    Lots of new updates on the Build Diary...

    Stop on by, get 'em while they're fresh...

    UPDATES on my Build Diary site. Not EVERYTHING but pretty darn close. News on the new 3.5L TDC 550HP Turbocharged motor build. Yes, I said 3.5 Liter TDC... baby's got some new displacement!!!

    Also, new build pics and navigation. On the main page, you can now click the UPDATE button at the top left to go to a new updates page to see and go to the latest.

    My rear looks really good! You should check it out

    Love the 3.5 motor thing. Looks like your doing it right. A new 354.

    Well it is a 355 replica... well, I guess its a 350 replica now but if I can squeeze out another .05 liters...

    Seriously, I'm really looking forward to getting it finished and in the car. I've already got TWO MORE engine builds for other Fiero and Kit folks lined up behind this one with several more in the works. It's crazy how many people are hungry for this kind of work!

    The best part is, I very ecconomical. The headwork I'm getting done is around $2000 bucks most anywhere and I'm getting it done for HALF that and BETTER than most.

    Gotta love that!

    Now all I got to do is get the rest of the updates and pictures online. I was just so burnt out, I had to stop. Maybe I'll work on it more tomorrow.

    Glad you're all enjoying it

    Too bad they don't make a 5 valve per cylinder head for the DOHC engine your using. What kind of turbo will you be using? My thoughts are to do the same to my 3800. I would be happy with 325-350 HP. That would be about all I can use at my age.

    Your car is looking really good, the rear looks GREAT and the way the frt fenders line up in reference to the hood is really good. I am happy for you and can't wait to see more pics.
    Have you decided what color ? and what is the estimated time for finishing your project ?
    Keep up the good work

    Nice job, DKOV. I believe that your car should look as nice as Spyder's when it's done.

    DKOV:

    It looks like you did a pretty nice job of installing the rear taillight sub-structure and tail light panel. I knew those parts would make your Mirage look better for you. Do you like the way the panel properly places the taillights for you? All of those little things make a big difference don't they? Your car is going to look great! Dont forget to add a splash panel under your L brackets to keep everything dry under the taillights, at least splash proof.
