Yesterday I was really hoping to at least try to turn over the motor but found more missing parts.

First, I am missing my secondary 02 sensor so I ordered one off Amazon today and it'll be here Wednesday. Also found that the aftermarket uppipe that came with the motor doesn't have a EGT sensor so I researched and found plugging it with a bolt works. Also missing the OEM pipe that connects to the factory BOV so I'll have to order that Monday morning.

Updated list... hopefully will try and start the car Wednesday or Thursday night. Do yourself a favor and never buy a motor from Pmpautogroup on NASIOC. I just hope this motor starts and runs okay at this point.

Things left to do:
-Install OEM BOV pipe
-Install secondary 02 sensor in downpipe
-Plug up-pipe with bolt
-Install TMIC
-Re-install dash bar
-Re-connect battery
-Top off coolant after starting motor

Installed the secondary 02 sensor in my downpipe last night, did the resistor mod and plugged the hole in the uppipe. Finally took the car off the jack stands, car needs corner balanced and aligned still. Going to try and start it tonight if I can solve my perrin inlet to stock BOV pipe issue.

Engine bay update shot.

-Still waiting on the piece from Perrin so I haven't put the intercooler bracket on, that is why the intercooler looks angled in the picture.
-Found the fans are not turning on which may cause the engine to overheat. Tried connecting the two green diagnostic plugs to get the fans to turn on, nothing.
-Got the brakes bled on Sunday so they are good to go.
-P&L told me each exhaust is built to order so maybe I'll have it at the end of the week or next week sometime.

It has held up extremely well. People are always touching it when they peek inside the car to see what it feels like, haha.

Unfortunately the guy who made my cage had no choice but to saw the dash in half. I really hate how they cut it up, other people tell me it looks fine but I guess it is my OCD.
