i'm back..new/old project lol..

what up ya'll... some of you know me.. some don't.

It's been an interesting year for me..

i did my auto to manual swap..
moved to seattle..
hooked up with a hottie.. still going strong.. yeah me!
finally making money in seattle..

but.. about 4 months ago.. a small problem cause in my opinion by my stupid friend.

he hooked up my power steering and the pulley had a slight wobble..

i said is that cool? he's the mechanic.. i'm still learning but i'm not an idiot.. i know science.

he's like yeah.. no biggie

7000 miles after the swap.. no more engine.. why? because that little wobble made a big wobble on the crank pulley(<----physics)... it wobbled itself off one night of hard driving.. fail!!!

so i've been saving... just driving my sisters bmw.. lol.. i'm too lucky

just bought a 97 prelude for 2 grand.. gonna grab the engine and tranny.. cause when i did my swap i got an older tranny from a 92-96 and the mounts were different.. no one told me this.. so now my 97+ tranny will mount up proper with my innovative mounts.

sorry about the long post.. and not keeping true to my prelude crew.. just been busy.. and missing my baby.

but soon.. maybe after 2 two day sessions in the next few weeks i'll be able to drive her again.

wish me luck.. this time it will be all me so i have no one to blame if something should go wrong. lol..

and for those of you still reading.. i've got mad parts of this 97 i'm jacking the engine out of.. auto to manual swappers?? lol.. shift linkage.. control arm.. pedals.. yup yup.. i'll post them up in the for sale section next week after i tear into my project.

oh.. and i just read the post from Francelh22a.. that gave me a good laugh.. you can't tune an auto ecu.. i think someone finally said it.. but that should have been the first response..

Re: i'm back..new/old project lol..

if only the crank pulley fell off, than that's not really such a big deal. but if the lower timing gear also came off......
