      reading this in reverse is confusing as hell.. I will have to come back and read it the right way later... hopefully it will make more sense to me then. carry on..

      I agree. I'm looking to get caught up and realizing I've been neglecting vortex in general since the summer

      I hear that, but you know just as well as me how much time we've now got being up in the north east to sort out all of this stuff over the long winter ahead.

      All good points though. Solenoids failing, possibly not needing it, more **** to go wrong.

      Going to be running the OBD2 ABA motronic w/ C2 chip.

      Been thinking about the timing curve bringing the NOS in before the turbo spools too.

      I hear you. So it was machined off and still sold 'new' unbranded. Got any pics?

      Just picked the wheel and pulley up this morning... had to have the center bore of the wheel enlarged to fit onto the pulley. Going to tap 4 of the existing holes in the pulley and secure the wheel to it with button head bolts.


      Nice build where did you pick up that trigger wheel, Thanks

      If I can't work with the garage doors open...I don't work on it. It's not just the cold that makes it tough to work on the car...it's the soul-sucking white covering on everything.

      Canadia project season is over for 5 months .

      I thought all of you Canadians lived in Igloos and ****. You all should be used to this kind of weather.

      The propane ran out. Updates to come.

      I thought everyone worked on their projects up there all winter long so theyd be ready for warm weather driving.

      Only if you've got a warm garage to work in . Usually, the work begins in April, shooting for early May or June when the shows start. If you want to hit the early season shows, you have to work on the car before you put it away, or put it away running.

      Some of us are tougher than others, willing to work in front of a propane heater...but you ever try getting to an exhaust manifold nut while wearing a heavy coat?

      sounds like someone needs a better garage.. a little 220v construction heater heats mine enough to wear a t-shirt .. for me the thing that makes me not want to go out in the winter is the darkness...
