Nope. It has to be tightened to the block first. Heater hoses have to come off to get to the block side with a wrench. Hoses are not accessible once the turbo is on. This car was not designed in favor of the mechanics.Can you put your flange and everything on before dropping it in and then do your lower connection with all that put together?
You aren't wrong, but I feel like I took my time on every aspect of this thing and just got completely shit on by entirely unrelated parts. It's bullshit. I only pushed in the sense of not quitting, but now I'm thinking about it. Spending the money that would otherwise go into a transmission and a GTP on a down payment for a new truck sounds pretty nice right now. I wish I 3800/TKX swapped this thing like I initially considered. Better yet, I wish it sold to the couple people who asked me about it last summer.Don't you have a perfectly good Camaro for a backup? You need to stop stressing yourself on this thing. Pushing too hard only results in broken parts and hurting your own feelings.
I feel like I remember you telling me the same thing at one point so just returning the favor lol
She's toast. Crunching, grinding, slipping, no more shifting. Still a 200-4rthe trans was just low? or she hurt now?
I can yank it no problem. I just don't know if I trust myself to set up the TV cable and all that right.oh, woof.
able to yank it out? and whats your time frame?
I thought I wasn't supposed to be cutting corners on this one. A BOP TH350 would be cheap and strong, but OD/lock-up or bust. I need those interstate gears.Will the speedway adapter and a th350 thing work with the earlier 3.8s like it does with our newer ones? I know you can do better things but it might be quick and do what you want it to without spending a lot right now?
This, there's so much I'd like to do or get done but any time I push, things go sideways. Better to just do it as it comes than to speed through it and screw things up you'll have to fix later.It may take a few months your side gal is there for you. Don't rush it.....
Press and hold the button, hold the throttle to WOT, and release the button, right?
Well shit. My method probably just killed it more then. lol I think a Jimmy build is the only thing worth doing if I have to throw the car on a trailer anyway. That's the thing though. I have neither a trailer nor a tow vehicle. It's not stopping me for getting the trans rebuilt, but at the same time it kind of is. I've put off getting a good truck for way too long.Press the button, shove the cable all the way in, release the button and then press the throttle WOT and it will shelf adjust. Some people push back in one click to firm it up a little.
Jimmy's in Union Grove is the place to go.
A THM350 will fit, but will need the correct crossmember. Just get the 200-4r redone.
