  • And so it begins...

    So as some remember, my SVT clocked out a few months ago back in February. It's been sitting the same spot since then and dad had been putting the project off since then. I finally got him motivated to get it started and we did so today! Here's what it's going to get:

    port-matched 3L
    SVT cams(probably)
    headers/y pipe
    test pipe and exhuast(later on)
    Torsen/quaife (one of those two)
    Cabin air filter(i saw the other thread, it's making do a swap)
    and a few other cosmetic modifications as we putt along.

    onto the pics!(will be more posts, stupid 10 image rule)

    garage shuffle




    the V will stay where it is, and the Z28 will be going over here for the time being




    all cleaned out


    car finally in, we had to push it all the way in, the SOB would not start


    jacked up and dad just taking a look underneath






    oil and radiator flush, dad looking down and me doing all the work, heh.


    more to come:
    2011 Kawasaki Ninja ZX-6R: GP-style shifting, and more mods to come.
    1998 Black CSVT #4754: '03 ported 3L, Opt'd SVT TB, NPG CAI, Torsen T2, MSDS headers/y pipe, Trubendz Testpipe, Magnaflow.

    more:



    some wires were birttle and broke. (anyone know where to get some new ones or help me out? hehe)


    UIM removed and Holy Carbon!




    "coil pack" removed


    and all closed up for the night, we started late and dad was hungry.




    Tomorrow, I get off work at 9ish AM. So, i plan on to remove the brakes, hubs, and front bumper while he is at work and we'll try the shafts and other things. more pics to come!

      Well keep plenty of pictures and updates as you move forward. I will be planning the same swap so keep an eye on your spending for me too ha! From what I gather, we'll be looking at a cool $2500 with a tune?

              The brittle/cracked pieces you showed are vacuum lines, not wires. Good you saw that now so you can get it replaced. Good luck ;)

                I'll keep it on tabs, with the motor,all the cosmetic stuff and the exhuast parts AFTER the car is running, i think im looking a little north of 3K.

                LOL. the ones on the van were supposed to go on the gran prix, but they didnt fit right. So, they ended up on the van. and the V still is on stockers too.

                i've been trying to get him to call, he's putting that off too. But it'll happen one day. probably closer to when the motor is 1/2 out or so.

                    PM sent.

                    and the MI'ers will agree to this, but I know it was an MI car before i took it in. i have proof!

                    the screws that hold the front bumper on...


                    and, anyway to get this out, without screwing the threads up, unless i can manage with one screw on that side

                      I had a similar experience when working on a Brent372's car. His car was also from MI and the bolts did exactly the same thing. The little brackets also broke and just let the bolt spin around. What I had to do was remove the entire fender and bumper at the same time. Once I did that then I used a die grinder and get in between the bolt carefully not to damage the fender or bumper.

                      I would suggest you call someone to help you on this as you will need 2 people one to hold the bumper and the other one to pull the fender.

                        my silver car was a michigan car and did the same thing with the bumper bolts. you dont have to do all that work to get those bolts out. thats ridiculous. iirc, theres metal clips that the bolt threads through. i just cut the clips off with some side cutters and the bolts fell right out. i replaced the hardware with some long bolts, nuts, and washers. it took me literally 5 minutes to cut off the tabs and get the bumper off after i realized what was holding the bolts in there


                        btw, i like your garage floor

                          Smalls; the metal clips, the screw goes through that right? and theres so much :censored::censored::censored::censored: rust and crap in there, i cant even move the clip. I nee some PB Blaster...and i get paid friday. maybe i'll just take the debit card and go get some

                          and thanks for the compliment on the garage floor, its starting to flake and peel though.

                            mine was the same way. it was sooooo rusty. but i had a really nice pair of dikes and cut right through it. you're seriously gonna waste a LOT of time if you remove the fender. try getting a small screwdriver underneath the metal tabs and bending them up. you can probably just break them that way if they are that rusty.
