Had to make a custom shifter plate the w58 shifter is a tad further forward than the stock shifter and sits a bit higher. Still needs a boot. The cube speed shifter is beefy so the one I ordered doesn't fit around it. :(

Took it for a spin around the yard. felt good to drive it after a year and a half or so even if it was just around the yard. Right now I am working on some coolant leaks that I have on the thermostat housing I modified. I must have a pin hole in one of my welds. Also trying to perfect the clutch feel. But after that its time to schedule a trip to the dyno.

Nice job.  4g swap was an idea I tossed around and like a dummy I decided to stick 4g54 with mpi

Nothing wrong with a good MPI build. Depending on your goals its more cost effective to a point. It was what I was considering before I came across the engine I have now. I even had the magna intake and trigger wheel.

Just wanted to give a little update on this project. Since most of the work was done in the engine bay I decided to throw the front end of the car back together.

For years I've had this car and never had a hood prop. I was always using some sort of makeshift prop or this non matching one i got from the scrapyard. So I finally sprung for a set motocams hood struts. talk about a gamechanger. Although i have to be very gentle with closing the hood. I'm thinking bout trying to figure out a lighter cylinder possibly. As you can see from the pics there is a shaved valve cover rather than the text one. I fell prey to the infamous week valve cover and too many ugga duggas.

Poor thing had 2 years worth of fabrication dust on it so I gave it a wash and drove it to a local show.

Yes. Feels like it has more power already even with just a base map and some street tuning. It will be nice to see what a professional can do with it. Boost comes on quick and sustains longer with the evo3 16g. The shift points are right on as well. Although 5th gear is definitely more of a highway gear. And it makes some pretty sweet noises with that race muffler. Maybe my neighbors might not think so. :) But speaking of the transmision I have to figure out the clutch. It doesn't disengage until the pedal is almost to the floor. I don't remember my stock pedal felling like that. I've replaced the master, the slave is also brand new. Also bled it multiple times. I may try to bleed it once more and play with the pedal adjustment.

Thanks man! Not quite done yet. But I'm seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.

Thanks! It definitely did. The best was taking my 4 yo son out for a spin. He'd always ask when are you going to put the car together and take me for a ride.
