your right, i didnt read all that far more reading after my solids test tomorrow. From what i got though, get the ms extra firmware, generic wheel mode, get a trigger wheel etc. then follow the manual from there.

Going to the pull-a-part tomorrow and hope to leave with a b230 of some flavor

New and improved list of things to do on the 242:
All the brakes, ex. the master cylinder, rubber lines, 4 calipers, pads and rotors
Driveshaft bushing and torque rod bushings
2 outer tie rod ends
LF wheel bearing
Front strut mounts
heater blower motor
2 taillights and a headlight, and a turn signal lense
fix floor
B230, megasquirt, descided on msns for a while, may go with the k-jet ignition temporarily for simplicity to get it rolling, eventually going with wasted spark
clutch
needs 4 tires as well, but ive got them, just waiting to do that last
cut the springs
and ive got 1 VERY bent virgo, i have a spare, but unknown if its actually straight or not

But aside from all that everything else looks good

Kyle, I have a line on two 240s outside of Siler City that are being parted for free I believe. One is a 79 an the other is an 80s model, the older one is a straight drive. I should be checking them out within the next few weeks. I dont know if you are interested in anything off em. Apparently they would be running with a little work but the owner, one of my coworkers fathers, wants them gone as NC is reclaiming their property in one of those deals.

Found a clean B230 last month in the pull a part, 130k, no leaks. Got the B21 out yesterday and got all of the lights working outside. Mounted some free 195/60/15s I had tonight, they look alot better than the 205/65/15s that were on it. The car definately needs a windsheild, theres a new one in it, but whoever put it in glued a 84 windsheild in instead of getting new rubber for it. So it leaks. And it still has no brakes. Well, the LF caliper works...but thats it. Going to pressure wash the engine bay tomorrow and prep for the engine swap that should happen monday pending parts, clutch mainly. Pics of aformentioned shens tomorrow.

Awesome work! I like how high it sits in the front now without the engine. Are you not going to pretty the B230 up before dropping it in?

Nothing special, but its progress. Got the rear calipers on, cleaned up the rotors, poly torque rod bushings, a new tie rod end, and new wheel bearing. Clutch is on the way along with engine and tranny mounts. Front calipers should be here tomorrow as well. Hopefully I get the right clutch
Couple pics


Thats all for tonight, hope to have all of the brakes done tomorrow along with the beginnings of the engine swap.

The car is now officially rust free!! Yay! Got the seat pan welded back in and painted black to match the floor, sealed everything up underneath as well. My left buttcheek was crushed up and rusty, and after I beat it back into shape with a 4x4 and a hammer it had a couple holes in it, so I got those welded up as well. The seats and floor vents are back in for good now, feels good to have a rust free 242. Plugged the egr pipes on the head as well, Ill remove them completely when I turbo the car. Glad to have the floor fixed, progress at last.

I took out 3 in the front and 2 in the rear, no a/c. Itll go lower when I get coilovers obviously, but im not running it jacked in the air. I dont want to go lower with stock struts.

Damn Kyle, You're putting many of our project car threads to shame.
Keep up the good work, I'd like to see this one at SE in October.

Thanks guys
Yeah todd it will be running by then im sure hell it may even be turbo by then, it may even run for carlisle, but if it does i prob wont be driving it up. Idk, its not going to be comfortable at all, i need to fix the drivers lumbar support.
I dont have any scheduling conflicts for SE this year, hopefully when it gets closer ill have some cash saved up to go.

Next thing on the list is a megasquirt harness, then it will be well on its way to working, mechanically everything is a-ok, and I already have a megasquirt.
