      bit of an update;

      took the head off again and installed exhaust valves. the body is off getting work done and hope to be cake ready for assembly in the next few weeks. spent some time fitting new fuel rail and throttle body. i went with the 034 rail and grams 70mm throttle body. i will have another round of pics soon. i will get them uploaded later today.

      Yea that's my least favorite part of the kit. I might be going a different direction with the build any way. Picked up some awd parts. Well see tho. Might have it back from paint this weekend

      Little update with pics. So far it's running great at idle and can't wait to get it on the road and tune it more. Got the dash and gauges worked out for now. Been picking at intercooler pipe work and am some what happy with this so far. Blue tape is going to be welded and all couplers will be black. Probably gonna pickup a different power steering reservoir (leaning torward chase bay). Cheers guys

      Been a busy spring. Got 95% of the thing together and have been working on the tune alot. Got the knock sensors reading some what accurate so i was able to increase the boost pressure and give it ignition timing. Thing moves for sure. Next up is bigger/better brakes. I already have 11" fronts with hawk pads that just can't keep up with my "driving style". Leaning towards the mmp front bbk with 6 piston.
