That's right folks... I am putting a 350 CI chevrolet smallblock into my S12 Hatch. I got tired of the CA18ET (which is for sale, make offer) because I'm not a "tuner". I grew up building american muscle and working on my old trucks. I am old-fashioned in the sense that I blame all new cars' failure to their electronics. I don't even like Fuel injection, unless its on my brand new toyota, haha. Who wouldn't like 40 mpg? Anyways, I have stuck to my roots, and decided on the 350 swap after being further inspired by Premo. Whether he knows it or not, he has helped me tremendously in many aspects of the build (preparation of what to expect, answers, PICTURES, and other things all add up quickly with me). I have done a lot of progree with the car thus far. I have pulled the engine and transmission out of the S12 and also the Chevy truck that supplied the 350. I have the CA18ET on the floor in my shop, on a pallet ready-to-go, haha. The 350 has made its way to the engine stand, separated from it's 3 speed transmission. I have many pictures and will post them up tomorrow sometime (most likely during class, haha), which show my progress with the motor and the preparation on the car. Since this is how far I have gotten tonight, I will post the further progress in new posts as I go, along with pictures. Like I said, I have a bunch, wait til tomorrow! haha.
A thanks for inspiration from Premo, and another "Thanks" to the good, positive comments that are going to come about as the thread goes along... LOL. Do not bash my thread, any neg feedback will be mentally shoved back up your ass, kidding. Im open to all criticism. LEt me know some stuff if you have USEFUL information.
