Default Finally ready!! (Motor Swap Update)

I got my Intense PCM about 10 minutes ago from UPS, now I have everything.

I already had my motor in the car, but never could get the bellhousing bolts to start, there was a 1/4 inch gap between the motor and tranny. Upon further inspection I didn't install the torque converter far enough on. So I pulled the motor back out, now with the torque converter properly installed, the motor goes back in.

I'm leaving early from work to get started, and I have the day off tomorrow. I'll finally have my car back!!!

Good deal!! What year motor/trans did you swap in again? Just wondering cause Intense obviously doesn't support the '96 PCM...

Well, engine will be in, in the morning. The car is ready and fully cleaned, and the engine is fully assembled, ready to drop in. One of my options on my PCM was removed EVAP. The entire EVAP system all the way to the hard line at the firewall is removed.

Dillcc, the car is a 96 SE swapped with a 96 L67, 98 GTP tranny (4T65e-HD), running a 97 SSEi Intense PCM. I am making the engine bay look as stock as possible, hopefully people looking at the car will not realize it'* boosted, until I blow by them. My friend has a scanner and hopefully tomorrow evening I will have it scanned to tell the KR, or lack there of.

WOOT! That was post 420!!

Glad to hear things are finally coming together, Chase.

If at all possible, I intend to get with you and Pat in January and I'd love to see it on the road. Shoot, it'* almost been a year since you started this, hasn't it?

Close to a year, I pulled the motor out of the car January 1st, New Years Day. I've finally had enough free time to work on it, and I have a garage now too.

I got everything in yesterday, now I just have to hook up certain things, like power steering, tranny hoses, radiator hoses, air conditioning, and top off all fluids. I'm getting excited, and I'll post some pictures probably tomorrow.
