I spent the entire day pulling the 3sfe out and dropping a 5sfe in. We dont have much left to do. Just connect the radiator, fuel lines, cruise, air conditioning and fish the harness back through the firewall. We got alot done today. I'm pretty surprised.

I need an ECU yet. If I can get ahold of one of those, my 4th gen will be back on the road by the end of the week! I'm excited!

ok so here's my progress so far. Excuse teh crappy pix. Cell phones suck

A better picture of the original damage after we pulled everything off the motor. I WILL retrieve the piston that messed up my day, perhaps tomorrow, but definitely by the end of the week.

My method of dropping an engine. Kinda nice having friends that manage the local Big10 where I can use their lift whenever I need to!

http://i145.photobucket.com/albums/r236/ajilon_photos/07-03-07_1157.jpg

This is where we quit today. Got too hot and too tired but the 5sfe is in and the bottom end is bolted up. I did discover I need to replace the rear mount and the passenger side mount. Ugh. more stuff to do!

http://i145.photobucket.com/albums/r236/ajilon_photos/07-03-07_1527.jpg

All in all, not a bad days work. We manged to pull one and drop the other in about 6 hours. I'm pretty amazed at how easy it was.

Ajilon
07-04-2007, 06:01 AM

{Philly**

Yeah I'm just teasing her. I wouldn't push a fresh swap either. especially with Gina's luck.

As for what car to bring is up to you. Both are probly a blast. I would go with whichever one handles better. I personally would pick the Corolla better gearing for twisteys.

Oh, you think that you're cute huh? She'd never choose to give you anymore than that, if that. But even if she did, that wouldn't stop me from hunting you down and killing you.

it looks like the 27th of this month. LONG DRIVE. Will take 2 days.

I only made the progress that I did because I had a high level of motivation to get it done. I don't want to trailer a dead car across the country. My friend that's helping me is awesome too. We don't fool around. I still can't believe we pulled one engine and dropped another in less than 6 hours. that's pretty amazing when it's just two people.

I think Borinal is trying to mark his territory. If he lifts his leg, I'm gonna get nervous!

Your engine exploded dude! Holy fricking crap!

And yes, this is mw outside of OT cause murg was telling me to look here to see the pic, cause if he kept pushing our car this is what would happen.

I'm not joking around. My first post was joking, but the second one was immensely heartfelt. I'm a pretty reasonable guy and I'm easy to get a long with. But there are certain buttons you don't push and levels of disrespect that I'll never stand for. Of course it's her choice, I don't own her. Granted, if she willingly did it, that would be one thing because it would say anything and everything that I needed to know about our relationship. But I have no respect for people that willingly cheat with somone or provoke it. I WOULD fucking kill you. (Or whatever resulted in the attempt for the sake of the unkown until such a mission were to be completed. But let's face it, it's not a very difficult task to acheive unless you seen it coming and put me down before I got a chance.) When somone means everything to you and they at least seemingly feel the same way back and somone else tries to defile such a beloved bond in such a manner as that you quickly fall off of the chart of respect, as far as I am concerned anyone that would do that kind of shit doesn't deserve to live. You shouldn't even persue that kind of thing or attempt to court somone. Of course there is some level of room in there if she just ISN'T happy with who she is with. But actively attempting to win somone from somone else when there is nothing seriously wrong with thier situation? You're just asking for it. I can be a bit of an extremist in that regard, because there are alot of dregs of society, and we could do without most of them. But the law is setup to protect everyone equally even those who really don't deserve to live. It's all relative to your perspective. Anyways, it's one thing if she were to come to me and say that she didn't love me anymore and she's moving on etc, etc, whatever and then decide to do whatever, that is fine. ...AND it WOULD crush me beyond belief but I would respect that. If the betrayal took place; then, it's just a matter of principal, and I wouldn't think twice about it.

I love all of you guys, don't get me wrong. But I won't stand for that shit, I don't find it funny, and I don't respect that kind of behavior. A joke is a joke but you just keep pressing buttons that you probably shouldn't. That whole attitude doesn't do shit for me. I'm not with somone unless I love them with all of my heart and would lay down my life for them without a second thought. Gina isn't just some random girlfriend to me or somone that is dating around. If any of you can't relate to loving someone that much then I feel sorry for you. It's easy to joke around, but if someone like your parents or your wife/gf doesn't make you feel the same way then you're probably one of those people that society could do without. Because it's a pretty basic and inherant instinct/feeling. Because even before her I could understand why somone might feel that way.

dood you need to calm down a lil bit.

Oh I'm calm, but that's how it is.

I understand that some of you might not know, but Gina and I are together, and THAT is EXACTLY how I feel regarding everything.

my bad bro, im not meaning to start anything, nor is anybody else. I didnt know you were with anybody, let alone gina. sooooooooooooo congrats on a cool lady friend. I could settle for a ctech hat. :hehe:

It's all good, no hard feelings. It was just the second half of the comment that set me off. The first one is fine, I can joke around. In response, there isn't enough of her to share, there is barely enough for me! But the second part is too reminiscent of a mentality that I have no respect for unless it were somone sponging off of the other person situation with no real love and it's known, maybe just being circumstancial and I know how things can be dragged out and how people that don't get the picture can be. I ignore a lot of shit, and I know most all of it has no real meaning or intent behind it. But just to be very clear that's how I feel about things. I think that could be worked out. I'm definitely up for showing my appreciation for anyone that helps me, my Gina, my friends, family, etc, even out of my own pocket! ^_^ No member is complete without the obligitory hat anyways.

Ok, i'm gonna say....... Yea.....OK

All I can say is leg humpers will be leg humpers(no condoning there behavior), as long as you and your significant other are respectful of each other, and have good relationship with great communication, this stuff shouldn't get you going, but its just my .02, and I do understand what your saying. I just feel differently looking from the outside in, you know.

you don't call me anymore!

I've been busy as hell listing my life on ebay and craigslist so I don't have to move it. Ugh. you wouldn't believe the amount of crap I've accumulated in the 4 years I've been here.

Anyway. the motor is coming along well. It'll be done as soon as Andy sends me that ECU. I'm predicting by monday at the latest.
