    Thanks man! Got a jmf race Intake on the way,a black silicone radiator hose kit and 3g revised lifters.When those get here I’ll paint the valve cover black and do some wire tucking and install the rest of the goodies! Hopefully move the battery to the trunk as well. Stay tuned more to come soon!

    I don't think that turbo blanket blanket goes on the compressor housing. It should go on the center housing.

    Tackled the rusty manifold tonight, did a quick and dirty gasket match port job on it and some black ceramic coating hope it turns out decent! Also in the one picture of the valve train the lifter I’m pointing to with the screwdriver looks different then all the others it a bunch of little ridges on the upper round surface? Could it be a 3g and the others oem or vice versa? I’m not to concerned about it just curious

    Probably a different gen lifter. I don't think it would make a difference.

    Timing belt cover, silicone hose kit, tial 38mm and a boost test leaker finally! Kind of scared to see how many leaks I probly have LOL also a jmf race Intake which is much worse condition then the “just needs a quick polish” I was told but oh well you get what you pay for I’m not gonna complain, I’ll sand it down and re buff it no biggie. Only thing missing now is a s90 TB and I’ll be set!

    Started the tedious refinish on the manifold, decided to go overkill and smooth out most of the seam welds before I started the smoothing/polishing, got a couple holes I’m gonna have to tig weld up but that’s no biggie

But anyhow got some more new parts to add to the already big list of “to do” stuff LOL scored a Edelbrock mustang 70mm for $80 bucks! Needs a good cleaning and I’ll probly spray it black real quick. Also nabbed a old school water meth kit for $55 cause there isn’t any e85 in my county sadly, it’s a SMC enterprise v2 progressive kit I’m pretty sure, the guy or company or whatever has been out of business for quite a few years now and isn’t a whole lot of info on it on here, from what I read most of the kits were alcohol only but seems he might have started to use meth safe pumps towards the end, maybe someone with more info on that could help me out? Either way I’m probly gonna run water meth through it anyhow!
