Thanks guys, only a little repair to do in the engine bay and it will be rust free.

I also went ahead and modified some stock knuckles and extended/boxed the front lca's. Then of course covered everything in por15.

Im terrible at updating this but Ive made a little more progress. The car is now off the stands with the gas tank and rear subframe back in. I started stripping the engine bay and had to take a little break from the chassis work and got started with the motor rebuild.

All new gaskets, arp headstuds, 2jz water pump, 2jz oil pump, drift motion pulleys, excessive motor mounts and ac delte bracket, and the collins cd009 to jz adapter kit.




I used my brothers motor/trans to test fit since mine wont be here for another week week, in and out twice with lots of pounding and cutting/welding to make that giant transmission fit.


And this past weekend I finished up the engine bay rust repair and painted it gloss black.

Another little update. Finally getting down to the little things until it moves under its own power.

I relocated the engine bay fuse box to the passenger side kick panel which isnt too hard, but adding the connections and relays for the engine harness at the same time made for some long days of wiring.



Picked up the cd009 trans from lkq so i could finally put the motorset in for good.


Im using the gktech shifter and it still landed a couple inches behind the factory shifter hole. This is also with xcessive motor mounts all the way forward. Planning on re working the shifter itself with some bends to try and get it in the center.



Made the trans crossmember


And finally the motor sitting in the bay

Starting the piece everything together. Waiting on couplers to finish the intercooler setup, driveshaft, and power steering line which should all be here by Thursday.

First start up and drive should be in a few days!

Here's a small update since its been running and driving. I scrambled to get the car done for a drift event last weekend and luckily made it too the second day to give it a little shake down. The motor ran great and is tons of fun with the cd009. Here's a couple pics of how it currently sits.



I did have an issue with the gktech shifter which was pretty disappointing. First off, they did not include any instructions or even pictures of how it was supposed to look fully assembled, not even on their website until a few days ago when I looked. I wasn't too worried about that since it was pretty easy to figure out and it really can only go together one way.
So when I first drove around it felt and shifted great, no complaints and was pretty impressed with the quality and design. But half way through the day and roughly 20 shifts from 1st to 2nd the shifter between the pivot ball and where it connects to the trans bent so bad I could no longer shift into 2nd, 4th, or 6th.
I know for a fact I wasn't shifting hard enough to where this should have bent so bad and after looking at the design I can't seem to understand why they would make that section of the shifter so narrow compared to the rest. I have contacted gktech and they are trying to resolve the issue so I won't give them any negative reviews just yet, especially since this was part of their first batch to be shipped.

Thats pretty awful that the shifter bent like that.
I've seen a handful of negative reviews about GKTECH on a few of their components in the last few months. Hopefully they don't roll downhill, cause they seem to have their sh_t together.
