The official FullThrottle build thread (56K Forget About It)

Ok heres the thread you've all been waiting for. I'm guessing that my engine that I purchased from RandD should be here by Friday march 23 so this is going alot quicker then i expected it to. I'm going to be posting pictures and comments of everything that I do please feel free to ask questions I'll do my best to answer your questions or comments. I'm sure RandD among others will be monitoring this thread so what i can't answer im sure he will chime in. I do ask that we keep the banter out of this thread or keep it to a minimum. I dont mind constructive criticism but lets try and keep this thread serious please. BTW those who asked for pics of my engine that i pulled are going to have to wait untill tomorrow because i couldnt get out there this evening. I'm going first thing in the morning.

I'll start it off. What are your plans right now? Pistons (what compression), cam (what grind), valves, springs, retainers, and also are you staying S/C, swapping to turbo, or going twin?

I guess a basic rundown on your project would be good.

Damn, my engine looks all naked and sh*t without the connectors and bolt ons. lol

Do you have everything as far as parts that you are going to need for the swap or are some still on order? When do you think this bad boy should be done and burning rubber down the track? You better call me and let me listen to her purr.

So are you staying with the 2.4L tranny or are you using the one from the RL? I am wondering because of all the people asking for a review on the Exedy.

I don't see why he would use a weaker transmission than the MU3....
