    Its in baby!

    Oh baby!! I got my motor in!! Even with extreme back pain that bitch is in there. Although, I have found it impossible to get my tranny mount to line up. So I am just going to not hook it up









    Im kidding. The welded nuts are really messed up and the bolts are just getting screwed up, on top of that, I think I might have the rotation off from the poly when I installed the insert and that is keeping me from getting it lined up. Regardless, 3SX has got a sale going on the POLY tranny mount for $40 so I just said fuck it. But at least its in!!!

    Sometimes you have to play with the engine a bit to get the tranny mount in place. An engine hoist really helps. You just have to move the engine around a bit until you can get the tranny mount in place.

    Sorry if someone saw something weird here This is a thread about engine installation and some how some off topic stuff got merged in. Must be just new forum issues.


    I've cleaned the crap out carry on.

    Oh but you will have a grin on your face once you finish. Seriously, I don't think I have ever felt a motor so solid in a Japanese car before. I cant even get 1/4in wiggle in it
