Building of an Aristo Swap IS300 Daily Driver

As some of you know, I'm in the middle to doing an Aristo swap into my IS. I've had the motor now for about 2 months in the garage and have slowly been working on it here and there where I have time. It's been slow in coming with me being in grad school, leadership program, and full time work.

Over that time, I've been amassing parts and tools. I've picked up a band saw, tig welder, plasma cutter, brake piping bender, brake pipe cutter, motor stand, cherry picker...basically anything I can make an excuse to pickup . The wife has been somewhat understanding about it all, between all the money spent on parts and tools, the all space and time I'm taking up in the garage.

The Aristo motor has been on a motor stand and I've been doing the routine major maintenance on it so I have some piece of mind. I've changed the plugs, waterpump, seals, timing belt. From everything I've dug into, the motor seems to be in great shape.

I've finally began really tearing into the car about a week ago. Managed to pull the motor with Nafoo pretty quickly. I'm now working on swapping the harnesses and accessories between the motors.

Onto pics:

Delivery


Inspection...nice and clean


Modding begins. Permenant TTC mod


Gauges mounted


Draining fluids and prepping


Front end coming apart




Rats nest of wiring. I had previously soldered in all the EMU splices to the engine harness. Can't pull the engine harness...DOH! This was before the availability of the PnP harness. So I had to add disconnects to the ~40 wires *2 so about 80 terminals. PITA!


Motor coming out


Me


And the crew


ABS relocation

Jeez, when was there a dress code to pull a motor?

Sandals -> So I can slip into the living room quickly to jump on the computer for reference.

Socks -> To keep my feet clean


Optimized dress code for the occasion. Guess this is what happens when you have an asian nerd pulling a motor.

I noticed that you have your gauges mounted above what seems to be a flip out DVD unit. If that is the case wont you not be able to see the gauges when you are listening to music?

It would seem like a better idea to have mounted the unit below the gauges.

It's flip out HU which is slightly taller than a DIN. It barely covers the bottom edge and leaves enough space to access the button on the gauges. Not ideal IMO but good enough for the limited space.
