      Thanks , yeah it started as a g60 with alot of issues, the p.o. never got it running right, I tried with little success. Went with the VR swap. Looking to finish this project in the off season this time around, get the interior done and all.

      I dont know if any one has asked yet but what is still needed to finish your interior. I saw it at H20 didnt look like there was really a whole lot needed to be done just kinda of finish some odds and ends?

      Good luck with the new motor build, hoping I don't have to follow you down the same path with my car. Cool to see the progression of your car, I also had no idea it started as a g60.

      ....oohh and Walt, if it makes you feel any better......I had to do a headgasket the week before h2o because my original one was weeping coolant and now my trans has to come out because my rear main seal decided to start leaking oil. Next season will hopefully be full of win.
