After being a member of the board for years, I finally decided that my dd was on her last leg and it was time to pick up another one. So I found this little gem on craigslist...







I just took some pics of the full stable, I just need them to load up to photobucket.

Thanks guys! smile.gif

Unfortunately, I bought her 'as is' so I'm basically screwed on the whole motor situation... But yea. The knock is definitely louder in person than in the vid... It's alright though, I just picked up a freshly rebuilt 5s from celicatech and I'll be dropping it in this week. biggrin.gif

I'm actually about to head down to Ohio for DSM Shootout, but when I get back I'll be posting up some more pics of the motor thats in her now, as well as the beats... smile.gif

Why not just upgrade to a 3S-GTE if the motor has to be thrown out anyway?

Custom painted heat shield and valve cover... biggrin.gif




Boosted: lmao the 5g is my original love.... Its taken me a little bit to warm up to the 6g (sorry folks)

Stranger: I know that once a finish the 'heart transplant' she'll be very reliable... That was what sold me on her............... NO RUST!!!! smile.gif

Ferdi: I've already got a 3s powered car, now I need something with some decent gas milage. Rest assured though, I have almost everything I need for a 5SFTE minus engine management.

njccmd2002: laugh.gif I didn't realize that was in the vid until later lmao

~~~EDIT~~~

Here are some pics of the sounds in case any of you are interested...

Thanks guys... biggrin.gif

I will be putting my old VC and the heat shield on the new motor. I really like how they turned out, so I'm going to keep it. It beats having a plain engine bay...

I just got home from the pole barn and I think that I made some decent progress for working by myself...

I:

Removed the harness from the old motor and installed on the new one.
Replaced the throttle body.
Pulled the tranny, clutch and flywheel.
Swapped injectors (the rail is different from the 92 'vert rail)
And moved the AC compressor and PS pump to the new motor.

Overall, I think that it was a good night's work!

Motor's in! Unfortunately, I'm hung up on getting a new fuel filter. I went to every parts store in the county and no one had a fuel filter for the car.... Unbelievable!

Anyway, here are some progress pics. These were taken Friday night....







I'll get some carnage pics up tomorrow, but the rod bearing in cylinder 1 grenaded. There's shrapnel laying at the bottom of my oil pan...


Just a little closer.... smile.gif


A little more....
