hey ryan, you know those studs in the shifter base... what about using a bolt and a threaded standoff? mcmaster sells stainless steel round standoffs, just need to threadlock the onto the bolt thats already in the base (might have to change the size of the bolt for the next batch). http://www.mcmaster.com/#91125a451/=nrnoi

bleh, got the dash all out, what a shitty. Those instructions on SOGI need to be edited, had me looking for bolts, nuts and screws that dont exist and unhooking things that weren't necessary stupid heater cores.

the only good news is the heater core has a good sized hole, better than doing all that for some pussy little dribble. happy I didn't damage the pipes too badly, only the passenger side is a little out of round. The absolute worst part of this was getting the dead pedal screws off, fuck you Toyota and your phillips head screws, probably 45 minutes worth of beating them with my hammer driver until I smartened up and drilled the heads off.

$$$$$$$$ says $1650 for a 7MGTE longblock shipped, I dont know if thats good or bad but considering id be doing a full rebuild on it before it went in it would be more expensive than an 18 year old, $16/hr can afford.

I'm looking at over $3000 in parts to rebuild my VG30 + labour to assemble the pistons/valves into the short-block. Mind you that isn't a stock rebuild, but still....

PS - I'm 20, a full time university student, and make less then $16 an hour :


So don't complain, you could be in my boat, haha.
