Heres where im at.






Due to a gross miss calculation on my part, i put one of the primaries on the pass header thru the starter and that kind of side tracked me for a while. I cut it off and im just gonna re route it.

Anyway heres todays progress , put the tranny back together took 15 minutes total.








Good news is the mazworx tranny to chassis mount for the sr20 kit is a direct bolt on in my application which means that the drive shaft for the vg trans with sr20 will bolt on too, makes this ten time easier

Fixed the pass side header, now it doesnt hit the starter anymore and clears everything else.








Got the clutch in today,

Its a z1 motorsports single disc should be good till 500lb/tq.

It all lined up fine, z32 pilot bearing even fit into the vh crank perfect.

Now if it would stop raining id put this f*cker in.

Its been rainging all day for the 5th day in a row.

Just getting little odds and ends with the valve covers and the headers done.

Wrapped them today. Tie raps are just to hold them in place because i ran out of hose clamps, and safety wire. Now me nor my passengers will burn there feet by the floorboard.
