Shoot I hope to have the engine installed umm before Chrismas. Hoping. But I still need the interior harness VERY BADLY!! Factory price is just way to freakin high.  I still have some harness work Id like to do.  I rather be picky on everything and recheck and recheck everything before I put it all in.  The inside has not been touched.  I would say the Interior swap from blue to grey is about 60%.  This engine project I have no idea!!!

OK I lied the VSS is not fixed and the Reverse connection is back.  I needed to get the connectors for the sensors but Napa does not have them, and I called GM and they can't find them. I have the choice of using the connectors from the 2.2 But i really don't want to use them due to i dont want to cut the harness. I plan on selling.  Or I can look for them online. I prolly can find them but its another thing added on the "To do list".

Here is the fuel issue.


This picture is from a 1995 3100 SFi Auto.  Look at the fuel lines. They are about the height of the strut tower.


Now this is the Fuel lines from my project car.


Basically it is even with the top of the tire.  So I bought a tool to disconnect the lines and I want to buy some stainless steal lines but its a pain to get all the fittings.  That will be tonights project.  And I will figure out the VSS Tonight no BUTS.

Parts came in..
Bumper cover came in today.


Also I bought a new engine mount insert from Napa. $51.49


And If I forgot to add My gauge cluster came in like a week ago.


Will update tonight...

Everything looks good in photo's(also like the one on the back wall). Hey, I like the color of your car. If it was me I wouldn't change the paint anywhere. How did you get the bumper to stay on? Do you have new impact cylinders(don't know what else to call them, they mount behind the bumper and hold it on)? I see that they are not on there yet. Looks like you have alot of room to work, if I had that much I would get more done. How about a small heater? Nothing that burns fuel, something is better than nothing at all.

The bumper cover is just sitting on there. I really don't want it on the floor so it gets to stay there.

Tonight I Worked basically on the VSS and Reverse sensor.  I ended up cutting the old plugs off the 2.2 Harness.  Then I looked over the 1996 harness really well. Taped up wires and if I could see it it go taped up.  

Then I went to pull of the vibration damper and well that was/is a SOB.  Well I pulled the nut off this is what I got.


Why is it leaking...

Then I pulled off the fuel lines off the 2.2L and I think I have a way to get it work.  Look at the end of the fuel lines. They have been cut But I think I can buy something to get it work,


I would of got more done, But I started drinkin and that means no work. To scared of messing something up.  Opps to late.

I busted my Crankshaft pos sensor STUPID STUPID STUPID..

Oh and I do have an Alt.


I won't work on it till tuesday...

If you get the fuel likes from one of the newer 3400 cars they line up with where yours are pretty good.  You just have to bend them over 90°.

Where did you get the bumper at? Yea it's good to stop working when you start drinking. One time I was helping my best bud work on his Camaro (brake work and putting ported heads on) and we didn't tighten the lugs and he lost all but two per wheel. That could have been bad if he went on the highway! I'd just get a new damper.

Is the bumper as thick as the OEM stuff? Do they have anything for a 90GT?

Its not like the factory. Its lighter.  Its more of a plastic I guess.  Hard to explain the feel of it. I looked it up and only found the rear bumper cover. All I did is really ebay motors and then beretta. And you get like maybe 200 hits.  I look through daily.
