Melissa and i did a bunch of work on the 86 in the garage today! we went to harbor freight and bought some tools and later decided that we should get a space heater to work in the garage, not bad it was about 50* in there with the heater on.

here is the motor that i got along with the SR downpipe
Image

taking the old turbo and manifold apart
Image

SR T25 Turbo
Image

Test fitting and the manifold is for a top mounted turbo for a MR car, so i need a new manifold
Image

Image

Image

LOOK AT THIS FUCKING EAGLE
Image

did some cutting of the upper radiator support and now i can take motors in and out by my self!!

Updates!!
motor mounts are on so hopefully the motor will be back in the car this weekend!!!!
Image

Image

it will fill this space...
Image

the old motor needed to have some things taken off of it, now it is looking rather bare
Image

also i got the Toms AFC from japan today! it looks rad but that is it for now, i still need to do some reading up on this
Image

Image

Image

Image

this is the little bastard that i could not find for months!!! got two of them from some cat down in TX
Image

now some questions! ( for the other forums)
this is one of the vacuum lines off of the back of the intake manifold, and IDK what it goes to
Image

a larger vacuum line dose this one go to the breather or the brake booster?
Image

on the bottom of the TVIS idk what this vacuum line goes to
Image

Lines on the throttle body, Coolant?
Image

on the back of the motor, coolant, but it looks like it should be a vacuum line

I'll try to answer your questions:

On the intake manifold, the vacuum line you're pointing at is for the brake booster. The capped one to the left is for the breather.

That line on the T-VIS goes to a metal vacuum line that is attached to the intake manifold. It seems you are missing that entire piece. If you want T-VIS you will need it, otherwise I think you can just take the T-VIS plate out completely.

Those are coolant lines for the idle air control valve coming off the throttle body. They attach to metal coolant lines that bolt onto the block.

The two blue vacuum switches there are BVSV. They attach to the EGR valve and charcoal canister. I think you can cap them? Or buy new ones since it looks like they've been smashed.

Good luck! ;)

Looking good so far! I have an oil filter relocation kit without the hoses if you want the filter to be easier to get to.

[QUOTE=Tman312;402848]1st
That one isnt plugged in on my car
2nd
Fat black and the 2 white wires goto alternator,
Bigger white plug grounds the afm
I dont have the small white plugged in
3rd
black plugs into o2
blue plugs into the ground thing that sits between your coil and body.
4th
Those two were blocked off when I got my car, might have been for a/c?
5th
Distributor
6th
Tvis probably
8th
white plugs into windshield cleaner pump wire
11th
Those deal with a/c or hvac. Mine are unplugged as I took my a/c out.
13
There's only one spot it will plug in Im pretty sure, try all three and see which ones fits. (dont force it)[/QUOTE]

Interesting... :?: Question.. did you do this just for a fuell cell? and is it still sitting lower than the floor? Im planning on similar trunk cutting, but tubing all the way out to be used as bash bar/bumper support..and keep the floor flat, with fuel cell in the trunk..

I did new O rings, filters, caps, and seals on all the injectors
Image

Made up some fuel lines and re installed the aem FPR and rail
Image

Also the painless fule pump relay kit is mounted and needs a 12v source
Image

Last night Patrick stopped by and we went thrugh a bunch of wiring and it seems to be all together! That and the cooling system is all together! Radiator mount made, sensor for water temp gauge is in, ordered fans, stuff for the battery relocation stuff, kill switch ect. I am going to hit the garage and work for a while today and get a fan shroud made, make more brake lines, put the cash/center council back in the car.

My plan at this point will be to have the car started and running by the end of next week as long as all of the parts show up!
