If you moved the engine foward and you retain the stock starquest transmission, will the shifter still be able to fit in the stock location?

I used a 1g dsm alternator. No mods to the starquest pulley and spacer needed. They went on fine. But your right about the belt, that was a pita to get on. I had to turn the engine by hand while trying to slip it on. You will need a longer lower bolt and spacer. I got the 100amp version from the ebay link provided in a different thread here that was for the mirage alternator but i opted for the 100amp eclipse version from the same seller. Wondering if it would have been the same situation with the belt using the mirage alternator or not. Overall I now idle at 14.4 volts but drops to 13.5 with lights, Hvac on.

So over the weekend i installed new park brake cables I ordered from Rockauto, The first hicup was they sent me the wrong cables, so i return them and got sent the "correct ones", second the cables are not exactly as the oem ones. The mounting points on the oem are a two bolt flange, where as the ones i got only had one mounting bolt. The clevis part are too thick compared to the oem so it wouldn't slide back in to the lever on the caliper. I had to grind them down to fit. Other then that I installed them and now have a working handbrake.

Part # DORMAN C93359, even thou in the picture it showed an exact match to the oem cable. I didnt take pictures as i hit my forehead on the rotor while crawling in and out testing fitting :angry:

Same pedal feel that i can tell. I still have my abs, was thinking of deleting it but looked hard to get to with everything still in the bay or just to lazy lol. Coilovers are Ksport, From everything I read they are the same as D2's. They feel great on the road but i have them on the softer settings. Cant imagine whats it going to be like when i do all the bushings.  And thanks, we got super lucky on the new house, the shop has an attic but its a pain getting stuff up there, the house also has an attached 3 car garage.
