Update Time!

I left off with an open question, "What LS will i be going with?"
I spent a week weighing the pros and cons along with the long term and short term advantages and disadvantages of alot of the LS series engines, and then I got a tip from a buddy that there was a wrecked C6 Z06 for sale at a local wrecker....hmmmm

So yeah, I wanted a motor that I could have reliable 500hp without doing a cam, heads, or whatever. Along with the ability to upgrade and get mad amounts of more power easily as I progress through the sport of drifting over the next few years. Basically I just want to reduce the amount of headaches I get every week, because truly, drifting sucks...and I have no idea whats wrong with me to have the dire need to keep doing it.

So i took a MAJOR chunk out of my savings and took a chance on buying this Corvette in hopes to partout the car and basically get the LS7 for the price of an SR swap...or better yet free if i make my money back!

Image
Image

SO first things first, I tore the engine down to this...which took like 15 mins, I love how easy these motors are to work on.

Image

And took it to the machine shop to get inspected because the corvette was hit HARD! Hence the reason I even considered getting the whole car was because it was fairly cheap for what it was.

Image


Topeka Rd. 2

So by now in this build thread you should realize that I really enjoy drifting, no matter what my situation is with my track car I always find a way to drive local events. So May 25th, I went out to KCDrifts event at Heartland Park Topeka just to drift with the bros.

Image
Image

I really enjoy playing with walls, but on one run I came in a tad offline and just tapped the wall! NFG.

Image

I looked at the damage on the bumper and went back out, kept at it, even borrowed a pair of tires to drive even more. lol

Image


Anyways back to the weekday grind, I got my car all ready for the new drivetrain.

Image


Pulled my front calipers, stripped them and repainted them.

Image

I also got my rear calipers painted up along with the rotors to keep them from rusting once on the car..

Image

Installed my rear calipers, cant wait to lock these up on track!!!!!

Image

Since the Corvettes T56 is a rear mounted transaxle I had to get a normal t56 to use with the LS7. I got a GTO t56 I picked one up for pretty cheap but when I got it came with no bellhousing or shifter......I was kinda ticked off but I got all that sorted and new stuff on the way :(

Image

The next day I got a call from my machine shop saying that I needed to come in and look at something that might halt my build.
Turns out the Corvette was wrecked so hard that it bent the crank snout on the LS7.

Image

At that point I had everything ordered to install my LS swap, the SR partout pretty much paid for most of the swap stuff, but I was super bummed that now I had to put in a new crank into the LS7 and all the machine shop labor and to think the Corvette only had 5732 miles on it!

So I decided that I was gonna go drifting that following weekend, just to get my mind off my bad luck.

St. Louis:

I mounted up some fresh rubber:

Image

Stuffed my car with tires, and headed out to STL.

Image

I crashed at my buddy Steves house and then headed out in the morning to Gateway Motorsports Park.

Image

The parking lot event was super RAD, the blacktop was fresh so it was super slick and wasted no tire yet still let you make good smoke. Even the LS dudes didnt even go through a pair of tires all day.

Image
Image
Image

Heres a video of one of my runs, nothing special. Still searching for video of my tandem runs, Ill post that up when i find some.



It was a super fun weekend with the STL bros, STL is seriously one of the best drift scenes ive ever been around, I should just move there.

Tuesday I went back to the shop and among other things I pulled my Fortune Auto Coils and sent them off to FA to get rebuilt! Ive never had issues with them but theyre two years old and I have the break in the season that I figured why not. Ive been super pumped all season to have Fortune Auto apart of my program and stoked about being able to tweak them to match my new drivetrain.

Image

Last update I promised an announcement, so what better time then now to announce my new sponsorship for the 2013 season and future seasons to come! Fueled Racing, has seriously helped me out with getting everything I need to make my LS7 a drop in engine swap. Im stoked to have them on board and the opportunity to run their products on my car! More details on my swap kit will be on the next update, but I will be retaining the LS7's dry sump setup!

[url="https://fueledracing.com/"]https://fueledracing.com/[/url]

Image


So thats about it for now, my next update should have the following:
-(Kinda) Built LS7
-Awesome Parts from Fueled Racing and Import Image Racing!
-Other Cool Drifty Stuff.

Thanks, Stay Tuned!

Update Time!

So I left off with me being home from STL, i had pretty much everything for my swap on the from Import Image Racing and Fueled Racing, and the motor was at the machine shop.

