    Not Civic related; but, over the past month I've been able to piece together the major components (engine, clutch, trans, installed in car, etc) of my other car. About a week ago, I did the first start up after taking it all apart nearly 2yrs ago. It took a bit to get it to idle as you can see in the video below and I have a few more things to finish up underneath (and figure out why newly serviced transmission is leaking) before I can drive it. But, this was a huge step in the right direction that I thought I would share with those interested.

    OOOOOOH

    The Dodge Stealth came out of the 80s-90s Chrysler-Mitsubishi partnership, right?

    So is this similar to a 3000GT?

    Yes, it is the same car as the 3000GT VR-4 minus the Active Aero system and trim panels. The 3000GT/Stealth (3/S) was a partnership between Chrysler and Mitsubishi from 1991-1996; however, it was not part of the DSM contract. If you call a 3/S a DSM (Eclipse, Talon, Laser, and to some extent, the Galant), you'll piss some folks off (just FYI); DSMs were built in Normal, IL during the same time-frame; however, the 3/S was built in Nagoya, Japan

    Thanks, dude!

    It did idle, just took me a bit to actually get it idling; at the very end, I was able to get out of the car and allow it to idle. I idled the car for about 20-30mins to allow for the bearing break in; I just didn't film much past actually achieving an idle. As for why it struggled to idle, I'm not sure other than it being a fresh engine and had to allow things to even out and heat up. I did find a few minor boost leaks yesterday that I'm working on fixing (awaiting a couple of parts); but, they shouldn't have prevented it from idling. I haven't started it since this video due to the transmission leak to see if it will idle again; but, it's coming. Just have to work my way through the laundry list of things needed to get it derivable. As for the exhaust, that video was taken with it completely connected; it did sound like there was a leak; however, the car has always been very loud and the upgraded cams also add to the noise due to the extra lift and duration. While it was running, I was under it looking for leaks but didn't find anything; but, I do plan to keep looking as I want to be sure.
