Tomorrow I have to do a lot of cleaning, running wires better, and fixing the HVAC lines I forgot to run.

And now for the video. I have a big vacuum leak under the supercharger at the intercooler core, just like I had last year. Going to be another pain to fix..

Sounds like a mean machine. Good luck working out the kinks, it'* going to be fun watching it run at the track.

The vacuum leak is between the LIM and the intercooler plate. Took a lot of RTV to seal it up last time.

yes, the strut bar is still leaning on the bench. It will go in after I'm done dealing with the details.
