I'm waiting for my wife to bring me a vernier caliper from Harbor Freight so I can get going with the cam. In the mean time I finally got around to installing the 75C turbo oil cooler and my oil pressure b230 block adapter. The 10bar sensor will go on once the alt belt is on so I can see how much clearance I have

I thought about that but when asked if the lines work with the 240 turbo cooler and/or lines no one had an answer and I didn't feel like messing with it.

also
I have the turbo engine mount cover plate (waiting to get powder coated)
I always put a rag there regardless.
I pressure wash my engine regularly to get all the crud off.
From what I hear (tb myth?) these engine mounts don't last long no matter what you do.


Got the car running on Tuesday night. It would have been done in the middle of the day but I had to redo the timing belt 3 times. Timing was around ~20 every time. I checked and triple checked every time it was off..... wtf....
Turns out the dizzy was off one tooth (not the aux shaft) from whoever did the Tbelt last time.

Car runs great but I think I have a small vac leak somewhere - The economy gauge is off just a bit (full vac) at idle.


Picture - moved the e-fan temp sensor to lower radiator hose. Now I need to shorten the wires to correct lengths. I will do that after swapping to EZK and removing the Chrysler garbage.

Mid cycle dash I scored with 4 tiny cracks - fixed thanks to Ken
According to Redwood "the nicest mid cycle dash he has seen"
Needs cleaning and will go in in the next few weeks





Also found a dealer installed 240 LSD

The benzez are hydro filled with a pump.....you'd probably need to spec out an air shock that will fit.....maybe something off road quality....then you can adjust the height of your bolbo for road queen or hunting machine.....that would be the shizzz


And I've had motor mounts last me 300k miles......but then again I drive like a gramma.

I finally got around to installing EZK.

write up is here

Hardest part was getting to the knock sensor. I had to remove the intake support and take it off with a 27mm
Second hardest was splicing in all the wiring at both ecus since there's hardly any room. I took my time but the whole job took about 3-4 hours.
I mounted the powerstage in front of the battery on the inner fender

Car started right up on first crank!

out with the old


intake support bracket


Chrysler box gone. I need to move the fan relay to a better location



EZK box next to the ECU, not yet mounted with zip ties

27mm socket with 6 inch extension

With two people it should take no more than 1 1/2 hours.

I actually like doing wiring on most days
However, I was stressed out because I didnt know if the parts I was putting in were any good...

Idle really smoothed out and the throttle response seems to be quicker. I sort of feels like going from carbureted car to a fuel injected (but not as drastic)
- ie getting on and off the throttle the car seems to react faster.

I recommend EZK to anyone with the Chrysler setup
nothing but benefits
- responds to throttle better
- cleaner looking engine bay
- easier to +T
- 70s tech vs 80s tech
- parts are more available

Just finished installing one of the 3rd seat self retracting seatbelts. I had these for over a year now but never installed them because I wanted to get the base powder coated
AND .... the seatbelt latches are different from the manual adjustable ones . Make sure you grab the seat latches if you find these at a JY. I didnt and had to find a set that would both fit with the seat folded and latch. I ended up using S40 rear seat belt latches.

Thanks! I will get in touch.
Your old wagon got crushed about a week ago. Did you suddenly wake up sweating? Update your thread already so everyone can tell you what you are doing wrong
surprised you weren't at Davis
btw those are your old control arms with bushings (now with reinforcement plates)

my original block started knocking really bad this morning
after considering doing a full 16v swap I decided against it for now. I don't have all the parts or a good b230ft block

I'm going to use a what I have
150k b21ft block
ported b230ft head with 90+ mani and 15g turbo and B cam

just ordered a
turbo rebuild kit
earling HG and other gaskets from eeuroparts
