With a buddy's help, I finally got the old motor out. If it wasn't because I had to pull the axles out to loosen the bottom two nuts on the bell housing, it would've taken only half an hour. But alas:
Here what a stock 160K clutch looks like. This is just normal driving, without hard launches, or high RPM shifts.
While looking over the vacuum lines, I noticed that the JDM EJ207 does not have this valve, I believe the EVAP checkvalve, as the inlet on the intake has been sealed with a bolt.
Lastly, I broke this vacuum line that goes from the turbo to the BCS, right where the "connector" is. Can I simply replace it with a longer vacuum or do I have to purchase the line with the connector from the dealership?
To be continued.
