Braum Falcon-X FIA seats installed!









They feel much more sturdy (obviously) and hold me in tight. They're comfortable enough for what they are so I'm happy!

Nothing really substantial to update other than some sweet new LED garage lights!





They really light the place up!

Debated for too long between getting Quickjacks or a new jack and stands. Ended up with a set of ESCO stands and an Arcan low profile jack that lifts the car higher than Quickjacks up to 21 inches!! Glad I saved the $800 and got this setup. I can set it up quicker and it's very secure on the padded stands.

Was hoping to get some info on how the stock engine finally gave up? Was it during a track day and were you on the 300-ish whp tune? Any particular cause based on a specific parameter (oil temp, press, etc?).

You decided to go with Mazworx for the engine build - how is the new motor holding up? Any oil burning issues? What is the tune like for the built engine and is it being used as a daily or just for autocross/track days?



And, finally, how is the transmission holding up?


Thanks for sharing!

Temps and pressures were nominal and the tune was on point. A connecting rod bent after a pull at 14psi (~400whp) on the street, close to home.

New engine is holding up fine, however I am currently patching small oil leaks from bottom of the timing cover.

The tune is based on the same one I was running before. Car is still street driven occasionally but mostly built for track days.

No issues with the transmission.

Your car looks soooo good! I smile when I see pictures of it. I would love to see your car in person if your ever in CA.

If I may ask, do you mean patching in the literal sense, or doing a reseal on the timing cover? I ask because mine has leaked for years and if there's a good patch method I'd love to hear it.

Patching the outside where it's leaking using Permatex Ultra Grey/Black sealant. I'm really trying to avoid a full reseal of the timing cover as it's incredibly laborious and the leak isn't bad enough to warrant it at this point. It's more annoying than it is a risk to the engine. Plenty of stock, unmolested FA20's leak from the cover, and I consider myself lucky to only have a minor leak.

Hmm. Got any pics? If it doesn't leak then I may have to try this out myself. Thanks btw.
