      One more thing.. To simply the exhaust system and loss a little weight im thinking about running a passenger side side mount exhaust.. I know it'll be loud and I like loud but I don't want a 3" diameter tip to hit the ground or anything do I was thing of welding up a square tip with the same surface area of exit as a 3" round tip.. I thought about a slash cut 3" tip but think it would be better to go rectangular To have a bit more ground clearance.. Thoughts? I could also go with a twin 2.5" single side exit as well.. I just want to to look halfway decent..

      just need control arms and a manifold... to finish her up.. God she is getting sexier everyday

      -if you look at the side of the intercool you can see a hole that was drilled. Im taking the intercooler in today to have the MAP flange welded here.
      - here is my idea for getting close to the 8.5 or so degrees of caster using a plumbob over the ball joint for my straight side.

      swaybar bushings came in last night and they are on and ready to go as well

      Got the Caster/Camber plates in today.. I have to say I wasnt too impressed with Kmacs included instructions. They definitely could have been a little more informative and detailed. I did get the first one in and sent a few pics to USRT to confirm they were installed correctly before I start on the other side and bolt torque everything down. Ill keep updating as I hear from USRT and get the other one installed and provide pics and probably a DIY for future users.

      Well, I ordered a head tool to remove my head.. I decided to go ahead and upgrade the exhaust valves since they are here and the control arms and manifold are taking awhile.. I one of the USRT caster camber plates in (getting the urethane lip inplace was a SOB.. So i decided to wait to do the other one so i can get a little weight on there and help pop them through. Otherwise I have done some small projects on it here and there. Getting ready to cut into the harness for the EBC but will post pics of my finds in the Bentley to make sure im getting the right wires. I am soldering them and not just splicing so they will be secure.

      Head tool was ordered yesterday and is currently on schedule to be at my door by the end of the day Removed the brake calipers and gave them another spray. (Its pretty, sue me) I also installed the tyrolsport brake stiffening kit. It was VERY easy to install and we will see how well they work. I am going to do a BBK at the same time I get new wheels so I am sure to get the fitment right the first time. This is only a temp solution.

      - got to study for plant physiology test tomorrow and then ill be tearing into the motor to get the head off that afternoon

      Ordered the Dynomax Racing Bullet series muffler, yeah itll be loud.. I also got a 3 position relay module to power the awic water pump, inline fuel pump and EBC (gauges also). Hopefully the parts will start coming in this week (manifold and control arms) and then I can get this thing running.

      Wonderful! Anything you need to help out just let me know!

      -relay module and exhaust will be in today so I wil get a bunch of wiring done. Won't be able to tap to ignition wire just yet though.. Engine shop has the Bentley to replace head for torque specs and I would rather double check and get it right the first time. I can definitely get a lot of petty chit done though.

      The TDI (95.5mm) crank came in today!! I have the oversized main bearings as well.. I looked it up on Eagle website to be sure and they use the 20mm wrist pins (0.79in)!!! This means I just need some oversized rod bearings and stroker pistons to build a 2.1L bottom end Itll be awhile before I can afford the pistons, but I will be putting back and possibly start the bottom end build in the winter

      yes, what time? all I need is the ecu to be hooked up to the fuse panel correct? nothing is connected to the engine.. I do have the wiring harness in and can plug the ecu in.

      Yeah. As long as you can turn ignition on, it will work.

      few small problems.. distribution block isnt in my electrical parts bin I found someone selling a used one on here and hope to hear from them soon.. I got called in to work 1430-2300 the next two days as well , also have not gotten a tracking number from FFE called at noon and they were shipping it today.. Called twice since and havent gotten an answer. Everything else is on its way with a tracking number. Props to Issam at INA as well. He completely bent over backwards to help me out and I am very appreciative.

      - got a fuse block from a member soooo much better than $100+ bucks for a new one

      The head will be ready tomorrow. I called FFE again today and he said he thought it shipped yesterday.. guess we will see. They said they would call back but havent.. Anywho, I got the 3 position relay module installed. Got the dual gauge pod (steering wheel) installed along with the boost and wideband gauge wired up. Just waiting on the Supra A-pillar to install the pygrometer and Oil pressure gauges. Also, installed the heat exchanger fan to the awic heat exchanger. Hopefully they shipped the manifold and it will be here this weekend.. Everything else is on the way and Im making as much progress as I can before work..

      Head is back on, motor is in the car, new muffler was put on and fit like a dream.. Gonna make my 90 corner tomorrow for the side exit system. Hopefully my manifold and fuse block show up tomorrow or ill have to wait til monday to start her up.

      lost 2 bolts and broke my ground capacitor.. Ill be headed to the local parts store to replace the bolts and head to Radioshack to grab a new capacitor. Not a big deal but minor inconvenience is all

      Control arms will be here today. The fuse block should be here today or tomorrow and still waiting on the damn manifold and 4.7 microfarad 110v capacitor but Im going to an electrical motor shop today to see if they have one. Just got to get an oil restrictor then I'm good to go!
