Fridays and Saurdays in Rockville at the parking lot where Sports Authority/Barnes & Noble is.

PS Did anyone come to that engine assembly? I just read about it today and it looked like it wouldve been a good time.

Yeah, HaloCoupe, 06NighthawkAV6 and bbc showed, but unfortunatly I did not get the right bearings, so we could not go too far, but the right ones are on the way.

We were all talking about getting together more often at my place to do work on our vehicles, I guess the other guys thought my garage was pretty well equiped :D , or maybe it was my wifes cooking.

LOL, you and HaloCoupe both have suspensions to be put on, maybe we need to pull together for a suspension day.

And yes I can help, I have all the tools except an alighnment machine to do the work.

As far as a 5sp swap, are you in a V6 or I4 now?

Hell we can also easily do a turbo on that.
Thats actually my plan, but im no rush for boost right now. I just wanna swap the tranny 1st and suspension work. Boost will probably be in the fall/winter. But I have a bunch of other parts that need to go on like pulleys, engine damper, and poly-urethane motor mount inserts. There all in one corner of my room just sittin there. I already hae i/h/e.

Really good to hear, I would not have put a turbo on anyway until suspension and braking were brought up to handle the power anyway. I have seen too many kids slap turbos on thier Civics and end up killing themselves because of brake/suspension failures, I may not be able to control the driver, but I can atleast give them 1/2 a chance.

Planning, planning, planning..
First you need a good plan of where you want to take the vehicle and then stick to it.

Halo, clean out your mailbox and hold up, I do not think that the CL engine will bolt up to the tranny, see if you can get the engine code. I will be driving for the next 4 hours and will try to check the forum when I get there, otherwise call me.

That is a good question, when do you guys want??

Also it is looking like (but not etched in stone yet) I will be moving to a new house in Sterling, VA with a oversized 2 car garage :D and no HOA to deal with. I am shooting for the last week of July/1st week of August. This will finally give me enogh room to rebuild my shopm including a lift :D .
