lol Eh the seal is replaced and on...Was made in Japan lol. Really thought replacing it with the aftermarket one would be better than not replacing it at all. The oem one was 57 bucks vs 15.99 for the fel pro. I know that the 45 bucks isnt anything if the seal fails but I did take extra special care installing and used copper rtv where needed. Should be good.
As Far as the red wiring goes. I am not sure I understand what wiring nightmare you are implying I will run into. If I cut the wires about 6 inches away from the ecu and body plug connectors, I will be able to see the colors at the ecu and body plugs and then at the other end of the extension which I am guessing will be in the hood area.
Should I use a different color for each connector or something? Colors were all the same price I just figured I wasn't going to be able to match the factory colors at all so might as well just use one color... I figured it would all be wrapped up anyways when finished.
I am doing all the research I can and learning a lot daily about this build but its hard with spending so much time on google and cl searches when I have work and 2 little ones running around when I am home...lol I appreciate you all very much for the help I guess is what I am trying to say. And I am sorry if I ask questions that have been asked before and/or could probably be found with some searching. Please understand I am searching the heck out of this and many other forums...Driving the wife nuts some days lol. I mean no disrespect and am not being lazy.
I ordered my engine mounts from driftmotion tonight. Hopefully I will get those soon as I need to get the engine back in the car asap and get the engine hoist returned to my cousins neighbor as it is on loan...So I need to focus on items that need to or should be replaced while the engine is out.. Looks like I will have to tap into savings to aquire the i/c setup and whatever else I learn I need to complete this build. I really would appreciate some guidance on what you guys see I will need to buy or aquire to finish this... I can't buy everything right away I am learning as there is way more than I originally thought but I do need to know what I need.
Okay time to put the kiddos to bed.
