Subscribed, I too cant wait to see the finished product and the journey there. Looks amazing and very thorough so far, if its anything like your 184 it will be a hell of a nice machine. I like the engine ideas, different.

Thanks a lot CSA, I hope to keep all of you entertained :)

On a side note, Pipes came by today and took the rest of his parts, the front wheels are now off and I can finish disassembling the front end. Then, I can get the frame on some sort of dollys, roll it outside and power wash the heck out of the engine bay!

Stay tuned!!

This is the big question.
Ive heard that the transfer case fouls on the block.

There is the option of using a RAV4 transfer case, but then strength might be an issue.

Oh boy, I apologize that I have nothing to show for the last 7 months, haha. At the time of my last post, I busted up the head in my other car and so the two toys sat in the garage lonely for the cold season. I actually just finished buttoning up the green car and soon plan to start cleaning the new toy. In a few weeks I can get the green car re-tuned.

In the mean time, I just need to figure out what to do with / how to sell the green car so I can afford parts for the 205 :shrug:

As far as a different motor swap, I'm most likely going to stick with a 4cyl motor, probably the setup from the green car and just use a 205 transmission.
