Progressively played sir…. and it’s street driven

Made progress with both Fairlady silvia and with Serenity, for the ones who follow my blog on my progress. I have been progressing very well with my projects. 

the 200sx SEv6 carb monster is doing very well with the new clutch setup until while driving to street driven event back in september I’ve noticed a weird bang. turns out I did a huge rookie move and forgot the pilot bushing from doing the auto to manual conversion on the second block I’ve acquired. So in 1 day I ripped apart the transmission, installed the bearing and called it a day. In the mean time I have been putting together and troubleshooting the small stuff on this motor including a rookie move #2 I should have re-gasket the whole motor before installing including the pisron rings. 
Project Serenity is in action finally, drove it to the datsun meet of november Ratsun LV. She drove decent and the motor has ran great with 0 issues.

My Progressive weight loss finally at last.

I have finally found the diet that really does tick with my body but the thing is as I research more it is what the human body should be. High Fat, Low Carbs is the diet to start out with and progressively work on down to Keto Diet.
Down a rabbit hole, it all started when a few co-workers were talking about the keto diet for shedding pounds off. I started to look up the keto diet and stumbled upon this video “Fat Head Documentary” it was a satire documentary about a real thing and showing that Super Size Me the movie was a load of crap. After also a year prior watched a video called “That Sugar Film” I recalled a bit about the sugar is a bit what is hurting us all.

I watched Fat Head, and then I learned a bit that this has to be what is wrong with me as at the time I am doing about 1500 cals per day basically starving myself but still loading up on carbs eating what “America” says is healthy. When I moved to Keto, I started with a higher fat and tracked my daily intake. 60% fat I started with and about 80g of carbs I was eating about 2,100 cal’s per day. After the first 2 weeks of the self-challenge I went from 293 down to 278 and I at the time let my carbs hit around 15 – 20 per day. So I took a cheat day after all I finally found what is working. To stay in ketosis you need to be in High Fat and very low on carb intake around 15 – 20g per day and mostly fiber.

I started in the first week of May 2017 with the weigh in at 293lbs, 8/31/2017 I am now at 238lbs (55lbs in 4 months) and that is with cheat days and some added stress and drama towards my life I never gained anything back, I love what I eat. It is like having a hidden treasure of food, I even eat fast food often and still keep in ketosis. In-n-Out makes this excellent burger called the Protein Burger.
Key factors to it is just as simple as no sugar, no wheat, no corn. Research and watch a few videos and read others success videos. There is a lot of support for this diet and the food is excellent even if you just want to eat fast food daily. If you like pizza the “Fat Head” Pizza is amazing with the cloud bread.
My Cholesterol levels are excellent now, my blood pressure has lowered massively and I have more energy than I ever had before.

I can’t give a direct food plan but if you have a love for special styles just member there is a recipe for it out there for Keto style. This is much better than the low calorie and you want to avoid anything with no fat or low fat products.
If there is anything I can do, I can coach you on it it just takes a moment with a simple email or facebook. I have been on a strict with my diet lifestyle for the past 4 months, I am on a mission until I hit my weight goal and even then, it’s a lifestyle not just a diet.

The drive and home resolutions

So first I would like to say, I had a hearing on the tpo filed against Kal and we had to dissolve the TPO due to unsuccessful serving on the courts side and they are unable to serve it to him in Montevista Hospital and regardless of the blind threat I recently heard I had no other choice but to dissolve the TPO. So from here on out there is nothing I can do as it is not my responsibility and if he shows up to enforce this threat I will deal with it then.

For now I am getting closer to driving my car again. Here is a simple test drive with 0 issues this round. 

Also I decided to repair a small minor detail on my other s12 project Serenity.

The Fairlady Silvia Returns.

From the head-gasket failure from the installation recently, I decided to wrap this one up with the VG30e heads I had cleaned up and resurfaced a while back. 

New set of Fel-Pro head-gaskets that did just fine last time before I blew up the last motor. 

I transferred back the SR cams back to the vg30 heads from the vg33 and went with it. 

With that being said I also went a head and replace the headbolts as $20 per box of 13 each I couldn’t pass it down. 

Spent the weekend with the reinstall and worked great sunday night on the first start up but the throttle was a bit laggy so I investigated and noticed that I set the timing on the wrong mark as I had it completely backwords, 

Spent monday in the matter of 2 hours redoing the timing and when complete things sounded beautiful. 

Temperature is stable and everything.

La Familia and the engine break down.

Well moving out the Schizo friend, it is really sad but I got to hang out with his bro for the week and seemed to be much more of a cooler bro than the one I was friends with. 

Moving forward I recently just agreed upon my brother moving in and helping me around the house and car projects. Will be coaching more on the projects and other things. 

With that being said after the assist of the move in I broke down the s12.

Tearing it back down due to a failed head gasket on cyl 4, 6, and 3.

Upon doing so I am also going to get a broken piece of the head finally repaired once I find someone who can weld aluminium.

Hopefully this will be the last time I do this, I am planning to make a Williams, AZ.  Datsun meet in August.
