What an amazing week! First engine went in and now a correct color dashboard was at the pull and pay junkyard. Got a bunch of trim pieces as well.

Looks great! Stoked to see what you think about the 4th gen motor in the car. In the SW20 it's night and day.

Love my 3rd gen engine :) needs a valve cover gasket, but dropped in 1 at a time head studs, and some cams, with better fuel system and stand alone plus KO Racing Street Brawler turbo kit, she's making plenty of poop :) Good luck with yours! I had to do same tank restore, but changed to Walbro 450 fuel pump while I was at it. :)

Got a few more interior pieces from a GTS that showed up at the yard. Less sun damaged than mine

I learned the blue and the dark blue are not the same color even when faded. Bummer because I like the lighter color. These seats are comfortable though!

Finally got this fuel hose disconnected. Took heat and PB blaster to free the connections.

Unfortunately the plastic tube doesn't like the torch. This assembly is no longer available.

Now working on a really short 6AN fuel line. Like less than 6 inches after putting on the M14 adapters. Fun times

Got a lot of the ST205 engine wired up and only left coolant and fuel disconnected. Newer dashboard is in. Feeling good.

Only question. The stock ST165 radiator fan doesn't fit with the ST205 turbo location. Anyone have a hint on what fan to put in that little spot?
