they must have been throwing it around while it was shipping. all the packing had kinda fallen apart. haha
as of now, everything is ordered. and now im looking into the fm clutch and new wheels and tires.

then on to the brakes.

Default and so it begins.

over the past few months ive accumulated pretty much all i need. got the turbo, got the injectors, clutch, ecu, and yesterday in the mail, i got all my artech stuff.

started tearing stuff apart to get this goingggg.










this is my biggest concern to this point. i just noticed this on the turbo. does anyone thing its going to be an issue? i was so busy when it first came in i didnt even pay attention to it until i mocked up the build last night. you can see how that cylinder is kinda chipped off but the core looks like its mostly intact...any suggestions??

650cc for the fics.

and abe did amazing work. his welds are beautiful. i am so sad that nobody will really even see that once its on the car...i wanna show off his work.

and thank god on the turbo. it was late last night when i saw it and i overreacted. haha

as of now, the entire exhaust is stripped off the car. going to do the clutch today while the exhaust is out of the way so there will be a little more room.
get the clutch in today, start on the megasquirt tonight (only the install), then get injectors in hopefully tonight, and from there it should be all fun stuff.

any tips to make the clutch easier? other than using lots of extensions and joints...?

An assistant, or a transmission jack. You can benchpress it into place but getting it lined up can sometimes be a pain. I also <3 my FM clutch.

Drain your trans before you remove it, ask me how I learned that one

tranny jacks are awesome.

clutch jobs are easy with a tag team partner to perform the tranny press maneuver with.

There are tranny tail plugs that make pulling out a bit easier. Reach around and just plop it in. (tried to be dirty) Keeps the fluid from just squirting out and running down your arm or leg, depending on your position in the tranny tag team scenario. If you wanna dump that fluid for weight savings go ahead, no one is looking.

i hated helping y8s with his, I was referring to shuiends.

y8s is slow, meticulous, and thorough.

I'm fast, impatient, and take shortcuts.


Im helping him do his TB and water pump Sunday. God save us.
