Well I'm gonna make this project as easy as possible to switch back to the original, so that when it's time for the yearly check (don't know what you call it) I hook up the original manifold, carb etc. Of course it's possible to pass those yearly tests/check, but it's like trowing dices, and if you get caught with it you have to restore it anyway and pay for one more time.
But then they usually don't really care if you have done some changes here and there, if it's been seriously done...
Well it's been a while since this rolling curse have done something, so instead someone smashed up one of my headlights. Ordered one I found from a scrapyard across the country for around $89, so I'm really happy now.....NOT!!
$89??? Jeez man, you can buy one here in Canada for $10.
I'm really enjoying your thread and all the pics. keep it up, thanks.
Ran into some damn problems today. If you look at the pics below you see the engine mount where the last pipe was suppose to go, and there's no damn way you could make anything fit... So now I'm thinking about cutting up the pipe in the collector and weld on a bend right from the bottom of the flange, to make it able to fit.
I were getting progress on the manifold, when I yesterday got a thought: "will the oil return be steep enough?"... It turned out that it would need to go almost horizontal to the oil pan, which is NOT an option. So, back to the start again (well almost).
I'm gonna make it like I was gonna do at first, with the turbo flipped the other way, and higher up.
Looks really messy, and it's really tight, but it will probably be great! The hose that's originally from the Trendy also fit perfectly on the turbo inlet
Made some space for the air filter I'm gonna use, just have to make a new bracket to the water-whatever-you-call-it-in-english

Use Lexus spark plug wires.. they're 4 or 5mm. Then build a bracket to hold them to the valve cover. What kind of clearance you got on the wastegate can? Looks like its touching ..! Remember its a rubber diaphragm in there. -Terry
deegore: I slept in my 2 door driving from AZ to MN. Some front seats that fold flat would be necessary to really get comfortable.

justytrudeau: FWD means you don’t have to worry about any problems that can come up with the AWD system. AWD is clutch in snowier climates, but the pre 90’s models have carbeuraters instead of being fuel injected. Carbs can cause some issues in the winter time.

justytrudeau: Anyone put LED's in their instrumental panel? I have to remove the whole dash to get to 'em, figured it'd put off having to do it again by a few years.

Justy1200cc: bredmirror, if you do it you would need the suzuki transmission. I think it's searchable on the forum for more details

bredmirror: Thats what Im planning to do. However, if the engine and the transmission won't fit then Im just gonna upgrade the stock engine and get a tubo kit for it.

justytrudeau: Just replaced my headlights with LED's as well as all my dashboard instrument cluster. None of them work, and now my taillights have gone out too. Likely wiring issue, eh?
