    Finally was a too sneak in a produtive day on the car, we got quit a bit done, fuel filter mounted, afpr put on, started rewraping all the wires with new wire loom and getting wiring hooked all back up. New timing gear over installed. Got the b&m oil cooler and all mount up the the evo3 ofh, and a few other random things

    Well shes pretty much done, and ready for the first start. I need my -10 an fittings for my oil line, and get my downpipe fabbed up at a local shop. Here are a few pics that I snapped after getting done working on it today.

    So thinks to my buddy Mike Myles for bringing his ecu with v3 up today to see if it would work, and well it linked up fine, So I shipped my ecu back out yesterday to ecmlink for repairs, and the ol GSX should be back on road getting a base tune by next weekend for the first time in over a year.
