I bought a 2003 Nissan 350Z for $1,500 that should've found a new home in a salvage yard. Now I've decided to keep it and build a drift car to learn in. It's taken days longer than any engine swap should've and required driving all over the city multiple times a day to pick up tools and parts, but it all comes together today. The clutch install took an entire day of hard fought battles, but it's together and we're going to get the engine in.
Shorter Serpentine Belt (Like The 2006+ 350z):

@WatchJRGo bc it's essentially a steel bolt in a soft aluminum head which can lead to helicoil solutions. Thank you for asking me the question, Sir. You have all these guys watching your AM-posts channel and you're showing them the wrong way, John Ross....

nitemare on elm st - you are committed and have all the tools - then you end up getting more tools are you go along once you realize you don't have all the tools - fixing cars entails a lot of bs for sure but the more you do it the better you get at it like anything else #flat rate shop

Please do a garage clean video!!! Buy a few metal shelving racks, and a few shelves for the wall, and organize the whole place. I love watching all of your videos, but that garage needs more work than the Rolls. It is not fun, and not many folks want to start a project that big, but sometimes you have to clean your room. I bet you will feel much better when you complete it.

To get a pilot bushing out the old school way you just fill the hole with grease, find a socket that fits in the hole perfectly put an extension on it and hammer the extension until it shoots out of there it’s hairy but it works done it many times

We all have confidence that you’ll finish the build and you’ll be drifting this weekend. You may need to call Taylor Ray for some suspension parts and advice, you’ll also see him first hand at the PPV event in November, take the drift car to the Freedom Factory 🏭 when you go there.
