Probably not. Did I mention the transmission going in is a 6 speed?

I would at least hit it with a coat of silver to make it shine a little. Did an RX7 manifold with some kind of anodized silver finish and it looked great and never chipped. Really filled up all of the roughness and gave it some shine.

Get it done! I thought it was already done actually, Sav's thread has been a distraction of all other threads, I say we ban him.

GOT 'ER STARTED TONIGHT!!!


And by that I mean we primed the engine with oil without starting, then started it 2 times for about 5 seconds each just to make sure it starts and builds oil pressure.

Haven't hooked up the rad hoses and added coolant yet. That's tomorrow

You've found a mechanical speedo housing and gear combo that works?

AAAAAAAAAAAAAND

Its basically done

Still a very few minor things to do here and there (like getting a cone filter and a few bolts) but its basically finished. All the fluids in, re-route on, piping on, etc......










I'm so happy and nervous at the same time. Happy to be done with this ****. Nervous cause I don't want ANYTHING to happen for a LONG TIME causing me to have to repair anything.

Tomorrow I will make a big *** thread and basically beg every knowledgeable person to look over my MAP to make sure I'm not running anything dangerous or wrong.


Thanx to all for your words of encouragement and compliments. Thanx to those that constantly answered all my stupid questions


Thank you MIATATURBO.NET
