    Hi all, just purchased a 97 GST. I come from a Honda/ Subaru background. I've had both supers, and turbos. I found this GST on Craigslist for a great price, but comes with issues. (Possible crankwalk) Starting this Friday (4/29/16)I'm beginning the teardown and inspection process. I'm looking forward to a new mechanical journey, and will be leaning heavily on the DSM community for insights and advice. I also plan to start a YouTube channel dedicated to this process. I will post pictures and specs soon and look forward to where ever this build ends up.

    Here it is. The motor has been pulled. And the best I can tell the guy who had it before me tore it apart and got mad. Then he put it back together very sloppily. Any ways I found a spun main thrust bearing, a broken drivers side motor mount, stripped and missing bell housing bolts, and bad O-rings. I haven't broken the motor down yet, it took me this weekend by my self to pull the motor and tranny. Here's a few pics, nothing in particular. Just the tip of my personal 4g63 iceberg.

    Looks like a good starter car for DSM. Take your time, don't use cheap parts and you'll have a good car.

    I'd like to follow you on youtube !

    What's the channel address ?

    I'm just a 40 mile north of you, straight up 914 in Michigan.
