On to the MTX swap :)
this is the garage i had to work with, so i spend all day cleaning it out to bring the parts car in. i had to tow the blue one in.
yes, i still have the coke machine :)
cleaning the floors..
the tire collection keeps growing...
had to get 4 6 ton jack stands to lift the car enough to pull the trans from underneath.
and my small collection of tools
had a real fun time trying to get the axle bolt off.. 5ft breaker bar and all it did was turn the wheel with the weight of the whole car on that one wheel...
next attempt was trying to cut it off...
I finally gave in and bought some nice air tools! (5hp engine, with a 625ft/lbs impact gun) Got the bolt off first try. and a couple hours later, the transmission was out!
and now for the painstaking process of the MTX swap..
new painted trans (that ended up blowing 6 months later..no pics of my last trans swap..)
New stage 2 clutch!! :))
trans front and rear mount inserts
and i welcome the new year (2010) with pulling my new manual zx2 out of the garage!
