    Looks good! Did you get the wiring harness/ECU and T-50 with the 4AGE.

    Indeed, includes the original ECU with the appropriate sensors and wiring harness. The guy threw in the stock oil cooler too which is a plus. It has a P/S pump which will also work with my setup. For the transmission I haven't decided on a T-50 or W-Series since the car will be seeing daily use. I have access to a T-50 for only 200 bucks and it functions well, I'm simply unsure of what will be more cost effective in the long run. Since the car was Zenki all the wiring is guaranteed to match up so I didn't bother with the underdash harness. I also have a zenki and kouki GTS cluster lying around my parts bin.

    For $200 you can't really go wrong since it'll be a straight, no hassles, bolt in.
    If you plan on drifting/ tracking the car at some point, the w series would be a good improvement for reliability but if you're mainly planning on daily'ing, the 16v won't give the t50 much trouble.

    As a side note, depending on the direction you go with your w series setup, you may find you'll need the bell housing from a t50 anyways, so it'd be handy having those ready to go.

    If you want to put the Gts engine in with no fus then get the under dash harness. The gts and sr5 are different. The rear harness is virtually the same but has the fuel pump wiring

    Ran back down to the west side of the city last night to recover the wiring harness. That hatch was GUTTED and it's either going to the crusher, sadly the owner is moving and can't take it with him, or if someone can grab it in the next couple hours it might be a good shell to save. I recovered the under-dash wiring, and the rear wiring as well. I had to do it rather hastily though since it got dark fast and it's not the area to be in at that time of night, I was approached by a few suspicious characters to say the least. I also saved the passenger side door card, the shift boot, and the antenna. The owner was cool and told me to simply grab what I needed before it was gone. In the case of the fuel hardlines, I don't mind bending my own, it's not a difficult task as I've done brake hardlines before as well. To my knowledge, some people are able to utilize the SR5's gas tank by simply dropping in the fuel pump bracket where the fuel pickup unit goes instead. This won't be too different since the neither the Zenki SR5 or GTS has baffling in the fuel tank. I've just acquired some new parts in the mail as well, I have my driver's side door handle and my clock bezel. I'm considering buying silvertop itbs, however I'd like to know if I need to buy a new adapter or if I can port this intake manifold for the Bigport 16V. Appreciate the help guys.

    Hardlines you can make a 8mm fuel line. For the pump and bracket there are a few options. You can use a inline one

    Wondering if anyone knows why my hazard lights may not function. My turn signals and brake lights work fine.
