All back together. Still need to hook up the cooling lines for the intercooler.

A little video of the engine. Didn't run it long because no cooling lines on the heat exchanger.

Tomorrow I'm changing the oil, sparks plugs, and filling the intercooler. Then I will clean it up and then run a scan so I can start tuning.

I hope to hit the track this year. I suspect with a good tune I can get deep in to the 13s. My goal is to break in to the 12s. might be out of my reach right now, but it'* still my goal.
