Andre's 2g GSX build
Thought I would make my own build thread to lay out my progress and where I am hoping to take the car . Mainly just a toy, don't drive my cars a ton due to my work schedule being very demanding during the summers but like to try make it to a couple events a year.

Car is a 1995 LSD GSX 5 speed, just shy of 100000 miles. I started with a really nice rust free car. Actually bought it to steal the awd drive parts for my gst that I had at the time. After starting the rust restoration on the gst I decided the cancer had gone to far and my brothers car from high school 14 years ago was finally dead. Ended up going with the GSX but red was not what I had in mind so I will just do a short time laps of pics to show where it sits

Re: Andre's 2g GSX build
Damn, i forgot you were running the 3794.
A lot of nice parts on there.
2700lb range is light!! I'm jealous.

What are the goals for 2015? Unless you are going to make some more passes this year?

Re: Andre's 2g GSX build
Awesome build !

Dark2g 10-06-2014 08:40 PM

Re: Andre's 2g GSX build
Would like to run a 9 eventually. Just not ready for it to be a full drag car. Not really sure that is my goal with it but u never know.

Re: Andre's 2g GSX build
Thanks for all the nice comments. The mani is unique for sure and was relieved he was able to fix it for me in the end. My goals for this car this winter are all drivetrain related. Will not be racing again this season. Don't even wanna bring it out again tell I feel like I am not gonna rip my drivetrain apart again.

Goals are
Dss driveshaft
Not sure on transmission but most likely a TRE variant with 4 spyder
Volks subframe and am getting road race version with sway bar provisons
transfer case 300m output
Kinda like the idea of a evo rear end but I am sure I will be sick of spending money on this project.
Need to try a new throttle body. Think mine was giving me some problems.

In the spring the car will need more tuning and more boost but don't plan on doing much more then that for now.
Best I was able to do was a 11.08@96
It was my first run of the day at pg2 and wish I would have ran it out cause all I did was have my tranny get worse after each run until I broke a fork

Re: Andre's 2g GSX build

evotuner 10-06-2014 11:49 PM

Re: Andre's 2g GSX build
Very very nice project! Guys like you make me want to buy a 2g and do the same thing!!

dsmreck 10-07-2014 01:51 PM

Re: Andre's 2g GSX build
No guys like dre make you want to sell your 2g cause his is too bad ass.

evotuner 10-08-2014 11:39 PM

Re: Andre's 2g GSX build
That makes zero sense.

dsmreck 10-09-2014 10:52 AM

Re: Andre's 2g GSX build
When you realize it takes 30k to do what he has done it does.

evotuner 10-09-2014 11:29 AM

Re: Andre's 2g GSX build
You dont need 30k to do what he has done, I'm not taking anything away from what he's doing by any means but it wouldnt take 30k. Either way man, good luck with sale of car! Badass for sure

dsmreck 10-09-2014 03:16 PM

Re: Andre's 2g GSX build
Ok don't want to clutter up his build thread. This car is IMO the best 2g in mn.

Re: Andre's 2g GSX build
Been awhile since I have updated this. Just swamped with work this fall and not a lot of free time. Picked up a tre stage 4 trans. Took it all apart and thought I would post up a pic of johns detail work and some evo 3 - 4 and double synchros. I was very excited the condition the internals were in considering it is used. 4 spyder diff housing had a broken tooth unfortunetly but am sending it to twicks and a new hosing and he is gonna hook me up along with checking over the intermediate and input gear sets.
Some dss LSD axles and now gonna be hunting down a driveshaft next.
Mainly happy to get some drivetrain mods but budget has
been limited cause I picked up a new toy in the fall and
have been working hard on it. Had a bad paint job that was flaking and 6 layers of paint and primerl later I am just about ready to prime the car. Going to get a feed body kit and just picked up some nice evo-r hid headlights.
Gonna switch colors just not sure what yet for sure.

Re: Andre's 2g GSX build
That car is just itching for a motor swap.

Let me know when you want to sell that basic motor.....
Eagle rods are gross or haven't you heard?

GsXkingGsX 01-21-2015 09:00 PM

Re: Andre's 2g GSX build
Ahh, yes. You're snagging a Volk subframe. I saw Cory's and instantly fell in love on tuners. Let me know if you have any issues with it.

dsmDolney 01-22-2015 08:19 AM

Re: Andre's 2g GSX build
What did you use to undercoat ur car ?

Dark2g 01-22-2015 08:58 PM

Re: Andre's 2g GSX build
Aaron what do u think I should swap in there out of curiousity. Tuff because I really love how the street port 13b sounds. 2jz would be cool, ironically there is a kid in town up here with a FD and rb26 and it sounds pretty unique when I have heard him drive by me a few times.

I used POR 15,
Word of caution do not fill bolt holes unless u like running the tap:).

I have not had Paul start the subframe yet for me but my plan is deffinetly to have one made for the car. Probably after driveshaft and transfer case upgrade.

turbotalon1g 01-22-2015 10:05 PM

Re: Andre's 2g GSX build
Trade your eagle motor for my internals and cash.

FD, either a LS or 2JZ. I'd do 2JZ I think.
