"my poor legend", by elevendysevendy
 
i bought this car in jan. 03 bone stock and over the years it has gone from stock to the fast and furious look a like with a few engine mods to the storage unit and now into my friends garage being prepped for autocross and minimal street use. i wont tell the whole story, ill just give the short version. I used to race and in may of 03 i had a crash in practice and broke my back in 7 places which confined me to a wheelchair. So if you ask why it has taken me so long to get this car together, its because 90% of the work i cant do myself, i usually need help with it. ive been collecting parts for this car for 4 years now and finally its being put together and should be drivable by feb.09 and be ready for autoX by next summer. I cant wait to race again its been almost 7 years since the last time i was on the track. here are some pics from b4 i put it in storage there the only ones i have atm and these are after i hit a massive possum doing 110 down a back road, then blew out 4th gear at IRP. So to say the least the car looks like a giant turd. ATM the car is completely stripped in my friends garage and the motor is almost completely done and we are hoping to have in the car and ready to start by christmas (im paying him to help me, but he has other cars to work on that pay the bills and he charges me less than half his regular customers)and driveable by feb. So here is a list of all the performance mods and the pics of my poor legend.

Type II swap
Akimoto short ram intake
KMS oversize TB
P&P intake manifold
P&P heads
Milled heads .025
Web cam regrind
ASP underpulley
Ground Wire kit
Stage II Dinian chip
SAFC II
OBX headers
magnaflow cat
Holly blue 255 lph fuel pump with regulator
10 gallon aluminum fuel cell
Rear tower brace
215/35/18 8.5 yokohama paradas (wheels in pics are on my wifes pontiac GP now)
Stage 2 weight reduction (A/C removed, as well as any other non essential parts Radio etc.)

still undecided on brakes and suspension. any suggestions on that would be appriciated

ummmmmm.....whats up with the shopping cart ricer spoiler?

L3GDKANG/JDMKANG 10-21-08 01:57 PM

pics of the rear tower brace please. Not a bad project but not a fan of the wing but if you like it thats all that matters.

elevendysevendy 10-21-08 02:46 PM

the wing is adjustable, and if you have ever driven over highway speed thru a corner you would know the back end likes to step out. spoiler helps backend stay down at high speed. pretty basic

Yeah, 'cause the Legend can get up to speeds where the back end wanders all over the road. The Legend is a fat ass, it's back end doesn't move around....even at 150.

what took you so long bro? this site ain't shit without your comments thrown into the mix :bigok:

elevendysevendy 10-21-08 04:54 PM

actually it does move around, and if you dont have any input other than thread bashing find someplace else to go.

Is what I meant to say was....
I love everything about your car! The mis matched wheels, bumper that doesn't fit right, funny side skirts, paint that looks like absolute HELL and a spoiler fit for an F1 car. Pure sex.

elevendysevendy 10-21-08 05:09 PM

apperently you didnt read the origanal post, and i can see how your so qualified to bash other peoples cars since your car is completely stock, oh wait, i believe you washed it. that must be what, an extra 10bhp?

L3GDKANG/JDMKANG 10-21-08 05:44 PM

It all boils down to this if he like it then it matters not who dont like it! I say if you want it then be a bigger man and over look what they say and keep the car the way you want it!

Yes, washing gives it more hp. It gets washed every couple of days...I think I have gained well over 1,000hp since I got it. It's toit yo.

I am more than qualified to bash cars I don't like because my car is stock and mint.

elevendysevendy 10-21-08 05:50 PM

TY kang it's ppl like that, that ruin the forum because they have nothing better to do than bash on other ppl and i really dont need your advice on the forums twogunz ive been here for 5 years now, but thanx for your input anyway

chapman89 10-21-08 06:15 PM

I'm going to have to agree with everything MasterVtec says on this one. That poor car is ruined.

elevendysevendy 10-21-08 06:21 PM

RacerX159 was my original tag plus those pics are several years old the car is completely stripped atm and being redone.

Ken 10-21-08 06:38 PM

I'll tell you the truth straight up. Your car looks like a piece of shit. but if you love your car, then more power to you because I know the feeling of being attached to a car.
