    I got the 91s engine pulled, and degreased and power washed the engine bay and trans. Getting the donor motoe out of the 94 thiss weekend, stage one clutch and 9 pound flywheel should be here this weekend. Gonna run castrol edge, purolator boss filter, xerex coolant for asian engines(the gold bottle), spectre pod filter, header off a 95 gt, 2.5 exhaust, high flow cat, flowmaster 3 inch resonator and 50 series muffler. May just delete the cat.
