It was a Wednesday if I recall, I was vigorously working at my desk not slacking off when I heard singing coming down the halls.
“DO YOU WANT TO BUILD A DRIFT CAR?”
“AND LIKELY SMASH IT INTO WALLS”
Our love for drifting is only surpassed by our love for the movie Frozen here at Wiring Specialties so how could I ever say no?
So we decided on going with an E36 sedan, after some hunting we found a relatively unmolested sedan with 200k miles on the clock.
“She smelled of cigarettes and Chanel number five but her potential for greatness was clear, so it began.”
She smelled of cigarettes and Chanel number five but her potential for greatness was clear, so it began. Our decision to go with the 2JZGTE VVTI was simple. Build an awesome car and get our VVTI harness finished up. We made some calls and had our 2j and r154 in hand relatively quick, next came a full cooling setup from our friends at Mishimoto. Loaded the car in the trailer and brought it down to Freed Engineering in Maryland. Luckily these guys make the best JZ E36 mounts on the market and got the car together and running in record time. We snatched the sedan up on our way back from Atlanta and it was officially go time!
Had a full set of Prime Coilovers from Fortune auto as well as a Ultra Angle kit from SLR. The quality was on point with both and I quickly started ripping out the stock suspension. The angle set from SLR was simply breathtaking. The only argument I had was the directions but with some help of the internet and a few friends we got it all together and it was awesome.
Stay tuned for part two!
