Got the mounts on and oil pan dropped
Bay cleaned out
Bell housing is dropped
Waiting for a few more parts
Hoping to hear they are in today. If not tomorrow

Not looking the best to have it running by Sunday
Hard when short on hands

I'll take some pics in the next few days of everything

alright here is an update for everyone

Before easter my storage unit was broken into
Luckily the big things were still there. But they took all my tools and random bolts and stuff. Slightly pissed me off
But
Oil pan is on
Slave cylinder is done with right fittings and lines.
New master cylinder with fittings is on
Motor is in the car finally
After a bit of trouble

Headers are on mounts tightened and trans mount on

After a few hiccups its looking pretty good

Here are some pics I have taken



Jill was a big help threw everything
she took the sway bar off by herself. And she helped pound out the transmission tunnel




Got my swap parts in






Jill put the sway bar on herself too

So the wiring is done and he each is tuned
I am waiting for a piece to come in today so I can finish the fuel system
and get a line made today also
Then finish up the clutch line stuff

There will be more work done this weekend
With my businesses starting I'm hoping to have time to finish it soon

Nice progress! I love the V8 swap. Its on top of my swap list at the moment, whenever I get around to it. That,s awesome you got lucky enough to get an entire setup from a car like that. I've seen that the truck motorsets can be had for fairly cheap, but that means sourcing a MT, accessories, intake manifold etc from a car anyway.

Anyway, keep us updated!

Thanks.
And your right about the truck stuff

I went into this swap kind of blind folded
Got it for a good price so I figured why the hell not

If everything goes smooth (which it won't)
Should get started up by the end of the month

I have parts for you....

Tick Performance F'd up and sent me another order from someone else when I ordered my shims.  It's no big deal, just 15/16 3rd/4th billet keys and springs for the T-56, but my trans is already built, and Tick told me to keep them or give them to someone that needed them when I called to let them know.

Took the car out of storage
Its back on all 4 tires ( looking for s14 5 lug or z32 wheels

Fuel pump is wired up ready to drop in

Waiting to get my hands on an intake
And drop my radiator and fans in

And looking pretty good to start up

Well got the fans mounted on the radiator
Got upper and lower hoses
Still need to wire the fans
I am getting my hands on some z32 wheels
I purchased an intake

And ordered an o2 extension since I found out the hard way you can't solder the actual wires of the o2 sensor

Hoping to maybe have it started on my birthday (July 10th)

Awesome!

One question, and I apologize if you covered it earlier, but how is the wiring handled for your swap? I assume you have the engine harness and ECU from the donor car, but do you have to hard-wire it into the 240 chassis harness at all (for fuel pump/ignition?)?

When your all finished, I would love to see it first hand! I'm sure it would help me make a decision as to which swap I want to do.

Yes no problem
I got the stock ecm from the caramo tuned with the basic deleting theft shit and rear o2 sensors and stuff

And I sent the harness from the 240sx (engine upper and lower) and the hardness from the ls1 to a friend
He did it all for me

But if you look online like ls1tech and v8silvia (per 600sx)
They have a shit ton of info

Look at his build too

Good deal. The pro 5.0 shifter w/ a steeda handle worked well for me.

But a rig of a shifter will have to do for now
