|Huge thanks to Tyson for RallyCross WRX, which fit the engine and three adults perfectly while returning much better gas milage than a pickup truck. The rear hatch's opening perfectly accomodates an engine on a hoist.|
|What do you do when the engine hoist isn't available? Use a tractor.|
Thanks to a generous loan from NMS North, and a 2004 WRX station wagon borrowed from another SCR-SCCA member, we braved the wet and cold weather (on loan from Canada) and brought the new engine back on Sunday.
|As always, precision driving and operation by Chuck|
Currently the powerplant is resting at Chuck's shop, where we've done most of the 99's maintenance to date. While the rest of the SCR-SCCA guys head down to Roebling Road Raceway for a weekend of driving on the track, new gaskets, seals and accessories will be arriving in Columbia with a plan to install everything in two weekends.
|Touch-down. Only a few days until we're pumping air, gas, and electricity through this bad boy.|
