its all coming together
as most of you are aware i bought my Au 2002 6cyl motor about 2 weeks ago, since then i havent done anything to it except remove the aircon, power steering, alternator and a couple of other things, clean the block and get ready for painting, i also bought an ef recond radiator for 130.
well yesterday i thought theres no way im gonna sit on my ass and twiddle my thumbs and hope for the parts to fall into my lap, so after work i called around to pretty much every wrecker in adelaide with pretty much no luck or a ridiculous price (i.e 1200 - 1600 bux). i decided to call aussie auto salvage and i ended up picking up
- Ef thermos (165)
- g/box (495)
- pedal box (110)
- Cable (30)
- Eb flywheel (75)
- rear g/box cross member (20)
all for 895bux, i think it was well worth the hours calling around getting prices and annoying the shit out of people. all thats left is to buy my clutch which will be an xtreme clutch (organic fibre with 900kg pressure plate) for 365bux, spigot bearing, engine oil and filter, top and bottom radiator hoses and serpentine belt.
other plans for the motor before it goes in is to have my extractors and hiflow cat lined up and GRA cam, and the block painted black with chrome rocker cover and a couple of minor things.
my goal is to have it all in before x-mas. what rear wheel kilowatts does every one think ill get with gas.
