the cummins tj I can now fit AC lines around the turbine housing



      Had I not done this I would have had to modified the firewall and evaporator connections, I also now have more room for the compressor. Just need to modify the reciever dryer and figure out lines.


      Also installed the new head unit and speakers, mocked up where I want to put the boost/egt gauge and sirius module (although that is back burner for now). And I removed all the roll bar padding to clean and paint it.. now done and reinstalled.

      Started installing a bunch of sound deadening to try and make it more pleasant on the highway since I want to use it for camping and long trips.

      mk2 vr6 swap is up for sale (need this gone)
      80 caddy also probably up for sale (will only go for right monies)

      Pm me about either if interested.

      I was there. I am friends with Chris W., we went to Chick-fil-a that one time.

      Any update on your R32? I need to get my 90 day done and get my transmission looked at. I had issues at the dragon; I think my clutch got too hot.

      Still working on it. Looks as if the damage has gone beyond the flywheel to the engine. Rough quote without an engine teardown is $9k. Not sure if that includes transmission damage as well.

      I'm not ****ing happy.

      how the hell did the flywheel do $9k damage to the engine?
      I have to laugh when someone calls me an a*****e. I've been called far worse than that.

      mod friendly to an extent at our dealer...as slow as we have been we arent looking to turn away work on a car just because you have lowered it...lol...but if you go thrashing around and it tears something up other that just a part failing, JE wont put their neck on the line and pay for your repairs...haha...im one for fighting for a customer sake when it comes to a bad design and crappy made parts, but not if you wanna take your car and beat on it past what its capable of and want someone else to foot the bill...and its easy to tell the difference...buying a stock car and beating the crap out of it isnt a smart idea...if its an r32, building a car to race/track/beat on is alot cheaper and more capable of not tearing stuff up than on a stock drivetrain...lol...just my .02..i dont know what mods you have but if it were me, i wouldnt be paying that much for a car and treating it like a racecar and not expect to have to fix some stuff....spend 15k on building a track car, 5k on a daily, and still have 15k in the bank over a stock r32....

      I guess some of the details are missing. but a cracked flywheel doesn't immediately cause the engine to "blow" Are you saying that it damaged the crank or something? Not looking to argue, just curious more then anything...

      Yes that was the beginning of the hell. We had no idea what happened and she tried to drive it thinking it was a fueling issue, boom went the motor.
