misnblu, why not do a NA build vs a swap? You could likely make the same or more power for the same or less $ and hastle. Just a thought.....

Well for the couple of days I had off while changing trucking carriers I got a couple of items in for the build.
First is the 3" shifter extension which I figured I'd try out to see how I like it.
It's a Torque Solution piece and once installed completely changed the feel of the shifter for the better.
It's buttery smooth now and there's no effort to put it in any gear now. So smooth. 馃槏

I also got my Chase Bays coolant overflow tank in and like the smaller size it has over the OEM unit. This will be installed next time I'm home with some time. 馃憤

Finalky got the Canton Racing Accusump 1 qt pre-Oiler in as well and completes all the parts I need to finish up my oiling setup with the cooler, sandwich plate, and Accusump.
This unit is bigger than I thought but still believe I can have it in the engine bay or around the perimeter of the bay. I won't know until I pull the bumper and get things going.

It also looks like I won't be able to install my KDMTUNERS oil pan as the turbo pan has an enlarged sump offset that the n/a doesn't have. 馃様 Sometimes I get over excited on things and later when I dig deeper I realize there is a difference that I overlooked.
I was looking forward to the installation of the pan too.

Spending is on hold again as I need to knock out quite a few things on the car before I progress onto other things.
I still need all my rotors for the brake system and some new rear hubs to complete my brakes and axle swap.

So much to do and so little time. 馃ゴ

I haven't pulled the pan off the Accent to see but both the turbo an n/a use the same screen gasket so who knows.
Once I get under the car next time I'm home I'll make sure of the fit.
pretty simple actually. The n/a pan is pretty much square while the turbo pan has an extension for more oil in the sump.

I won't be discouraged though. 馃憤

Just a little update to the car as it's been awhile.
Nothing major but every little project completion is a step closer to the finished product.
Made my first stainless braided line for the car and it came out pretty good. I found that using a dremmel cutting wheel does a nice job of cutting the braided line for the connections. 馃憤

Next I installed the Chase Bays coolant overflow tank and routed any overflow down to the ground via a 5/16 brake line I bent for better direction and it looks cool as well. 馃槀

Last I finally installed my Holley programmable shift light for the car.
I hardwired the cable into the back of the OBD2 connector so I wouldn't have to run a splitter for the light and obd scanner.
Everything was soldered and taped as I want no issues down the road.

It's amazing how tedious the work is get it right and how much time it takes. 8 hours today doing just these 3 things. 馃ゴ
Back at it tomorrow and really not sure what I'll tackle as of yet. So much to do in so little time. 馃ズ馃槱

Does the Chase Bays coolant overflow tank replace the factory one?
Yes and that was my intention as was to relocate the tank for better access.
I still haven't removed the factory tank yet since I'll need to pull the bumper and see how it removes.
With the Chase Bay tank if it does overheat the coolant is redirected to the ground instead of coming through the cap and all over the engine compartment.
That was the main feature I liked about it and it's well built too. 馃憤

On the VT I couldn鈥檛 believe the coolant overflow was a 90 degree rubber elbow that dumped the coolant all over the lower strut tower and frame rail. In the engine bay. Wtf Hyundai.

Well I came across a good deal for a transmission for my swap. 馃檶
I did a VIN check on it and it's the 6 speed manual from a 2016 VT R-Spec Rally edition and has only 24,000 miles on the tranny. 馃槼馃槣
That's less miles than I have on the car now. 馃槀馃し馃徏鈥嶁檪锔
It looks like new and I'll have it at the house by next Monday.
$600 shipped and I talked him down from $700.
Here's a pic or two.

I'm pretty happy at the moment. 馃槣
I also got my full VT service manual in pdf so I can start looking at the wiring changes needed for the swap and to help with building the motor once it's purchased.
It's been a good day and my wallet is a little skinnier. 馃槈
