    Well, after returning from a successful casino trip last weekend...





    I've decided to change the plans a little bit. I've always been a little on the fence with this build. It seemed stupid to me to be spending over 12 grand on this build, and not even breaking 200whp. So with that being said, I'm going to do a mild n/a lsvtec build. Hope to make around 210 to the wheels.

    So after making this decision, I started ordering parts. Wonder what cam gears I'm gonna go with?



    Rich also had a shift knob for sale so I threw him a few extra bucks and he threw this in the box.



    Glamour Shot



    Going to pickup some custom BNIB Comp N/A cams next weekend from a local. Also ordered Comp retainers and valvesprings last night.

    I have one more interior piece showing up this week, should be here Tuesday. Super excited for this one because I hadn't had any luck finding one for sale at a reasonable price. But I've found that if you wait it out long enough and stay persistent, you'll find what you need.

    By now I'm sure you've realized I have a sick obsession with Spoon Sports.
    I just ordered the very last Spoon Sports Official Team Jacket from Spoon Sports Benelux in Europe.



    These are no longer being produced for sale to the general public.
    Should go nicely with my ESR Spoon Sports bobblehead T.
    I remember when they released these T shirts, I woke up for work at my usual 5:30 am, logged onto all of the usual social media sites to kill some time while I drank my coffee, and saw that ESR had released this shirt. I'd been waiting for the drop for a while so of course I ordered one right then, I looked back on my lunch break around noon that day to see that they had already all sold out.



    Also just ordered the Spoon Sports skate deck from GoTuning. I'll probably use it as a hood prop at shows. Kind of a nostalgic purchase for me as well, I haven't been able to skate since I was 16 due to a knee injury that left me laid up for 6 months, after multiple surgeries. Doc said I wouldn't be able to skate ever again if I liked the idea of being able to walk passed the age of 20.

    Currently trying to workout a deal on a set of seats as well. Seats and wheels are two of my favorite things that go into customizing a car, so I wanted some seats that were somewhat "rare". I was going to order a set of Recaro Confettis after having no luck locating the first set that I really wanted, but just when I had given up hope a friend of mine gave me a lead on a set in Texas. I'm pretty excited because I personally have never even seen these seats. Pretty sure it's safe to say I'll be the only one in my area, if not the entire state, with these seats.

    Well that's about all I've got for now, I'll update throughout the week as more stuff shows up. As always, Thanks for looking at my build!

    Second gen Spoon steering wheel. This thing's so mint it blew my mind. Literally zero scratches or wear marks.
