    Well I'm at 157,maybe 157,900 on it. 6 months of 2019 3 and I'm scratching 10k miles on that thing.

    Christine has had some road time. Monday, took her to work due to a holiday. Reward? Screaming from AC. She's backed in for me to actually do what I need to do.

    So far:
    ❏ Rear endlinks
    ❏ New springs
    ❏ Rear end suspension inspection
    ❏ Exhaust hangers
    ❏ Valve blast
    ❏ Ap gaskets for manifold
    ❏ Intake manifold (load basemap)
    ❏ Damond Pcv plate
    ❏ Air conditioner figured out
    ❏ Figure out fmic piping
    ❏ Washer fluid pump
    ❏ Backup camera install
    ❏ Alignment
    ❏ Work on front end downforce with @Mauro_Penguin
    ❏ I'm sure there's more!

    When you go through that mountain of parts you have, remember to keep any of your OEM TMIC stuff. Dont get rid of that stuff, just in case...

    After a 1 month nap, fired up and took her out for a 20 minute drive. Holy crap I missed her. A/C is quiet and works well. I will be driving her when I get back to work Monday. Since I'm going to be working every other day, I'll have time to do little stuff. Tuesday will be doing foglight replacement, washer fluid pump replacement. I want to have all maintenance done by end of the year. [​IMG]

    OK, guess I'll put the rally armor flaps on. These lasted a long time. Traced from their plastic ones go rubber shelf liner. Lol. [​IMG]

    Flaps on. Of course passenger side needs adjustments, but pollen was owning me. Will do that Tuesday. Replaced lower washer fluid pump, did not fix the low pressure out of the new squirters. Saw a 2nd pump above it, so I bet that is the washer fluid pump that is sucky.

    Also installed the JBR dipstick end. Will make a thread. Pretty nice. [​IMG][​IMG]

    True story, some vw jetta came up next to me on the way, and revved. Must have thought I wanted to race. So into 4th I went. Gapplebees. Get to the next light, got thumbs up. I rolled the rear windows down and told him I had 15 bags of mulch,further crushing his ego.

    Tldr; cool story bro.

    Well kids are back in school. Although my back is trash, and I have now messed up my left shoulder, I'm tired of seeing my speed sit. My pnp mani is getting powder coated and 72mm bored out for the cs TV. While this happens, I'll be setting her front end up on jackstands do work on the fog lights and fmic piping. It's blocking my oil filter and I need to clear it to changed the oil. I miss driving this evil car.

    ❏ Remove turbo to ship to CS for inspection
    ❏ Oil change
    ❏ Figure out cold side fmic piping fitment
    ❏ Intake manifold when back from PC and 72mm bore
    ❏ Swap springs
    ❏ Downpipe
    ❏ Install new Rear endlinks
    ❏ Rear end suspension inspection
    ❏ Exhaust hangers
    ❏ Install Ap gaskets for intake manifold
    ❏ Valve blast (when I can)
    ❏ Damond Pcv plate
    ❏ Alignment
    ❏ Washer fluid hoses (fix low pressure)
    ❏ Backup camera install
    ❏ Replace fog light assemblies
    ❏ I'm sure there's more

    Gotta stop hurting yourself, getting old sucks. What's going on with the turbo that's going to CD for inspection? (I probably missed it somewhere)
