    Next weekends lookin good. I’m missing some dumb stuff though LOL

    like where in the hell did I put the coil pack bolts? Certainly not with the coil packs or with the valve cover. That would be tooooo easy


    Spent a little time today dressing the engine. Installing what I can. It’s just easier this way

    OEM steel fittings for my oil cooler. Was just gonna send them as is but a buddy sent me something from Reddit showing great results after soaking in vinegar. Got some “double strength cleaning” vinegar to try. For $6 it’s worth a shot

    Plan is still to install next weekend followed but a quick start up and systems check

    Self explanatory. Took advantage of the 45 degree weather today

    Header bolted up nicely which is great. Motor mounts are in. Intermediate shaft along with its heat shield is in. Just gotta wire it up and plumb it and that’s about it now

    Did some digging into my cars classification for time attack this season. Same class I was in last season just a few more penalty points. Means I need to run a quicker lap to collect points.

    Funny, my buddies bnr s4 Mazdaspeed 6 is in the same class as my car LOL. Really love this series and how the classing works:tearsofjoy::tearsofjoy: very excited for some good times though it’ll be a blast

    It’s got a pretty poor power to weight which is what puts it in my class. If he did the straight “mods” option he’d be like unlimited. Car still needs to be Dyno’d for legitimacy but vdyno shows him at 340whp so based on that he’s in my class
