Someone has already swapped it over, I'm almost curious if they're on this board. It was near Cleveland.
Seems to have some rust issues, but hopefully will clean up some. Oh its a 5 speed too.

Well, I've done a ton of work but it still needs more. I replaced every metal brake line under the car. Did rear rotors,pads, and parking brake shoes. Had to replace both front calipers(lucky me they are GVR4 brakes) and pads, and had to replace the alternator as well. But finally was able to drive it. Next on the list is a boost leak test because it runs terrible.

Well Ive done a lot of work to this thing over the months. Don't have pics of everything but I have a few. List of whats been accomplished so far.
Did a BLT and found all sorts of leaks.
Replaced the intercooler
Injector seals
TB seals were bad so I Fought with putting a DSM throttle body on it. It was not a direct bolt on like I anticipated.
Installed some BC 272's with revised lifters
Replaced a junk exhaust manifold
Installed a new rear diff bar
Its running a lot better. Really want something bigger than the Big 16G though.
Heres a few pics, wish I would have taken more.


Side note, I put some MR gauges in it. Unfortunately I couldn't do what I wanted for the oil temp gauge. I really wanted to turn it into a coolant temp gauge but couldn't get it working. If anyone would have some ideas for it I'd love to hear it.

Did you make that rear diff bar yourself? Can someone knowledgeable comment on whether or not using mild steel or stainless steel tubing with a MIG welder is advisable to do something like this?
