Diddled with the shop M3 swap car - rear end.

Thennnn

Prepped the vovo for the k24 and suspension install.

tossed the greens in as part of the prep.

Oddly enough, my fucking pass side control arm is bad, the bushings not the ball joint. <_<

3 different shops and 5 times on the alignment rack and no one could tell me that was the issue for my car pulling under accl and deccl. <_< <_< <_<

On the 855R:

New rad, rad hoses, thermostat, coolant temp sensor.

Cost over $400 from Tasca, but should last a long time!

On thing I noticed though, the tabs for the mounting brackets on the sides of the intercooler broke off from old age/rust. So the intercooler is able to move up and down a little bit in between the a/c condensor and radiator. Is this a problem? I don't see a way of fixing it outside of replacing the intercooler, which I really don't want to do.

Nope, most cars I've seen have had the IC brackets fall off. The endtanks do a pretty good job of sandwiching everything together.

time for a drop in!

Going that route on the T5R. Getting rid of the FMIC. Already bought an iPd rip kit :)

122S: adjusted the valves, runs quietly now.

V70R: pulled the bracket of death, remounted a heatshield above the driveshaft and finally replaced that pesky front O2 sensor. Will probably pull some things off the undercarriage soon and will POR15 and paint the undercarriage once and for all. The PO lacked good judgement in his NY winters.... :glare:
