Gay seller + stupid paypal rules + greedy CC = no motor.

Since I already told my boss I'm taking Monday off, I went to SD instead. Drive there was boring (75mph speed limit was fun), but once there I was amazed by awesome the roads were. I wish I had took the 240 there Sad

Now I get to sit and wait for my motor to get here.

Maybe you should do a write up for chicagos14T on how to put a LS motor into a s14. Maybe a buget list too, eh?

buget? no such thing in my vocabulary.
if I think I want it, I get it and make sure its overkill.

who is chicagoS14T?

as of now, getting shit welded up is going to be next big step.
crossmember, exhaust, headers, motor mounts, engine mounts and stitch weld the chassis more.

I was hoping for end of May to have this thing done, but we had few delays already.

I'm not in a rush to get it, but on the other side, I want to drive it now.

Oh yeah, forgot to mention, looks like I got lucky and ended up with a nice Hurst shifter.
I can't wait to pop the trans open and see what clutch is in there.

lots of progress today.
engine got stripped of all the unneeded emissions crap, AC, exhaust manifolds are off and took the wiring off as well as the trans.
Once I did that, I saw a new Spec clutch/flywheel setup and shit was still looking good, so I am very happy. Saves me another $400+ for the LS7 clutch. The heads have aftermarket steel headgaskets and stampings on them, so a little more investigating will go into it, especially with someone who can access the fuel maps. Hoping those suckers are milled.
Popping off the oil pan next week, we have the engine on the stand but it was getting late/early (depending on how you look at it).



As far as the car itself, rear suspension got buttoned up, slapped some wheels on. Took the dash out, to find more wiring voodoo and crazy cut cables. How this car didn't catch on fire is beyond me. This car needs rewiring big time.

I'll post up some pics up tomorrow.

yeah, if I pop it open and there are ARP bolts in the rods, that means someone went through the engine, just as looking at the fuel/ignition maps to see what was messed around with. I am especially interested to see what cam its got, I just don't want to pull it to see.

As far as pics, I tend to work on the shit more than try to take them, so I always take them after most of the work is done.
Besides low light and camera phone - shitty pics


The motor started off on the crate, but that didn't last long
Motor on the engine stand and trans standing up against the wall.

Fuel rail after - pointing to the right side.


Crossmember is off, going to get modified this week.
Car is no longer a roller. Sad
Brake master is off, looking for a Z32 replacement, Booster is off, working on mounting the CMC.
Rear hubs need trimming of the tabs to fit correctly with Z ebrakes.
Fuel filter/regulator is done, need -6an fuel lines.

While waiting for Vin, to get some pics up:
here is the piece that needs to get chopped from the rear hubs if you're going for the Z brake setup.



At first I thought that the bolt holding the brakes together will fit just fine in the hole, but it turns out that the hole is off by 1/4 inch or so, so than I just decided to chop a small piece off, enough for the bolt to go through. That again didn't work as the whole hub was moving (toe in/out)

Nothing a cutoff tool won't fix, plus we get to make lots of sparks. Very Happy


and here's the beauty that will be doing my cross member
