The beginning:

The story begins a few months ago when Ty announced he had just bought another white gen 2 RX for $500 with a blown headgasket and didnt know whether to part it or fix it for his missus to use a shitter daily. I suggested he part it as I wanted the climate control and all those neat bits that are a pain to assemble without a complete car to pinch from. Someone then had the smart idea of swapping cars. We/Id fix up the RX and swap in all my good bits, return my current car to stock and he gets my car. Genius. It later turned into swapping the current owners RSK engine out and getting the car for payment. So after 2 months of pestering Ty to pick it up, it has finally happened today! Ive joined the white crowd!

She needs a lot of work but im looking forward to basically stripping it down and rebuilding it. Engine is smooth and strong and is noticeably better than my asthmatic 2.2; even with nearly 300k kms

Needs some body work but will probably just get them from a wrecker.

Also needs a very good wash inside and out. Has been sitting for a while so the outside is covered in paperbark leaves. Previous owner was a smoker so entire interior will be getting stripped and swapped for my interior. Dat cream tho

Will be dying the headliner and carpets black most likely to freshen it up.
What this is all for
6AT6FRr.jpg
Jumped at the oppertunity to get the gaskets from the US when Ty ordered them for his Foz. 226 delivered for every engine gasket. Bueno

Heres the to-do list so far:

  • Replace Head gaskets
  • Paint valve covers (black wrinkle)
  • Paint intake manifold (red for extra kw)
  • Rego/Roadworthy
  • Strip and replace interior
  • swap my good bits in
  • Paint limited bar white (DIY)
  • Get bootlid welded up and painted
  • ?????
  • Skids

I plan on documenting the fuark out of the engine work cos I know you :fork: ers love that stuff  :drinks:

new headbolts if you are going to do the headgaskets! they are the fault with the DOHC 2.5 (head bolts stretch). Unless you are doing it on the cheap

Special edition!!! Mad! I loved my tan leather. Was a one owner, 130k km, non-smokers car when I bought it though which may make a difference!

A lot of work for a climate control unit but looks like a great base for a project. Looking forward to the updates.

Yeah if it didnt smell like a pub and wasnt worn as heck Id consider keeping it. Haha its not just the climate control. Has airbags and abs and all that other stuff that is worth having. Plus my current car needs a lot of money spent on paint and stuff so its easier and more fun to rebuild this one. Plus RX is easier for tarbo according to Ty ¯\(°_o)/¯

Good stuff!!

Look forward to seeing the progress.

Shit it finally happened

Before I die, I hope to be able to write this into you build thread. I won't hold my breath though

As soon as she hands it to you, slowly take of your pants, then, while staring her straight in the eyes rub it against the tip of you penis, while continuing your painfully intense gaze whisper to her;
 
"My eye is watering, this might be a bit hot"

I should just convert to single, right?

MY02 Blue B4, aka 'The Project' - v8 Spec C engine package and assorted other 'goodies' - Sold, then bought back for parts. In process of stripping.

MY97 Silver RX, aka 'The Track Toy' - All good bits from B4 will find their way into this...
MY03 Holden Commodore - Daily. Because good on fuel.

This. Will be painting it something like the diamond grey colour or if i can find some good carbon wrap might consider that.

Got stuck into it instead of studying this afternoon. First time doing this sort of work and I think it went well. So far ive removed the radiator and fans etc, airbox, battery, alternator and the intake manifold.

wJJsHQOl.jpg

The last one was due to not having a swivel bit to get at these botls to remove the AC compressor without degassing it.

The coolant came out this colour so a new/2nd hand radiator might be on the cards too

Also unbolted but havent removed for fear of electrical gremlins an alarm. Was a ghetto as fork install

Only broke 1 hose under the intake manifold and slightly mangled a plug in the same location. I think the hose is for the throttle body so is useless here in AUS? NFI what the plug is for as i cant find it on any FSMs
