Link to project thread.. 7/9/13

Hey guys for those of you who dont kno me, my names Cameron. As some of you may kno this past march i was deciding on whether to buy and do a Beams swap or a 3rd GEN 3sgte swap. well when buying a set of sideskirts off of Dustin and Stef, i got the privelage of driving both there Beams swap and Dustins 3rd Gen swap. the Beams a very fun car and altho i honestly wasnt used to the power the 3rd gen put out, it was clear to me for the same money i could have a fast and fun 3rd gen.

Sooo... i talked to my friend Manny and asked who to go to for a 3rd gen set and he sent me to Jim and went from there. i actually recieved my motor the same day as Manny did, (since we live 20min from each other, his swap just went a lil faster then mines to complete since ive been going paycheck to paycheck since ive bought the motor to finish everything lol)

so this is what i got from jim and my progress since getting it. (Alot of the pics were just refrence pics for myself as i was going along so sorry of some of the pics r kinda stupid lol)

when it came off the truck..



i didnt buy the set with the TMIC so this is what i really got after Jim took the TM off lol


these are all cellphone pics so srry if quality isnt the best at times














last time the timing belt was done lol reads February 28, 2002 according to vince. and its like roughly 37k miles



then i started to take things apart to clean the motor up a bit and start refreshing it.. i missed out on some pics here and there but here is what i got

took the manifold off and took a page out of Mannys build and shaved the manifold a bit.. didnt take pics while i was doing it tho

after i sanded and clean the manifold b4 paint



Throttle body b4 cleaned and painted




manifold b4 clear coated.. forgot to take a pic when it was finished..




Preparing valve cover



after clear coat






then disaster... as i was taking the AWD tranny off i cracked my upper oil pan just under the clutch dust cover.. (this is my first swap... and ya, i made a mistake lol)






thats next on my list of things to do lol .. its not that bad of a fix tho honestly, it can b fixed with the pan on the motor which is what i will b doing.

new berk 3in fully loaded DP







and as she sits now biggrin.gif



also some other part info..

Mannys old FMIC from his 5FSTE which i will be using for my FM set up
pics upside down lol


resurfaced flywheel



and as for the rest, my water pump should come in tomorrow so i can do my T-belt and pump, IC piping is on its way (2.5in) .. i also have a 3in electric cut out i will be using, a HKS SSQV black BOV, Devils own WI, and a prosport premium boost gauage..

last thing on the list is Tweaks stage 4 6 puck sprung comp clutch (keeping my s54 tranny). and 3" piping for my b-pipe.

the swap should happen towards the end of this month, hopefully in a few weeks or so.

comments and questions if any biggrin.gif
