So I'm kicking around an idea. I have a FMIC & I'm thinking about using pvc for the piping. I know usually you use aluminum but I'm on a tight budget. I have used pvc wrapped in header wrap before for cold air intakes & never had a problem. I would appreciate any input on this. Thanks

I don't know if anyone is still reading this thread but here goes. The auto trans blew up Friday so I started the swap. I got the 4lug disc brake rear in, the hydraulic clutch setup in, the engine & T5 in just have to hook everything up. I have roughly 35-40 hours into the swap so far. Once I get it done I'll try to get some vid & pics up.

If I can get off work early today I'm gonna try to get everything hooked up, try to get her fired up. Still gotta get a bigger fuel pump and hook up the rear breaks.

If you want to see all the pics of the build so far check out Griffin1781 on photobucket. As soon as I figure out how to get the link I'll put it up.

So I came to the conclusion that it's more than likely that the ecm is fried, now to find another one.

I tried to run a self test on the ecu & got nothing. It won't throw any codes. I have checked a couple of different things to make sure it's getting power & it is. Not throwing codes is a pretty sure sign that it's fried. I'm gonna get another one & make sure. I figure it can't hurt.

New ecu & still nothing. So I'm gonna drop the steering column & start checking wires.
Is the engine turning over?
