AnotherNewb, your offer is greatly appreciated. But I figured I should throw up something better than cell phone pics. So I ran over to a friends house and borrowed his computer.

Ok folks, here's some pics.



This photo shows my AFPR mounted, the DSM clutch reservoir, Non-ABS proportioning valve, non-cruise throttle cable.



This image shows the general state of disassembly of the car.



An "aerial" view of the engine. You can see the fuel gauge mounted on the fuel rail, FP exh mani, Hyundai V/C.



This shows the FP Green, O2 housing and Tial MV-S wastegate, the WG water feed line that I fab'd.


Another view of the wastegate with the water line.

And some more.


There's the NOS solenoid for the I/C sprayer, taken during the mock up stage.



Here is a pic of the nitrous rail we (my neighbor and I) made for the I/C sprayer.



This shows the new oil cooler mounted up. The brackets aren't finished yet.



I just like this pic. There's nothing like staring into the snout of a big turbo.

There's a few new things to update.

First of all, I'm an idiot. I went to bolt up the OFH, tightened the wrong bolt first, and cracked the damn thing.

And I forgot to set the block on the bench after putting the crank back in, which means that I forgot to put the rear main seal and retaining plate on, and now I have enough stuff hanging off of the engine that setting it on the bench by hand isn't really an option now. I guess I'll try to weasel it in there, otherwise I'm going to have to hook up the hoist and attach it with the engine in the air.

Also, I snapped the heads off of three turbo bolts. I've never had that happen before, let alone three times in a row. I've picked up some freshies from the dealer so hopefully they'll work.

Not yet, but I haven't tried bolting the CAS up yet. Are you running the proper bolts for that V/C? The only thing I can think is that you don't have the correct shouldered bolts and the valve cover isn't locating itself on the head correctly because of it.

Well PreskitVR4, I looked at both of my Hyundai valve covers and I see what you are refering to now. It appears the the area surrounding the bolt closest to the crankcase vent tube is protruding out towards the CAS mounting area. I will probably just kiss my valve cover with a sanding disc and an angle grinder to alleviate the issue. Good catch though, I'm not sure I would have noticed it otherwise.

The timing belt and water pump are now on the motor, as well as the throttle body. I've finalized the water lines for the wastegate, and welded up the unused ports on the water pipe. Right now my biggest hurdle is money. The nickel and dime stage is here in all its fury. Clamps, hoses, fluids, nuts and bolts, filters, belts, miscellaneous gaskets, etc, all add up fast. But once next weekend rolls around the motor and trans should *hopefully* be in the car again. The light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter.

Damn it got cold in the Denver area today. I had to call off the late night wrench session I had planned. I did work on it until about 7 though, and I will definitely have the engine in the car tomorrow. I have the compressor housing out with a friend. He is modifying the outlet to better serve my piping needs, and it should be back by in my hands around noon tomorrow. Once its back, the exhaust manifold/turbo assembly will be bolted on for the last time, and then the motor is coming of of the engine stand.

Hey thanks GSX_TC. This is the first time in the nearly 6 years that I've owned this car that I've been able to take my time and make sure things are exactly how I want them. I'm glad that the few of y'all who have commented are leaving positive remarks.

As it were, today wasn't nearly as productive as it could have been, but life happens. I did, however, accomplish my goal of having the engine/trans back in the car, and I'm really happy with how my compressor housing fits with the modifications that were made. It isn't the most ideal of sitituations when overall flow is being considered, but the Galant engine compartment isn't the most ideal of situations when it comes to space. I have some phone pics that can go up if someone is willing (AnotherNewb?).

It does feel great having made it this far, and now the goal is to turn the key next weekend. With all of the little stuff that still needs done, it'll be several weeks until I can call this round of mods complete, but I should be able to take her around the block sooner than later.

This list is off of the top of my head, but here is what is remaining to do BESIDES the engine install.

Attach brackets for rear bushing on front control arms.

Bleed brake system

Install custom made pod for gauges, and install the gauges.

Wire in SAFC2.

Re-do battery tray in trunk. -DONE

Move fans from old radiator to new one.

Make the oil cooler lines. -DONE

Make the fuel feed and return lines. -DONE

Make a new, less gawdy air box for I/C.

Fab up new filter to turbo inlet pipe.

Wire fender lights and reinstall fenders.

Install bottle for I/C sprayer

Install new "coupler" in t-case

Finish brackets for oil cooler. -DONE

Take to dyno for tuning.

And probably more that I can't think of right now.

I knew this whole thing was going way to smooth. I started tinkering with some stuff last night and realized that one of my shift cables was broken. So I'm looking at one more thing left to get done. I don't even care about the money anymore, because at this point another couple hundred bucks is such a small fraction of what I've already invested, buying new cables feels about like buying lunch. I'm just going to do it, cause I'm hungry, and if I don't do it, I won't get to eat. I need to eat, my friend's 436 awhp 2G, and my neighbor's 582 fwhp Honda Civic, and Evo's and STi's will be the appetizer.

I thought about used. I actually have a set. But used when these cars are this old doesn't seem appealing. I don't want to do this again in six months, let alone hurt my transmission again because I cheaped out.
