Things to do before swapping
« on: 11:13:36 AM / 03-Sep-12 »
I found a complet ca-det swap and was wondering what to do before I put it in my car.
It needs a hg so I'll get studs wile I'm at it but what are comon... issues should I do bearings, valve seals, oil and water pump ect? Or just inspect everything and run it?

Check clutch and plasiguage bearings. replace Pilot bearing, Oil pump, water pump and timing components. Basic stuff i do on swaps, another thing you might want to do is replace the water hoses on the intake manifold.
I keep my car cleaner then my room
Fuck you then, I'll take my movies, box of chocolates, bottle of wine and chloroform somewhere else.
Adding an SSD to that is kinda like strapping a 3 inch stainless HKS exhaust on a geo metro.
