Get turboed! (I've given up for this year, with family visits starting Friday).

That and finish repairing/painting front bumper cover and TSIs.

And probably some FCM stuff, too.

In no particular order
  • exhaust
    • BEGi downpipe
    • Cat
  • engine management
  • dual feed fuel rail
    • I've got an extra rail to modify, but have been putting it off until I go ems so I can do the injector swap at the same time
  • powder coat the cam cover and whatever else, it's about time to replace the gasket anyway
  • 1.8 brakes, probably do prop valve and lines too
  • clutch, though it's holding up ok for street use for now
  • oem 15" wheels, would love to find an affordable set of the bbs that came on the 95M, but would settle for some M2s
    • Anyone want to swap oem 15s for my aftermarket 16s?
  • RB front bumper
  • naca headlight lid, too bad that guy from m.net isn't making the cf ones like he promised
  • Paint
  • Radiator top plate
  • install speakers
    • headrest speakers, sitting on the workbench
    • door speakers, yet to purchase
    • maybe some 6" or 8" freeair in the package shelf
  • break something so I can replace it
  • pull on a couple more unsuspecting idiots, especially if I can embarass them in front of their gf
  • replace that alternator belt so I don't have to listen to it squeal when I shift with the lights on

MS&S, hopefully if I keep working out of town (2x income) I can get the 99 salvage car gutted, stuffed in my 91, and get buy the fm system.

If I can just get MS in the car I'll be satisfied.
