      dont have much of a update but I got KW V1 suspension for the car and I changed the rear main seal since it started leaking.



      list of things to do before the 2012:


      install suspension
      change ignition switch
      put back tranny once I receive some parts for it. (est. late - NOV)
      update the firmware in the MS3X.
      install an iac to get the car to idle smoothly.
      a header.

      Great build ! I have a similar setup of transmission and axle is my corrado, I was wondering if you could tell me how much clearance you have between the cup an the axle on the driver side. Mine as got really limited clearance maybe . I have been running it without issues up to now but I'm thinking of getting harder front crossbar bushing and a harder trans mount to prevent the axle from touching the top part of the cup in harsh conditions. I'm currently running WRD engine mounts inserts.

      im using a bfi mounts all around, they aren't an issue now but once i get everything on the road then I can make a better judgement. but they are stiffer then my vf mounts that I have in my daily mk3.
