Image
(extra bolt hole for SRT valve cover)

and the engine finally assembled :D

Image

i still gotta build the box manifold for it though :(

and the clutchpacks and whatnot for the transmission. :(

there will be a few photos when the exhaust manifold gets here in a few days

my transmission exploded :cry:

Image

Image
:lol:


i lied. progress isn't slowing down :twisted:

Image

Image

Image

Image

if you cant tell from the pics the wastegates gotta go. the downpipe need to be pushed more towards the block at the bottom. might need to relocate the wideband O2 or narrowband too... probably a good idea to get it away from the turbo anyway.. :lol:


engine is out! :D

Image

Image

and because you can never take too many pics of a sexy engine :lol:

Image

the 2.4L should be going in soon to test fit things and whatnot. i just wish i had the stuff for my ATX :cry:


motor is in! well, kinda.

Image



if i only had a heart/internals...
Image
Image

the motor is not in its final resting place... but i suspect some hammertime in the future.

Image

and on a side point, isn't the heatercore on the passengers side of the car?

some adapting will be needed to make the AC condenser fit.. but not worries there. there's practically miles of room for the fans though.
