so this totally sucks. I hooked up the wastegate on my turbo yesterday, and as i left my shop to head to work, the turbo was whining and whistling really loudly. So we checked it out and basically the turbo is disintigrating. one of the blades is nicked and chunked so it makes absolutely zero boost now.

hopefully i can get it fixed soon, but I'm betting this dampens my chances of taking it to the dunes for thanksgiving.

i've actually been really easy on the drive train side of things. i haven't been launching too hard when leaving red lights and i haven't once spun the wheels since i've driven it either. its coming out hopefully in a month though so i can go irs. for now i just have to figure out how to change all the intake/exhaust tubing so it will work as n/a

well a few weeks ago I got some new wheels for the front of my car: 15x5.50, minimum offset Douglas aluminum wheels

I've held off on putting them on because I wasn't thrilled by the idea of my old, unround tires on my new pretty wheels so i've been waiting to get new tires.

I had my dad order me some tires today for it, in the form of those common 15x7.00 Nanco offroad tires.

Tomorrow I should have my new wheels and tires on my car. I'll post pictures then. Laughing


Oh, and still no turbo. Which sucks.

umm, i'm not completely sure cause my dad got them for me. i'm pretty sure he got them ordered from karl's and i know my cost was 67 per tire but thats without tax and shipping which is something i don't have to pay through my granpa's shop.

you might just call Karl's as they'll be able to give you you're price rather than the wholesale price.

here's some new photos of my baja as of this morning:




I got my new front wheels and tires on yesterday, and wow what a difference it makes in the overall look. I'm going to attempt to polish my rear wheels (satin finish centerlines) this weekend or the start of next. Anyone done this before? Got any suggestions?

yes its a cat. its my baffle for my stinger. unfortunately my turbo disintegrated and this was what we i had laying around that would bolt right on to my header.

in the garage is my brother, my dad and I's project jeep. Normally his 65 notchback would be there in the garage but he's doing some motor work on his car.

christmas was really good to me and my baja.

my parents bought me 15x7 Douglas wheels to match my 15x5.5 fronts, also since my centerlines were going to be a lot of work to polish.

then today, lucky for me i was able to pick up a 6 point bolt-together cage from a guy in glendale, and with a days work, painted it, and put it in. here's a few new photos:




Although i have the capabilities to fab my own cage, this was a much quicker route to take, and also cheaper.

next week i plan on converting my rear suspension to irs and have almost gathered all the parts.

the headliner (as you can see from the photos is sort of lacking) will be done within the next few weeks as well.

then its on to getting the roof painted, its still primered and i should be content for a while. Wink

its actually more of a headliner material, that gray tweed isn't cheap for that big of a piece.

And i will post a photo once the rear wheels are on. Once the IRS swap is done, the wheels will be put on along with a new set of 31x10.50. I really hate to buy a new set of tires just to wear the outside edge down.

well i've been working the past couple of days on converting my swing-axle baja to IRS
today i was able to finish the pivot mounts and get the arms, shocks, drums, stub axles, and break-lines hooked back up. I also got the transmission back in.

all that is left now is for a little bit of clearancing of the frame horns for the cv's at the transmission, axles can then go in, and the motor will go back in.
I should be driving it home friday and I'll have it at sonic next friday.

Here's some pictures so far, i'll post better ones once the car is home.






Also thanks to Bugzyla for allowing me to borrow his jig even though it wouldn't work on my car, and also a HUGE thanks to my dad for helping to make all of this possible. Laughing

THE IRS SWAP IS A SUCCESS!!!!

Got my axles and cv's put in this morning. bled the brakes and reinstalled the throw-out bearing.

bolted the motor right back up, and began tightening all the bolts and putting it back together.

once everything was good, checked to make sure i had all gears, and took it for a test drive. needless to say, the test drive was a bit exciting because the return spring for the carb came off and it went wide open. i fixed that and so far so good.

the tranny shifts perfectly, and it doesn't grind going into second like my swing axle tranny did.

i couldn't be happier with the way things went, the ride is so much smoother and is much stabler on the freeway. Laughing Laughing

here's some pictures of the final product:






And now there's no more crazy camber angles!

new tires and wheels will be on the rear next week.
