been dumping all my cash into 1405 for the past coupple months, just waiting on one
silicon coupler and some tbolt clamps to arrive, need block off the rear steer do to a leak
in the mess of lines in the back, and last but not least i have to put a cat and resonator on
to please the local piggys/inspection station.
the car had a lot of cob jobs done to it when i got her (whos dsm didnt), Ive pretty much been
through everything under the hood.
here is a pic of the engine bay before i started.
cant see much but she us in poooor shape. there where no blots holding the timing cover on so it was rubbing against everything, it
also had NO timing shileds installed. theres a 57trim t4 with stock injectors LOL (vpc etc was stripped before i got it) also stock head bolts...
The ic pipes where 1/2 aluminum and 1/2 rusted exhaust pipe with non boost safe fake silicon coulpers/ worm gear clamps.... the bov location was horrible
and most of the coolant hoses where loose. most if not all the vaccume lines where loose and or leaking.
thank the dsm gods that i got to this one before it was too late.
