Motor is Out.

So I pulled the motor out today.

Alex, Matt, Dennis, and Scott rolled by to chill and help out.

The old motor was in such bad shape it was not even funny. There was oil pooled up between the valve covers. fucking gross. Also, the motor mounts just tore in half as we pulled the motor out (WTF) so i am looking to buy some new ones, does anybody know of any aftermarket examples besides Megan?

Alex was allowed free reign of the camera all day so here are the pics he took.

beto said...

sorry my man...cant really find any motor mounts for your car:-(exept megan racing...have you checked local auto parts stores for stock replacements or going the after market route?
what coilover are you using?powered by max?

henry! said...

Yes, i already ordered Prothane FLCA bushings, The coilovers are indeed Parts shop max, and i am pretty set on 97-98 TT supra mounts, i am hoping to find some for around $50 each.

This is Yuta BTW, too lazy to log out.

beto said...

cool cool...glad I could help if I did.how are those parts shop max coilovers?been thinking in getting some for my s13 when income allows.haha can't believe I called them powered by max...well good luck on the motor mounts dilemma...ill definately be scoping out the SC build

Yuta Akaishi said...

oh dude, powered by max is the same as parts shop max.

i have yet to drive on them, but when i do i will let you know.

Henry, however has the S13 ones on his S12, and he likes them but he wishes he went with stance. But this may be a case of the grass is always greener?

beto said...
