Finally got a chance to work on it.

Got the car to idle pretty well and actually stay a constant temperature.

With no Tstat this is where it stood for over 20 minutes. Definitely made me happy.

Please excuse the messiness and dirtiness of the car. This will all be taken care of as soon as I can.

Finished the exhaust but had to take it off to get the car on the lift.

We mocked up the driveshaft and installed it. Worked out pretty well....its now at the machine shop getting done. Here's a preview.

She's coming together! Congrats on all the progress bud.

Let me get this straight though... you've put a 400+hp engine into a car, that fully ready to drive on the street, weighs about... 1700 lbs? You're my kinda gearhead haha.

Well I haven't updated this in a while but i have done some work on this car and i also have other things come by my way....

Couple of updates.

I installed the windshiled, might be permanent since the dash cover has to go on. Loving the car more and more as it resembers a car more and more... :)


Also i installed the driver's side bucket seat. Welded a bracket onto the stock rails so it could be adjusted and use the stock bolt holes on the bottom. The other seat is bad so i need to order another. However not bad for the seats being free!


Chugging along!

and then I bought my gf a 300zx shiro special (only 1002 made) as a xmas gift....doesnt run but i have the motor for it.



Installed a 3 gauge holder , looks about right. I wired a temp gauge, fuel level gauge and havent decided on what the third should be. I also wired up the Innovate wideband...perhaps i can find a black face for it.



The outback my mom drives got into a "hit and run" while parked! So there goes that....now im looking for a replacement one or a shell i can drop the drivetrain into...



Ugh ****ing scumbags....i wasnt there to witness it but brother was. Only got a partial plate #....well gonna have to chalk this one up..

Bought a blown motor one off ebay!



I'm almost done the swap but having trans issues which i will be addressing very soon!
