next year, will do a few runs, if stock torque doesnt take it, will have to decide if I stall the torque or go t5 conversion, (which is my preference), but since I like to repeat my self, it is a project. Which I hope to do like most fathers like do, give it to my son when I am done having fun with it!!;):bat::fixed:

A good old buddy of mine came by the other day. He shook his head. He said, oh, you bought another money pit. Quote him. He says, you were doing so well with that manual corrola thing. :p

I winked, got an itch, sorry.

Frame rails this winter and bracing the uni body, just need time and and a place to throw this project together. That means I may have to rent a garage. Mine is no way big enough, and winters are real harsh. So this winter, focus on engine #2. Get all that buttoned up. That I can do in my mini garage.

Ok,that was my update. I will continue to post back on this one. I take my mind off other things.

I forgot how big these projects can get. So I go back to my old days with my 84 gt t top, keep it simple, make a plan, and make it happen. Key word, planning.

I think with the b21 cam, I can still be street legal. Anything over, gotta change rear diff ratio, etc, etc, and not a fun street car. Too aggressive.

I feel I need to say why I am doing this project. #1, my sister.

My gf came up with the name of the car. We are gonna call it the (THE PASKALIZER)

My sister died this march, she was my best friend. And before she died, she said she would like to see me do another project. So I made a promise to mom and dad that I would follow up on that promise, even if she is dead.

Her name was Paskale. My niece on the right.

Paskale will live on this way and we can all have fun.

Dad cant see or drive anymore, but he cant wait to hear it. Anyway, yeah, At least this car will have a cool story, and goes to show, life is hard, but can be fun. ;)

So, what about the PS pulley, do you still need one? Or did one of those two engines have a usable pulley?

Too bad you don't live closer, sheet-metal fab is one of my better skills, and "scraps" of material are nearly free from friends!

If you intend to do any non-stock mods or tuning to this beast, let's talk about the joys of MegaSquirt..
I completely forgot about that. I found on line that if you ac delete, which I am doing, a v6 3.8l pulley will do. 36$ up here, but a junk yard will have tons, now just need to find a ac delete strap/belt, which also seems to be elusive. So I will probably just string it and measure and order fit. Still need smog delete kit as I cant see how I can wrap the strap around the wp pulley enough and risk slippage.
