    It cleaned up nicely!

    They gave you the build info over the phone? When I called, they wanted me to fax my title to them. At that time, my lender had the title.... now that it's paid off (and they sent it back to me), I can't find it. I'll probably end up getting a new title from the DMV... but I still really want to know my build # and stuff.

        That's funny. I had no trouble with them giving it to me over the phone. All they needed was the VIN and that's it. Told me everything else.

            Justin has experience fixing the car after the alarm was ripped out. I know he had to splice lots of wires back together.

              I hooked up a viper 791X (IIRC) in my CSVT, and it was pretty extensive in what it tapped into.

              What are you having issues with? If you can take pics, I know I could help.

                  Pfft no, the battery is dead, its charging now. Had a leaking cell, which corroded the hell out of the terminal till the cell dried out. So I filled it up with water and it started dripping out immediately. So once that POS is charged and I get the wiring finishedm I'll put some oil in her and start it up to see what happens.

                    Work continues on the car.

                    Purchased a few things

                    1 Crankshaft Gear $30.00 (F8RZ6306AA)
                    2 Guides $50.00 for the pair (F8RZ6K297AA F8RZ6K297BA)
                    2 Timing chains $125 for the pair (F6DZ6268CA)
                    2 Timing chain tensioner arms $65.00 (F6RZ6L253BA)
                    2 Timing chain tensioners $95.00 (F6DZ6L266BA)

                    And a NPG lower intake converter
                    As well as a new pre 98 center console

                    Put the stock intake together, had to clean it up a lot so dirty inside. Also tried to start the car.

                    The alarm went off immediately, and had to figure out how to disarm it. After that I tried cranking it over and nothing happened. Absolutely nothing, looked at the alarm instruction manual, it has a starter dis abler. YAY! Got to figure out if its messing with it. Also pushed the car in 5th gear to see if the engine was seized as the owner stated, its not. The engine turned back and forth no prob.

                        Yeah I could use some help on some stuff. I usually work on it after 5pm if I'm not at work or have something I must attend. Unfortunatly I don't have your #. Shoot me a P.M.

                          Update, added to the total cost so far. Its going to cost me more then 3k before I even purchase an engine and trans. I'm getting behind on this project, as I wanted o pull the engine during winter break. Time to start selling some of the video game collection.

                          Also tried jumping the starter with a screw driver again nothing. You can hear the main solenoid click but that's it. Wonder if the starter is dead.

                            that's a good bet on the starter

                            I learned that you can pop a few things off and bag-n-lable the hardware randomly, and not have it eat up a lot of time at all. Then give it ample time to drain (you may even want to jack up the back, front, etc and let it sit that way for a bit to make sure close to every bit of fluid drains)
                            If you do all of that crap before hand, the actual engine/trans pulling can be..... somewhat fun.

                              IT STARTED!! But man did it sound bad. It has a spun bearing for sure. That clacking was loud. On the plus side everything else seemed fine trans shifted well, it stopped well, power steering. So now I can start taking apart the engine, wanted to make sure it was dead before disassembly.
