RX engine is a goin in woohoo...

changed the t-belts, tentioner springs, oil pan gasket, turbo gaskets, intake gaskets, thermostat, water pump gasket, etc..
the cam seals and crank seals were in fine shape so i didn't mess with them..
heres my new motor
and heres the lump of crap that came outa the RX.
2 intake manifold bolts snapped off, all the vacuum/rubber lines on it were so brittle they fell off when i touched them, the turbo was shot (had so much bearing play the turbines were hitting the outer casing) and i could go on down the list.. this motor was a big lump thats going to hit the dumpster as soon as i get the gen 3 head off the pass side.. the turbo i'm keeping for a core, just in case...
more pics to come tomorrow.. the engine is acctually already in the car and sorta half ways dressed up.. just need to do a few finishing touches and then fire in the hole!

i had that thing off a year ago and there was no shaft play at all...

not a big deal though, i used the turbo thats got 300k on it from the wagon.. (it doesn't have any play at all) . so i've got it all under control.. i figure at some point when i manage to save the $$ its going to get a legacy turbo and an IC...
