    Lightbulb My VR6T Journey | B5 S4 Content |

    Haven't posted here in a while, and I recently just transitioned out of the Marine Corps and kick starting my build. So figured I'd post up a build thread showcasing the progress over the past year and the future content I'll post as I progress.



    Hey everyone, while cruising my 2.7 had a freakish end last November as a wrist pin cracked and one of the RPM Rods let go of a piston and blew a hole out on both sides of the block. And working on Camp Pendleton, and my home being in Antelope Valley and never being home meant the car was going to sit on ice for some time due to work constraints due to distance. Anyways Every now and then I traveled home for a couple days and was able to slowly turn wrenches and accumulate the necessary parts. Anyways I'm just finishing my transition out of the Corps and being home for good starting September [cool]

    I've mainly been posting on Facebook & Instagram, so I'll just post all the content I have so far and update in the coming weeks as I begin to pick up speed on my progression. I've sorted the bottom end, and currently looking at the Cylinder head and the options for Valves & cams along with the other long list of things I'll need to get sorted. []

    Anyways, here you guys go.

    No real updates, waiting on machine shop and others at the moment. But picked these up and dont know why I never did before. Great for moving the pig around while I tinker on her.

    Some minor changes. Going with a silver and black theme in the bay. For old pics/progress of the modified valve cover see prior posts. Figured I could be productive as I wait for the valves and other goodies to arrive in the coming couple weeks.

    Some Updates from Tim @ Beast Car Productions on my exhaust Manifold. Good to have a shop across the country with a few spare B5s and VR6s laying around for mock up & fab . Using Issam's @ IABEDIndustries VR6 B5 S4 Engine brackets now he's fabricating my Exhaust & Intake mani []

    Dropped the head at the machinist. And the Wife's birthday just passed a couple days ago, I know most men get their women Jewelry, got mine Glass Depos and a new HID kit on her Golf.

    Her old Headlights were over a decade old and plastic. Needed a replacement asap! Sorry for the crappy Cell phone pics. I'm not the photographer in the family lol

    So some attention on her MK4 while I wait for the machinist to finish the head. Should take a couple weeks.
