    Yes, that is me wrong trans dude..

    eng/trans will be dropped in about two weeks from now. need to pass emissions first. right now the engine was taken apart,
    belts, t-stat, all gaskets were changed(valve cover, oil pan, dist o-ring, vtec solenoid) and anything in between thats needed. block, head, intake, trans were all cleaned.

    looking 100x better...

    Very clean. Some side markers would look nice.

    Where did you get your motor from? Not saying it's a lemon but damn, no distributor, no itr header, no itr flywheel? And now you gotta run an ebay clutch kit and flywheel...?

    Hope everything turns out ok...

    Try to keep up, noob. Looks like theres a header, but still no distributor. And no confirmation on a flywheel.

    You work fast man, keep up the good work.

    Looks good with those GSR Blades! My Ex bought a new DB8 GSR in 99. I lowered it....she hated it :)
    I do remember it being small feeling between the doors when I got in and out. (I'm 6'2" but my hatch is so much easier)

    Love the motor swap! Is it 96 or 98+ spec?

    In your other thread.....I saw a distributor too :shrug:

    My bad, forgot it was essential to keep up on everyone's threads. It's not like life exist outside of HS. What was I thinking? My apologies once again...

    OP - When I first got my DB8 I planned on doing an ITR swap as well but circumstances changed so the plans had to change :( Good luck finishing yours up :thumbsup:

    it is a complete swap, some items that i will be swapping over from the other engine over to the ITR, like the dist have a MSD w/external coil, vtec unit(solenoid, oil press switch) jdm missing oil pressure switch. got a 12lb flywheel. i got the p73 ecu but will be running a P06 ecu with ITR basemaps.