One of the first things to arrive were my DSS Axles, i figured Ive had enough time on the sidelines so a broken axle wouldnt be an option, Now just gotta stock up on diffs...

Image

So at round 1 of MDU I picked up a Smashed USA Hood for my S14 because my car needed more aggressive-ness.

Got it on, scuffed it, and cut holes for my aero catch pins:

Image

Got Paint for it:

Image

Painted it along with my bumper and a buddys rocket bunny wing.

Image

Then I had a homie come down and teach me how to cut and buff, and that made this hood LOOK GOOD!

Image


I sent off my spare S14 KA harnesses and LS7 harness to Jordan Innovations to get modified into a plug and play harness with some extras!

Image

I got my GTO Bellhousing and Shifter:

Image

I was stockpiling parts in my room:

Image

I threw my axles on the car:

Image


So probably the second biggest thing that happen these past couple weeks was that I got rid of my 350z...

Image

I traded it for this 1JZ S13 Hatch with some goodies and some cash ontop:

Image
Image

Came with Full OEM Type X kit and tails in the mail:
Image

R32 F/R brakes and these Evo Recaros:
Image

And bought this truck to tow my S14 across the country with the cash ontop...

Image

So the S13 was running amazing and then it wasnt....yeah so first thing I did with it was...
Rip its heart out.... :(

Image

I spent like two hours and buffed the paint on it, if it didnt have dings all over, it would look like a million bucks

Image
Image

Heres where thats at right now slowly getting in parts for it and finding time to work on it

Image


Anyways back to the S14.

After weeks of setbacks and headaches, I got my motor back.
I threw an ACT Prolite and HD clutch on it, Much thanks to ACT for their support this year.

Image

The LS7 ended up getting a new Eagle forged crank, Clevite coated bearings, and ARP everything.
Its ready to PARTY!

First thing I did once I got it back was my signature sunrise wrinkle red valve covers, takes 7 coats with three different spray cans, but it looks DOPE!

Image
Image

I had an all night pre event Jam sesh with my Homie Phil Dark who had to do a headgasket so he could drive the next day. My shops always open for my homies who need to use it. And I worked on getting my LS in the 14.

Image

SO YEAH, BOOOOOOM!

Image

Got the motor in, went to a kcdrift event in topeka, sadly without a car but got to drive like 8 different cars there. Thanks again to those dudes who let me drive their whips.

Came back sunday and worked alittle:
Put in my gnarly Fueled racing alum. driveshaft:

Image
Image

Heres where I ended Monday night, I got most of the front suspension back on as well as some other stuff.

Image

Pulled my stock fuel lines to run my SS Fueled Racing lines:

Image

I got my Fueled Racing headers in and some PS lines:

Image

I bought a 2"x50' roll of Heat wrap and that ended up only being enough for one header...so that ended my thursday night early:

Image

So today I bought all my fittings, 20' of line, and more heat wrap.

Image

I hit a speedbump in the build, I need to weld on my -12 fittings onto my dry sump tank to run my oil lines, but that cant be done until sunday, and Im waiting on steering rack bushing because my PBM, bushings dont clear my dry sump pan, and im waiting on my brake lines to finish up all 4 corners. SO this weekend will be pretty easy...yet aggrevating because this build is taking super long and MDU round 2 is 2 WEEKS AWAY...

Heres the current status of the 14:

Image


In other news, I have sold the Z06 shell that I bought for the LS7:

Image

Parting cars out is how I built this car since day 1, so Its not really a surprise that i have made over 3/4s of my money back from the corvette and still have a super low mileage Z06 Transaxle and torque tube for sale.
Basically without selling my this transaxle I got a built LS7 and T56 for the same price as a LS2 pullout goes for on ebay, and much less once the trans sells.

Im glad I went this route, and I just hope I can get back to driving events and Im gonna hit events like crazy once this cars reliable. IM STOKED.

ETA on finishing this car is the end of next week, which will give me about a week to break it in and get a tune, I really hope I can pull it off to be able to drive with all my MDU bros!

STAY TUNED!!!

The 1J car is going to be a lot of fun. Maybe a bit nose heavy but nothing some stiffer front springs can't fix. Ditch the big cast dildo intake pipe and get piping made up to go directly to the turbo. Stock BOV is garbage. Block it off in the meantime. The turbo is tough and does just fine BOVless. Ditch the secondary butterfly on the throttle body when doing piping. And take it easy on the valve covers. The bolt hole tabs are pretty weak and prone to cracking. And if you got oily spark plugs, the rocker cover gaskets are leaking into the spark plug valley.

