So I acquired a new forged BPD from an Escort GT(-R). I'll salvage what I can for the GTR build (motor, flywheel, ECU, fuel rail, intake mani, ebc, resistor pack, sensors & gauges, remote oil cooler) and sell the rest to help fund this project.
The new heart, needs a Mazda cover, and a Mazdaspeed cap (the original one flew off the car after I killed my buddy's freshly $18k built STI, close call!)
New I/C arrived, pretty good steal for $100 shipped. 24" x 12" x 3" aluminum core with 2.5" end tanks.
Test fit of one of my couplings, Fits properly, I'll have tighten those t-bolt clamps a lot to handle the amount of boost that'll be running through...
Some new spark plugs and a new gapping tool.
Most of my time has been spent working and stripping both cars. School's starting up and I'm out of a job so there's going to be a small hiccup in parts acquisition, but the project shall always move forward
