Hey, Mike. Are there any updates on your engine and the rest of the car?

Not really, just waiting on the shop to do all the internal work on the engine.
I lost my job last week so I'm not gonna do any of the extra stuff, I'll probably stay with same turbo/manifold and wait until I save up some more money I guess. This means no fresh paint either, I even picked out a color already, ohh well.

I'll update when something changes, might be a while though, sucks.

I quit my job yesterday and I'm starting at a new place next monday. I hope to get everything done by the end of the summer. And you'll find another job really, really soon - but either way it kind of sucks, keep your head up and everything will be ok.

Thanks for the encouragement, I'll be starting another job next week if my background check goes through, might be a problem though because of some stupid crap

You'll pass the background check and get that job. Think positive.

I don't have a job until monday. My mother hates me for no reason - really she yells at me that I enter the house thru the the side doors, that I work on my car and not sit and watch TV. I'm graduating tomorrow and I'm not having a graduation party because she is pissed at me that I'm going to a diff university than University of Michigan, she yells at me that I hang out with my friends on the weekends. Sometimes I just have to think everything is going to turn out great.

But I'm done with the complaining and finish your car fast!

The car will be finished no matter what, I have enough money saved up for that. I don't have a daily driver right now so that sucks big time but

It's all good....

I don't really know, they're in the shop right now I'll take a look at them next time I'm there, I only have this one picture of them. What am I supposed to be looking for exactly?

that pully is the only thing that i dislike...i hope you got some OP gears in there, cause those pullies are known to shatter the stock ones...
great job on the rest of the build, i pretty much intend to copy you in a way, lol
