Do not worry it is not abandoned.

I switched jobs which has me working 50 hours a week there and i started to resume side work which has literally eaten up every ounce of my time. Not to mention i am working on my house for the wife.

Life has been busy busy busy needless to say.

Overall the car has been sitting but i have done little bits here and there. Decided to switch power steering pumps to an STI Pump and that posed some issues with lines and the way its mounted. I had to remake my idler bracket as well as modify the pump bracket.

Also i decided to swap out AWIC intercoolers to something smaller because the 3.5" inlets was causing clearance issues.

Decided to finish the oil cooler setup using a different core then my original ebay one and decided to get a new radiator as well vs using the stock one.

While it doesnt run the car is on the ground and i had to move it to my house since my dad sold his second building. Come summer time i will resume work on it and finish it up. me not having time to work on it has given me the time to save up more money and finish this car the way I WANT vs skimping out on things i originally wanted for the sake of getting it running.


p.s. if someone has a way to imbed photos please share..... havent found a decent way to do it yet. and thanks to photobucket all the photos are gone.
