There's a similar thread @ m.net. I prolly won't make it, as, IF the car is back in one piece, I'll be over @ Ft. Devens.

Yeah guys, I was down, until last week. lol

Usually money is this issue when this type of thing happens to me, but that's not the case this time. I just really wont be able to have it taken care of by next weekend. If this happened 3 weeks ago, I could probably handle it. But I'm swamped with work as it is and if I slack any longer with the guys I'm already working for, they're gonna get pissed.

To tell you the truth, I still don't know what the issue is. I don't know whether or not the motor is still ok, or if its all just caused from the turbo. Either way I plan on replacing the turbo, but I still need to do a compression test. I'll be lucky if I get to that this week.

Its just starting to get nice out, so I'm sure we'll all have plenty of more opportunities to meet up and go for a cruise. It just sucks cause I was really looking forward to entering the show.

That sucks we won't get to see that thing. I got my freeze plug in, mangled my water neck to have a bit more clearance from the fire wall, laid some pipe for the reroute, put a new hole in my catch can, and plugged the old one. I still need to get the 2 holes in the spacer drilled and tapped, all my ic pipes beaded, get the fitting to pull coolant from the block, fab up a few brackets for the ic and radiator, and put all the front body panels on. I think I may be able to pull it off by saturday. Going to work on this **** during my lunch brakes all week along with after work.

Not that many people were going to meet....just me, you, joe, and Chris (Fastcolt). Dave and astroboy are already up that way.....joe isn't going, so its just the 3 of us. We'll have to get in touch with Chris.

My friend at the machine shop finished my spacer, picked up a new tstat and the rest of the hoses, got my iat sensor and barb for the mbcv set up, made the makeshift beader, and got the fitting to pull coolant from the side of the block. Tomorrow I am going to bead all my ic pipes and finish my reroute. Friday I should be getting temporary registration and starting it again.. Fingers crossed it starts

I mounted a new IC... Routed new IC pipes... Mounted a junk sparco seat I got for free...painted my new bumper and installed it and painted my hardtop... Tomorrow I'm installing my 6pt harness...I had a long two weeks but I finished it faster then I thought, pretty siked for Saturday.... Haven't fixed my boost drop off yet but I'll do all the fine tunning and boost once I hop on the dyno again
