    Uhhh...a cold air intake or a strut bar shouldn't be hard to find, there's about a bazillion for sale on eBay and other websites.

    Check out Import Replacement Parts. They usually have pretty decent prices and free shipping.

    After starting engine

    After i started the engine after the swap i had black smoke comming from the exhaust is that normal, black drip was on the ground also does anyone know what it could be?


    Also what do i ask for when getting the ecu pins for the computer? what size are they and were to get them?

    I also have a check engine light on?

    Smoke comming from near the front were the a/c is, i wonder if its because of the a/c not having anything in it or what?

    If anyone can also give me any hints on what to do next would be great.

    your engine probably sat for years before you got it. The smoking under the hood is probably grease and dust burning off as your engine gets hot. Thats what happened to me. As to the black smoke, it could be the car blowing off excess carbon buildup, or it could be running rich. Give it some time to settle in and see if it changes.
