ka24e transaxle


I hope you're not putting a transaxle in there lol.  Other than that looks cool.  Single cam KA's are sexy looking motors.

Think he means front end of the driveshaft?    Frank did you drill the rotors to 4 lug yourself?

I hope you have manifold wrap and a blanket made for the brake master cylinder/brake booster to prevent it from melting. Otherwise everything looks good so far!

This looks like quite a build you are doing.

Your interior looks strinkingly similar to mine, with the aftermarket tach jammed under the dash cowl, the 3 gauges hanging out in their pods on top, the steering wheel, and a piece of aluminium with switches mounted in it to replace the stereo.

I wish you luck navigating your IC piping around those pop-ups and still fitting it behind the rebar. All I can say is... MORE PICS!

im digging the garage, you have alot going on. this is a project ill be watching, keep it up

i got a 3 car garage thats on the other side of my property, so i have to walk a bit to do any car related work. luckly, i park infront of my house most of the time. right now i got the s12 in one bay - all taken apart, my audi under a cover in the 2nd bay till i find a buyer, and the 3rd one is empty and usually used for working and some storage. right now theres a gokart in there, a sportbike i dont own, and 2 dodge v8s im  storing for a friend. last time i used the bay was when i installed the exhaust on my truck and had it all laid out on the floor. ill be out there more in the summer, but right now its way too cold

it's 0 celcius in quebec, i live near bromont (1 hour east of montreal)
i go to the garage everyday which is 10 min away even if i don't have any car (got my 2005 lancer stolen 1 week ago and the insurance are pissing me off!!)

i just put alot of clothes and bring some music and it's not that bad ahahah

i wanna cruise down in the US this summer, if some members wanna meet me up i'd be glad to cruise down and show my ride, im just a bit scared of getting arrested for something , my car will look more like a race car so i don't wanna have any trouble ...

So today i went to the garage again to patch those nasty holes in my floor pan
brought one of my uncle to help me out since he restores old car everyday and has alot more experience then i do with this! i removed 70% of the tar on the floorpans and condamned the fuel pump hole in the trunk (a fuel cell is going there so i won't need it)

Also tought about something for the rear end since i'll be using a s13 bumper, since s13 have the licence plate IN the bumper maybe i'll fill up the rear valence like s13 also this means im throwing away the plastic part between the tail lights


i'll post pictures tomorrow, my sister will bring me back my camera. and im going there to finish cleaning the interior and prep it for paint !

still wondering which color i will use for the interior , any sugestion ?

Worked on the car a bit yesterday. Removed the rest of the tar on the floor ... working on the tar on the rear wheel wells but that thing is a PAIN to get off. Fixed the holes in the floor. I also buffed most of the rust off the front floors (i live in quebec so rust IS omnipresent). Closed the hole for the fuel tank (i'll be using a cell in the trunk). The car is now rock solid! Slowly moving forward ...

Wow talk about a complete teardown of the entire car lol... looks like you're workin' hard at it, keep goin!

Is that a 1G DSM in the background? I'm guessing it's a Plymouth Laser since it has no spoiler (unless it was removed).

Hella flush and all associates should be gunned down for brainwashing people into thinking a 225 and lots of camber is proper wheel fitment. THAT IS EASY, anyone can camber a skinny as tire till it dosnt rub. Now fitting an 11 with a 315 on stock fender with reasonable camber, that is fitment. And looks, and performs better than both.
