      everyone who is able to bring any canned food and drop it off to the car and all canned goods will be donated to a local food pantry for people in the community in need.

      tomorrow If it doesn't rain I will add some coolant, and attempt to start it back up 2nd time since Aug. a recap of what went down since then.

      1. header/megaphone
      2. transmission work
      3. new crank seal that was leaking at startup in aug.
      4. added an iac.

      drove the car last night around the block. super loud, gotta get some small loose ends.



      head light bulbs, screws for the bumper, some exhaust work to connect to the muffler, and a Driver side mk3 seat (for now)


      until then I will try to see if I can register/insure the car. Iam going to Toronto next month so Ive been saving up for that.

      should be a fun summer!


      Thanks to you guys for your questions. keep them coming. Iam really trying to organize something like if you guys come to Wterfest bring some sort of non-perishable goods so I can take back to donate to a local food pantry. I really would like any sort of input about it, iam not 100% how to go about it but thats just one thing I would like to do right now.

      Are you trying to get the food pantry to donate or pay for something for you in return of you getting food for them?

      My best advice would be to talk to an in charge person at the pantry. An office manager could get you in touch with someone if they can't make the call on this themselves. Just be up front with them and what you would like to do. Non-profits, assuming this is one, like to get any help they can get. Just be nice and I think they would like your idea. I work with non-profits in my line of work and the worst they can say is no. I doubt they will say that. I would also be prepared for a type of counter offer to yours as well, just in case. They might not be able to give you exactly what you are asking for but would still like to help.
      On the waterfest side of things talk to the race organizor or a contact for the show to get the word out as much as possible. If there is an announcer for the race get them to talk about your donation. I would bring empty boxes for people to put their donations in. The pantry actually might have these to give you.

      Hope this helps. I wanted to say something because I think it is very nice of you to want to do this.

      I dont want ANYTHING IN RETURN. lets just get this clear right away.
      I feel there is a need in my community/state for the need to help out. Alot of people are going through things, health issues, financial issues, marriage problems etc. I think food is easy and helpful to start off.

      Once the car is tuned and ready for a pass I would like to talk to someone in charge of events at waterfest. Not sure if its too short of notice since waterfest is next month. But there are other events this year as well.

      I agree a 100% too. im in school working my way through paying for my own house my girl my daughter. not every body has the support from family to pay for these things. all motor is the way to go especially on a budget. its not a 1.8 4cyl.. this is a 2.8 dohc. you can make plenty of power from this motor with out forced induction. plus with out having to worry about all maintance issues. i like the build dont worry about the haters my friend.. there not happy with them selves so they gotta hate on others. cheers bro!
