    Pico's 89 LX-i Build

    Well my Friends Coco,George and I started pulling out the engine and trans today from my 3G we got everything disconnected and all the fluids drained, I still have to assemble the newly rebuilt engine and wait for my friend at the transmission shop to finish rebuilding my 5speed, I cant wait for it to be done, finally going from automatic to manual transmission
    Here's some pics of the engine I took from the donor car I have and some of the engine after I got it back from the machine shop. Stock rebuild but the block was bored out to .020






    We're getting hungary right now so I'll post up the pics of what we did when we get back from dinner

    I was going to keep it as a spare but my friends sister in law offered me 250.00 for it because her daughter blew the engine in her 3G so I sold it to her

    I'm glad to see you actually getting your hands dirty! All that hard work pays off! I haven't gotten more sockets yet, hopefully this week. I hate ordering from Hong Kong, but it brings cheaper prices for you and I. Anyways keep posting pictures of your progress.
