"Purple Haze" 86' hatch build

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone I just got this 86' hatch from Bill (thebeastidrive)

That is an old picture of it

Here it is as it sits today. (sorry for the bad cell phone pic)

It still has a 6" lift on it. It is also pretty much gutted

 

My plan for this build is to put this into it

Its an EJ22 i got for $25 so it need some parts to get it to run. in the process of buying new bearings and piston rings.

This pic is right before i ran it through the parts washer at school.

 

Right now i have my friends 4speed and rear diff for it.

But my other plans are to paint it a dark flat purple and black. Going to put on some 32" tire don't know what kind yet. a dual hand brake mod, a 5speed swap, a nice front and rear bumper with skid plates, a welded rear diff, and maybe a 6 lug swap.

Well Brought my pistons home to clean them. Got inside and started to look at them and saw the in between the 2 compression rings on one piston theres a chunk missing:dead: So now i have to get new pistons :banghead: or buy a decent engine with all the goodies already with it.
