To Lubbock, Tx. And it was great! Got a usual truck and car trailer(for my car)
While my brother drove the rental truck, I drove his Acura rsx, and my girlfriend drove her celica.

Trip was a lot of fun and went fast( was 7 hours) got in at about midnight and the next day I headed to my home town (Dallas,Tx) for New Years party(5 hours) had a great time! And won some money at a private poker table.

Well today I got everything in. The snow finally let up enough to let me hook everything up I also took my new bumper to the paint shop to get painted and ordered my radiator support, chin spoiler, SR performance clutch adjuster kit and headlight nose panel. everything should be here by Saturday or Monday except the nose panel AM didn't have it in stock but on the bright side I should be able to fire her up by Sunday hopefully!

Well after a month after me first posting I got my car running! Today we started and drove it. It handles better with the spring but we are gonna raise it a few inches Colorado is a bumpy state. It feel like it has a lot more power and it sounds better also. Overall it was worth waiting for everything it made the first ride way more rewarding. Tomorrow I will put up a exhaust video.

Well it looks like im on the hunt for another engine as well. i have found a few for mid 1500s but are higher mileage than the one currently in.

I was thinking of a Mach motor but it's almost double that!

How much a PITA to remove the engine?

Well we removed the tranny with the engine at the same time to do the clutch. But we had to remove almost everything in front of the motor including the radiator support. So if you have a cherrypicker and a few hydro jacks it not too hard just have another person to help guide the motor out.
