      Today I: Hit full boost while merging on to the freeway and annihilated my motor mounts, throwing my turbo into the firewall, and rupturing all my hoses. Oh joy.

      I installed the 20mm H&R hubcentric spacers on the rear. Looks great once it settled!

      todays work... rolled the arches a bit, adjusted suspension...

      still need to take it down about 1-2cm I reckon, and I'll probably throw 0.5" wider lips on the rear wheels as theres plenty of space.

      Spent the morning taking a 010 automatic transmission apart. Got one for free which I thought had a bad transmission part to replace the differential/bell housing part on my mom's car. Turned out the free transmission was in even poorer state than my mom's

      How I'd like to just trow in a normal manual transmission and non P/S steering rack... those two things have caused nothing but trouble for me

      Fitted the original leather steering wheel that i got cheap from ebay

      Got a new tie rod for the G60 so I can finaly try and do a aligment myself (nobody local is willing to set me up with 1 let alone 1.5° of camber up front). Good luck to me with that
      Then I finaly took apart the remainder of the two automatic tranny's. It doesn't look good:
      Mom's idler pulley







      the other tranny's idler pulley:





      The only surviving bearing between the two trannys

      Did this yesterday afternoon. I sprung a leak( in the 2 or 3 inch hose that connects waterpump to the metal pipe that runs across the front of motor) , overheated and I can only pray that I did not do any damage.
      Replaced several hoses in the same area. Found where apparently the shop I carried it to last year in march did not tighten bolts down so I just spent $60 to replace missing on AC compressor,alternator and powersteering. Then I find a hose that I figure is a vent breather of some sort that goes from the block ??? to the airbox and is connected to the cold start valve.
      Hopefully one of the vortexers will be able to id it for me so I can order a replacement it.
