      Well since the engins is now out, I was able to mock up all the brake lines. I will make the real ones soon. To anyone who is thinking about doing this, try to pick up some single strand wire, it bends great, you can shape it to whatever, and its close to the same diameter as brake lines.

      I have an actual bender but I'll probably hand bend since it's easy.

      Been driving 120 miles about 3 times a week for a while now, working on Strictly Pleasure's Top Secret Project. Messed up my jack getting the car back on the ground, but oh wells.




      And the project, hellamadtyterusted 240.



      And yes, the front bumper is a finger width off the ground, and yes, that curb right next to the car is his driveway entrance.

      WhenYou relocated your module, how did you get the harness up there?

      K lol.

      And all you have to do pull the harness all the way back into the footwell, then put it up through the ecu box. I did not extend it and it fits very nicely

      That's good news. I might relocate mine this year if I finish everything else early enough.

      So this past weekend I decided to take a little trip with my two best friends. Well, actually I needed co-drivers because I'm selfish . Anyways, we made the trip from Chicago to D.C. to Chicago in 25 hours. On the way back I was very sub-23" gtf, I would guess 22.5, and no skid plate lol. Here's some pics:

      Pennsylvania at midnight



      Wicked tunnel, must have been at least a mile long


      My buddies first stick shift


      Pennsylvania Sunrise in mountain-ish area




      The goods




      Found this picture on my camera when I went through the pictures. Check out that side burn [cool]


      And of course, what's a good road trip without a semi half burnt??

      I know those roads very well. That's probably the sommerset tunnel you went through. Did you get off of 76 in Breezewood? That place has like every fat food restaurant ever, and it's got a weird feeling to it.

      In breezewood/ nearby there are 3 abandoned tunnels that used to be part of the turnpike. The one is leased by a race team who tests their NASCAR car there for coast down...

      Anyways hope you enjoyed your trip! I may be coming out to chicago by the end of the summer with my car. My uncle lives in Western Springs, is that close to you at all?

      Pretty sure we got off at breezewood, We got off the turnpike, drove on a regular street for one block, and got onto whatev its called highway.

      Western Springs is very close to me actually, 15-20 minutes away, have you ever been? The town to the west is the richest area in Chicagoland (hinsdale).

      Put them in and took em for a spin tonight. OH. MY. GOD. These combined with my coilovers have made my car an incredible joy to drive. I only have one complaint, and that's that they are not black. But it's not enough to make me pull them out.

      Old Seat Removal, Interior cleaning, and sport seat install took about 1/2 hour.

      Thanks a lot! I love them so far, I think everyone should get a set they really improve the drive.

      Serious note:

      I have a leak At the turbo the oil feed line leaks pretty bad. It's tight and there is no visible damage. Any suggestions?
