No major updates, fixed my door sagging issues on both doors also added new door seals. What a pain to remove the old pins, lots of hammering and drilling. Painted my side emblems and added my IG decal onto my fuel cell. IG: 4G63LUV

Thanks Jeremy!
Made a few updates and cruise shots. Relocated my coil pack under the evo 8 manifold with zero issues using JMF relocation bracket. Also made a cover piece wrapped in carbon to cover up my ECU and wiring. I still want to clean up the wiring in the engine bay.

Did you make the dimple-die valve cover center? I would love some dimple dies but they are so damn expensive everywhere. I'd love to know if somebody finds a place that isn't a million dollars for them.

Also - great looking work/truck as always



UPDATE: Back on page 6 - I asked the same question - and you got it on ebay. lol Bummer!

Couple of weeks ago lol
Happy Free Ride Friday! #readyforliftoff
Had a minor electrical issue where #LUVLEE didn't want to start. Towed home and started right up at home lol, keyless ignition issue got fixed. At least nothing major, she is back on the road.

Not the lift I wanted to do on the luv today lol. Transmission decided to come out because it only wanted to stay in 1st. Not bad to drop out of this luv with a 4g63 connected to it. It's nice to have friends in high places, thanks for letting me use the lift and a flat bed trailer.

Yup the problem was the automatic, never used one or know how to use it so it blew up haha. True story too...
I didnt know it needed a vacuum line or a kick down cable, drove with it for about 1000 miles then it started slipping, poor trans.

Its not too bad. I wish it was fully auto but only shifting from 2nd to 3rd or 3rd to 2nd 90% of the time. 1st gear is hard from 1-2. Makes it a little squirrely at the top of the rpm shifting from 1-2. @ low rpm 1-2 it shifts harsh due to the nature of the manual valve body. So I stay in 2nd & 3rd driving around town. Definitely need better suspension, which hopefully I get to during the winter. I have front coilovers on hand already.
So far couple hundred miles on the trans, so far so good...

Excellent to hear! Is there a reason you went with a manual valve body?

Kevin Jewer suggested it to me, and it would eliminate all the vacuum modulator and kickdown cable. So no more worrying about those things.
