More Details & Pictures

Tons of new/upgrade parts for a 1983 BRAT, with car attached to them!

I just have too many projects going on and this car is sadly just sitting in my driveway about 90% done, if projects can ever be done.

EJ22 gen 1 swap w/120k mile motor. New water pump/timing belt etc.
Exhaust done
D/R 5spd swap done/w flywheel resurfaced and new clutch and drive line set up
3″ front, 2″ rear lift
New wheels/tires
Fenders trimmed
Legacy front seats
Huge stereo
New front axles
Rear disc brake swap
New rear shocks
Body has rust and issues but overall, its in good shape and has a decent paint job.

To be done/Issues/included parts:
New decal set, not installed but included
Rear seats/headrests/seatbelts included but no mounting frame
Power steering rack from ea82 included but needs to be adapted and installed to ea81, comes with the ej22 power steering pump, will need lines. PS rack rebuild kit included.
Transmission back up lights need to be hooked up.
Engine mount bolts could be improved upon
Radiator fans/engine temp. sensor are a bit questionable as to their operationality.
Oil pressure gauge/sensor is hooked up but I’m not totally confident its working right

Steering wheel shimmies at 40mph or so, possibly alignment, tires out of balance etc, haven’t dug into it yet.
Brakes pull left at higher speeds, either a kink in the line somewhere or needs another brake bleed? caliper rebuild kits included for all calipers. rotors and pads are all newer.

Didn’t pass DEQ, haven’t read the OBD codes or begun to troubleshoot. Likely a sensor is reading wrong or bad and the computer is putting it into ‘limp’ mode which causes a rich running condition. New quality O2 sensor is included, could be that simple.
Tags are expired but have the title.

I think there are a few other minor issues to be addressed, I have a list somewhere at home. Comes with lots of extras but all the major items have been mentioned. Could be driven at slower speeds across town, but would be better to just tow it.
