      well here is some stuff i have been working on.
      got the clutch pedal mounted.



      question: where exactly does the spring for the pedal mount onto? been playing around with it for a bit and i dont exactly know where it goes.
      also started to get some parts off the old engine to be sold.

      and my obligatory crazy face shot.

      so yesterday i decided to start to rip apart the old engine for parts.


      then i wanted to take the cam out.




      what a mess. parts were everywhere.


      next we decided to clean the tranny so it would be easier to work with. it was covered with crud.




      nice and clean



      then i also decided to try and get that ac and radiator out. i couldn't. pops went at it for 30 minutes using every trick in the trade.



      IT WAS ON THERE GOOD.

      then i got thinking about practicallity (for now ) and decided to lift the car just for the build so could actually work with it.
      from this:

      during.(the crazy things we do for love...)


      after:



      obligatory crazy face shot.

      oem. im not going to drop alot of money on the 2.0 right now. all i want to do is get it running. once the 2 liter kicks the bucket im going to save up for a 1.8t but for now im just going to get it going.

      not really. its on the other side of the state. yeah the thought of a 1.8t makes me feel all warm and fuzzy.
      anyway here are some updated pics. (im just using the crane to support the engine. its not ready to be pulled)

      ok so i havent posted any progress in a week or so. so here it goes.
      first we started to get the automatic tranny off my 2.slow:


      finally got that thing pried off. what a pig



      after that we got the 5spd off the old block.

      took awhile but we got it off:
      (i see daylight )




      my friend dave, pops, and i just standing around when we should have been at work... or i should have been.

      now that we had everything apart. i decided to move forward.
      started mounting my sachs clutch kit.


      and heres a shot of me slacking.

      pushed forward again and started to get the 5spd mounted.

      EURICA!

      got it all torqued and prepped for install.
      caught some zzz's after that. the next day i decided that i would actually put it into the red bat. so i did.

      got the drive shafts on and started to connect hoses and electrical harnesses.


      replaced a bad tranny mount after the engine was in...

      garage shot:


      between school and soccer i havent had much time so i put in a little here and there. hope to get it done by next weekend. knock on wood.
