Goin run to the junkyard and see what I can find. But For the 20seconds it was running it sounded good.

I'm giddy as a schoolgirl this thing actually started!

Got the coolant hose from the local pick n' pull for 2$. Sounded fair to me! Looked for other cool stuff in the junkyard for a bit since I was there but no luck. O well, I also got an egr coolant hose.

Well after a couple trips around the block, all looks well. Clutch works fantastic. I found bleeding the new slave very easy with reverse bleeding. Took all of about 3 minutes compared to when I did the Master cylinder that took hours to bleed.

Second, Car is LOUD with the header on, I think i'll get a Catalytic converter put in after the flex and move the res farther back. That should quite it down a nice bit.

Still need to get Tom a datalog. I threw a CEL on the way home Both for Bank 1 Sensor 2. Not surprising since there isn't one plugged in. Need to get wideband routed through the firewall as well. Need this ASAP for tune.

Oil Pressure light is on, I think this is due to me reusing the fusion one. I'm doing an oil change in 1000 miles and will replace it then since it requires draining the oil anyways. Engine sounds great and dipstick reads good so I'm not worried about oil pressure. I'm going to leave some cardboard under it tonight to check for leaks, but initially it all looks good.

Don't have to drain oil to replace a pressure sensor, that's nothing to guess at so take care of it ASAP.

Rule of thumb is to crank an engine until you get pressure/light goes out before first firing.

Huh, didn't know that I'll get it changed by tomorrow

I'd agree with you if it was a new engine, being used however and likely sitting for less than year, I imagine it was fine. I filled it with oil by pouring the first large gallon over the camshafts and everything with the valve cover off. Thing fired up with no issue, didn't even struggle finding idle right out of the gate.

Well did a spot test last night to see if anything was leaking by putting cardboard underneath. No leaks as of yet will probably keep that up for a week or so just to make sure. Everything is going smoothly at this point. Need to get a firewire cable to hook up the wideband as well as drill through the firewall to let the cable through.

EDIT: updated first post with tools required and final costs for those interested.
