So got another motor, already tore it down and getting it ready. Gonna do timing belt, cam seals, valve seals, front main, and water pump. My clutch and flywheel came in on thursday from Comp. Picked up a bell housing also, not oem but aftermarket, hope it works. Got my clutch pedal, master and slave cylinder ready to go in, taking the car to Freed next week and he'll do the pedal install. Lets hope it works..Here some pics

No engine will be stock minus all the turbo stuff, r154 is being built. Not ready for built engine $$$ yet. Just hoping for no issues and this setup lasts!!

Yeah I will get some pics up hopefully next week. If all goes well with the pedal setup, could make things easier on people trying to do the swap. Do you have pedals yet?

Thanks, yeah it was the brand new FIC 1100's injectors. I sent them to FIC, after some talking with them and them trying to convince me to stay FIC, I am going to stay with them. Its mainly about the money why I'm not switching right now. They did flow match my new set sop they should be fine..lets hope!!
