I own a 99 and picked up a partial fmII kit. I am amassing all the parts that didnt come with the kit. I should have said parts in a week or so. I really want to strap on the turbo and of course do the clutch. I am without a lift and really dont feel like doing a clutch on my back. PR
motorsports quoted me $520 for clutch and flywheel job.
Next, bought a wrecked 10ae I am currently parting out. Keeping the motor, thats it. Going to have at least rods put in maybe a little headwork. Trying to achieve between 15-20 psi safely. If anyone knows a shop in northern california for the motor work?? I am currently researching..
Finally, the turbo setup will be complete and ready to install long before the motor will be. My real question is: Since ill need the clutch from the get go, its probably smarter to wait for the new motor and once the old motor is out do the clutch, oil return etc. right? I would be doing all said work if i had a lift, but i do not. I figure somewhere in the neighborhood of 1000-1500 to swap the motor? So why pay 500+ for a clutch when the tranny has to get swapped? And that would be the perfect time to do the clutch.
Any advice on the dollar figures would be nice. Or if anyone wants to help with the swap and has a spot to do it i would compensate them($$$). I really want to do the work and build MY car. I have much more respect for people that wrench on their own rides than people with deep pockets(just me). I pulled the motor from the 10ae and feel fairly confident i could do it again(however i cut off the front end and pulled it straight out, so a little different with a non wrecked car.)but none the less.
I could have the clutch done and be at 10psi in no time. maybe i just want someone to tell me to go that route, i dont know. I want boost bad. Also doesnt $520 seem super pricey. All data says 3.2 for clutch and .4 for flywheel. $520 for less that 4 hours work i guess. PR
motorsports is the spot dont get me wrong but still. thanks mt.
