Recovery bottle will get cleaned when I flush my coolant and change the oil again. At about 100 miles.

This should be fun. Just have to figure out where to put the Gtech now.

Gauges will take some work. Car will run first.

I have to repair cracks in the fiberglass on the pillar pod, and glass the GP HUD pod to match the profile of the Bonneville dash.

If you do a search there is a topic about the extra idler.

how ever you should only need to up the size of your 1 idler to a 3.5" to combat belt slipage.
Bill only needed to add the extra idler because of how extreme he was able to go down to (2.0")

EDIT: I see your sig claims a 2.0 in that case, i encrage you to do a search

I can't use a 3.5 idler, due to the large size of my 10% underdrive WP pulley.

Trofeo shouldn't be running a 2.0" pulley in the first place, considering his other issues. Regardless, the topic is posted. I'm not going into details about an old topic in this one. Nor does that old topic go into enough detail to copy it. It'* custom. Make a bracket, bolt it on, and figure out your distances. My bracket is custom for my belt path, which is different than yours.

4 gauges are:

Wideband O2 (with PC logging)
Voltmeter (replacing my old one)
Trans temp (replacing my old one) with memory
Boost/Vac with memory.

I may never know for sure what boost I was running last year with the 2.0" pulley, as I intend to run (by design) no smaller than the 2.2" this year, but I'm still off the scale of the factory gauge.
