Luckily the new car already has an OBD1 M50 in it. Not sure what they did to my old wiring harness to convert from M20 to S52. Probably can ignore that now anyway.
everything you need to run the s52 will be contained within the engine wiring harness. All you will need to do is pull the engine out (leave the harness attached to it) and put it into the other car. Once in, you should only need to reconnect 2-3 connectors where it attaches to the body harness (they will all be in the engine bay or behind the glove box) and thats it

When you pull the S52, leave the transmission attached to the engine, ditto for the m50. Your motor mounts and trans mounts will all bolt up the same. After that, its a driveshaft swap and your done

Sweet. Thanks Graeme. I'm more than comfortable with nuts and bolts stuff but me and electrical stuff don't always get along. Glad to hear it's just plugging things in and not having to splice, solder, etc.

Yeah, I didn't go with the 3mm pads the first time around. Definitely doing that this time.

Yeah. I ordered them last thursday. They tried to deliver yesterday, but I wasn't home. Super fast. An extra $150 in brokerage, duty and HST. Still super cheap for new OEM wheels. They came with the centre caps and hubcentric rings too.

Prepping the man cave for work....

I must be going a little stir crazy while I wait for my buddy to tow over my wreck. So, why not take some time to spruce up the man cave....

Not yet. Started with the old one. Need to make some more room in the garage to get both in there.
