Bought my engine yesterday, 2nd gen 3sgte rebuilt with low k's, gen 3 ecu and loom, loom has been modified to remove all the useless bits and keep it simple, custom flywheel, gear reduction starter motor, 2s sump and bell housing, supra 5 speed and a custom distributor relocation kit. All that for $3,200. Now to get a tig and mount it

Thanks mate good to hear more people liking it rather than complaining about it being "poo brown", I'm expecting good things from this ke30 when it's done, you'll probably see it when it's done, maybe late next year

Got a ke70 steering rack last week for the car and yesterday the rear end turned up. I changed my mind on the 4 link commodore rear and got a complete independent rear from an ra65 celica. Now I can have a bit of rear stance haha. Thinking about mounting the motor this weekend and get onto seem welding the car over the next month and tackle the rear end. Should be fun

Did some seam welding on the front of the car last weekend but my tig skills aren't real flash so my brother is doing all the bay (all the visible welds). Today I cleaned the motor and gearbox, painted them and bolted them together, will mount the engine tomorrow
