just wondering if this should be part of regular maintenance....or if it's "if it ain't broke don't fix it"

i wouldn't say that it would be a regular maint item that could be on the stage 0 list..... now coolant temp sensors, that's another story :ph34r:

seriously mark, you're being a slacker!

Didn't get as much done this weekend as I would have liked.

Several trips to different stores to get the right nuts, bolts, washers, studs, tools etc.. Finally, I think I have everything.

Cleaned all the shavings from the intake manifold and got all the crap bolted back on it. I got the coolant lines cut to length and the fittings on, oil feed is done. The stock oil return looks like it should line up. I'll just need an extra set of hands to get it on cause it's going to be tight.

So the turbo can finally be mounted for the last time and all the lines connected. Should have that done sometime this week.

I'm waiting on aluminum bends, silicon couplers and t-bolt clamps so I can start mocking up the intercooler piping. *cough Joseph* :P

Some random pics..

I wish I had the room/know-how/car to do a project like this on :( But, I have my daily driver, no tools, and no workable area for a project like that... Looks great Mark, can't wait to someday see it in action.

No joke, I don't have a giant arsenal of tools at my disposal :( I have a screw driver and a socket here and there... :lol:
