I might as well update my Corolla's status as well:
Stock 3TC bottom
Stock 3TC SOHC top
Stock headers
Stock carbeurator
New glass windshield with blue strip across the top
New JVC head unit
New 6.5" Pioneer Speakers
New 10" Kenwood Sub/amp
A LOT of weight reduction(washed the dirt off, took my tools out of the back seat, removed last semester's text books)
New 2" chrome exhaust tip
New stainless steel cat
New 2" tachometer(boosted the top speed by 10km/h)

I haven't taken it to the track or had it dyno'd yet, but I'd estimate it'll run high 10's to low 11's

I still have my s10 blazer but it's being torn down to the frame right now. I'm swapping the cab for a nicer one from a manual blazer and i'm replacing the 262 v6 with a 350 v8 motor and replaing the auto transmission with a 5 speed manual. Once it runs and i get the brakes in working order on it i plan to be out smoking people at the drag track on weekends :D


But here is my daily driver AND my project

1991 Chevrolet s10 regular cab
180,000+ miles
4.3 262 v6/5 speed manual transmission







It's in rough shape body wise but the frame is good and straight. The motor bogged when i got it but otherwise ran fine. I've replaced all 6 spark plugs and wires PLUS the ignition coil to distributor wire. I also did a oil/filter change and put a new air filter in it. That solved the bogging down and the motor now purrs like a kitten on steroids. You should ride in it with me and watch the hood vibrate while idling...it's awesome  8)
Aside from the motor i've replaced the right front shock because the bushing gave out. But that is all because i plan to statis drop it a couple inches later so no sense wasting money on all 4 shocks when they would have to be replaced again anyway. Right now i'm waiting to get paid for a job then i'm buying a bed that isn't rusted up like mine,a fiberglass rollpan to replace the rear bumper that is bent,a new passenger door,steel cowl hood to replace the stock hood,and a new fornt bumper. I'll be having it repainted the same colors but without the little red stripes. When i get around to it i'm having a muffler shop weld me up two exaughst pipes for it. I will be running catalytic converters on both pipes aswell as magnaflow mufflers but for starters probably just the cats and no mufflers. But it will be true dual exaughst with one pipe per header an i plan to cut the pipe before the rear axle and do a turndown. Doing that on s10's normally gives you a mean v8 sound especially considering my motor is inches away from being a smallblock v8.

Here's my other vehicle  :lol:




It's actually being stripped down to the frame and having the frame re-painted and a bigger motor installed along with a new cab.

My old car just bit the dust mechanically, so i bought a new one :)
White 2008 Nissan Altima, pics will come when its not dark.
I don't have plans to mod anything right now, as the car itself will be eating most of my available money

My truck was out of commission for about 4 days until i finished installing everything and got my bed back on but it's back on the road again and much more fun to drive :D


It's bagged in the front only for now and the setup is as follows

One 3/8" smc fill valve,One 3/8" smc dump valve,1/2" DOT grade airline,5 gallon airtank,viair 400 compressor,stinger 80amp relay,and dominator 2500 bags.

My setup (Not how it looks now. I've cleaned up my wiring and extended the line for the gauge into the cab and some other stuff)





Aired up






Aired out (Still got 3" more until skidplate is on the pavement...)






And a better pic (Didn't have the bed on yet)





And finally,a video of it in action (Crappy video i know...but i had to set my camera on a light pole)







I have more detailed photos if anybody wants to see more. That's the main stuff though.

Bags!
Yup and until i can bag the back ...... 3" static drop in the rear




Got a mint valance in my room along with brand new clear bumper lights and i have a chrome "Smoothie" front bumper being shipped to my house (New also)

I'm debating what to buy this week for it. My choices are

Another viair 400 compressor (To make 2 compressors for faster fill time)
2 more valves for the front (So i can control each bag individually aswell as together)
2" drop spindles (Which would only drop my 1/2" until i cut the inner fenders because i only have 1/2" clearance between my tire and inner fender when aired out)

Not sure yet what i'll do but i'm leaning towards the valves then next maybe drop spindles and then the second compressor...

Couldn't resist the temptation of a new scooby. Picked up a 09 WRX today. Oh so sexy :)
