Default socal newb

hey everyone.... ive been lurking the site for awhile...had probelms in the past with other forums where all they do is give the newb **** since we are newb and offered no help... anyways here it goes:
i jeremy... located in san diego... i been working at a local performance/ aftermarket shop in miramar for 4-5 years now... autofashionusa.com the ti is my brothers... but since im the mechanic at home im using it as a dd while i work on my 03wrx... so all in all i know mostly japanese and a lil bit of domestic... so since i have the ti for now... i might as well get my feet wet in the euro side of the industry... went through formal training on automotive engineering and planning on getting into paint and interior... my personal goal is to be the jack of all trades when it come to automotive... so far so good... um specs on my current projects... no pics yet since ive been dealing with my health but here it goes:

2003 subaru wrx
jdm sti version 7 motor ecu tranny readend hubs brembo steering wheel jdm headlight full custom equal length headers 3in down pipe mated to sti catback (temporary because i blew up the last two i had) hks hypermax coilovers
there more but i cant think
plan on getting 350-400hp on a loaded dyno
hopefully it will be next to complete before next sema so i can work on the ti

1995 bmw 318 ti
super stock lol
plan on doing a rear mouted turbo since there is no room in the engine bay
and running the i/c pipe through the stock airbox and running a blow through map
going to use my stock tdo4 since its small and i have it from my old motor

2 1965 mgs
both are my dads
he has the convertable and i have the hard top
the convertablle will be getting a new long block from moss motors built to my specs from the research and experience i had

and the hard top will be getting the jdm treatment with either an sr20 rb 20 or 26 or the 2jz
all but the rb have been done

lastly i have my 1978 el camino that im restoring for my dad
and my older bro has his 58 caddy

as you can see i have a lot on my plate but im still willing to learn more

sorry if its long and full of unnecessary info... not big on intros lol
enjoy... and thanks for stopping by and reading

Hey Jeremy, you weren't in the Navy were you? Last name Spears? Ejection seats, VF-2 Bounty Hunters, AME2 Lee ring a bell?

Lol, oh well it was a long shot. I used to be stationed at Miramar and attached to a F-14D squadron before it became a Marine base. My squadron shared a hangar with TopGun(hangar 1). Anyway, I had a buddy in my shop named Jeremy. When the Marines moved into Miramar, the Tomcats moved to NAS Oceana, Virginia Beach. Jeremy transfered out of my squadron and moved to NAS Lemore. I ran into him a couple years later while on detachment there and he had an old El Camino and a couple other classic muscle cars.

Miramar was a pretty cool place, wouldn't surprise me if he moved back there. I just noticed your name was Jeremy and you drove an El Camino and figured what are the chances. Welcome to the forum, keep us posted on your projects. Friendly group of people here.