It was a fun engine in the super heavy JZX100 so its going to feel awesome in a light tight S13. Holler if you need any parts for it or any thing. Toyota around the corner and YAJ is always open.

Update Time!

So this update will be alittle out of order, first off my S14:

I planned on having it done the the weekend before the week of MDU round 2.

I wrapped the other header and got those on

Image
Image

Installed my new Aeromotive Stealth Fuel Pump

Image

I ran my new -6 fuel line and -12 Dry Sump oil lines

Image

I got -12 fittings welded onto my dry sump tank and then I painted the tank

Image

I did some decorating on the tank and made some brackets to install it, HEHEHE!

Image

I figured out my intake setup, vibrant coupler/tubing and AEM filter

Image

So then I find out that my LS7 didnt have its necessary MAF, So got one along with one of those bungs off ebay and had my welder buddy put it on

Image
Image
Image

Lastly I put on new SS brake lines all around.

Image

So even though I busted ass to get what I needed to get done on my 14 to make MDU round 2, I was forced to miss it because I was and still am waiting on my converted harness. So my cars sitting on the lift like this ---v until I get my harness. Then Its going to MCP in STL for a ypipe and 4" ypipe back exhaust and a tune.

Image


MDU Round 2, St. Louis:

So Im not one to miss a localish event and even more so a proam event, even if I dont have a car.

I got to STL friday night to hang with the bros at Midnight Madness, and a good buddy of mine, James Blair, offered to lend me his car for MDU on saturday.
His car was built well and Ive driven his car once before at a Kansas event so who am I to decline such a generous offer. :)

Image

We ended sharing his car at the event, Ive driven the Gateway roadcourse once before so I didnt need much practice just enough to get used to the car.
I got about 9-10 runs in before qualifying and by the 9th or 10th lap I had finally gotten the run down.

His car was originally a road race car so the boost didnt hit till mid 4k and Ive been used to 3k max on my S14 last season so it was definietly a tricky car to drive and took me alittle bit to get used to and adjust.
But I was able to put down a solid run and ended up qualifying 10th.

Lined up for the top 16 battle:

Image

I was up against Josh Collins, I dont have any pictures of our battle but heres a pic of his car during practice.

Image

Anyways, I ended taking the win, I really started to get the line down and put down some sweet follow and lead runs, I think he ended up blowing out his tranny on my lead run, not sure what happened there but it was a fun battle!

Top 8 battle was with one of my good friends Alex Ledbetter, his car is pushing about 500hp and the 13 I was in was maybe 280ish.
No excuses, The battle was RAD! I definitely held my own and was able to keep up fairly well in my follow run and gain some distance after initiation on my lead run.
But he had more angle and WAY more smoke, and I wasnt as close to him as he was on me and he got the win.

Image

Heres a link to my lead, I literally went all out, I had a smile on my face the rest of the day. I had a great time like always.

[url="https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=3200675873615&l=8266387470322755788"]https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=3200675873615&l=8266387470322755788[/url]

I stayed in STL for a couple days and hung out, mostly because I had nothing to do on my cars because I was waiting on parts for both....

So back on the S13 last Tuesday: (once again, its alittle out of order)

I got another set of wheels from Cosmis Racing, Probably one of my favorite wheels ever, Im super glad theyre helping me out this year and hopefully years to come:

Image

I installed my 5lug conversion and some adj. S14 rucas and toe arms and made my own lock out kit:

Image
Image

I threw one of my wheels on to roll the fenders.

Image

I literally maxed out my rucas and rolled to fit. The less amount of neg camber the better!

AND BOOM!

Image
Image

Then I installed one of these things:

Image

I prepped my OEM Type X aero for paint

Image

And BOOM!

Image

I threw on my spare Z32 front brakes

Image

I installed all the aero and test fitted my front wheels

Image

I painted my 1jz's valve covers my signature sunrise wrinkle red.

Image

And of course painted my inlet pipe and intake maniold wrinkle black

Image

ACT ON EVERYTHING!

Image

that night BOOM, in:

Image

but something I overlooked to mention, the reason I pulled the 1j in the first place was because it developed a knock the first day I got the car...so the previous owner did help me buy a new motor from tiger japanese and thats whats in the car now.

