this may take longer than expected. Decided to paint the engine bay while it's empty and clean.

So I kinda got to the stage where I've cracked the s**t and just want it done. Not painting the engine bay. Also, after I spoke to Kristian (PSIPOP on some forums) I'm now going a A2A cooler but E85 fuel.

Also, my forward facing plenum and MSD CDI module turned up. Bought them second hand.

I have been searching for the 4 years I've owned it. As Recaros were optional in SVOs mine didn't have them. But in a miracle some turned up of Facebook last night and I drove 2 hours to get them.

Cleaned up the seats and bolted them in yesterday.

Image

Also bolted in the front Koni struts and SL springs. And redid the oil return hose, and wrapped it in heat reflective tape. now the motor can go back in, once I borrow an engine crane.
