the CGTs is 450, I dont even want to guess what the Diablo weighs

at this point I think my lawn mower with a shot of NOS could spank the Diablo

Me thinks we should build up one of your zero turns! I foresee a big shot of NOS on top of a turbo.... Lets do it!!

That is a 1990 300ZX TT. With a front mount intercooler and the air intakes moved out to where the stock intercoolers are located.

That block is getting a set of Wiseco rods and pistons, balanced crankshaft. My old heads are getting decked and port & polished. Altogether the block should be good for four digit power, which is ridiculous and no where near my goal. Still need to purchase two new turbos, the ones I'm leaning towards are good to 625 bhp.

Car rides on a set of Tein EDFC adjustable coilovers and 235/40/18 fronts and 275/40/18 rears

That should be a rocket! Good lookin car Kona!

there wasnt a 355 in the shop for once????

I know! Every picture i have seen of his shop has a 355 in it!! That is one of, if not the best sounding ferrari's ever made, but man do they need constant fixing! Valve guides, cats, headers, sticky parts inside the cabin etc.....

What were the Ferraris having done?

Yes, please keep us posted. What are the initial general inatructions to the mechanic?

400i was in for regular service. 328 was in for a major motor out, 308 was in for major motor out.

For my car, Brian is going to first do a leakdown and compression test, then start going through what needs to be replaced. I am having a problem with the tranny at the moment. It will pop out of third gear under boost so that needs fixed. All the fuel lines need replaced as they are dry rotted and starting to crack. And there is a mix of other stuff needing replaced. I will keep you all posted!

Car is now at Brian's shop. I am so excited to get this project rolling!! When I was there there were 3 Ferrari's in for service. A 400i on the floor, a 308 and 328 up on lifts..... Brian was a super nice guy and was excited to start working on the car. Will keep you all updated with what is going on.

Here is a list of problems with the car:
- driver's side door handle doesn't work
- no radio / CD player
- taillight covers cracked
- fog lights not installed
- paint cracking
- dirty inside and out
- crack on both front corners
- dent behind driver's door
- right side T-top leaks (according to the prev. owner, I didn't notice it though)
- driver's seat needs to be moved manually
- gas gauge runs out before hitting E

I thought that was bad enough. The seller told me the fog lights were in the trunk but they weren't, so I asked her to ship them to me, which she did. When I opened the package I found that one of them had cracked during shipping (little pieces of glass everywhere).

But I was fine with that... a minor problem. This weekend I was going to install them. Now last night I got a call from my friend whose house I parked it at saying that one of the rear tires is flat I don't know if it's vandalism or if I just ran over some glass or what. This car is cursed.

Oh well... going to tackle these problems one at a time. :/

Hang in there Webby! It will be fine.... Its all part of the joys of car ownership...... If you didn't live in South Bend I would offer my help.....
