Pulled my engine/trans today.
From cracking the rad cap to the engine/trans sitting on the floor took almost exactly 5 hours.
Just me with breaks every hour. :D

Replaced the shifter cables too.
Waiting on the clutch...

Yeah, well my goal was to keep the car..... :hehe:

Just OEM with a Spec PP.
I don't like aftermarket clutch discs unless I'm running high hp.

My trans froze up. Somehow in 2 months it chewed through the gear oil [no leaks] and ran dry.
Oh well, I have 7 others. I can make do. :D

Yeah, after pulling stuff off my car multiple times, I have deffinately gotten used to what need to be taken off first, and what tools I need. Took off the turbo assy and everything behind it in less than an hour.

If you're really lazy, you can just do the bare minimum, and just pull the wires off as you're lifting the engine out. Not too recommended though. Yaay for no ceased bolts.

I don't know if I would have accepted that clip from your importer. Something about it says bad mojo. I'm not one for superstition. Just something about it that wouldn't seem right.

see the funny part was I got it for less due to all the exessive blood.. unfortunately my digi cam did not work at that moment..



funniest part was that was in my red mr2.. and that was by far the best 3sgte I ever had running.

Im on the right at 12psi.. and nothing else.. stock exhaust and intercooler with 205/45/15s I ran this.. this was the day after I got the swap completed lol.
