I learned the hard way that it'* a good idea to tap the front of the oil pan and not the back.

Been doing some work on the car in spurts and have an update. Everything is hooked up except for the top coolant hose. That'* in need of a couple connectors and then it'* coolant time. Trans fluid took me a bit of time to add, the only funnel I could find small enough to fit in the Glorkar tube was pretty darn small and flow through it was slow.

Found a couple of vacuum caps that had dry rotted out. Replaced them with fresh ones, before the turbo could blow them off. Zip tied on for safety just like Ben had.


It'* almost time

Not to be ridiculous, but I fully expect this to be in the mid-12s. Turbochargers are hideously awesome!

Turbo'* tend to be faster at the top end than a supercharged car and a little slower off the line (until one learns how to brake boost). Overall they are known to build more power.

Nearly the last update. That'* right, I drove the car out of the garage under it'* own power tonight. The only things left are programming, adding a little buffer to the top radiator hose and a test drive to ensure it goes into all forward gears. I saw nothing inside of the trans that suggests it won't work perfectly.

Pulled the old trans apart to change the input shaft. Found a non-hardened 4th hub shaft with a factory 1999 date on it. Chains were good, I replaced the input shaft and 4th clutch hub shaft. Also found one of the valve body shift solenoid valves to not have it'* retaining clip. Not a big deal, clearly someone was inside. That 99 shaft doesn't make sense though. The rebuilder had to know that those shafts weren't hardened and replaced it with another soft shaft.
97 on the channel plate/valve body denotes a 97 casting

Buttoned the trans back up and all that is left is programming.

The car awaits Andrew'* return.
