yea i didn't really replace anything that was pricey, like my front axles on which both boots are torn on both. screw it it's just friction.

well no video like i promised because i was really tired and nobody had clean hands. however, we did have a successful install, motor was hanging by the side mounts by 8pm, completely mounted before 9:30 break, and electronics ran before class was over. a couple buddies stayed after class with me to help finish it up. and at 1:11 am she fired up "first try". i put first try in quotes because i tried to start it a couple times before that but various obvious things were not connected, like one prong of my starter relay, then my fuel return line. after that she started right up first try. i think i'm going to check my injector connectors and spark plug wires because it sounded like a lawnmower and popped a couple of times.

it ran and held an idle by itself, could my sh*t be switched?

next, my warning lights stayed on the whole time, could this be because i don't have a belt on the alt yet?

anyway, bringing the car back to my apt finally so i can work whenever i want, helps that i have a week off this coming week.

Huge shoutout to the students in my class at UNOH, and especially to Troy Thayer, the guy that not only helped my remove, rebuild, and install, but also let me store the car at his house while it was down. he was there every step of the way and i don't think i could have stayed sane through this without him. thanks buddy.

I bought another belt and got a few other things for the car while it sits at the school at I can't work on it.

I finished making by power steering bypass line, basically the two lines of the power steering system looped, so water and crap doesn't get in.

I also modified my waste gate a little so I could actually used it. The way the bracket sat I could not fit the actuator because the trans was in the way. Well I got a flat bracket and threw my actuator rod in a vise and threaded more of the rod with a die, simple enough. Now I need to cut the rod at an appropriate point dictated by the way it will mount. Basically now I will have a working waste gate.

Found my vband for the exhaust, which I thought was lost. So that's a plus.

And I bought myself some pl adhesive for the motor mounts and diff mount. Should have done the front and rear while they were out but oh well.

Hopefully I can get in to jump the car and bring it to my apt so I can work a bit more

So expect an update tomorrow as the bays are open at school. I'm going to be:

Rerunning intercooler piping
Hooking up exhaust
Fashioning my waste gate bracket
Rebleeding coolant system and actually adding coolant
Changing break in oil to normal 5w30
Fitting mud flaps
Hooking up boost/vacuum gauge
Put on my tensionerless alternator belt
Rotate and fill tires
Change rear diff fluid, since everything else is fresh
Add rear wheel spacers and raise/lower car to suit mudflap height

And many other little things that I'm probably missing but hopefully I will add it here before I forget. Pic heavy tomorrow as the girlfriend is coming along.

So an update. I found that my fuel line was leaking at the pulsation dampener so I ordered new crush washers. Also didn't get the timing done but I am going to tow it home to time it. Still lots to do

Alright, quite an update today. Finally got her home to work on her, got tons of things. FMIC piping is ran to the intercooler with my custom brackets bolting it to the lower core support so that's good. Waste gate bracket has been successfully worked out with enough clearance for everything. Not sure what boost is set to right now but it will do. Put coolant, new rear diff fluid in, working on getting the break in oil out of it but it hasn't really ran long enough to need to be taken out. I'm going to check can and crank timing again because it just doesn't seem to run right. From experience it seems like it's either a vacuum leak or my cam timing. so I'm not sure. But I will take some pics in like 15 minutes and post them. So stay tuned

EDIT: here are the pics

OK guys and gals, I needed some diagnosis help. Finally got the old girl to idle on it's own, with some convincing via idle control screw. haven't checked ignition timing yet but it doesn't get any better from full retard to full advance except some occasional popping from the exhaust. Anyway, the engine shakes like crazy, feels like the can timing is still off but this is the 4th time I've done it, I know its right. All marks line up just like they should, so I'm thinking it its either ignition timing or a vacuum leak.

I drove over to the gas station and it seemed to lack power. Vacuum was around 15in/hg at 800rpm or as close as I could get. I felt around most of the couplers and no sucking or anything from there. Car bogs everywhere so I am almost sure its a vacuum leak. I'm going to try and take a video when I get back home so you guys can see and hear what's going on. I just really hope its not something serious but it usually isn't with these cars. I'm going to check my vacuum lines coming off the intake manifold but we'll see.

Not yet. Going to rent a compression tester from auto zone. If I get 0 compression on one cylinder I guess I'll know why
