I wonder if Doug still lurks TO from time to time, curious to hear his impressions on the ebay coilovers.

This build is really a fantastic work of automotive art and I hope it gets enjoyed for many years to come.

Curious to see what paint color is in the car's future as well.

I was hoping he had this running by now as I could use some of his thoughts for my own proposed build...

Just curious, how are you planning on activating the acis?
Also how are you going to run the vacuum lines

I've got a vacuum actuator to work the acis. I'll post some pics soon. Here's some from the body shop.

The reason I took it back to the body shop is because they didn't cover the blue on the inside of the car, they took the body moldings off AND LEFT THE DAM HOLES, and I wanted the trunk fully black but their dill hole body man said he liked it better with alittle blue. I told the owner that he can pay to repaint it because that wasn't his decision, he no longer works there.

Here's the Acis, I used a actuator from a Mazda speed but had my machine shop fab up brackets, it was far from a bolt on. I would like to use one of those ports in the photo but I don't think a vacuum nipple will hold the boost. I'm gonna use air brake fittings and nylon tubing to connect most items.

Im not even going to lie, that paint job on the paseo is sickkkkkk
Lol, looks like your taking your time with this and is turning out well
As for the acis do you think sheet metal would hold up for a bracket?
I mean it isnt being put under any stress at all
Also wouldnt air brake fittings be over kill?
Im sure that that a normal tube with a clamp should hold it down
But then again, idk about 500hp :doh:
Specifically what year and model?
Is it much different than what came with the manifold?

That's not sheet metal, that's the factory bracket. It only has to close brackets off boost, at no vacuum the plates are open.


It's a 93' model, it was the car featured in the 97' issue of Turbo and Hi Perf. Magazine. I've owned it since 06' but grew around it since the mid 90's. I've been building since around 11', it's just been something I've always wanted to do and I've spared no expense but since I'm not rich it's taken lots of time too. Still, why rush?
