I have been waiting for almost a year now to get my car built. My car was totaled last Dec, and I've been driving my new one since then wishing I had it all complete. The engine is on the stand, the new front end is complete and all I lack is the rear end. I'm waiting for the diff to come back with the new R & P set.

Once that arrives, I hope to do the entire swap during a one week marathon. Hopefully this Feb of March. I really miss the performance and handling the other car had. I still need a few misc. parts likes a couple of hoses and the like, but it's going to be soon.........real soon!

have fun with the marathon work. I did several 3-5 day marathons...its a lot of work. Now that I've done it once before, I could be much more efficient the next time around...which will hopefully never happen.

This has all been waiting on me to get off my *** and paint my car. Well, I got a deal on a paint job, so I'm going to let the pros handle it. That means progress is imminent, just in time for me to have to futz around with cold start.

I have been sitting on my Sport front brake setup since August. I just haven't talked myself into installing it yet. It doesn't help that the wife's car hit 150k miles and it went crazy....

Radiator fan shorted out, wouldn't turn off
COP died, causing cyl#1 misfire
Ignition Harness shorted (random misfire)
Coiter Valve (however you spell it) died, causing cold misfire.
Turbo Inlet Hose tore
Recirc Valve died
Oil Dip Stick Tube broke
Random flashing oil pressure light (unknown, hopefully pulling pan to check for pieces of ^^^^ dip stick tube to see if it's blocking the oil pickup tonight.)

....in the last 2k miles.

And the Secondary Air Pump is fucked....$620 retail.
