Well, i decided to stop beating around the bush and get the starion clutch pedal mounted up.

Made some more progress today. Got the starion clutch pedal assembly fitted up. That was the only real big issue I had with the swap, and now it's done. I wouldnt say it was hard, but it was a real pain in the butt. I elongated most of the holes a little to make fitting it easier. I still have to cut off the old cluth pedal as it is one piece with the brake pedal. I'll cut it so if for some reason I go back to cable in the future I can revert by welding it back up.

So now that the hard stuff is done, I have a few simple things left to do. Mount ic pipes, oil cooler, run my wiring harness, install the fuel pump, and wire up the alternator. Should be running in a couple of days.

Some pics of the starion trans bolted to a lancer crossmember. No mods needed.

Should have left the other clutch pedal in... you wouldn't have to worry about granny shifting, not double clutching like you should!!

Made some more progress today after taking a few days off.

I started out by mocking up the intercooler. This car fits a 31x12x3 ic very nicely inbetween the bumper and the frame.

I finished the oil cooler positioning and mounted it. Grill clears n all :)

Clutch line was installed

I also drilled out the hole for the wiring harness.


It's going to be real fun running intercooler pipes and also running the mas air sensor. I'm not looking forward to it. The plan was to non intercool it, but apparently I misplaced my non intercooled ovcp, so FARK it, I'm intercooling it with my big ass ebay intercooler I have had laying around.

My to do list is getting pretty slim

Run wiring harness
remove old alternator harness
mount ecu
mount fuel pump
install fuel filter and return lines.
mount the ignitor
fll trans and install shifter boot
install slave cylinder
get a new oil feed line made for the turbo
reinstall turbo after wiring is complete along with heat shields.
Install the 3inch exhaust off the challenger
Make hard pipes and mount the intercooler

Not so important stuff.
Polish my mitsu logo valve cover
paint my water pump pulley some f'n gold
install wats
install rally lights
install Marshal optilux with h1 and h3 hid
Find a fire arrow rear end

Eh, I like em, they will be going back on. Eventually I'll build a new light setup. This thing may end up becoming a rally car anyways.

Made a little more progress tonight. Mounted the fuel filter and fuel lines up front, bolted the slave cylinder on, and ran the harness. It's about 3/4 the way hooked up.

List is slowly getting shorter :)

Just a few more pics. Nothing special.

Mounted the fuel pump in the trunk as I didnt find any nice places to do it under the car. I may mount a mercury switch on the fuel pump line in case I ever roll over for a little extra safety.
Image

harness ran in the engine bay. I used the stock starion gromet with a little pie cut out of it.
Image

The engine bay is definately getting tighter.

thanks mate. I picked up my miller 130xp on new years eve, and borrowed a friends metal bandsaw. I should get some work done in the intercooler and piping today.

I did a quick test weld on the miller in my apartment arage, and I didnt flip a breaker at max power, so I'm happy.

Got my turbo to intercooler hardpipe finished. Not the best, but it works. The hard part will be doing the intercooler to intake. I still need to either bead roll the ends or add a few spot welds, along with powder coat them.

Looking good. That thing's gonna be a rocket.

Incidentally, last Saturday I saw a Dodge Colt in the flesh for the first time. It was in some guy's driveway on Jodeco Road near me. A '77-'78 I think. White sedan with red stripes on the sides. Looked like either a very clean survivor or possibly restored.

When I get the insurance back on the Arrow I think I'll drive by and meet the owner and tell him/her about JNC if they're friendly.

sounds like stock colors.


anyhow,

I got bored and went to mess with the other side. Unfortunately my original plan of running a 2.5inch 180 bend off the throttle body wouldnt work as it hits the hood. So right now, I am running the stock ovcp and then I grabbed one of the stock starion cloth braided soft lines and cut it down a little to fit. Now I just need a 2.5 to 2inch coupling a 90 in 2inch. I'll eventually run 2.5 back across and to the stock ovcp, then maybe I can fit the 2.5 all the way to the tb, but for now, this will have to do.

Getting closer. All my piping is done and bolted in. If I keep up the work, I will probably have it running tomorrow.

After f'n with heads, I got pissed and ripped the engine back out, but still didnt see anything on number 2. I started pulling the rings off, I noticed a bit of a crack but I couldnt tell if it was cracked or scratched. I got down tot eh upper oil ring and popped it off, mind you all the rings are cherry. A friggan chunk of piston fell out. Looks lik the second ring land broke good. I guess those clevite pistons I bought were worth about as much as a chinese f'n hammer.

Well, I worked the entire last month, so I didnt get a chance to do any work on the car. I cleaned all the crap out of the garage and got the shortblock bolted back in the car. I took some time to do the timing belt on the old mans 97 civic today, which wasnt as bad as I thought it would be.


I'll probably get to putting the top end back in shortly. I think I may do a bit of cleaning around the engine bay before I get too much farther though.
