    Seems to be a few others building up N/T DSMs for road course/autocross lately. Might not get a ton of hp out of them, but you also won't have to battle the heat issues the turbo cars generate. Should be fun. Keep this build thread updated and share your installs here. ;)

    Suspension before power is my motto! It’s really fun running around the track flat out! G-forces are fun. Good luck and there’s a ton of great info on here from guys that have done/are doing it now.

    Head cover (actually) - new cover gasket, painted, oil pan fixed from rust and repainted to red, new pan gasket, new oil Castrol Edge 5w40 + K&N oil filter, new air filter, new transmission silentblock + lower engine beam removed rust and been repainted, new bolts.

    All changes were made in november 2019.

    Now engine just needs to change clutch fluid (cause former owners used engine oil as fluid to clutch *facepalm*), new power steering hose from compressor (leaking).

    Then we can start make something for power.

    You must flush your clutch lines, master and slave, oil will damage all rubber seals and make sure you do it until it is all clear.
    Do not use anything else like mineral spirits, acetone, lacquer thinner etc.
    You clean them, flush them with denatured alcohol, better known as wood alcohol, hope no damage has been done.
