How heavy is the trans? How are you able to do it on jack stands?

I read somewhere on the DIY's it was 86 pounds. It felt like so. Yes, car should be jacked up stands ~ 18 inches though to slide the tranny out. So > 18" jack for tranny and = or > to support the engine via oil pan with padding.

I used a piece of wood on the tranny jack to give it a flat surface to balance on.

Started the turbo install. Still a long ways to go. I'll have to take a short break during the Christmas holiday. Many thanks to PTuning for putting in a ton of work to get these kits ready for end-user install.

Whiteline bushing installed.


Bumper removed... new living room centerpiece for a while.


Intercooler preview. Can't wait to get this installed.


Last look before I start the real work.


FIC 770cc fuel injectors installed.


Mud flaps installed.

Ya know, normally I give people crap about buying replica wheels, but you bought some baller-ass tires so you're excused!

Hah, thanks. I can't afford gold wheels, but gold sticky rubber is a must for the track ;-)

Not a daily yet, just a weekender and light track fun. Might be using it as a daily in the future. Yeah for sure, I've been wanting to go to 86 meets but I threw her up on stands as soon as I got her. Should be ready in a few weeks.

EcuTek cable and licence arrived in a neat case.


Oil return plate installed.


WeatherTech floor mats.


New sway bar and end-links.
