Where you at in ATX? I wanna see this car in person. Im about 20min north of Round Rock. Lemme know. Im looking at snagging a gte online as well. I'll go through it first though and replace all of the seals and oil pump before I set it in my car. My lil ole GE still runs great..for now.

Just an update, did a headlight retro with fxrs, painted the shrouds. I love it! I also installed a turbo timer for peace of mind. Car is running great, now its time to do some bp upgrades!!!!

I used a supra throttle cable. I reused the old link on the aristo tranny.

did come up on any problems or was it pretty straight forward? i know the edu is in the engine bay so you dont have to extend it. did you have to change the pinouts on the body plugs to make the gauges and interior stuff work? if so can you share this info?

No changes to pinouts. Only ran one line for the tach. Swap took me 12 hours off and on by.myself. my first engine I ever pulled....

I have a question about the swap, are all models required to move pins on the gray plug, because I didnt have a shift lock when i turned it on. the car runs and everything. I have several lights on and I know i have to pull the vcs bulbs but my windshield washer light is on but I topped it off, my oil light is on and when I go over a certain rpm my check engine comes on and stays on until I shut off the car and its off again when i turn it back on also my ECT starts flashing when my check engine light goes on. once the check engine turns on. the car shifts early and down shift quick when i get off the gas. It seems to bog if I floor it and when that happens it feels like im just making noise and not really going anywhere like a civic lol. I havent run my tach wire yet so cant really reference any rpms but if i floor it and it reaches a certain rpm it will bog and i wont accelerate. Are these the simtons of limp mode and if so wich wires do i move to and where do they go on the plug. I still need to run my tach line will that fix any other lights on the dash or just make the tach work? And do i just cut and soder the wire to where it goes on the body plug? thanks again for the help.
