wow long time for update, kinda got annoyed with photobucket and super busy with life i haven't posted much but i do have pictures.

to get everyone up to speed, engine is in 5 speed swap is completed and harness is in, but there was issues that still need resolved with a few woops wrong plug i merged.

i had fuel pressure, spark and the engine fire on starting fluid.

i probed around and found that the injectors were not getting power, after a few days of going wth and asking multiple ppl including the supplier of the merged harness i found this with some trouble shooting.

i found the yellow wire with blue strip that supplied power, it was merged into a plug but he had thought that it should just need plugged in. ( it has been two years since he did the harness)





the mate to the plug, see a difference...


then i got looking, maybe it was merged into the wrong plug. these wires go up to the cluster and dash, but the plugs are similar.


the plugs from the dash/cluster, i see i have two extra wires merged into this plug.

Only a little bit of extra wear on the transmission.



In other news, might actually get a real test drive this weekend if everything goes to plan.

getting closer and the to do list is getting shorter, maybe just maybe an actual drive this weekend.




i know space up front was going to be close, but having to do belts will be no worse than doing spark plugs.

No test drive this weekend, customers come first.

But I did install these custom bushings I made on the lathe for the intercooler since I couldn't find the rubber mounts.

After a year and half of building my car it has finally saw daylight and it's first test drive.

Only a few small things to go over such as a soft clutch, alignment being out and oh yeah the turbo sounds like a screaming pterodactyl at full boost.

sweet. now quick, back inside before it rusts

yep, went back inside once i swept the floors.

there is a little bit of rust on the quarters, so i give the cars a few more years until i don't care about it and drive it all the time.
