      Well it's been a while since my last post. All things said, the car has been running great. I have put approximately 2K miles on since the swap and it's finally feeling broken in. Here are a few pics since pulling her out of storage. Next on the list is some over due rust repair and I guess the catch can set-up is working well...lol. Mostly water...can't imagine all that going back into sump.















      Yuck!!!

        Looking good! Do you have a shop lined up for the rust repair?

          Shopping around. I was considering tackling on my own, but with current economic situation, I may throw my local body shop some work.

            Just wanted to see if there was a better way of doing this so I dont have to re-thread a sensor every time I may need to replace it.

              It's been a while, but I'm I'm pretty sure we ordered a obd1 blue sensor, and i only re-threaded the brown e30 temp sensor. but this depends on the cylinder head you have. some have two ports some have three. re-threading the sensor is a PITA but with a new sharp die helps a lot.

                Thanks, Yeah i was trying to find a way that I wouldn't have to rethread the temp sensor. Thank you!

                  Took some time last night to replace the OBC and cracked HVAC panel and install a spare radio I had laying around in the garage. I don't like that it has blue background, but I do like that it was "free"..lol

                    Hope everyone has been staying safe! Thankfully, work has been busy. Finally sneaked in a few minutes this weekend and last to start cleaning up the engine bay. Replaced the hood insulation, found a s52 vanity cover that didn't cost more than the motor, and finally decided on a intake setup (Thanks castros !)






                    And then snuck in a drive before dark...lol
