Cool! Took me a minute to figure out who's build this was. Good to see your log JR. Where did you pick up your engine?
Japan of corse......no really, got it from a company that came highly talked about. If anyone is looking to get a motor as well PM me and I will give you the contact info. This guy and his wife, both japanese, actually go over to japan and hand pick each motor. They personally do all the inspecting and compression test them.
This is how thorough they are.....80% of all the motors they bring back are auto because they are the ones that actually pass all there compression tests and inspections. Then they just buy 5 spd tranny's seperate because an auto and manual motor are identical.
My motor was actually an auto. It was sent to me with the auto flywheel and tor plate.
Makes me feel good that my motor was not ragged on, passed a personal inspection and compression test, and was hand picked.
The guys are also very interested in the build.
I will take some more pictures later. I almost have the rear subframe on.
PS THANKS ROD for all the help you have given me. I copied you and ordered the teflon coated black max heim joints from summit. They are pricy, but I am hoping that with the teflon coating they will last and be functional for a long time!
