    The Holset power is great, I just have too much blow-by to really find out how well this car runs yet.

    Looks super sharp, I like what you did with those side reflectors. Also - I've wanted a nice set of Enkei shogun wheels for years and years, nothing "within era" looks as good on an IROC R/T. I'd love to come down to MN and see it in person sometime.

    Winter 2013 Plans:
    Build a short block and replace the current tired SB (90psi avg compression and 30% leak)
    Cometic MLS Head Gasket
    1000cc Fuel Injectors
    Boost Button Flashable Computer and cord
    Tune for E85 (425 WHP is the power goal that I will be tuning for)
    OBX LSD for A523
    Relocate the A-Pillar gauges to the cluster.
    Replace the front struts and add front strut bar
    Polish the wheels and some engine parts.


    Planning to autocross the R/T at least once a month and some trips to the 1/4 Mile.

    Looking forward to the polished wheels, I've been meaning to do mine for eight years now. Lol

    I am going on 2 years so far, I just need to build up the motivation to do it, this will be a very time consuming project.

    Re: 92 IROC R/T Build Plans.

    Starting to get cabin fever here up in the Midwest so I started some projects I have meaning been meaning to do:
    Replace upper and lower inter cooler pipes with 2.5 Polished Aluminum Tubing and Silicone Couplers
    Just finished mocking up my 3" Cold Air Intake, places the air filter between my inter cooler and radiator.


    Picked up a Billet Fuel rail, Ordered all the fittings to install this.

    Working on my Machined Valley Cover and Strut Brace now.

    On the electronic side I picked up a remote start, security system, mostly just for key less entry.

    Few other projects in the works, I just need it to warm up to above freezing so I can actually get some work done.

    Messing around with some spare parts I have, starting to like the look of the stock intake there on top. hides the Holset and large downpipe nicely. Really gives it a stock "sleeper" look.

    Test area on my wheel, had to go down to 120 grit to get the cast surface flat.

    Spent a little more time in the garage last night and finished final assembly on the fuel system.

    Swapped some of the fasteners to stainless steel also.

    "Hot-Wired" the fuel pump, now I will have a single 10 Gauge wire going from the battery to feed the fuel pump, should help with the voltage drops.

    92 IROC R/T Build Plans.



    Decided to try plasti dip on the wheels, ran out of patience to polish them this year. Temporary idea, but I'm liking it.
