Dropped the engine in over the weekend but couldn't take any pics cause for some stupid retarded *** reason my damn camera wouldn't charge. Didn't get it running yet because of some fitment issues. I've got to clock the turbo so my oil drain doesn't hit the steering shaft and figure out my oil drain. Turbo outlet is also gonna be a bitch since it's so close to the subframe now. Oh yea also found out my started took a **** so I need one of those too

Small update nothing special but I ordered the fittings I need for my oil return line and a catch can. Should be in tomorrow(I love Summit) and maybe if I get off work early enough I can get it all hooked up and start the car for the first time

Ok so I'm gonna try and get the car running then we'll see about a partout. Tried to start the car last nite and had no pedal pressure for the clutch. Car also wouldn't turn over. Don't know if maybe something was left unhooked or maybe the starter I got was bad(didn't test it before install) Does all the ignition stuff have to be hooked up for the engine to turn over?

No just starter and alternator I think to get it cranking. To get it to start, of course you'll need ignition.

Seriously, there aren't many things to getting your car to start. Its pretty simple. Dont give up now.

Ok so either something is unhooked, starter could be bad, maybe when I had the dash out and took the alarm system out it won't let it start now.

What about no clutch pedal pressure? Bleed the stystem?

If you're going to bother bleeding it, might as well replace the slave and master cylinders. $60 for the two together on eBay. Easy as pie.

Here, $40 for both. Daikin brand parts, OEM quality. I think it's the same seller I bought mine from.

One other recommendation. If you're messing with the clutch hydraulics anyway, you may as well replace the soft OEM clutch line with a braided steel unit. This eliminates the curly q in the stock line, should make it easier to bleed and possibly improve the pedal feel. I didn't buy mine until after I'd already replaced the master and slave cylinders, and I have yet to go back and replace it.
