hows the healing going man?


cant believe you got a Racepak before me!! Did you place it in front of the stock cluster or did you make a panel for it?


It's going well, the doctor cleared me for 100% weight bearing so I can finally ditch the crutches.. still have the knee brace for another couple months lol

Yeah it was an expensive venture but well worth it. I made a panel for it in front of the stock cluster. Cut a slot in the top surround and on the panel there's a tab that it pairs with. and the shroud that goes around the ignition across the top of the steering column locks it in place.

I guess I should update this thread..

2 days after the above post ^ I was hit by a car on my motorcycle. I was at a stop sign and the party at fault (late 20's/early 30's male) failed to pay attention and turned into my lane and hit me head on at about 25mph. Sent me and my bike back about 20 feet from where I was stopped. The bike was totaled and my right knee took the brunt of the force tearing 3 of the 4 ligaments. Been dealing with lawyers and insurance since and it's finally almost over with pending my surgery scheduled for next week.

That being said, I've had a lot of downtime and limited funds but with the dust settling things are looking up, recently made a lot of progress and shes 95% ready!

Pretty bay:

(****ty plastic fuel filter has since been changed and a temporary shorty intake has been thrown on)

Rear header in the works:


From the front header:


Custom y-pipe:


Back half:


Flowmaster and tip:


Just idling she sounds pissed.. lol

Installed this last week:


Glove box set up (definitely needs to be reworked a bit):


Still to come:


Currently she's running stupid rich but that's due to a map that was thrown together in like 5 minutes just to get her started.
After my surgery, we'll get some tuning in and about 2 weeks or so from now she'll be cruising the streets thumbsup.gif

Got it started Tuesday! biggrin.gif

Had our guru make a house call to help make sure we had everything correct before initial fire up.
Before he showed up we were about 180* off on the timing in the software... /facepalm

Still need to get a timing light on it to make sure were set there.
Followed by the wideband install and then tune.

She sounds burly on open headers and untuned lol.

There wasn't as much chaos as it looks in the video, just had a temporary switch powering the ecu so our tech was telling me to shut it off but i was telling the to hit the switch is all lol...

Anyway here you go! -->VIDEO<--

Got it to turn over after a bit of issues with the tranny, flywheel.

>> Video <<
(straps were there for when we removed the tranny, pass side and driver side motor mounts were installed)

woot.gif

Just a few wires for the fuel pump, grounds and ignition and she should be good to go..
And also the a/c lines, p/s lines and lower radiator hose.

I did a retrofit!
My thread for it is >HERE<

Used Morimoto mini's from The Retrofit Source
And plastic lenses similar to the ones you linked to on eBay (which will probably be your best bet)

same for kurt's 5s! haha

I just don't even know... How in the Hell did it grenade like that? Anyway, at least it gave you a good excuse for a 1MZ swap.

i literally made a wall of smoke across a 4 lane highway it was so bad.
she could have kept going too but i pulled off to the center lane

Was wondering when I was going to see this update lol

wow your engine boom did some crazy damage!

and the 1mz looks like a very good start. glad you didn't go with those rep 5s.
good luck with the swap!

Thanks man!
Yeah it's crazy to think had my tire failed as it should have my car would probably still be running.. bittersweet really

Well 6gc, it's been awhile.. logged on here or there but nothing much.
My car has remained the same for the past year or so..

Then on one fateful day I was driving to work and nailed a big ass rock on the highway, pulled off the road checked the rim and didnt see anything (at the time) no hissing or air leak..

however it did this:



..And it held air with no vibration or issues so i continued on to work.. came home, no issues.. drove to my second job, no issues..

Then on my way home again around 11pm not my tire, but my ENGINE went BOOM frown.gif



Towed it home, waited a couple days pulled the engine apart and checked out the damage (thats also when i discover the rim damage):

crank


rod and bearings



So after about 2 weeks of sulking and looking for a rep 5s i came up with a 2 local choices at 600k miles and one with 212k and rust in the head..
Tried looking in two nearby cities and found nothing good for a 5s rep.


Eventually went with the swap that I had been talking about for a long time..

Now I am going V6, in the form of a 1mz.

Got the motor home:


On the stand:


Popped the top:


She is CLEAN!
The bottom end is just as clean!

Taking the heads down to get resurfaced tomorrow.

Got all new gaskets, new water pump.
Will be deleting all emmissions crap.
Fidanza Flywheel is on it's way.
As well as the Southbend Clutch Kit.
Got ARP flywheel bolts.

More pics to come.

So excited. biggrin.gif
