Thanks for the compliments guys, I hooked up most of the wiring today. I need to do a tton of little things and hook up my PS lines and fuel lines and I should be ready to start it up!

Id like to get to at least one meet this summer before I move.

I had to re-rent a cherry picker because I couldnt manage to get the trans on under the car, long story but whatever.

Positioning trans

The 2 threaded holes for the xmember on the drivers side were stripped and shallow so I have the pass side bolts in and tapping these out

Hoping this wont be an issue

chain caught on my injector..fuck

fucked up the valve cover in a few places

Bolted in

I didnt realize how far 2nd back was, short throw necessary thumb up



I have to cover my VC because my hood hits it when I close it, Ive read the engine sits slightly higher on nismo mounts but Im still not sure about how high it should sit-maybe its my hood? Advice welcome..


Installing gauges today or tomorrow, maybe not I have finals tues & thurs so we'll see.

Teardrops are staying until after coils, Im still looking at them but focused on getting the car running and on the road first.

Stance & PBM are the 2 I am considering, but I need $$ first lol
Oh and Rota P45Rs are at the top of my list for wheels.

here's a tip to anyone swapping motors.
Go to a pick-n-pull and grab the engine hoist hooks of any toyota you find. That way you won't fuck up your shit with the chain.

I can get tthem to line up, but the threads in the chassis are shallow, so the bolt wont catch.

Could a mod move this thread to the build section please.

I have been workin on the car as much as possible when I am working 50+ hrs and the weather has been complete shit lately. The good news is that it isnt 12 colors anymore, bad news is that its 2 colors still. I need an SR tstat housing before I can start it, after that I should be golden.

No pics yet, its taking forever because I am working 60hrs/week and its been hotter than shit lately plus the bugs in my neighborhood are out of control so its difficult to work outside.

I think I need a new relay because I have constant power flowing to the starter as well as the rest of the car, so Ill be having a friend go to Nissan and snag it for me because I work 8-6 daily. Hopefully running vids soon.
