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
2720 lbs

Engine
2.0l 6 bolt
Kiggley brace, wiseco pistons, eagle rods, mls head gasket, fluid damper
2g head mild port work, dual springs, stainless ferrea valves, kelford280s, adj gears
John Whalen ff mani
Fp 3786 hta turbo @38lbs right now.
Mishomoto half radiator
Jmf drag mani
Ets "4 race short route intercooler stainless piping
Turbo smart bov and waste gate
Apexi cat back with a custom downpipe
DSMlinkv3

Driveline
Frontline fab rear diff cover and driveshaft loop
Ptt twin disc
Isuzu slave
Braided lines

Brakes and suspension
Fronts are stoptech rotors and gt calipers with hawk pads
Rears are brembo evo calipers and stoptech rotors
Ingalls and STM camber correction kits
Tein coilovers
Rm sway bars
Evo9 wheels/hankook tires

Fuel
Id2000 injectors
Russel 8an feed and 6 return
Fuel lab regulator and filter
Twin Bosch 044 pumps with pre filters
Fic rail
10gal rci cell

Interior
Aem wideband, oil pressure, and boost gauge
Evo9 seats
Full interior

Exterior
Carbon fiber hood and hatch, with FAL speed glass
Wicked white paint color

I am sure I am missing a lot but that's a majority of the stuff.

Things I still have not installed are the dss race axles and dynatec ignition. I am gonna be doing all my driveline modifications this winter with the first being a subframe that Paul Volks making me

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

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

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

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.

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?

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.

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.

Trade your eagle motor for my internals and cash.

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