Phase 1 of 5 Completed
So my dad and i got the clip in it's entirety on some harbor freight dollies, and instead of putting the engine and all that from the top.. we decided to take the clip away from the engines and trans and whatnot.
Was surprisingly easy. Definitely doable with two, might i say strong, people.
Pulled it up and over and away from the garage for now.. wheeled the rest of the parts into the corner and got my father's car in the garage. Will be able to wheel it right back out tomorrow to crack the engine from the trans and start moving things over.
Pictures per usual:
After disconnecting EVERYTHING (and taking a TON of pictures) it looked a bit like this:
Then it was all like this:
And i was all like "Oh Emm GEE!" at this:
(Wicked bad picture)
Guess that's all for now, though I have a couple questions:
Halfshafts for JDM trans. Will they go right into the 98 RS hubs, or do i need to move the STi ones over right now?
JDM trans (electrically) plug and play? To my knowledge it is.
If i need to move the STi ones now, can i use the turbo x member w/ the 2.5L as is? (To avoid having to swap hubs over and yucky stuff, like taking axles out)
My plan is to get the, Transmission, Clutch (+ MC), Brakes (+MC), diff, full rear suspension and hubs, and driveshaft over to the car by about this time next week. As of 8:55PM today i am on Spring Break and am not (to my knowledge) expected to be anywhere that i need my car for.
Oh, and referring to my Phase 1, here are the 5 Phases I have planned.
Phase 1: Getting drive train and other bits separated from the clip
Phase 2: Getting the drive train minus engine into car
Phase 3: Harness Merge
Phase 4: Getting the EJ20 into the car
Phase 5: Debug
That's all for now.
