Default D16 swap

yep, i got the drive train set up off of K20/k24
i got the car back march 2009
my car started out as a 1984 mayfair, 500gbp rust bucket, but it drove, 998/auto with a slipping auto box, i didn't care, fixed her up for 6 months and got her to pass MOT, and then 2 months later the diff in the auto box went out, box still slipped changing gears, so i junked that engine, and then i got a 1275/auto from a mk1 metro with 40k miles on it, drove it alittle bit like that, and then the oil cooler line blew out from the fitting in the tranny case, as soon as that happened i turned it off, and then i said screw it because i had a water leak, ended up replacing half the panels on the car to the stop the water leak and i knew after that i would never go back to the A-lump engine again



the set up right outside his garage, getting ready to go to a new home

me and my little brother pushed the set up home thur the streets, lol
and the sweet part of it, right when i got it in my garage thats when the rain started to come down





i still had alittle more work to be done to my shell, im waiting to paint the shell because its alittle cold right now, i should be able to get some paint on it by march time frame, or im gonna have to get a few space heters and paint it that way


started working the harness
