    Hey guys. Most of you know me from Facebook As J.T. I am a active admin on the ESD page aswell as a frequent poster about my 1997 GSX "Onyx". I bought this car in September of 2014 as a stripped roller for 1500. It was literally just a rolling shell. no wiring, interior, drivertrain, nothing. it was also a basket case missing a ton of things. It has been a long journey over the past year...first i fwd swapped from a gst, then went back to an auto awd, then parted that out and went back to a 5 speed awd....all along i hadnt driven it. Over the course of a year i had roughly 4-5 setups and just kept changing my mind blah blah blah. Finally i bought a new house in March of 15 and have a much nicer shop and was able to get organized and concentrated. Then it started coming together as a stock 99 7 bolt bottom end, built 6 bolt head, pte 5031, fic 850's, v3 on speed density, dynatek ignition, e85 ect. The 5031 didnt like 40psi and basically ate itself alive so i swapped to a t3 6152 @22psi and spun a bearing due to oil pump failure. which brings me to present day of the car being torn apart getting ready for the new winter build which is a 2.3 6 bolt....i will update the thread as i go along and i will also post a bunch of pictures from this past year.
