So, my list of projects just got interrupted by another project that was supposed to be further down the list. It was either get rid of the 93 vista with no motor or transmission or build it. I choose build it!
I began on Friday with a degrease and pulled the wire harness, (going to be using a 2g talon harness 2g brains)
Next, I installed a 7 bolt 4g63 with a 2ga auto trans and transfer case (will be using 2g turbo TCU as well)
Most likely the turbo will be from an RVR but i have a T28 here that i would like to try at some point as well, we'll see on that one.
Evo3 exhaust mani with E3 o2 housing and 2 1/2 - 3" turbo back.
So far over the weekend I have set the motor in place and customized a couple motor mounts. The rear mount was a mutant assembly of two different mounts and the passenger side transmission mount was the original 4g64 mount but cut up and re-fabbed into a slightly different alignment. Not sure if there was another passenger mount that would have worked better for me at this point but this is what i did cause, well, I didn't learn to weld for no reason.
Engine bay wires are coming along but I have yet to start splicing the interior side of the harness.
Still have to locate my intercooler that i have for this project (as i put it somewhere safe) and then i can order the radiator I want. Probably going with a Scirocco style rad from Summit.
Axles and driveshaft are installed and front brakes and suspension will be upgraded but I'll wait a bit on that.
How are we doing pictures here now? I was using photobucket but not any longer.
I'll post some when i get it figured out or maybe just link to instagram.
I wasn't planning on doing this project right now but I am glad to get started. It has helped me clean a few things out of the garage. Turns out i have 8 fruit and banana motors out there! haha.
Anyhow, I have to run for now. Wish me luck!
