I'm so far behind on updating this!

I got sponsored by EBC brakes! Im temporarily waiting on my rear yellowstuff pads, and have a full set of blue stuff pads being made in the UK which will be shipped to me next month. I have a custom cut set of BSD Rotors on the rear and off the shelf BSD rotors on the front. Im grateful to have the opportunity to review these and to give feedback on them when the time comes.

More so! I got a huge piece for my car today. A true OEM Mazdaspeed Spoiler!!!
Also some more posder coating and cerakoting came in. I don't know if I mentioned it, but kid icarus flew too close to the sun and detonated two pistons running a peak18.5psi on pump gas and 10.5:1 compression!
Oh snap... and a true 92 Cyclone steering wheel, and double fold center console lid! Thanks to twopedalwarrior for those piece. Which he surprised me with courtesy of another member from New Zealand.
Pics below of most everything...

I am in love with the look of this car!

Pushed it out of the garage to really get a good walk around with the spoiler mounted. Didnt even bother cleaning the car. I will be doing a blend and respray on it to the OEM brilliant black. There's not actually an engine in the car, so the front sits a tad higher than it should, but this collage really gives you a great feel of what I've managed to accomplish.

So much love for the guys at Boost Lab! Got hooked up with a deal on a Precision 5557 CEA turbo since my turbonetics wasn't rebuildable.

I'm in love with this motor!

Not a lot going on these days other than making moves with the car, preparing for a baby's arrival on monday, and just trying to hunker down to the best of my ability!

Protege Vbrace with gtspec lateral arm brace and CUSTOM AWR Racing adjustable lateral arms have been installed. I'll be getting some amazing stuff today and will post about it when I get the opportunity!

Pending deals with Vibrant Performance, Wiseco Pistons, and Cometic are well under way!

I've been slacking on updating on here and helping to manage the site! Ugh. More and more progress is being made. Got a Brand Ambassador Deal arranged with Vibrant Power, acquired a Carbon Fiber Trunk, painted the driverside fender as a temporary fix. Got the engine in, now stalled or awaiting a potential deal with an oil company 😀 and one more part from Vibrant.

Likely just in time to tear everything apart for some valvetrain and cam upgrades. 🤷‍♂️

Awesome, that car really is an inspiration. Good luck getting the parts, and the time!

Can't wait to see what mods are next.

Is that a carbon fiber trunk lid??? If so, where the hell did you get that???
A guy out of Seattle. I'll make a post when he's ready to actually start producing them. Yes it's carbon fiber and mine was the first prototype. It was meant for another enthusiast, but they needed to change a few things so I acquired it unfinished. I'm still working on it, but damn and I happy with it so far. This is fresh after adding gloss and some mild sanding before the gloss. I'll wet sand and then do the final trimming and add all the mounting hardware (which was all temporarily installed)
