Last night an LSD got reinstalled on the car.
The trans fluid was beautiful it looked like I was pouring from a new bottle.

Power steering line got changed out for a non-leaking model

Today the struts get replaced and an alignment is done. Then I finish the wheels studs on the driver side and tune.

It'* track time..boys and girls.

Car is aligned..
I hear there'* a MIL on P0122, P0521 and P1121, (those may not be 100% accurate) the codes are for TPS internmittent, TPS low voltage and VSS sensor low. I'm thinking the wiring for the VSS or the ground that is right there on the back of the motor. Shouldn't be anything big. I'm off to fix that as soon as Dan calls.

Car will be finished up tonight. On the differential.

Then onto tuning and waterpump. I'll need to push my power steering pump to the back about 1 inch (using the same bracket as the 00+'* to ensure the belt clears the PS pump. That in turn should cause the belt to hit part of the tensioner assembly (where the water jacket comes out..the bolt that holds the outlet to the aluminum.) which will cause me to swap to the newer style and then to a new style alternator.

It'* be a good chance to do the water pump after the tuning is done. It this time a year the water pump isn't going to be nearly the help that tuning tweaks will.
