Well, got the power steering line tightened up. Did notice that my 300M cluster produces the 'Brake' light and 'Airbag' so I have snagged the cluster from parts car number 3 (also auto stick) to swap gauge faces onto later.

Was unable to get bolted to the Torque converter, due to lack of lighting and having to rip apart my front end to access the power steering line. Going out tonight to tackle the torque converter and compile a list of 'need to grab' for the car yet.

It's relatively easy, run some wires, cut a hole and bolt it in.

I will get some footage of the spitfire now that she is hooked up. She has just enough of a snarl under light load that it has already scared a few small children lol

I sat down and I figure if I put all of the time I 'actually' worked on the swap, (not putzing around with other crap) I could have had it done in about 4 working days lol. I just spread the work load out from like April til last week

So I have 1000kms on the engine since the swap, and I am having an oil leak issue. Have it narrowed down to the dipstick tube o ring. Anyone have a guess what size it is??

Also, is it a complete wiring harness swap over to get the 300M's climate control? or is it just a section that is plug and play??

Still have to swap in my HID's, chrome handles, do the fix for P0551 and I shouldn't be throwing any codes either. Have to swap a couple pieces of glass as well and maybe pick up some paint for a small idea I have..

Pictures coming soon!!

with the cats I do a rather unsafe 'trick' into fooling the car (young and stupid on my part, didn't think through the course of my actions) into not being in gear so I can rev it up to about 6500rpm while not moving.

With not having many miles on the 3.5 yet I chose not to do the same trick.
