So... A MY99 VR showed up at a nearby JY. It’s the first time in years of looking that I’ve seen one near me. Managed to get there early and pull some things. (I’ll be listing a few items for sale soon.) The spark plug cover was in better condition than mine, so I'll save that and the timing belt cover. On the Venetian, it started to turn pale blue and crack around the bolt heads due to heat. I know we discussed leaving it off so the coil packs don't cook, but is there any danger to leaving all three pieces off all the time? Will the heat from the engine without the TB cover bake the hoses to the power steering reservoir or anything else? Any real chance of something getting caught in the TB itself? I'm not planning on being the guy with the necktie caught in the shredder? If not, I think I'll leave everything off and save the new ones for Cars and Coffee or similar "show"-type use only. Thoughts?

I already picked most of that.

I didn't think of the brackets. Did both MY99 and MY00 have them?

The turbo and injectors are less appealing based on this...

Part | Price | Core
Turbo Charger Pump / Supercharger | $75.99 | $10.00
Turbo Exhaust Pipe | $14.99 | $5.00
Turbo Intercooler | $49.99 | $10.00
Fuel Injector (each) | $11.99 | $1.00
Fuel Injector Rail (bare) | $15.99 | $2.00

99 R have 302s. Should be able to visually identity. That’s all a pretty standard price for a junkyard turbo, worth pulling if you’re ambitious....drop the front subframe bolts and the access will get very nice in a hurry.

LOL, I appreciate the checklist and the encouragement, but I'll probably won't go back at this point. Gotta leave something for everyone else.

So, I'm thinking about pulling my dash to swap in the one from the JY because mine has a small scratch near the center speaker that annoys me somewhat and the JY one is basically flawless. Plus, I could plug in the JY cluster to check its mileage, check the working order of the amp and Dolby processor, and install my SC-901 with a new harness to replace the aftermarket unit Fred had put in, all in one go.

Other than disconnecting the battery prior to starting, any tips about the SRS system? I'm worried that, if I plug in the JY cluster temporarily to see the mileage without putting the dash back together, then connecting the battery will trigger a fault and the light. Which means pulling apart and reconnecting everything twice. Right? Also, are there any differences with MY99 vs. MY00 dash to be aware of?

I can't remember if you have VIDA, If so, you can use it to reset the SRS light. I don't think there is any difference between model years, but don't quote me on that.

Dash is the same 99+.

If you connect the cluster just leave the airbag plugged in.

Maybe something is wrong with my 901. My aftermarket Kenwood double din with stock speakers in moondust sounds better than the 901 in the VR . And my center speaker does work. Ill be curious to see your opinion after switching back to the 901
