Since the middle of November 2021, I started to slowly move in. My biggest thing was the garage and setting it up. I tackled it piece by piece (not counting the house and other things). Epoxy the floor, install LED lights, set up storage and work table, install ceiling racks, and something I didn’t expect to get, but lucked out on… a 12ft wide garage cabinet set up for free (from CL).
Anyways, Project Leopard was dormant because Marco was on vacation and the RB25det was at a standstill as it has been for over a year.
Hung said he would dial in the suspension, so I ordered all new parts for it. So that will be done shortly.
Marco came back from his vacation and told me to order up parts. intake/exhaust manifold gaskets, timing belt (which was there already), Timing tension bolts and water pipe.
The water pipe erosion wasn’t a new issue, but Marco told me before it was okay to reuse. So I said reuse for now (that was months ago). He brought it up a few weeks back again, so I was able to ask Aaron of Boost Doc about his product and he helped me out!!!
I also ordered the upgraded ARP timing tensioner hardware kit.
When I first started to buy everything for the RB25det, I came across this upgrade kit from Boost Factory. For some reason, I didn’t order it. I think I wanted the engine to get to that level as it was just in parts back then. So when Marco asked about this, I decided to just get the ARP upgraded kit.
Last but not least, the intake and exhaust manifold gaskets. I went with Tomei’s metal exhaust manifold and Cometic’s MLS intake manifold gasket.
Also another thing that was suppose to happen a year ago, media blast the Greddy intake manifold, which it was sent out the other day.
That’s it for now, I’ll be in LA in a couple weeks, so I’m looking forward to getting on the car.
