I've worked strictly on Subaru's for the last several years (cept for the Mazda truck I traded a few years back), so I guess I'm a little spoiled.....and biased. The Mitsu's are not mech friendly, IMHO. What usually takes me less than 1hr to do (engine pull) took me a 1.5 days to do.
I dont care how fast the car is supposed to be, but I do care how long it takes me to do a engine swap:rolleyes:
The engine is at my place as of today and we started putting parts on it, getting it ready for the install. It has to be in by this weekend, for reasons stated below.

86BRATMAN....................What is it this time?:lol:


I've got 2 SVX's to work on after this thing is gone. 2 engine/tranny pulls, with the engine/tranny reinstalled in one. I'm going to be a busy boy for a while, but it may be put on the back burner for a month:-\

Tomorrow I go in for a Eval for a 1 month intensive therapy stint. Its supposed to be 8hrs a day, 40hrs a week for 1 month:eek:
I may have to take a month off just to recoup after that:rolleyes:
It will be close to Winter by then and I know the weather is going to suck:mad:
