Did the tear down of my donor car today , and when I was done I had a little bit of fun, See the end pics to see what Im talking about :D

This is my buddy steve givin me a hand getting the pedal assembly out.
Also have already removed all the 5spd linkage and shit.

This is how it looked after I got the tranny and axles out , yes I know the wheels are still on , I didnt take em off if you wondering
Torches are Fun.

Image

and well now that everything is out , Ill start the tear down of my car next weekend , and get the 5pd in my ride.

New parts that are going in while I do the swap are a mopar high torque performance clutch. Ill be able to hold at least 250-275hp. B&M short throw shifter. 3.5 ounce razo black chrome ball shift knob and to firm up the shifts even more, have a set of solid polyurethane shifter bushings.


oh yeah I still have a shit ton of parts off this ride , so if you need something just shoot me a pm :)

heres a couple pics of the car the mtx is going into.

After the swap it will truly be deserving of its "Speedy Turtle" name.

got her all washed up today :D

I reliesed that I never took any pictures of the rear end since I put the clear led third brake light and the vibrant rear. and yes I know its not the best pic but it'll have to do for now.

I know people dont care for the all clear tails but I wanted to keep the theme of the clear lenses all all around the car.

So I didnt get a chance to get any work down this past weekend but I didnt get a couple more parts ordered. The Real work begins this upcoming friday(The 23rd) Atx and all related parts come out friday night and saturday will be devoted to installing the mtx.

Also , I was wondering about the clutch pedal sensor. I see its not something thats "needed" . The car will start in gear without it. Thats not something that Im concered with . The car I learned to drive stick on would do the same thing , but if I dont hook it up will it throw a code?


So far the new parts going in while I do the swap are

Mopar high torque clutch(Pt Clutch)
Pt throwout bearing
Green booger bushings
Vitors Semi-Solid Bobble and mount
B&M STS
Razo 100 gram black chrome knob

So with all this I think Im doing it right the first time. Then only part I felt I was missing was the mopar PCM but that can always be added later.

anyone think Im missing anything else ?
