    Update*

    Still poor.

    Engine apparently had low compression in one cylinder so I only got about half of what I wanted. So im only about 1/3 of the way to my EJ207...

    Im going to swap in a 6 spd. later... I know it would make more sense to do it now since I have pretty much everything out but the money isnt there. So Ill have to do it either when it takes a ****, or when I have the funds available. Im hoping to be GTG monetarily with this in 6 months. If thats the case I may buy one and swap it... or just wait till this 5 spd. breaks..

    EJ207 V7 has been shipped and should be here friday according to UPS.

    Also ordered

    Walbro 255 Fuel pump
    Invidia Catless V3 divorced downpipe with extra O2 bung
    Grimspeed 3 port EBCS

    So that all pretty much used up my $500 savings getting the V7 over the V8.. oh well. At least Ill have some cool **** to put on it and wont have to retune it when I ended up getting all that anyways.

    Still need/want an electric oil pressure gauge thought sooo if anyone nearby wants to trade me some powder coating work for one lmk.

    Otherwise Ill use my buddys shops discount... He could have saved me some money on the Walbro ($30) but hes slow... so I paid more to get it by wens.
