    Gordo, I'm curious about that drill bit boris posted. If it's high molybdenum then it must be an alloy steel, and from what I know they aren't good tool steels. I'm no machinist but I'd assume that the obvious choice would be a HSS bit and that their description of this bit being great for cutting hard steel is bs. Would you ever use an alloy steel bit like that over a high speed steel one? edit: obviously it’s an alloy, more specifically assuming that means it’s one with little to no carbon content.

    Rear fit is crazy good.

    Mediocre at Cresst - now with nsfw autophilia

    Learned that one the hard way. Trying to swap and daily a car without cash to blow is a fools errand.

    Needs more wheel and less tire.

    Looks good man, any room to go forward on the mounts? Also, is the trans all the way inside the frame rails? If so that's money.

    Humans are such easy prey

    Old setup was faster but the vtec 1j makes all the right sounds.

    Is your boat named "Like'n it wet"?

    They're cheap and relatively tough. Far as I can tell that's about it. Won't be cheap for long now that there are enough kits out for the less mechanically inclined to figure out how to swap them. Vtec 1j's are up like 50% from when I bought mine now that there's enough info out there for those same dummies to figure our how to wire them up.

    Curious to see how everything fits with the auto trans bell adapter. Going with the mavericks kit was a huge mistake, second only to going CD in the first place. Hopefully you don't ruin your car as much as I ruined mine. At least you don't have an abortion shifter.

    Gotta love those shitty old electrolytic caps. Tow home from LA must have been spendy too, that shit sucks man. Why get another oem ecu? Seems like a perfectly good excuse to start the snowball and go standalone and single "while you're in there".

    The factory mud guards really do it for me. Looks perfect.

    Someone mentioned to me that some toyota 4x4 r&p gears may fit in the stock pumpkin (maybe 4runner?). Doesn't help much if you want a taller rear gear though, they're all shorter gears for the big tire moab bros. I looked, but not very hard. Also my gearing didn't bother me much but I had mondo tires on the back, something like 255/55 if memory serves, and I like having a useless 6th gear for the highway.

    Cost me a hell of a lot less than that. Pretty much the only reason I went cd. Still convinced I would have had to hunt pretty hard to do an r154 for much less and fuck the w58.

    Abortion shifter didn't do me any favors across the board really. But fuck it I built it myself for free and it worked, not very well, but worked. Bearing plate width and height is the bear. But I've seen it done with the center console left intact. Far as I can tell cutting and welding is unavoidable. Some other dude here ran into the same thing in his x100. Don't remember who though. Everybody knows the death wheel is the only cutting tool you'll ever need, right?

    Yeah I got that fucker in, wasn't easy. You can find my thread but the long and short of it is that the bearing plate is so fucking big I had to cut and raise the entire rear section of the tunnel to get the trans above the frame rails, had to cut out most of the center console to clear the mondo tunnel and ruined the interior of my car. So yeah Rue pretty much hit the nail on the head. To my credit as far as I know I was the first to do this in a street driven x8, but I'm a hack and others have since done it better. As far as gearing I actually wasn't displeased with the results, though I wanted to go to a taller rear gear for cruising.
