      Him of all people should know, these things take time.

      The majority of the time it takes is finding services that you trust as well as doing what they say they are going to do in the time they say they are going to do it.

      I have zero patience these days for crappy service or lack luster response. It's one thing to be busy, I understand that. But if that's the case, let me know so I can plan accordingly. So I am trying not to rush things or expect someone else to as it never seems to end in my favor.

      Would be cool to be done in time for summer, but it's not looking good.

      Louis don't fall for Dave's bullsh!t. He's been vacationing and doing other stuff while his Corrado sits in pieces in the garage. Its now the latest addition to his collection of cars in pieces.

      The most interesting thing posted here recently is that I had no idea Ferrea was based out of Ft Lauderdale

      So, what is the hold up. Head work?

      In the spirit of constant change...meaning "changing my mind". I added this to the collection today.









      Still going to BV my original head since I have the parts now. I'll decide what to run later.

      I was going to swap the OE shift box today for a Neuspeed box I have had. But with only 30k miles on the original box and cables I decided to swap just what I needed to.

      I thought so too. They came both ways apparently...that is a OBDI head. I needed the OBDII head for the SAI port. I compared both side by side, the porting was identical.

      Remember ABT changed from ABT Tuning to ABT Sportline...that probably had something to do with the discrepancy. The tooling change wasn't worth it at the time.

      Yup
      To modify the tooling for JUST the logo would have been costly.

      I'm pretty sure that you considered it at some point but doesn't hurt to hear your opinion, did you consider the 02J shifter box and tower instead of the 02A setup?

      I can't wait to see the final numbers on that engine

      I am happy enough with the 02a short shift setup that it didn't seem worth it to me. The trans will have 02j drive flanges though because the 02a snap rings SUCK!
