I can't get over how much I love the look of this car now. First and foremost I got the sealer on the tubs and had planned on having it fully primed, wet sanded and painted this weekend but those plans fell through... Maybe next week. On to everyones favorite thing.. PHOTOS!!

Decided that it was about time I start throwing my motor back together so I gathered all my parts and slowly begin putting parts on. This is my first time doing any of this so I decided to take my time and make sure everything was done the right way the first time.

timing cover and water pump on as well as harmonic balancer installed

and flipped back over. Everything is looking really good and I can't wait to get the valve covers and pulleys painted to match the engine bay. Im hoping for sunday but it might be next weekend... We shall see soon.

Slowly putting the motor back together and now I'm trying to figure out how to get custom power steering lines made.

and heres the new power steering bracket that I ordered a couple weeks ago. Not sure why I took such a bad photo but whatever lol you get the idea.

Last but not least I applied for a "racer" sponsorship through Mishimoto and got accepted. The first part that I ordered was a oil cooler and probably next year I will go ahead and order a new radiator to help with cooling if needed.

This kit was very well packaged and built to bolt onto a 1990 Ford Mustang GT. Obviously I ordered the kit due to the motor. To make it fit I had to bend a piece of aluminum and drill a few holes for a bracket and then I ended up welding the other side onto the front of the frame rail. It fits perfect and should get really good airflow to keep everything nice and cool.

Last but not least I finally made my way down to Orlando SpeedWorld to check out some local drifting. Heres a quick 1 minute video I threw together on Instagram.

Well I've been in Washington State now for a few weeks and its almost time to head back home for Thanksgiving. I did get a package in right before I left so I figured since I have time I would go ahead and throw you guys some more photos.

Started putting the engine bay back together. I still need to run the brake lines through the new tubs but its getting closer.

And the newest package to arrive...

Went to Washington state for a couple months for work but while I was there I ordered a speedway 22 circuit harness to help get everything wired up. Upon arrival home my father met me at my house and together we put my motor in and then back out and then back in one last time. Some how we managed not to scratch any of the paint.

Then I proceeded to pull the valve covers to spray as well as a couple of the pulleys and install the power steering.

I absolutely love how everything has come together to this point. The colors and all the parts were just an image in my head that is finally becoming a reality.

The FC truly is my favorite car of this time frame. Just the overall style of the car is enough to make me happy. Although I do wish they had the simple rear suspension setup of the S13.

Thank you though, I can't wait to get her up and running again.

Your oil cooler is upside down

You guys are both absolutely correct. I honestly didnt realize that it was and didn't think it matter but just in case I swapped it which makes its a lot safer anyway, I just flipped it over and shortened both lines up. Also installed the radiator and fan today. I must say that I am extremely happy that I measured and test fitted this thing before welding up the lower support. It fits perfect and gets plenty of airflow.

Radiator installed and a couple photos to show how much room i actually have left. Sorry for the horrible cell phone photos but its better than nothing I suppose.

The radiator is something I will be replacing this year with something new from Mishimoto, but for now in order to get her back up in running I will just continue to use this one. Ive never had overheating problems so it works fine but I know the Mishimoto one will work much better.
