Default 87 targa turbo 5-speed build

got an 87 turbo w/ 5spd and a targa top.

engine pulled the original 7mgte, tore it down to find a cracked cylinder and warped head. just bought a jdm 7mgte, and will swap sensors and whatnots from the old 7m. i also messed up the wiring harness and motor mounts while pulling out the oringinal motor. ive replaced to motor mounts.

as for the body:little bit of rust under driverside door moldin. someone bent in the passenger fender and my bro tried to pop the door open and f*ucked up the fender, i fixed it. passenger side molding isnt any good. front mud flaps are rusted. has a cracked tail light. license plate lights are missing. someone painted corner lights while i guess painting the bumper. needs new paint job, and tires

i have a stage 3 clutch and pressure plate along with new vaccum lines ready to go in

will take pictures as i progress.

That sucks about the cracked cylinder and warped head, I feel your pain.


What site did you order that motor from?

Whats up with the egr valve on that JDM motor?

I like the starter just hanging there.

I was planning on buying a JDM 7M and building it to run close to 1 bar of boost. I found a site that sells them for $700 + shipping.
