Another small update. Work is keeping me busy with the Red Flag missions going on so I'm hurting for time to mess with the car.

Latest project was getting ready for the months of darkness coming up. Most of the cars I've seen in the area have large light bars or lamps bolted to the front. I really want the car to stay as stock as possible so I ended up ordering a painless aux wire harness so I can run a 100w bulb without worrying about the stock wiring/components.

Install was pretty straight forward, hardest part was finding an area to mount the everything where it wouldn't be noticed.

I ended up installing the switch in the center console under my cup holder tray. The way I wired it, I can leave the switch on to have day time running lights, and then about 5 seconds of light after removing the keys. When I find some better switches, I'll mount a second in the area to have a hidden fuel pump switch.

As far as playing with the car, there aren't any roads here to have fun with other than straight sections. It's given me the chance to stop dumping money in the car though and start doing some projects to better the house/yard. Thankfully, I share a garage with the neighboring house and another dsm owner is moving in next month. Working on his car should keep me breaking mine so I can fix it.

For switches, I'd recommend Mouser or DigiKey. Both are online retailers. DigiKey has a bit better of a user interface by allowing you to drill down options. There is a bit of choice overload at times though. Another company that I use is Jameco for smaller items.

Very stealthy, I like it!

Still waiting for snow to "drive responsibly", temperatures are dropping fast so hopefully I'll get a chance to use the Blizzaks soon. To keep myself busy, I'm harassing my dad to get his Talon running again; It was swapped to a 2.4L 8 years ago an has been sitting in the garage since then. I've attached a couple photos of how it is sitting now. Ordered V3 for it so he'll hopefully be guilt tripped into working on it.

I don't think he'll be going the dirt route though.

Question. As I am not very versed in the older 4g63's. How were 2.4l swaps done on these engines? Was there an old block they used? I know in the Evo 8/9 you use the 4g64, or 4g69.

Your dad has a nice car though. He should get that thing running!

I don't know much about the 4g64 swap, only that it's a pretty easy to accomplish. I'm curious now so I'll be bugging him for some info. I wasn't a fan of the engine balance with the 2.3l so I'm interested to see how the 2.4l behaves. From what I've read the harmonics are much closer to the stock engine than the 2.3.

And because I like pictures, here is his car on Mount Rainier when it was running mid 12s in the 90s.

Spoke with my dad about the 4g64 and he said the best information was on NABR. You'll have to do some digging around the site; I've been having compatibility issues since the new page design that I'm trying to work out before I can get the search function to work.

I'm still trying to reduce rotational mass on the car so I ended up getting an aluminum driveshaft from The Driveshaft Shop. I'm really impressed with the quality and ease of installation; only issue is the yoke doesn't have a dust shield incorporated so I'll be keeping an eye on that. Thought about swapping the stock yoke on the arm but the new shaft has a slightly larger u-joint.

Did you ask them about the dust cover? Seems strange that they wouldn't incorporate one.

Looked around for answers and didn't see anything about the dust cover. I imagine it's cheaper and since these cars are mainly drag raced people don't make an issue out of it.

Managed to get down to 10 degrees Fahrenheit before snow finally dropped; I'll spend a few days getting used to the car in the snow and then explore for some fun sections of road. Hopefully it holds together and survives -60 here.
