Calling all Chicago Owners!

Postby bloodMoney » Tue Aug 21, 2007 7:00 pm

I will be getting my jdm setup delivered tomorrow: engine and trans at ~40k no harness or ecu. I am scheduled to pull the motor at my house this/next week and install the motor at the benz dealership downtown on the first of Sept. I need to drive this car to michigan by the 3rd and I don't want to be rushed in getting this stuff installed.

To the point: I am looking to see if any Chicago area AT owners would be willing to come out and help me get this car running over the next two weeks....>>insert begging emoticon<<

It could be like a mini-meet almost... :wink:

If its easier for you to AIM me, mine is swimcap7401
Thanks!

I dont have the motor out yet as I've gotten busy with work again... I did take all of next week off to work on the car though. This weekend I'll be taking a trip up to MI to see my parents and i'll be back sunday night. I've got a bunch of friends coming up on saturday the first to help with the car, but hopefully I'll have the motor in by then... I think that Will01 is going to come up that saturday as well if you want to. Or if you're free after you have school next week :wink: just give me a call.

I'm trying to get the motors swapped out and in before saturday... I'm thinking that we could spend saturday chasing all of the vaccum demons down :twisted:

Unless you could find a way to get it to me before hand...:wink:

BUMP! Anyone willing to come down tomorrow and help me out? I know that its short notice and you guys may be planning on coming down on saturday, but I really want to get a jump start on this. I'm having some trouble getting the driver side axle and tie rod out... otherwise, the motor would be out already. The cherry picker I got is only a 2 ton... Is it gonna be enough to get this car up? Sorry guys, I'm just so stressed out about this. I've been going at it alone all week and now I'm maxed out.

i used the 1 ton setting to lower the engine to the ground and then used 2 ton setting and hooked some chains to the bumper support to lift the front end up. Worked like a charm.

i'll give you a call tomarow
