      I hope you don't mind me asking, but where did you acquire your fabrication skills?

      Nice choice on the Miller. Right now I'm running a Lincoln Precision275, and i'm getting pretty tired of it. The shop I work for has 3 Syncrowave350's, and man are then nice machines. Only reason I got lincoln is because of getting it at cost when I went to their welding school. Definitely wanna spring for Miller, so much smoother on AL.

      The original engine was just a mock up for the components. The built unit was waiting to be installed once the car came back from paint. As far as "what's inside", TT268 cams, TT dual valvesprings and titanium retainers with stock polished valves with a 3 angle valve job. If I don't reach my HP goal, I'll be upgrading to the big valve head during the upcoming winter months along with other components.

      Scooter and the guys want me to bring the car whether it's finished or not. I just might do it.

      Yep, it's the 01E trans and stock S4 drivetrain. DSS CV axles and driveshaft will be installed before it goes down for its maiden voyage down the track. It's just a S4 with a lil' heart transplant.

      I will be there, but I hate to say it, the chance the S4 is making it is ZERO. Jon is going on a well needed vacation this week. He needs a break for a week or so. Once he gets back, the last 3 things that need to be completed are the catch can system, the fuel system, and install the stand alone system. The 034 wire harness is plug and play, but the wires need to be shortened so the bay looks clean. Once he gets back, I would say that it should be up and running in one month.

      UPDATE!! The exhaust tip has a different design now. The power steering lines have been mated to the OEM steering rack. Jon made a custom power steering cooler using Sil-Pad to help distribute heat transfer to the entire front crossmember. Lastly, the catch can system is complete.











      His inspiration for this design was seeing a Porsche Ruf Turbo's exhaust system.





      Jon used Aeroquip brazed compatible fittings and brazed them onto the OEM power steering lines which will make servicing the rack and lines much easier to do in the future.










      The crossmember was ground down to make room for the power steering cooler and Sil-Pad placement.














      The catch can system......



















      It's all coming to an end after two years! The next phase will be strictly focus on the fuel system. Following that, the mounting of the stand alone and the wiring. Before all of the wires are cut to length, we will do a complete nut and bolt check, fill the fluids, check for leaks and make sure it starts first and address any issues then.

      I gotta say this. Jon is a beast. He MADE a power steering cooler. He didn't want me to show how he made it, but let me tell you, I couldn't believe it. I've said this time and time again about his work, his work ethic, his determination, his skill, artistic ability and on and on. I stare at the car several times noticed all of the one-off parts he made for my S4. This project would not have been possible with you and I know you're reading this. Thank you!

      This should be the last "To Do" I post.

      1. Catch can - Complete
      2. Mate the S4 steering rack lines to the VR pump (Aeroquip lines/fittings) - Complete
      3. Mount the standalone system
      4. Wire the standalone
      5. Install the fueling system (Aeroquip lines/fittings) - in process
      6. Splitter
      7. Tune for pump and race gas
      8. Reinstall ENTIRE interior - in process
