5spd swap and JDM engine swap:update

ok.. so a week ago my gaskets and some random parts came in and i thought that was going to be the weekend that she would be done...

a sweet new dryFlo filter.. and some ENEOS oil



lol

no.. i get into it and realize i need a few more random parts.. so another week goes by of me sitting on my ass waiting.. waiting...

so finally more parts came in yesterday.. and my friend and i start hooking everything up put my head on.. tranny.. everything is looking good..








I hook up my new innovative mounts.. get the motor and tranny on the hoist drop her in and hook up the side and rear mounts.. go and grab my tranny side mount and yup... doesn't fit.. I have the tranny mount for 97+ tranny and my tranny is 92-96.. hurray me..

Ok.. so i'm going to fabricate a tranny mount so i can use my innovative mount still.. going to do that monday at a friends machine shop.. so i start to hook up the half-shaft.. and wow it doesn't fit.. if i turn the shaft with the bracket away from the motor yeah it slides in like it is supposed to but when i face the bracket towards the motor its not going anywhere.. so yeah.. it won't fit.. this was at 6 05 pm.. which means every online store just closed for the weekend so i'm going to have to order the half-shaft monday.. pay like 80 bucks for over night shipping because i need this done yesterday and i need to get to settle so i can find a job.. lol.. this build is killing my savings.. my check bank account light is on and i'm about to lose it.

But other than that I've really enjoyed this experience.. i've learned a ton and am no longer afraid of my engine bay.
