I'll just post pics:










I took this picture because this is by far the busiest side of the motor. There'* water lines, fuel lines, oil lines, the kickdown cable can be seen squeezing between the downpipe and the crossover pipe. Anyway, I hate this part. This side of the motor. It'* accounted for a blood blister and two busted knuckles.

On the bright side, this is the first time I've ever removed and installed an engine in one day. Not to mention that my hands are barely dirty, that'* a first.

Hope to fire it up again tomorrow night after class. I've got a lot of tuning to do just to get it to idle.

Well, my Im not getting a signal from my o2, but otherwise the car runs excellent. Still working on getting the idle down, my IAC doesn't seem like it wants to respond sometimes, but I'm getting there! Going to fix the o2 sensor and then I'll put up a video.

Yea, it'* a terrible location. It sits right in front of the throttle body making it very difficult to run charge pipes. It will be relocated to in front of the catalytic converter (well, where it would be) as soon as I can find the money to buy a WBo2. That'* the best place to put one on a turbo charged vehicle.

Well, the IAC just plain isn't responding. So I set it manually and unplugged it. I've got about a 800-900rpm idle now. I also installed a heated o2 so now I'm getting some readings.

Here is a WOT vid, you can tell the engine still needs a lot of tuning, but I'm getting there.
