So after seeing Phils thread of any builds going on over winter, thought id put together a little timeline of the evolution of my 6
All starter in 2013 when i purchased after selling my rx7 and needing something a little more 'sensible'

All started with a fairly stock looking 6. low mileage forged engine, intercooler, 3 inch system, walbro 255 and exe-tc coilovers.


Decided to make use of said forged engine so bought lots of go faster parts




Did a build :D


Did a dyno :D


Made some reasonable pub figures :smthumbup
(cant find dyno graph at moment!) But 550hp/440 ftlb at 1.8 bar

Bought some parts to make me slow down again


Did a brake :wallbang: :blah:




So thats where the piston went :goingmad:


Bought more shiny parts :thumbup::thumbup:


Did a build :D


Did a dyno :D


Made some better pub figures :smthumbup


Did a brake :wallbang: :blah:


Got a guy called Clive...? To do a fix :naughty:



Did a wrap :D


Then finally got round to some proper use at a couple of track days. Rockingham and Snetterton. At this point I realised I needed some better tyres, decent geometry set up and to swallow a bit of 'man pride' and get some tuition.



Did a test fit #becasueracecar but decided to stay OEM


Bought some scaffolding :eek::naughty:


So that's about where im at now. over winter i need to get the cage base plates welded in, investigate an odd whine (and no its not a female passenger or similar :lol: ) tidy up some of the underside and fit my second bucket seat. Then back out next year for track days and the like. Fancy a round of the MLRSS but not convinced yet!
Most of the major surgery has been done. Will try and keep it updated with what develops further!

Nice work! What caused the piston damage/failure?
A combination of full race car and being a bit of a bell end! Wont divulge in to too much detail on the open interwebs!

Your car is a monster smithy, it keeps me thinking about 5858s!! cracking build of yours.

Great read bud, liking the humour too :)

No need to worry about man pride with tuition, totally worth it and means you will get more out of your car. Money very well spent IMO
my exact thinking. its the first car ive used on track so feel i have thrown myself right in at the deep end. the bug has well and truely got me. dont need any more power, just need to learn how to harness it properly and become quicker!

another little update from the winter fiddling!

Bought some bush for the rear end as some were looking a little tired.
Found some crack to go with the bush :eek:



so a new arm was replaced and fitted. All good. also cured a knock that seemed to have materialised last summer. so guessing thats when it decided it no longer wanted to function properly!

Decided to become Picasso for the afternoon and gave the Diff a lick of paint while it was out. Anyone that wants portraits/animals or similar done, hit me up!



Fitted a baffled sump that id had sitting in the box since Xmas. Deiced i didnt like fitting it just once I would do it 3 times because the dam thing leaked from the flanges :blah:



Had a little tidy up in the arches etc and my rather sorry looking filler neck and guard were tidied up and given a coating of the black stuff. Hopefully be good for eternity



Dropped the car off to have the scaffolding fitted mentioned earlier in the thread. only to find out our good friend iron oxide had decided to take up residency in my footwell. out with the grinder!



Once done, scaffolding was fitted and a rather tidy job done. Cheap plug for Hard knocks speed shop :smthumbup



Then decided i needed to go a bit more 'full race car' so though i would give SVA a run in the aero department.
Cue splitter fitting



Then after all this, was at Japfest yesterday and got the old girl out on the track for a shakedown. Nothing broke/fell off and no new funny noises materialised!



Future plans include trying not to break anything else! A slight whine has been about which i need to investigate further. But now time to enjoy it and get some track days under my belt

Track days are that I own the car for :). Change your fluids often, make sure you do slow warm up laps and then cool down laps and she will purr for you like a kitten :).
