A cookie sheet is a brilliant idea, especially since you know it can handle the temps lol.

It's a very good idea. I was looking for cookie sheets for awhile actually, but ultimately, i picked up some spal brackets that i'll attach to the oem locations, i really doubt i'll have any cooling issues compared to the stock junk, the mishimoto is massive, and the spal probably moves twice the CFM as OE fan/shroud.

Aside from me waiting for my timing kit i pieced together (again) Got a bunch of silicone adapters, clamps some piping to clean up the engine bay some for the FMIC, my buddy is trading me his Treadstone TR6 intercooler so i can junk the ebay garbage on the car currently.

The 'CT27' Showed up from ATS Racing Looks pretty slick... Guess i won't have much to compare to power wise, but its more of a reliability/modernizing mod in my book.

Have a WTB thread in the classifieds for a sunroof, got a couple leads so hopefully i won't have to worry about that soon. :shrug:

Slow progress. Made a CAD templete for the flywheel cover with its natural grime. Cut and drilled it out with some scrap steel.

Image

Pulled the oil pan because i thought it was leaking, and it was in the way of the plate... And wanted to verify if the engine was actually replaced. Looks very clean, so i am happy with that.

Image

Timing parts arrived as well, so got the waterpump on, working on the rest.


No for sures on the sunroof yet, just some parts.

Found this gem too.

This is the oil drain into the oil pan adapter. The Brass hose barb was threaded (yes, threaded, somehow..) and RTV'd into the stock turbo drain plug.

Image

Amazing.

3sgte exhaust studs suck. Majority pulled out the threads, and fought hard to come off. Welding seemed to be the best option.

Showing our displeasure upon completion.

Got a helicoil kit on the way. m10x1.25 is not in my standard tool arsenal. :shoots:


Timing is done. That wasn't too bad, but lots of raising and lowering of the engine to get to bolts and things.

Image

Also installed a Brooks Racing motor mount (Just engine side for now, while its apart) Fun fact, GC subaru wheel bearings make a perfect size die for pressing out the mounts.

More previous owner left overs....

I would use a time-sert, much better than a helicoil.

EDIT: Were you the one on the FB group asking about stud removal to install titanium replacements? If so, do you regret it now LOL :lol:

What caused you to want to remove studs in the head by the exhaust ports?

I looked at those as well.. Concern i had, is the size you need to hog it out too. Mcmastercarr had the drill/tap size listed at m14... which is huge, not familar with the cylinder head enough to be confident i wasn't going to take away material that is needed.

Not on facebook, i picked up some new stock from primedriven. I think they are from a supra? Steel.

So, some of them were bent. I actually had to hammer some straight to get the old manifold off... Not sure why. Guessing more PO shenanigans. and couple the exterior threads were bad when it came off... I would have preferred to leave them

If you ever pull a coil, a time-sert is always a pan-b. . I also needed remove/replace a damaged exhaust stud and destroyed the threads while doing that too, I used a time-sert and it worked great.

Thanks Zack! let me know please.

So my next hurdle is the dipstick. The yellow handle is from the maroon car. The rusty one is from the parts car.

Im guessing the yellow one is a mr2 dipstick..? The celica one looks to have broke or separated in the old motor, but that still doesn't answer the length. Why are these two different lengths?

Can i run the mr2 stick? Are celica/mr2 pans the same?

Exhaust manifold purchased.

Should have a sunroof Sunday.

I still don't know what i am going to do about the dipstick... Doesn't seem to be one used i can find. MR2 one is weird, and i guess my celica one is broke?
