Detailed donor parts list

I've started a Google document with a detailed list of pieces needed from the donor. This list includes extra info that I thought would be helpful during donor stripping.

Because this is a Google document, I can update it at any time. If you see anything wrong or have any questions, let me know so that I can correct the document. I will try to make notes here of any edits I've made so that you will know if anything has changed.

Revision Notes:
1/1/2016 - Created original document: "Detailed Donor Parts List"
1/3/2016 - Added to the dash removal instructions (2 bolts under windshield wipers)
1/25/2016 - DanPerryy added info about prepping the donor for disassembly and described the various wiring harnesses

Thanks Adam, this is much appreciated and will go a long way in getting ready to take delivery of the frame.

Is there a list of parts out of the donors that typically have a bunch of wear that one might want to consider replacing prior to re-using them in the Goblin? I'm going to plan on putting a new clutch in, But would be nice to see what kind of part wear you are all seeing while taking the donor apart.

Thanks!

A couple things to do if your donor still runs:
Bring the vehicle to the self-serve car wash and clean the engine.
Have the A/C system drained. I didn't and ended up with neon green all over the garage floor.

Or even if it's on a trailer, do the wash on the way home, then have the A/C drained somewhere. Done!

New here, picked up a 08 sport. No keys had one cut but the anti theft is giving me grief. Tried the three 10 minute 10 second reprogramming I’ve heard of but my theft light keeps flashing and the horn sounds. The battery was stone dead when I got it, put a different one in and the horn went off. Any ideas before I bite the bullet and take it to the dealership to do the reprogramming.

I was under the impression that the 10 minute relearn required a Tech 2 and that the other procedure was 30 minutes (3 10 minute cycles) per key.

I think he said he tried that. Three 10 minute programming.
Yes I’ve tried it a few times. I’ve spoken with a friend who has knowledge of this and he’s said the same thing about the Tech 2 scanner. He’s got one and he’s going to help me out.

You mention having a key cut but not if it’s a chip key. The relearn procedure still requires it to be a chip key. If you find someone with HPTuners they can turn the Vats off

Hey thanks, yes it’s a chip key had it cut at the dealership with the vin. I’m not familiar with the tool you mentioned but a friend felt pretty confident that he could get it done with the tech2 he has. If not then I’ll look into what you suggested. I appreciate the feedback. I’ll let you know how it goes.

For those of us who have to pass emissions, it'd be helpful to others to add the evap system to this list. In addition, the videos cut the evap system wires which should be highlighted as a 'Do Not Do!'

That’s more problematic than it might sound. You don’t have the factory gas tank so evap is going to be difficult to adapt. You’re also going to have to come up with some clever exhaust routing to get a CAT in there and post cat o2 bungs

Don't want to derail the thread any further, but, in PA at least, specially-constructed vehicles (ie, the Goblin) are exempt from emissions testing. I would assume similarly in other states, because PA is one of the most hardcore states in terms of laws/requirements.

Are any vehicles excluded from Pennsylvania’s emissions program?

Yes. Vehicles will be excluded from the program if:
• the vehicle is registered as a street rod, classic, collectible, antique or specially constructed vehicle and motorcycles.
Vehicles excluded from the program will not have the “Emissions Inspection Required/Diesel Vehicles Exempt” message in their registration card.
