      yes. when do you think you can give some impressions? Could days / weeks still before you can really get on it?

      A turbo with 3100 miles on it had bent rotor fins?

      In any case, damn guys you are brave for tearing apart a brand new car.

      I still have a few things that have to be done before it can be driven. Had to stop for the party. Will be driveable tomorrow morning. My car now has 3100 miles. That turbo with bent fins was from my old car with the stage 3 kit. Something like 14,000 miles on that turbo. Pretty hard miles too.

      Halvie I have to break in the clutch so maybe a couple weeks before I actually step into it hard.

      Steel, music to my ears Isn't the word.

      Branman, I will put some miles as soon as I can. Come Monday I will be limited on time as I have to go back to work.

      She is all back together, running and driving... No unwanted dashboard lights, no leaks.. I will try and get some miles on it this week so i can lay into it and give some impressions.. Although i went from a stock car to this so its going to feel like an animal to me..
