    Yep which is why I have waited. I have everything minus push rods, main and rod bearings, and a few gaskets for the engine. I still need a fuel pump which I am going to get the Deatschwerkz D300 probably, well two of them eventually.

    Had it in the shop getting the pinon seal replaced and while there someone thought they would take my WS-6 badge off the back, they must of wanted it to because they scratched the back up all to hell. Lucky for me though the shop manager said they would pay for the repairs.

    Yeah it was pretty frustrating to say the least, but it was the kick i needed to get a black ws6 badge, so its bittersweet.

    She's Alive....finished mounting and pluming catch can, installed fresh from Frost PCM, fixed a minor fuel leak at the pressure gauge, everything looks and sounds right. Now if the rain goes away I might get to drive it...

    Was able to get the car out for a short drive after the intake swap last evening and she ran great. Seemed crisp and pulled nice through midrange.

    bleed the brakes, fill the rear, looked over once more before dropping her. Start her up and let her idle and just as I get ready to pull out the garage....



    it starts raining like a FU nature!!!!





    at least she moved under her own power. Getting her back up the driveway was a major bitch. Still needs more tuning and getting the revs right to be able to move it let alone up an 25* incline while it's raining. Challenge accepted.
