    Elliot's Sc2 & Daily: Sluggo mk3 (pic heavy)

    I'm not the greatest with build threads but I want to give it a go. Also there is a bit of a back story here to bear with me:

    It all started with my saturn and subsequently my first car, affectionately called "Sluggo". A loaded 99 sl2 with leather,and pwr everything but unfortunately it was a slush box
    [IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG]
    Eventually at 216K and my severe adolescent abuse it was time to retire the poor bastard. RiP.

    so after a large amount of searching i found a low mileage 99 that was a manual
    checking it out for the first time : [IMG][/IMG]
    but it was a basic bitch so i swapped all the parts i could out of sluggo and thus sluggo mk2 was born

    Sombody clean up the noob's posts. Otherwise not bad.
    Two things.
    A huge chin spoiler is no substitute for lowering springs/coilovers.
    Needs more boost.
    72 Charger: pissed me off, on jackstands.
    95 SW1m: Dohc swap. DD. I can haz boost?

    So now that that is all out of the way, Enter stage left my new car, it hasn't been christened yet but its an early 98 2 dr i picked it up for $400 dollars, its a 5 spd, pwr. door locks/ windows. It had a horrid horrid knock. only by the grace of god was i able to drive it 35 miles back home. Nothing fancy but will be a lot nicer than the old mk2. I have a nice daily driver a 2002 sl2 so i puts along building it while i finish up nursing school, its a great stress reliever working on it. I might have well as gone to med school cause i found out nursing school is just as hard, just shorter.

    I let a baby faced buddy of my loose with a saws all to free the engine and he ended up slicing through my oil cooler
    [IMG][/IMG] [IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG]


    Btw this all took place over the last 4 months. I'll snap some pics of whats going on in my shop tomorrow, i just slapped the new engine back in last saturday.

    I also took apart one of my trannies and slapped the diff on my bridgeport and double pined the diff with solid hardened 3/16" pins

    I bolted some more stuff to the engine today and tried to sort out the mess of wires and plugs. I've pulled the motor on these things 4 times but I can never remember :/



    I also goofed around and had a lil "rally" moment on a gravel and dirt road with my daily today

    I kinda like the look of teardrop 3s on a 3g with mud flaps. Looks rally-ish.

    I've heard great things about them, technology has improved vastly. Wasn't that long ago they would burn out from too much heat
    I wonder when we will get led headlights, I remember a year ago I read about bmw's crazy lazer headlights

    Honda/acura has them. I like the wheel gap on that turd for the first time ever. Looks natural on that gravel road.

    I got some work done this week, I put all the motor mounts back on , both axles, buttoned up the tranny-engine brace and finished wiring it all up. Also i got my replacement long oil cooler so i started to repair the oil cooler system.
