Picked up 866/1000 shell this evening. Plans are to bring all the stuff from 1025 ( is super clean) and give that shell to my son to take all the stuff from 100/2000. 100 has too much rust. We will strip 100 down and scrap it. The guy I got the shell from my take the front clip from 100 and use it for his (the rust is on 100 are the frame rails. The front clip is pretty clean).

866 is supposed to have a good 4-bolt in it, gonna have to verify the juices to see how it was treated. us now to decide when to sell the rims and what to with my extra ECMLink V3 ECU that came with the shell.

The wife and oldest son checking out the new shell.





More pics of the shell:

Nice scoop, dude. That's gonna be a lot of work swapping everything over.

My advice would be to take your time and clean and paint everything now while the shell is still bare. It'll be worth it in the end.

Not even starting until after the shootout. I only expect the swap to take 1 week (to include a weekend). I have done a lot more in less time, but this won't be rushed. It will honestly take longer to swap gauges/stereo and wiring than all the hardware stuff

Started working on thinks to get the swap from 1025 accomplished.

Brembo's cleaned and rotors with a fresh cut (last cut they can have)



New elbow with IAT bung welded (found a local guy, $20 per weld)


Soldered the 2gMAF connector in for use with the SD kit from ECMTuning. (MAF plug was missing and I only had a 2gMAF plug, so I am running with it.)


Discovered the CAS plug was missing and TPS connector was toast:



New plugs soldered in (from Sheridan via ExtremePSI)


New quick-connect injector plugs to be soldered on tonight:


I expect the front sub-frame to come out tonight (will be swapping in my front/rear complete sub-frame assemblies from 1025)

Gwendolyn came with a nice set of 17" Rota Sub-Zero's. I figured out why they were on there. They had security lugs on, and no key came with the car. None of my current keys worked. I was able to use a 19mm 12-point socket on the front two wheels, but the rears were stripped. So, turbo socket to the rescue. Got the security lugs off real easy, now to pull the drive-train from Gretchen (1025) so I can swap over the front and rear sub-frames.

Motor and front subframe from 1025 is in Gwendolyn. Discovered an almost seized ball-joint, so new control arms/balljoints and stab-links are on the way! Today I am swapping out the braided brake lines with the factory hard lines and braded line combo's so they will work with the brembos.

New shifter bushings and Symborski's. Shifting should be nice and tight now.
