Hi everybody,
I brought an st165 from a buddy of mines recently and already started the build. I plan to update this thread with pics of my progress.

So far, i removed the turbo manifold and down pipe to replace the "hoses from hell" with new oem part and wrap it with heat guard tape. Changed spark plugs, to new denso. Remove valve cover to change gasket, but still waiting for the gasket to arrive in mail. Its a nightmare to find simple part for this motor! :cry:

That's mainly because that motor never came to the states. Prime usually has or can get whats needed and are stateside, so give them a look.. http://www.primemr2.com/

Hack sawed the rubber out of the stock motor mount and insert the durable poly insert...also bought aluminnum crossmember bushing to replace the weak rubber stock one.
