The situation sucks but it's nice when it turns into a nice time for upgrades.

Cant wait to see it on the ground.

Sorry to hear that you had to end up replacing the motor, but it seems like you got a great deal on a bunch of great parts. I like how you're taking your time to go through the car while this work is being done and really get everything to your liking. Can't wait to see some more updates on the progress and this thing running again!

Thanks fellas. I'm giddy to be able to basically restore the car to a point where I'm not worried about it breaking down or developing any major issues. I've seen how a lot of other guys build their cars, the corners the cut, and I'm not really about that. I feel like if I'm going to invest my time in something, I should do it right the first time. I dunno.

That's the way builds should be done

It looks like you have rigid subframe collars in first engine out picture; are those reusable or do you have to get new ones when you drop the subframe?

Thanks man! Yeah, the rigid collars are still installed. They SHOULD be reusable, considering the size of the holes has not changed. I'll reapply copper assembly grease when I mate the subframe with the car again. If a problem arises, I'll bring it up here.

Hey Dennis! Yeah, unfortunately the motor swap wasn't something I wanted to have to do, but that's life I suppose.

Dang, I don't remember if you said, but how high did the temperature gauge get? I know it's relatively worthless on an AP1 but did it get higher than 4 squares? Oh and when are you putting them Daytons on the S? That'd be doooope
