I was trying to figure out all day what was causing my brake pedal engaging the starter. I doubt any one will ever have to go through this unless there's a short somewhere. I don't know what was different, but I saved myself hours of removing my harness in the car. I found a green wire that a cut behind the radio and my brakes worked normal and my starter functioned normal. I don't know if it was the year differences or the swapped engines. I'm just glad that I didn't get to far because those clips were breaking. I got the dash right back in last night and all is normal.

Took a couple pictures test fitting my bumper. The passenger side is all tweaked so the headlight sits funky. I'm kind of all over the place with this build. I start messing with the exhaust and end up fiddling around with the hatch or interior. I still have way to much to do, it's tough to focus on one thing.

Well I got the car running nice and smooth. After hooking up the exhaust I had a really nasty lifter tick. I'll be swapping the better lifters I had lying around.

Incredible progress and awesome build. Major props. It’ll be well worth the effort when all is said and done! Keep plodding on!
Thank you! Everyone's support means alot. Progress on the car has really slowed down. I'm just trying to make it as legit as I can.

I finally have a video of it running. The idle is a little high. I don't have the alternator or my gauges hooked up yet. That's next on the list. The tps also has to be dialed in I forgot to mention that thing was replaced.

It's been awhile but the swap is 100 percent complete. It runs but I'll have to sort out the idle surge it currently has. It has no leaks and everything is factory setup so it shouldn't be to hard to diagnose.

Looks like a lot of fun times, those older cragar style wheels look amazing

So I swapped throttle bodies with another I had laying around and it seems to be idling alot better. I still have to mess with the tps a little since I screwed with that.

I finished making the brake lines for the front. Next on the list is hopefully a solid test drive.

Nice work, we have the same control arms. Once it’s don’t you should ride with those cragars

Yeah I had to buy those control arms because the car was so tweaked, there not bad. Thanks for the compliment on the wheels. I was going to buy new ones but I'm for sure keeping them on the car. They grew on me for sure.

If their wide enough slam some slicks on them. Unless your not racing then rotary tool polish them out

Yeah I wasn't planning on racing it right now anyways. I want to enjoy the summer with it since it's been 2 long years. I'm definitely going to polish them up and get some new tires on, I like the white letter to so I'm going to try to find a set.

Firestone or Cooper might be the best bet for lettering. I’ve used westlake branded tire from either Amazon or Mavis and their pretty good for the price

Well the shake down runs were successful tonight. I will now have to figure out my weird boost situation. I also have a weird 1st gear grind and the transmission developed a nice leak. I think before I dive into the trans I'll get it running and driving perfect first.

I've been taking it easy on the car but I finally have over 100 miles on the build. The more I drive it the better things seem to get. I also got my exhaust all hooked up and it sounds great. Next up is body work and paint.

Gotta say man, you’re an inspiration. You have no idea how long we have had to endure 420a guys asking how hard it would be to 4G63 swap their cars. And here you are, busting it out in like 30 minutes. LOL.

Legit though all jokes aside an inspiration. You kicked ass here and I feel bad about myself for not having my talons engine out yet. LOL.

Thanks man that means alot. I know what I was getting myself into when I started, and you were right it was well worth it. I couldn't be happier with it. I'm glad I documented it all. I'm also glad everyone was really supportive, I think that's what really kept me going.

Good job man! Seems like you completed this pretty fast for someone doing this at home and it doesn’t look hacked. For the first gear grind, is it when you put it in gear? Have you tried adjusting the master rod?

Thank you! I'm really happy how it turned out. I'm glad I did the manual swap also it's way more fun. The first gear grind kind of went away, it shows up once in awhile. I'll try adjusting that rod, I think it's out a ways so it would reach the master.

Tonight I wired up my slim fan to the stock plug. I found an old connector that plugged in to retain the factory harness. I'm trying keep as much factory wiring as I can since it was in such nice shape.
