Turning the key in less than 2 hrs

aug 2009
, wiring is getting done soon
this is how she sits now

swapped the rs p/s pump from old motor to ej20g
had to order a oil seperator plate,fuji bond and rear crank seal for the 20g
valve cover gaskets i did a few weeks ago. not doing timing belt as it was done 6000 miles ago acording to the pimp ass jdm timing belt sticker ha
then ordering the r1819 koyo radiator,took the jdm tranny off the 20g motor, the clutch was fuxored hot spots flyheel looked ruff, doesnt matter as im using the rs tranny with it, wanted the shorter first and second gears. reusing my exedy racing clutch with the swapzorrs

thanks again
