Well I figure it's about time I start my build thread now that the build is almost complete. I'll
start off by saying this past year has been quite the year for my most expensive hobby lol
Last October my car was stolen and found used and abused. Now, over a year later after a
lot of waiting on everything and consistent problems, my car will once rise again bigger, faster
and stronger! Goals are 350-400hp daily tune and next year a dyno day to see what she can
really do! On to the details/pictures. All comments and questions welcome!

Was wondering what happened to the project. I know back in spring you were saying you might get the motor back from john soon or something. Glad to see it's still going. Cant wait to see what this beast does.

P.S. I forgot how sexy those rims look on that car, I remember helping put the back ksports in and those sexy things on.

Thanks guys. I hope I can get my wiring expert over here to either find the problem I'm having or just have him do the custom wire harness/tuck and install MS3/MS3x. The problem I'm having now is when the key is in the ON position the fuel pump turns on and stays on. When we pull the fuel pump relay the distributor starts sparking like I'm cranking it over. The ecu side wire harness is from a 93 mx6 v6 mtx from the junkyard (mine was hacked into 3 or 4 times). The fuse box side is from a 94 626 v6 mtx from junkyard. Before we swapped fuse box side the starter would turn over super slow and after a couple tries it would pop the main 100A fuse. Took out the alarm and it would turn over normal but inconsistently (first try would be fast, after that it was super slow again but 100A survived multiple tries). After replacing the harness it turns over fast and normal every time but wont start and has the fuel pump/disty problem. My head hurts!!! lol

The headlights were made by Stealth. He made a couple threads about them.

Yup ive read those threads. Thought maybe someone actually was able to make clear covers without hacking apart a stock lens.

It's OK Kyle...I'm sure that motor and trans will live in another car...

Most likely picked apart between Steve and myself ;)

Yeah, that Greddy intercooler IS pretty nice isn't it ;) Wish I could get my wiring expert over here. Dude is super hard to get over here. I'm thinking the 94 626 harness isn't compatible with the 93 Mx6 harness. Anyone have any input on this? The fuse box is different between the 2 but every plug is the same. Wish there were more mx6's in the junkyards. And Deedz, I don't need more pictures...I need more videos!!!
