Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

Well small update.
New items added.
I got my 12an fitting welded to my moroso pan on friday.

Since I don't have the lock key for my lug nuts I bought new set of Mishimoto locking lug nuts.
-New brake fluid cap
-New clutch fluid reservoir.
-12an ftp oil drain setup.

I also painted the underside of my hood last week so it matches the rest of the car.

I'm also thinking about painting my valve cover and fp intake red also to match. And maybe the compressor cover

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

Well all new:
Gates timing belt kit installed with new oem tensioner.
All new accessory belts
moroso pan installed
Mishimoto lug nuts installed

-note the adapters that the aem digital oil temp come with won't work with the moroso pan. I'll have to order a 1/2 inch to 1/8 adapter.

Also my 12an fittings to finish up the oil drain line still haven't shown up. (Supposed to be here end of last week but are still on back order with extremepsi.com)

I was also very please to see that the Kiggly crank trigger was there as listed when I bought the car. (Should have taken a picture but slipped my mind)
As well as the car has at least poly side motor mounts. Which I wasn't aware of. They are black from dirt but where they were protected by the sides of the motor mount, the red was still nice and clear.

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

Yea I had to run the same 1/2" to 1/8" npt adapter on my last car's moroso pan for the oil temp gauge, got it at a local plumb supply store for a buck or two, cheaper than the aftermarket suppliers wanted. Sounds like it's coming together.

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

Well got started on mounting my oil cooler today.

Got the sandwich plate mounted:
Just need a 27mm socket
And the M20 x 1.5 adapter from Mishimoto torqued to 40/lbs

Anyrate went to clean up that mess of oil lines under there as the sandwich plate has 2 ports you can use instead.

And when I went to tighten the turbo feed line to the oil filter housing I cracked it in half. So now I have to get a new forward facing oil filter hosuing.

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

12an oil drain finally done.
(Months of waiting for fittings only to be to large for the distance between turbo and drain on the pan.

12an standard fittings won't work. Finally had to go with 12an push on fittings and then cut them down to size. And took a "press" at work to finally get the braided line onto them. Was a pain in the ass.

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

Almost finished with the Mishimoto 25 Row universal kit install.

How to run the lines are the only issue left (fingers crossed I haven't tried to put the bumper back on yet though.
Currently the lines running/mounted behind the fmic I ran into an issue where they weren't long enough avoid the i/c piping (I couldn't rotate the fitting enough to clear)
Which was a huge let down as I thought I was all done.

Buy anyways here's the progress so far. If I can't get it to work on this location. I also fabricated brackets to mount the cooler between the FMIC and a/c condensor.

The only thing so far I had to change about the kit is I had to change out the "straight fittings, for a 2nd set of 90 degree fittings", the forward facing oil filter housing makes it so you need them.

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

Update also - father's day I got around to installing the 2001 eclipse black leather seats. As well as the dodge avenger doors (black/grey that I dyed black) amd the black door handles and plastics.
The last parts I need to complete the black interior swap. Will be the dash, a pair of sparco racing Seats, Sparco Steering wheel with quick release, and black seat belts or harnesses.

I'll update the door picture to a better one later. The door is jet black. But the flash ruined the actual color of it in the picture.

I also got a new passenger side airbag to replace the one in the car that has the typical sun warp to it. Just have to install it

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

Update - started the car for the first time since thanksgiving today.

After installing:
Moroso oil pan
Mishimoto 25 Row univeral Oil cooler
Moroso pan
New FFOFH
New 12an drain line
Removed the oil line clutter so it's down to just 2 lines.
Painted the hood
Installed new passenger airbag
And black leather

And after a minute of idle I found these 2 new oil leaks.
1- pan gasket (let it cure for 3 days prior to to putting oil in the car)
2- the big bolt at the top of the filter housing which I never would have expected to leak. (Or it could be a leak from the pan above it. Not sure)
I'll go out Thursday and see if I can see if the leak is frim the bolt or from above and is a 2nd pan gasket leak.

Re: 1997 GSX - DD, RR, and 11's.

Bored at work so I thought I'd do a preview posted vs.installed. (hasn't arrived yet)

I must have leaned on my stock coolant reservoir or just age. But when I started the car last time, I saw the coolant was leaking onto the ground (from sliding it in and out or me pusing to hard on it, as it has a hairline crack where it mounts)

So...
Mishimoto coolant reservoir is ordered.
I also didn't like the hose it comes with so ordered some Braided line for that
And while I was in the braided line mood. I went ahead and bought new Braided lone for my oil catch can, silver to replace the black on black. As I'm going with a silver/black themed engine bay.

I also needed another mounting solution for my oil temp gauge which I already have so I a bought an ortiz center vent dual pod. But there's a 6 week turn around on that. I'm pretty sure I'll be getting a Trans temp gauge to fill the last spot. But that will be when I have tmz build my tranny and do a custom cooling mod as well

Not sure if I posted it but installed my new airbag as the last one was warped from sun. I also installed a new driversidea door handle after the wife got a little to agressive when the doors were locked lol.
