Okay, I'm going to keep everything in this thread.

Background: I bought this car from Andrew [Floodshark] on here, with 123k miles, a cold-idle problem that dissapeared after I drove it off his property, and a boost leak problem. I drove it, crashed it, fixed it, drove it some more. Then I took it to Drift Buffet back in Feb, where I learned that cars don't like clutch kicks at really really high RPMs. So the alt belt came off. I tried to put it back on and must have bent the bracket. Blah blah blah long story short the alt was going out. So I bought a used one from Ecoparts that turned out to be rancid diarehha. So I was going to buy a new one. But that was like $120 plus core-fuck that. I gave my freind the rest of the $500 I owed him (I already paid $350), for a KA24DE. This was a nice motor, but a PITFA to get. Seriously. And it didn't come with shit I was promised like ECU, harness, ETC. I had to buy that shit elsewhere. Fuck. So I bought quite possibly the shittiest engine hoist ever and went to pulling out the old CA shit. Big ups to Jason the fagmo for helping on the pull. Then I tried to put the motor in ,and realized this is what hell is like.

Diary:
*11/17/07
Today I was going to put the VC back on. Oh no, that wasn't going to happen. This is why:

So I bent that bitch out of the way, but it can go more. And it will

So I cleaned up the engine bay a little bit more, dragged my stereo sytem downstairs, cleaned up some of the old facory wiring, tried to figure out how to run the harness that HeatW, from here, made for me (Excellent work, BTW.Highly recommended).

Some other pictures I took today (After cleaning up, so it looks kinda junky everywhere)

lol looking good man, have you considered jacking up the tranny to align the engine more? (instead of having it lean against the firewall)

Have you considered shutting the fuck up??

And yes, I just need to get my other jack back from my buddy. I need to get under there tomorrow [hopefully] to undo the stock driveshaft.

PS: Anyone know the size of their clutch fan bolts? The ones that acually hold the plastic fan onto the weird finned clutch unit. Haha, unit.

+1... I keep using my buddies tools, but some time here... I'll be buying my own set and a set of those are first or second on the list... in addition to ratchets and a socket set and such.

I know it was a 10mm, but I mean the actual bolt size, not the head. And pitch. I lost them, and need to go buy new ones. IE M5*1.25x6mm


And I <3 my mess

11/19:
Lets see, today I:
Jacked up the trans
Tried to figure out a fan shroud situation(What did other KA guys do?)
Put on the radiator hoses
Set up the intake
Made a mounting bracket for the intake
Put the fan back on
Listened to "Bleach" by Styles of Beyond (A good song)
Got bummed that the Rob Zombie/Ozzy concert got cancelled.

Anyway on with the pictures:
At the end of today:

Anyone know where this plug goes? It doesn't plug into the weird sensor on the intake box, but its still a 2-wire.

Anyone know where these rubber (vaccum?) lines go to? How about the second pipe on the intake?


And finally anyone know where the pipe nrxt to the sensor on the intake goes to?

Thanks

Wait.. Did you already get the wiring harness done for this? Your car looks like MK1..

If you figured out the wiring, wanna post up a diagram? I'd like to have a CA18DET, but it is easier and cheaper for me to get a KA24DE

11/20 [Yes I realise it's almost 11/21, lol]
Lets see. I don't reall remember LOL
I cut the trans tunnel moar.
rounted the wiring a little better
Learned that shifters being forced into your side hurt
As do ebrakes
Made a bracket for the airbox
Found what wires do what in the column
Jacked the trans up.
Pulled the ebrake up more (You'll see why)
Struggled to remember where these two wires go LOL

Onto the peekchores:

The bracket I made

Looks close?

AH!The shifter is UNDER the ebrake in reverse.

Tagged wires...

Um yay?

I'm guessing this is the block ground?

And this the start signal? (Yellow wire colour couldn't be found in the FSM, though.) It's a 2-hole plug with only one insert, the yellow one. And it has taty funky boot on it.
