    Don't you guys just hate when little things that come by when swapping in your motor. I just swapped in my JDM GSR in my hatch and the little things are pissing me off. i have to cut and solder wires to make things fit, machine drill my VTEC O.P. sensor cuz the JDM one didn't have it, my distributo is a one plug instead of two, and as things are going great and i'm getting happy that i'm going to get to start my motor, the axles don't fit, and i have to go back to kragen and get the right ones. now that the axles aren't going to be here within the next 4 days, i'm pissed.

    it's the little things that make you remember why people PAY other people to do that crap...

    but, in the end, you'll be more stoked, because YOU did it.

    You didn't have 10 months worth of problems though. It just took you 10 months to overcome those problems. :)
