Yeah I was skeptical at first, I really like the way they look, just want to space em out a little more.

I know Chris, Ill have the motor by the middle of this week, but I'm going to hold off on putting it in for a few weeks/months I want to do all of the maintenance to avoid having to do it in the future so I can just drive the car. Although that never really works out haha.

I'll hit you up on Monday before the meet.

I replaced the valve cover on the UZI, on the side that had the misfire, and it still runs like ***, but now leaks oil as well. SO I went back and tightened the bolts again, did the procedure for tightening and when I was tightening the last bolt, CRACK!!. So I called up Ranlet and I brought over my valve cover for him to weld up, he got it all sealed up, now my spark plug tube seals started leaking and my misfire is on 2/4/6/8 rather than just 6 and 8 now.

I'm over dealing with this motor and its electrical problems, I just need to get it running alright so I have a vehicle until I can put the JZ in.

I cleaned the bay and stuff.

What is left of the sticker now:

I don't know if anyone has every done it but I put a MK3 supra radiator in my UCF, these cars usually have a remote reservoir and cap that runs to the radiator, I hate that and my radiator had a crack so I replaced it with this. Its a lot cleaner looking I think and the upper hose I got for it clears the clutch fan well.

Still waiting on JZ. I got this R154 for $150!
Pics of when it arrived: Click the image to open in full size.
It was pretty beat looking, I got right to it with a wire wheel!

It started looking pretty decent after a few mins of cleaning.

A buddy of mine, who was doing a VH45 into S13 swap recently sold his motor, had an Eaton M90 supercharger laying around, apparently a lot of UZI guys use these things, they’re pretty rad.

I also took some measurements to get an idea for how long of a shifter extension I would need to make. I need it to be about 32 inches in length, it is 25 with the 1jz Bellhousing. So I need an extension of about 7”. Sweet. I’m sure this is going to be fun.
