    :frantic: DO WANT!

    The body looks like it's in pretty good shape! The ones I've seen for sale, especially in this area are rusted out real bad. This thread will be a nice reminder that I need to find one before all of them end up in the scrap yard.

    Awesome work though! It really looks great.

    Looks like a blue top, plus I saw the TVIS badge in the intake. Highly recommend a blacktop if you have the cash. Usually you can find one for $800. Totally worth it. Unless your going SR20DET or what I plan to hopefully do and go with a F20C swap.

    Nice Progress! You wouldn't happen to know if the FA20 from the FRS/BRZ would fit in one of these?

    It would have to be an entire drivetrain swap. I doubt the bell housing would mate up correctly. At that point you might as well swap something else in.

    Melissa and i did a bunch of work on the 86 in the garage today! we went to harbor freight and bought some tools and later decided that we should get a space heater to work in the garage, not bad it was about 50* in there with the heater on.

    here is the motor that i got along with the SR downpipe
    [​IMG]

    taking the old turbo and manifold apart
    [​IMG]

    SR T25 Turbo
    [​IMG]

    Test fitting and the manifold is for a top mounted turbo for a MR car, so i need a new manifold

    Updates!!
    motor mounts are on so hopefully the motor will be back in the car this weekend!!!!
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    it will fill this space...
    [​IMG]

    the old motor needed to have some things taken off of it, now it is looking rather bare
    [​IMG]

    also i got the Toms AFC from japan today! it looks rad but that is it for now, i still need to do some reading up on this
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    this is the little bastard that i could not find for months!!! got two of them from some cat down in TX
    [​IMG]

    now some questions! ( for the other forums)
    this is one of the vacuum lines off of the back of the intake manifold, and IDK what it goes to
    [​IMG]

    a larger vacuum line dose this one go to the breather or the brake booster?
    [​IMG]

    on the bottom of the TVIS idk what this vacuum line goes to
    [​IMG]

    Lines on the throttle body, Coolant?
    [​IMG]

    on the back of the motor, coolant, but it looks like it should be a vacuum line
