The terbo likes this cold air.
...I just hope it lasts till spring.
ordered my hood struts last week and installed them yesterday. The bushing that holds the oem prop broke apart from age....so the prop would fall out of place while driving and almost hit the alternator belt....I've been just keeping it in the backseat to use whenever I need it.
I'm lazy and used all the factory bolt holes for the brackets. Eventually I'll mount the lower ones closer to the hood so it lifts the hood higher but meh...it's good for now. Sooo much easier than the prop.
I also did an oil change this weekend, and changed out the last section of hose at the fuel filter....I had the wrong type of 5/16" and it didn't fit 100% resulting in the smallest fuel leak possible.
And I finally got some time to start taking apart the old ej22....poor thing has been sitting outside since the summer. Nothing was wrong with it, but I'll clean it all up and see if it's useable for the next GC.
Also...the PS and AC brackets from the ej22 fit the ej205. So I'm cutting/shaving as much as I can from each, and painting them before I transfer them to my car. The brackets are bulky so this will clean up the bay a bit more.
Here's the "PS bracket" so far....it's only using 2 of the mounting holes...I'm thinking it should be fine since it only holds the alternator. I already have a cut PS bracket on my engine now...but I cut a LOT more off this one.
Every pound counts at this point.