The oil pan on both motors were super dented, so the part I was waiting on and made this car miss MDU was the new oil pan

Image

I also got a skid plate to protect it since it does sit below the crossmember.

Image

Anyways I got the car all ready to go:

Image

Filled with fluids, bleed them, etc..

Image

Then primed it, and turned it on and.......KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK KNOCK....FUUUUUUUUU

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Anyways, Im not gonna go into detail about the engine that was sent to me already trashed, Im currently working out a claim and hopefully gonna figure something out to get another motor from Tiger, or some money and rebuild it, either it run one day soon.

I was devastated that I put in so much work into this car and then have a motor I trusted to work great, not work great...But shit happens, Im used to it by now and im over being sad and worried. Focus is now on the S14, which since I went through EVERYTHING on that new swap and the car, it should run forever and IM STOKED.

In other news I got a shipment of 123s from achilles, I love these tires.

Image

Stay Tuned!

It seems like anytime I ever hear of Tiger it's always because someone got a pile of shit from them.

Good luck with that mess man, it sucks, at least it looks sexy as fuck.

Update Time!

So where I left off, I got some 123s from Achilles so I mounted up a new pair for my fronts.

Image

The S13 was literally not worked on in the past 3-4 weeks, it just sat in the shop looking pretty.

Image
Image

The S14 was really close to being done, I was literally waiting for my conversion harness to come in so I can go have my exhaust made, and tune it..

Image

But I did have little things like put some fluid in the tranny, etc...

Image

So I finally get my harness from Jordan Innovations after 7ish weeks, He told me 2 but whatever, I understand... But so yeah, I loaded up my car and left for Mid Coast Performance in St Louis.

Image
Image

Image

So I didnt have time to install my converted harness before I had to leave for MCP so I just had MCP install it...but turns out the harness was a pile of garbage... There were dead wires left in the loom, there were live wires just cut and left open next to other live wires, there was a ground not even soldered, just knotted and left unwrapped. The alternator wiring that he thought he cut, was actually the main power for the PCM... I could go on and on and on with unprofessional wiring that was done on my harness but im gonna move on to what happened when It was installed.

Image

It was hooked up, nothing got power, turns out the ecu was not getting power, so they made a power harness. After that we found that something was truly wrong with the harness because the key was off, and all the GROUNDS were getting 6 volts and the injectors were getting 12 volts on their positive wire. So the harness came out and had to be torn open and gone through.

Image

After 16 hours (2 days) of trying to make that harness work, it was not gonna be fixable nor cost effective since I was having a very good shop take time out of their high dollar builds to fix a cheap harness, it was a complete waste of my time and money.

Image

In the end I had to order an awesome PSI harness but had to wait a week for it to arrive just to start my car.

Don't get me wrong, Jordan innovations would have gladly tried to fix it if I mailed it back, but I didn't have another 7 weeks to wait to get it and hope it works. !'d imagine if you wait 7 weeks for something, that it should work as promised, am I right??

So I went back to Kansas City for a couple days while the harness was on its way to receive a tire shipment and brought some my tires and tools back so that I can potentially make MDU Round 3 in Detroit.

Image
Image

Soon as I got back the harness was there and Kurt and Brad at MCP were jamming on getting it in and hopefully starting the car later that day.

Image

So we got the car to start, It seemed to run really well and it fired right up but...we noticed that the crank pulley was wobbling / \ / \ / \ /

So we checked runout on the crank pulley, it was too high, so we pulled it off and ordered an oem one since the runout on the crank was very minimal, and nowhere near enough to cause a wobble.

Image

We got the new pulley the next day and installed it hoping it would that issue...it didnt. I pulled off the timing cover and checked everything and nothing was adding up, It had to be the crank was bent...

Image

So I called my machine shop who built my engine and told them the whole story, and they said, bring it to us, we will fix it. I packed up and headed back to KC to pull my engine.

I was really bummed out, I thought my season was over, I literally listened to slow jams the whole drive home.

Image

So I pulled the whole drivetrain in literally 2 hours on a sunday, My Fueled Racing swap kit makes everything line up and bolt right on like it was an SR..and we all know how many times ive pulled an sr...fml

Image

I take the engine to them on monday morning ~11am

Image

Then I get a call around 1pm that same day, "Hey Rolando, So we found the issue with the engine"

Turns out the timing/oil pump gear was bent from the wreck and we reused it. Since the crank pulley seats on that gear, it would cause the crank pulley to wobble like it did. So I ordered a new gear and a new oil pump just incase.

