      soo... how is the gruven shift linkage? I was thinking about ordering one up.

      I haven't really finished adjusting it yet, nor have I driven it yet, but man does it reduce side-to-side. on top of the diesel geek short shift kit I have I gotta tell you it might actually take some getting used to - its that tight now.

      From an installation stand point it fits great, and it replaces the crappy plastic part that you can see from the pic was practicably melted into swiss cheese.

      This is probably the first show I've ever went to with out bringing my camera. I only slept 2 hours the night before to get everything driveable, and in all the hustle to make it there forgot the camera.

      I drove the car to work this morning. It's running really strong and pulls really hard all the way to redline - I credit the drop in compression.
      The trans shifts butter smooth, side to side reduction is awesome with the gruven shift linkage shifting to fifth gear is where all the difference is. No more passenger knees is the way.
      The LSD is probbaly my favorite part right now, other than the shear thrill of driving a corrado again for the first time in almost a year.
      No doubt there will be more pics as other people have time to upload them from the weekend, but here's one more pic from the show:

      I think the inch of dust I had on it over the year it was out of commission somehow protected the patina. A good high res pic does do wonders though.

      Today, fixed the a-pillar gauges and inadvertently also fixed an unknown boost leak, test drove the car and ... let me tell you, it moves.


      got drunk, and decided to play with some super glue and install my polished gauge bezle rings:

      probably not, not right now anyway. i'm going to turn it up from 8 to ~15psi and see how I like it. honestly even at 8psi it's plenty fast for me tooling around town.
