I was finally able to get back to the trans swap. Issue preventing work were mostly work related, I was sent out of the country for an extended period and just got back 2 weeks ago. But before that with all the heavy rain we had this spring my Pit flooded, it has never happened before I had about 3 feet of water at the bottom of it.
Well I finally got the last 2 trans to bellhousing installed and torqued, the new drive shaft installed, the trans crossmember bolted up (it will work for now but will need to be modified this winter) The DDM back bone brace installed. The new shifter and knob installed, and the front Coil Overs back on. The new set of Pilot Sport 4's bolted up, and the trans filled with 3.5 qts of fluid. Made a lot of progress over the last 2 days. Here are a few pictures.
The shift Knob is from a 2006 CTSV, I was going for as stock as possible look and think this works, even if it was spendy, I must be getting old as I can not believe it has taken almost to August to get this far.
Now to hook up the exhaust, sensors and Battery and see how it works!!!!
