Default Noob in over his head

How's everyone doing? My names Rob. I have a 90 Na that was going to be turbo'd but experienced some oil issues a month or two after I had some cams installed (HKS 256/256). So I sold off all my parts I had stashed up. And decided to go with a 1.8, but why just go with a plain jane 1.8 when I can throw in a 1.8 with vvt. So the search began and I ended up finding a decently priced motor and the seller was willing to throw in a square top aswell. Needless to say I jumped on that quick. This is where I was brought over to this glorious forum. I promptly signed up and instantly contacted reverant to get one of his awesome pnp ms units. Fast forward to today and the motor is in, almost everything is hooked up and only the small amount of wiring and splicing is left on the table. I'm looking forward to completing this swap soon and enjoying the car with it's new found power. Sorry for the long read lol.

Yea the rear has a 1.8 Torsen I believe (maybe) got it for 200bucks... But I have 4.44 gears that will be going in once the car can drive under it's own power....

Sorry about not having pics, computer is dead so I'm on mobile it's nothing fancy just a white Na that sits decently nice, with apr Mirrors and a smooth line ht
