Mmk Shane... since you put the engine in before I could get there with a couple growlers of pyramid you have 2 options:
1) pull the engine and wait for me
2) wait until I show you my truck can STILL kick your trucks butt and we'll drink then

either way option 2 will happen... remember... I still have the stock tires!!

Tre and Grant both working on the wiring....tre wrapping up the trans/tcase harness...grant working on the MAF pigtail swap...






The manual trans converted harness all cleaned up and trojan'd up...






now...THIS is what I call 1-man truck pushing up a hill....








I HAZ SUPA CHARGA! I NEDZ NO HUD!


Engine in!! and sitting on the mounts and bolted to the bellhousing!


Here you can see my makeshift spreader bar...




It was nice having a truck to refer to in regards to routing of the vac hoses...



Like I said earlier, there's only a few things left to do. Engine is almost done. I suppose I'll go out and finish everything up here in a few. After that, I'm sorta stuck because of this PATS issue. I'll hit up the dealer in the morning. I MUST have it driving by Fri. Family reunion this wkend on the coast.

Very nice Shane.

Will the engine be faster and will it get better gas mileage?

Better mileage? IDK. It'll have Rogue tunes on it, something I've not had before, and the UDP...so I assume it'll get either the same or better. Powerwise, it should be a substancial increase because of those two things I mentioned, and the engine being prestine, unabused by a teenager for the past 80k(me) and having not ever drank any water. It should flat out haul compared to what it was before. I'm fixing to whoop an orange truck's line of fired ***. LOL!!

She's got one huge advantage......her truck is ALOT lighter and well, she's alot lighter than I am too. She's petite and I'm not a small guy. lol. I could keep up with her before...ke word......before. Now she'll need to keep up with me. You hear that Marie? I challenge you to a duel*





*when my truck is drivable

No problem...I've already posted a few 35" burnout vids on here before. I don't really like to burnout anymore being locked. WAY too much spring twist and wheel hop to handle it. Get me when it's raining......you'll get drift vids.

Ahh heck - jsut got back from chillin with my bro over in Camas - Sitting back at home eating some Taco Bell and drinking down some Private Reserve..

I shoulda given you a call and swung on by, woulda been a good kick back and gnarl some work till stuff happens! -laughs-


Hope you can figure out that PCM issue man.. How long has it been since the engine has fired up? I just got my older black ranger un-seized after it sat for the better part of 2 years.. but of course, it was an older engine and hadnt been started in forever.

She'll still win without even trying...She's got one HUGE factor on her side that her truck has: PONY POWER. That's something my truck only fakes to have...my antenna is off a stang.