I had the motor back in my hands by 4pm Tuesday....

Image

I replaced a few parts that I overlooked when I originally installed it just incase as well.

Image

So I got back to my shop, with my new parts and the engine ready to go around 5pm. I had so much motivation to get it done that by 7pm the engine/tranny/driveshaft was back in the car.

Image

And by midnight It was done and I left to get tuned at MCP the very next morning.

So It was a crazy few days but It was finally back at MCP and on the dyno.

Image

After a good 8-10 pulls overall that tune was done and it made 470hp and 409tq on the "heartbreaker" mustang dyno, which supposdly reads 8% less than a standard dynojet or whatever.

Heres a video of one of the pulls!

8C4EE34D-714B-453C-848A-EDA3C669D62F-554-000000BABD5B3C2C_zps4206f6c4.mp4 Video by JDM_Tuner | Photobucket

And heres a video of the celebration donuts I did!

5E7C094A-1253-4D7A-B81E-9EB8CC22EAEB-554-000000BC9585E7E0_zps9455374d.mp4 Video by JDM_Tuner | Photobucket

But yeah the car is now running great, I went out driving with my STL bros and its pretty much the most awesome car I have ever driven. Its loud, its super fast, and it pulls in any gear like crazy.

Image
Image
Image

I want to thank my sponsors that helped me do this swap:
Import Image Racing - ImportImageRacing | Discount Performance Parts | Subaru, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Mazda Import Image Racing
Fueled Racing - Fueled Racing
Advanced Clutch Technology - Advanced Clutch Technology // Performance Clutch Kits, Clutches, and Flywheels

I also want to thank Mid Coast Performance, they do really awesome work and really want to build the best cars out there, If youre anywhere near them, I would hit them up for all your racecar needs.
[url="https://www.facebook.com/MidCoastPerformance"]https://www.facebook.com/MidCoastPerformance[/url]

Its been a super rough season for me, Ive been in the lowest of lows and Im soon to hit the highest of highs as soon as I get back to driving events. But moral of the story is dont give up. I love what I do, I give my all and sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnt. But thats just the ride, and I enjoy every minute of it.

Thanks for reading, stay tuned!

lol at that engine harness. Did you light him up on Zilvia? Can't imagine his response. That is pretty unacceptable.

And that oil tank is deceiving. In this pic it looks small:
Image

but this pic gives you a good scope of its size:
Image

I bet those were the best doughnuts ever. Congrats dude!

Car looks good dude, doing great things for Kansas/Midwest.

Since you're sponsored do you have good prices for the tires to the public?

Great build thread! I wish I wasn't such a faggot and hated on everybody so much so I could have a somewhat cool car.

So sorry about your bad luck this year. At least you're out making things happen! Always an interesting read. Your cars are off the chain!

So I see i didnt post the last few updates of last season, theyre here if you wanna see what happened:

http://zilvia.net/f/builds-builds-only/429037-jdm_tuner-s-build-thread-past-present-future-12.html

This is what I say to 2013. Middle Fingers in the Air.

I learned a lot this past season. I grew up and I don't regret all the shit I went through.
What really made it all not as shitty was i only made 2 of 4 MDU events and still managed to be the highest placing rookie and took home rookie of the year.

For the 2014 season, Im taking what I did wrong last season and doing it right.
My program is pretty much staying the same, same sponsors with the addition of a couple new ones, a revised version of my S14 and an additional 350z "backup car" so I can make every event I want to. I also decided to go to KU school of engineering in the fall, so this year ill be going for broke...but more going broke haha.

I wish I could type up the past three months after the final kansas event for a big awesome update but Id be up for days typing and uploading pics. and most of you know, or follow on IG.

I plan on doing alot of this:

In the S14 thatll look like this:

Image

and in a new 350z that currently looks like this:

Image

Basically just trying to do this:

Once again thanks for reading my thread, I hope you enjoyed it as I probably wont be updating it again, at least for a long time.

Saw you got in to KU on IG. Congrats man! Best investment you'll make! Buckle down and keep after it. College ain't no joke but so totally worth it when you're done. Keep it up man and looking forward to 2014.
