Hello again, I have BREAKING NEWS about my next car! My car is a Einvagen 110 GT. Not any GT, but a V8 is in it! I call it Minevagen because it is my car, if you wanted to know.

If you didn't, go and stick your head in a brand NEW toilet.
( ok, don't do that please i swear you'll get your head stuck! )

It all started as an idea...One stormy Sept...well actually it was a cloudy October day (the day i wrote this) I had thought that it would be cool if i could stick in a V8 in a Einvagen!

So, thus this car was born.

I started with this red Einvagen you see here, minus the v8, the wheels and the OCA Tuning hood and some assorted black paint that was applied to the new hood. And some new dust! Which it had shed immediately as I took it out for a drive!

I put on the VOLK racing wheels and those good ole' 255/45 Performance Racing thingy tires, some extremely expensive ajustable shocks springs and trailing arms/struts.

The engine, is well...an engine! It's a Hemi, (it's a fakie hemi) oh yeah it is!

Take a look at the pics!

Sorry, MY COLLEAGUES, i need to go and fix up that Baiern...I wrecked it and time is tight! :(


...yo check this out

I was once driving my brand new just built incredibly fast and awesome bmw
(cost me $12000000 to build), well... the FIRST time I took it out at the street race... I gunned it and hit something crazy like 550mph, and than smashed into a street light and flew all the way to the other side of the CITY! and 100% killed the car and every thing on it. in the end I had a $12000000 mess of a
bent-out-of-shape body of a bmw.

THIS WAS A TRUE STORY!

With the sale of the Tiburon we built and didn't really want anymore (For sale ad). We walked away with a solid $22,000 thanks to rtv190 over at Gom-team forums!



I took to the net in search for our next garage project, even tho we are STILL waiting on our clients to complete payment to finish the Family Drift GS340. I was looking for an excellent track car, I also wanted something street-able and somewhat rare. With all the talk about the 25 year import rule floating about, I did some researching and decided that an 1989 Skyline was the way to go. I wasn't able to find an '89 but did find a few 1990 models. I checked and double checked with the NHTSA and could have one imported with NHTSA SHOW/Off-Road approval (plus we were only couple months away from it being 25yo anyway). A ton of phone calls, a few missed connecting flights and some pissed TSA agents later we landed in Quebec, Canada @ Asaka JDM Auto!

We had already had a representative go test the vehicle we had selected! After dropping $9,500 we were the proud owners of...a 1990 Nissan Skyline R32 GTS-t



Don't ask why we just HAD to go see the car in person only to have to have it towed back to the shop! The day after we got it home we started gathering info on the vehicle and cleaning up the exposed wiring. The moment lunch time hit we decided to break a couple NHTSA rules...



...AND AGAIN...



...TO BE CONTINUED

Added 23 hours later:

...The body panels and parts I ordered came in this morning so we started mounting everything:

-Nismo taillights $250
-GT-R32 Spec front bumper $199
-Factory Skyline R32 side mirrors $190
-Do Luck Spoiler was from previous drift car (FOR SALE HERE)



We then moved on to the engine....but since the parts we ordered for the RB30DET hadn't arrived yet we just kinda....looked at it!



While out on lunch today (don't worry no NHTSA rules were broken today, we drove the shop truck) someone approached us and asked about buying the wheels on the skyline. By the way he was talking I guess he was working on an 240sx to r32 conversion! Since we were gonna get new wheels and tires anyway..."THROW THOSE STEELIES ON!" Can't beat selling used ass wheels with balding tiires for $600



...TO BE CONTINUED

Added 21 hours later:

GOOD AFTERNOON EVERYONE!

Great day to be in the shop, large shipment of the remaining parts dropped early this morning (First stop on UPS's route today...yay!). So we got to be very productive very early. Managed to get most of the suspension and braking components mounted.



We did (meaning me!) start on striping and replacing the interior carpet, headliner, seats and brakets......AND all the interior wiring.



Got the prep work for paint done early this morning and was way too tired to take any pics then :-( But we did for the most part finish the exterior.



Engine work finishing up tonight....

Added 18 hours later:

Good afternoon sorry about no updates last night! But the car is done! Just a couple specifics:

-Custom downpipe, intake and exhaust manifolds by Daigo Saito
-Replaced the Greedy T88 turbo with a higher output Garrett GTX 4294R
-Custom built in-house exhaust system
-Custom Holinger GTR 4 speed drift spec transmission (We're gonna keep the car off the road for right now to comply with the NHTSA...I really dont want this car crushed)





For a bit more fun we added 150 shot of nitrous (NOS kit on a throttle control switch)

The project thread for my drift build R33 GTS25t 2JZ, cross-posted from VStanced.





The car now looks like this, and turns heads everywhere I take it:

2015-01-10 22:16#252601 Harrison15 : I knew I didn't want to swap in an LS, because it's been done a lot already and I don't like the torque curve or the sound as much.
What??? :O

Anyways awesome story dude!

The R33 will be made public when it's done. :P I still have at least four or five more body kits to finish, and I might strip the interior too.
