:'( not yet. It got super cold here in Oklahoma and I kind of stopped lol. Weather just started warming up last week but I've been so busy with work I haven't had time to do anything. I did manage to install my new sumped fuel tank and run a few fuel lines here and there. I'll try to update it tonight with pictures.

Lots and lots of updates. I got my transmission back from Driftmotion. Jacks was no longer offering the R154 rebuild. Bent a valve while doing my springs/retainers so now the motor is coming out for arp headstuds and a new TT headgasket. I have a bunch of pictures, just need time to upload everything.

This has set me back a huge ways, was hoping to make it to kc2k.... But I guess that want happen..

^^^ Thanks man.

Car has pretty much sat in the garage the whole summer, I've neglected the car due to the fact that it has been too hot to work on it, and I've been busy working on some of the big rigs we have here at home. It's been a crazy crazy summer for me.

I've just sent the head to the machine shop last week, hoping to get it back sometime either this week or next. ARP head studs have arrived, still waiting for the TT headgasket.

Also picked up a TT 3.76 LSD rear end, super excited about that as well. Hopefully by the end of Sept. the car will be running!

Finally got my head back last weak! Looks beautiful! I've been cleaning the deck up to prepare for the new tt head gasket. Tonight I'll be installing the headgasket/arp head studs/ and finally the head! Most progress I've made in a long time! Getting motivated again!!

I have the ToyoTool, works amazing! Some guys make a plastic PVC "T" from lowes and it gives them more leverage on stiff aftermarket springs FYI.

What did driftmotion charge you to upgrade / rebuild the r154?

Yes he toyotool really is amazing! I loved it!

Driftmotion charged me 1342.00 for the rebuild. I had a bearing that was going bad on my tail housing and he replaced that for 50.00 for me.

Bought a few new things last week! Tial bov, and a custom made intake manifold. Pics will be up soon of the new stuff!

Also sent off my compressor housing to OCD works. They modified it to sound like a t51r! Haha I'm excited!
