Picked up the drive train for the coupe. Got it from Bill at Foreign Engines. It's a S15 SR20DET with 6 speed :) Figured since it's for the coupe I figured I better get the good one. Although it seems cool getting a front clip is more a pain than anything else. I'm going to put whats left of it on CL for free, hopefully someone takes it. Other wise I gotta chop it up. I spent today pulling the motor out. Thanks to Squirl for bringing it home for me. Wow it was exciting unloading it. Somehow we did it. Here are some pics.

Added some weld nuts for the IC

Got everything mocked up. Still adjusting in this picture though. Think I might pain the IC black on this build. Hide it a little better.

Had to move the rad inlet, hopefully it will work there. I check on Franks car but who knows.

Making the pipe a size I can get couplers for... Stupid pipe and tube being differently measured.

Ground clamp broke mid project, this seemed to work rather well actually :)

Frank washed my motor for me.
