Small lil update: I got a side skirt via Jack (Jippi) a couple weeks ago, still waiting to put it on though.

You know it takes all of 20 minutes to swap them right?

Also did a walkaround and exhaust clip. First time really making a video by hand so I need to work on smoother movements.

SO this is apparently unlocked!

Quick update...still not M66 swapped! Been busy focusing on other things. I still hope to get all the parts together for it and drive up to Ben to have it done.

In my absence, I have done a few other things to the R. Kaplan rear coilovers with QA1 rear shocks, Snabb RIP kit, and I have a P2R fuel rail cover to clean up/paint and throw on as well. 

I posted in the off topic thread a while back about this, but I also installed a DO88 radiator and Ebay drop in IC.

 

My current inventory for the M66 swap is

  • P1 M66
  • Shifter and cables
  • x70 pedal assembly
  • 99 XC passenger axles
  • Flywheel
  • Pressure plate

I still need a drivers axle, brackets, seals, fluids, all the other misc parts, and a Ford Probe clutch.

When I get it tuned (Steve-o), I'm thinking 18psi. If that's the case, I'll probably upgrade my 19T with billet comp wheel, 9blade turbine, and Kinuguawa WG actuator. Maybe a Synapse CBV/BOV.

Don't forget a new collar gear sleeve thing, clutch position sensor, delrin subframe bushings (if that isn't already done).

I prefer to reference is as a 87 RX-7 Turbo clutch because it sounds cooler! 

If your dash doesn't rattle now it will when your done, said in some other threads as well but I need to do that fiberglass reinforcement to the back as the extra flex from removing so much center console really stressed out the back end. 

My smaller 18t turbo was well maxed out at 18psi so the upgrade might be worth while. You will more then likely need a s60R maf as the stock one won't be able to read all the air the turbo pulls in with a full tune. If you have an after market airbox it won't fit until you widen the hole.
