so far, so good.

replacement subframe/carrier assembly is out and old bushings (what a pain in the butt) are out. we ended up burning out the rubber and knocking the sleeves out with a drift punch and 5lb sledge. it sucked, but, everything else looks great. we would have reinstalled into the white car but my wife told me we were going to have dinner with my brother at 5 so we stopped early enough to be ready. than, at 430, they called and said they had to cancel.

so, we are at the reinstall point.

no work on the gold car because I am waiting till we get the red car engine installed

I say go for it. At this rate I'll own the last M20 powered e30 on the planet and I can use it as my retirement fund.

ok, replacement subframe is bolted in and all that's left is to bleed the brakes and put the wheels back on.

well, she rans straight and true with no weird noises or anything. she brakes straight and doesn't pull, either. now my son is just deciding if he wants the stock quiet exhaust or if he wants to build something custom because since we took the subframe from the parts car, we had to drop its exhaust so we have a whole set up we can add any muffler into and swap it back and forth with the stock one, anytime we wish. all the proper bends and already lined up
