Ahhh finally, we can begin! Don't have a clutch alignment tool but i hear a large socket will do. But maybe not for double clutch. Ya, the kit never came with one :/

Ha! Nice alignment tool. Looks pretty killer. Too bad you gotta cover it all with a tranny.

Take out the diffusers and put LED strips or similar in them.

Before you install those sexy new maple leaf shaped leds, I would paint the inner housing chrome. The reason the red/clear tails are so bright and nice is because the inner housing is chromed. I’m working (very slowly) on a custom set of tails myself. Nice score too. Those tails are pretty hard to come by these days.

LOL, maple leaf.

There was a guy in Tiawan who tinted the inside red. Like the red/clears but a darker red. They looked amazing! When i find the pic i'll post it up.

Well I've been plugging away at this thing still. A lot of work. I did get the tranny to bolt up. It went in to 1/8" and then I used bolts. It properly moves and shifts etc. But I'm stuck on one item....

The manual states the release bearing to clutch fingers clearance is .250" - .170". But...... you can't get that. Anyone knows that the spring tension of the slave cylinder will always make the bearing touch the fingers. The manufacture Tilton showed me instructions for shaving down the B and K series release bearing but there are no such instructions for the H. I emailed them to explain things and we'll see what they say.




Oh....... someone lost the rear engine / trans bracket bolts .... can't put engine in until that happens.

You have been a very busy man I see. I'll be back from time to time to check out your build. Glad to see you still at it.

Thanks DarkCloud! appreciate ya stopping by as always! Hope things are well with you.

Got some updates.....Oh. that pic of the tails I liked..




Now for updates.....

Things were put on hold as I was missing two bolts. So I went into Honda and they were kind enough to get me what I needed out of some guys junk bin. So my goal today was to get the engine in & oh boy did I do good!




And... some more good news. Today was my birthday. So I booked a test drive in this Guy came to my house and off we went!
The Genesis G70







Hmmm LOVE the outside look! LOVE IT!!! But........ for those who read up on the different models there is one turn off for me. They only offer a manual with the 4 clyinder "turbo" engine. ..... I drove the 4clyinder turbo auto today. The performance reminded me of a Kia optimia. The engine felt cheap and light. It felt like a 4 cyl eco boost motor in a car that was too heavy for it. You'd want the twin turbo V6 producing 400WHP-ish. But then you're stuck with AWD Auto. They also stripped the manual of the fun stuff.
It's like they made a premium 400+WHP AWD amazing car with cooled/heated seats, amazing suspension, 17 way speaker system, front facing cameras, etc.! And all was good! But then to make less expensive models they started stripping it down. And 3 models later we get a standard transmission model with one power seat and a ton of engine bay room. (lol.. seriously, I opened the hood and could easily stand between the engine block and radiator support). No 17 speakers system, no electric power passenger anything, no cooled seats, no advanced safety tech, single exhaust, etc. with a tiny turbo.)

Summary: I was wow'd by the look of it and disappointed by the power management / ride drive ability.

So in other words the bottom-tier model is a Hyundai with a fancy interior. So you end up paying $20K for the other stuff. Pass. It's still a Hyundai.

More importantly, I'm loving that green in the engine bay.

Ya, i had a bolts in the side mounts and thought i could just slide that rear bolt in no problem. NOT Even close. The amount of maneuvering I had to do to get the rear lined up was crazy. Take bolts out of side mounts, use engine lift, plus two other jacks, etc. Was a good workout!

If there's one thing I remember about my H22 swap, it's lining up all the mounts. Supposedly the ESP rear bracket simplifies things; we'll see...

Are those water necks custom, by the way? I checked KS, QSD, Rosko, skimming through your thread again, nothing. I'm really wanting to go all out with a nice cooling system when I get around to addressing that stuff, and some AN lines would look great. If you made those yourself, any chance you'd be willing to make more?

The ESP bracket makes it way simpler to get the rear motor mount aligned. The last time I took it off, it took about 10 minutes tops. Getting it back in was around 15 minutes. That is having the bolts torqued down even. It just fits in there so nicely compared to the OEM piece.

Ahh the 10AN coolant fittings. Those are custom made but a shop did the welding. Just order the ends offline, have them welded to the 4 spots required. Order some hose and ends and you're done

Spent another 3-4 hours on the Sally tonight....

- Ran the slave cylinder braided line
- Connected all the electrical connections in the back + injector clips
- Connected the alternator and wires
- Re-installed crank pulley
- Connected boost controller air lines
- Started re-install of turbo

Hoping to finish more tomorrow...

Great progress so far John. Those tail lights! I love em. It almost looks like there is no diffuser and just the back of the housing is painted red. Those will look awesome on your CB.

Thanks man!

Well we are soooo near to start time! I spent about 4-5 hours on the car yesterday and around 10 hours on it today. Put in some serious effort in today and got everything done except for a few items. It's now 2am and I'm exhausted. There's way too much to list here on what was done but the remaining items are things like PS return hose, electrical to alternator, put fluids in......, connect fuse box power wire. ... And then it's start time! Aiming for tomorrow or Sunday.

This is the final product. Pictures don't do this justice. Again the goal here was to clean up the engine bay more and make it look better. But also keeping the turbo components. We are doing things like PS reservoir relocation, turbo electronic boost controller relocation, and tucking lines. One thing I did not account for was how close the AN fittings would be for the upper rad hose as seen in this pic. They are also on un-even levels and angles. This makes it impossible to use a braided hose. I'll use the rubber hose for now until I figure something out. I may have to buy the Earl's 16AN 4 deg swivel part but it's like $100. The suspension and sway bar is still a PITA to install. I still find mistakes that prior mechanics have made and cover up their tracks.
