    Been a very long time since I've updated this thread. I'll post dates to match when I made these updates on Kystreets.

    12/03/14

    This wire here has me concerned.



    I can't find anything online about that specific wire (brown w/ yellow strip). And I'm not even sure which pinout it's been pulled from. I'm thinking it's from the far right, bottom corner.



    All I find online is that it should be a red wire running from that pinout for + 12v. Well I don't see a red wire at all.

    Money can take you far, but respect can't be replaced.

      Well it's only been four months since I've thought anything about the car, so today while I was waiting on Cole I decided to remove a few more things from the engine bay to prepare for the engine/trans removal.



      What you see is the factory airbox, VAF, battery, battery tray, and engine wiring harness. I've still got another seperate harness for trans, o2 sensors, a/c, and other misc. stuff to remove as well.

      This is how the engine bay appears now.

          My Megasquirt system arrived for the Protege today. Guess now I need to order my turbo.



          Since I'm off next week I'll work on that car all week. Got to pull the old shortblock (head's already off) and SOHC transmission/axles. Then install the DOHC GTX engine, trans, axles, intercooler, charge pipes, plug in the Megasquirt, write a startup tune, and start pulling my hair out from there.

                          And it's all out.








                          Tomorrow will be cleaning the car inside and out, along with the engine bay. Also going to start prepping the GTX motor and trans for the swap.

                              Not a real update, but spent yesterday evening cleaning the crossmember/cradle, the old SOHC transmission, and work area in general.

                              I'm going to pull the 5th gear out of the SOHC trans and install it in the DOHC GTX trans. It equals out to better fuel economy due to the "longer" gearing.
