Wiring takes forever ,especially since Ive never done anything this in depth.
Some of the connectors i decided to crimp and soldier my own ends because i had to buy the connectors anyways.
The intake manifold is on for good now , I received my tensioner pulley yesterday so i put it on and found a belt to fit
I don't know how anyone else has done it but i found drilling a hole in the floorboard is the best way to bleed the clutch , there was no way i was going to be able to get a socket on the bleeder otherwise.
I think most peoples swaps have the engine further forward.
my custom clutch assembily feels amazing , im curious why everybody uses 7/8'' master cylinders ? the 3/4" disengages it fully and im sure its much easier on your leg...
This car is going to be my daily only for a little while. Im probably going to buy a older diesel vw jetta, or a ls400. im going to keep this car street legal but slowly build it into my drift/ time trials car
by having two sets of adjustable front suspension that are aligned how i want them and making all of the factory adjusters fixed in place. That way i can change set ups without re aligning the car.
so all of the factory radio, airbags and heat/ac are getting removed ,i will be leaving the defroster ducting on the bottom side of the dash and connecting it to 2 12v electric heater/ blowers so it is still streetable. iv driven cars without any heater and really hated wiping the windshield every 30 seconds when it was raining
Having the Firewall cleared off is going to make it 100% easier to modify the gas pedal to work with the gm cable
Btw those are factory power seat brackets that i modified to work on a bucket seat , they move forward , back and tilt
The efi harness is ready to put in the car , just need to connect the water temp sender, and crank position sensor at the right length
not sure if im going to use the Lexus engine cover , there's just so much custom shiny stuff all over the place that it doesn't look factory , i might look for a cover that came on a Lexus v8 when everything else is done.
