Hey....check out the iron X that we were talking about above. This takes all those tiny Orange rust dots off the car since you can see them in white.

You can see it on this page http://cquartz.com/pages.php?page_id=89

Touche.... haha touche.... im thinking once it gets all up and running again im gonna get a wrap for my turbo and get an e-tune to make sure everythings running tip top... but i guess i should break in the new shortblock first though. I'm assuming i should wipe any maps i currently have on it for that right and just run a stock map?

I would, but you would probably want to speak to hoff about it.

Any idea how long it might be to get going?

If you plan on running a stock map for break in purposes, you need to go back to stock, no tbe no up pipe ect.... a stock tune does not support those items. You will possibly grenade the motor again....
