top mounting points are bolted to a frame thats welded to the body. for the bottoms, i bent some steel to work with bolt holes already available. ive got to re adjust for a better bolt hold, use bigger washers then rattle can.







scooped up the goodies on the left ta replace those on the right


also i found this by the ecu. any1 have an idea what this plug is?

not 100% sure but that should be the o2 voltage output.. you can run a narrowband gauge to it for a reading.

thanks brother, its hard not to rush through this semi build. I've been carless for almost 4 years, 3 of it was in the city where my fixie and Honda hawk got me to and from work and play. i now live in suburbia where u need a car to get anywhere. sux

When i picked it up last November, i thought i would strip the car down and take my sweet ass time putting it back together, yeah ok. All i look forward to now, is the day i push the pedal down and it goes. last thing i want is to go boom on that first drive, so im keeping a pace i know gives me time to attend to possible weak links as i kinda clean up the mess i paid for.

so far so good, i have about 2700(price of car included) into it. i've built road bikes twice that amount so yeah so far so good. i know i don't yap much on this thread, but i'ii make up for it in person, for im sure i'll meet a few of u and kill you slowly with endless questions.

A buddy stopped by today saw the car an said "when u gonna git that thang runnin" so i finished up the hood latch, front bumper & worked on the ic pipe routing a bit. we talked about going halvesies on a aluminum welder, we'll see(getting fed up ov waiting on people)

again so far so good, here is the remainder ov my list for those who care.

install ss brake lines
weld up ic piping
get alu 1g bpv flange
weld in flex pipe and wide band o2 bung
remove fix & reinstall rear steering hose
power steering pump rebuild
wiring to thermostat housing & fuel pump
find fuel gauge sender
install rear sub-frame bushings
build datalogger cable, pick up a palm
aaaaand... i forget.. there's always more:)

as usual i'll share as i go along.

Ade.

For the front SS brake lines, they look installed wrong. You are supposed to retain the OEM metal section that connects the lines together. And they should have a bracket that connects and wraps them around to the rear of the shock. That is probably why you have so much slack in your lines.

i did it all wrong on purpose and got rid of the oem metal section to run one ss line from the hard line to the caliper, unfortunately the front line was a bit long, rears are perfect. fortunately i ordered a shorter length, bye bye slack.

so i get to cleaning ina the trunk last night when i run into this. Hwaaaaaaa, could this be a source of a future melt down? not on my watch!

meeting up someday sounds like a plan.

the turbo oil dump tube flange isnt getting shipped till the 23 so start up gets pushed back, more time to prepare imo.

well im at this resurrection's final stages, it started up on an evo8 base tune last weekend but wouldn't idle long. log showed a bad o2(wiring). new o2 ordered, wiring is getting sorted. i also got a knock sensor dtc, replaced the sensor and cleared the code. and lastly i unpluged the evo8 maf and it ran fine!! for a few secs then it starts idle surging.

there's a way to lock the car in closed loop, but im not familiar with v3. i got an sd kit and p&p harness from ecmlink i picked up a while back and decided, i don't need no stinking maf, so a good buddy will be here sunday to tune in speed density. till then i'll sort out all its issues.

Looks good! I wouldn't run that crank pulley though. Will end up doing more harm than good. Also I would invest in some exhaust wrap for the downpipe and exhaust mani. As well as some reflective material for that upper cold side output next to the exhaust mani.
