Re: 86' s15 ext cab v8 corner carver, 56k beware

nothing since the last time ive posted. it hasnt been forgotten, i just havnt had the time. i have enough parts to get the drive line basically running, i just need time! all you guys with your dam brake parts, and ive had a few jobs for the miata people to do too. when im not spending my free time machining, ive been getting the miata ready for the season which is now upon us. i should be making some headway over the next few months... but then again, i plan on turboing the miata this summer too.

i have all the material to make or remake the motor mounts, then i need to make a trans crossmember, i already ahve the tubing and plate for that as well. shorten driveshaft, run plumbing and wiring and it should move under its own power.

Yeah, she can drive a manual. My buddy is selling a 96 M edition. I can probably get it for 2k or a little less. It needs brakes and tires.

because you guys asked so nicely











now a bell housing bolt hits the tunnel. the exhaust seems to fit "better". i need to pull the engine to make some dents, and see where its at. i might end up ditching the 3 bolt flanges for vbands.

perfect. 94-97 was the best for the NAs, and would be my choice. that is a very decent price as well. tires are cheap for these cars.

Sweet. I'll be sure to post some pics if I snag it up. Probably won't be until the snow kicks rocks.

If I could go back, I would defiantly change out the flanges for V-Bands. That little extra room pays off + no collector leaks!
