From the creator of Project: Keepin' it clean, I bring you my latest time eater... RACEJEEP!!!!!!!
It's a 1999 2wd automagic that I'm building with the intent to autocross the snot outta it.
Time for TONS of pictures to bring ya'll up to date on what's been going on with this Jeep. If you have 56k, you might want to find something to do while this loads.
Yes. This is what I've been working on to keep me busy while I wait for my big valve race ported head from 505 Performance to get here so I can fix my red Sprintex Jeep... Lol
Bone stock. All I added was the tint.
Just playing around with a couple blowers.. Ended up just being flame bait. Lmao.
18x10 Mustang Cobra reps with Nexen 265 35 r18 tires.
With them on... NEEDS MOAR LOW AND MOAR POKE!!!
On the dyno.
PO hack job on the rear speaker install.....
Trying to figure out why the speakers didn't work... Ended up being partially because of a shotty install and because the speakers weren't wired into the head unit...........
You have got to be kidding me.... What in the world did they use to make this hole? A butter knife?!?
So I folded it over with some pliers and a sledge hammer...
Looks a little better... Lol
Threw on my old Volant CAI..
You thinking what I'm thinking? Can you say improvised slalom course?
Installed headers and a ported/coated intake manifold
The notorious "dent" in the OEM crossover pipe...
No. I know what you're thinking mother nature. Don't do it.
Annnnddddd.... Rain. Ain't gunna stop me.
784 (i think that's the right numbers....) injector install
LED fog lights
Decided to try these in it. First time for everything right? Lol
Autopals and putco harness along with 80/100w bulbs.
Had a blinker housing that wasn't broken sitting around, so I swapped that in while I was at it.
Looks like a perfect place to put an air compressor...
Racejeep at a local car show.
Not too shabby... Threw one rim on that the shop I go to frequently had sitting in the back just to see what it would look like.
Harland Sharp 1.6 ratio roller rockers.
Soaking them in some motor oil
Oh look. Rain. Starting to see a trend? Lol
Took the fenders, trim, and bumpers off to paint them and make it easier to have the Jeep detailed. Didn't break a single bolt on the fender brackets.
Lovely... Something else to fix.. Replaced the radiator with a CSF three core one.
New steering stabilizer
Painted the bolts on the fogs black
Got a new windshield
Tried to paint the rear bumper, but the rain keeps ruining it.... I've only repainted it what? Four times??
Piggyback for the supercharger. 100% plug-and-play.
Ended up adding a second fiberglass monoleaf to firm up the rear end. Something like 475lb per inch for each spring now.
Of course it rained while I was doing this... Lmao
Okay. It's officially a racecar now.
Repainted the rear bumper again and... It stated raining five minutes after I finished... %&#*%W$#&
Went to East Coast Bash to watch drifting.
Everyone loved racejeep. People couldn't stop looking at it. Lol. Got the thumbs up from a random guy in a minivan when I hit a two lane passing zone in New Jersey on the way back...
Prep, prep, prep. This was after spending several hours with a dremel and different types of wire wheels trying to get as much of the junk latex paint off as possible before I repainted it with red engine enamel.
Went to the junkyard to get a hood and ended up scoring two M90s. Who knows. Maybe one will end up on racejeep eventually...
