Default The tear down begins!

Well, I've been working every day since Sep 28 so I haven't been able to really getinto the car like I wanted. This leaves Mavrik to do most of the work (lucky him). Once the month is over, I hope to take a weekend off so we can get majority of the car out and back together again.

So far, Mav reorganized the garage and managed to somehow squeeze all the cars, tools, etc in there. who knew we actually had room in there? The RS motor is sitting ready for pistons and swapped this coming weekend (we hope) while we get the STI prepped and ready for surgery.

First the car is jacked up and the top end removed. Fairly simple, TMIC and turbo out as well as the downpipe. We'll work on getting the injectors and motor out once the RS is completely back up and running. Then the big tear down will ensue!

I guess I've been out of the loop for a while. What exactly are you doing to your car again? I pass by your new store everyday, but I never pass it when it's open. I saw Mav's car there earlier and the lights on, I was about to pull in, but saw the CLOSED sign =\ . Anyways hope to stop by this week =) I need some stickers and Torco.

EDIT: Read your for sale thread, sad to see it go. It's such a hot car. You and GTJilly have the nicest 08's in town. Anyways, I'll try and stop by this week.

Hope probably forgot to switch the sign to open.

Yeah I've got a pretty busy month of car work between the RS and her STi.
