I might be an idiot... but its fun so far

well.. i finally finished school and have the time to get things done.

a few months ago my tranny was going out.. so i drove very little i luckily had my sweet ruckus to rally to school on.


then about a month ago i was coming home from the casino and hell yeah.. detonation! i should have taken a pic the next morning to show the sweet trail of oil i left.. but i was too pissed off to focus.. lol.




I think this is the source of my problem




Luckily I was only a few blocks from my house..

if you haven't heard its ****ing snowing.. everywhere... and in north idaho where i live.. there is like 5 feet of snow on the ground around town right now.. maybe more who knows

So it took me a while to find a tow truck to get me from my old house to my new place with a garage.... and yup.. he ****ed it up getting it off the flat bed.. ****ed my bumper and fender.. bah!





anyway.. i've been working on it for a few days.. i've unhooked almost everything and will soon be pulling the engine.. and hopefully I'll be able to transfer most of the parts on the engine over at that point. I've been rocking the HELMS and it is beautiful. the only problem i've had so far is not having a ball joint tool.. which i just got from a friend today...

so here are some pics of my project

I can't wait for the 5 spd...

master/slave

pedals and shift housing

clutch kit and fidanza flywheel

innovative motor mounts


and the JDM motor


this is fun! lol


Oh.. and to top it off.. i got some barely used snow shoes off of an Evo 8 that the owner of my favorite sushi bar had to get rid of and buy a mini van... fail!.. but **** yeah.. 550 is a steal

Re: I might be an idiot... but its fun so far

Moving right along I had a friend come over and we unhooked all the hoses and wires.. and out she came...





and dumped fluid all over my friends garage.. lol. she's out of town so i should have it cleaned up before she gets back.

anyone need anything dealing with A/C?

i'm thinking about dropping my power steering just to make my engine bay cleaner.. but I'm worried that since i have everything unhooked I will not get all the fluid out and i don't have a compressor so i can't blow out the lines.. this is just what i think i might have a problem with from what i've seen from the how to in this site.

any suggestions??

oh

they wouldn't dyno it with the juice.. when it was an auto she hit 167.. honestly i don't see how with my cam's, pulleys, cat back, intake.. etc. but they said the AT eats power like crazy and they told me to get a 5 spd.. but wouldn't do the install.. lol it has been a bitch but i saved a ton of money by switching to MeCo.

Re: I might be an idiot... but its fun so far

got a bunch more done today.. got my shift linkage almost hooked up.. still waiting to see how the lines will run into the engine bay.

cleaned a bunch of my engine bay... i have a ton of toys in my car so my wiring situation was getting out of control.. the blue cosmetic covers were ok.. but they are making me want to puke now so.. i'm going to hide most of my wiring under the windshield wipers.

this is the cluster bomb



and this is the cleaned up version.. still working on moving some wires.. but i'm liking it much better.. and i'm excited to have ditched my A/C and Cruise.. still debating power steering.



oh.. if anyone that has done the 5 spd swap can you tell me if i need a reservoir for my master and slave.. i probably do but i'm not using the stock lines and damper.. i'm going with a steel braided strait to the slave?

my guess is i'm about 40% done... so i'm hoping for one more week..
