Kissing is not going to fix your washer and dryer or your hamstring.

Bo on the other hand can lick your clothes clean and just look at those lucious lips.

......and you could probably get your arms around Bo.

Paul BernardO, it'* LOMBARD street, not LobardO. Turst a bay area native.

Hey, Bo is MUCH cuter then Pdad, and he kisses damn good according to Matt, Matt, Wendy, and John.

Greyhare don't kiss and tell, but I know his true feelings about bo.

Intercooler certified leak-free under pressure a few minutes ago. LIM and SC are ready to go in, front IC radiator is already installed.

We won't turn the key tonight, but will tomorrow for sure EASILY. Pdad did alot of prep work today that really saved some time.

I'll get some pics up a little later.

Front core in. Notice the front core support is completely cut out below the top trans cooler bolt. That bolt is now welded to the bracket as a stud, and the top portion of the core support is bolted to it, and the top 3 points. It'* impossible to get to the lower core support bolt or ECC exterior temp sender with the IC radiator installed. ECC temp sender is now under the front airdam:

Tomorrow:
Fans
Crossover heatshield
FWI
Throttle bracket
Fuel rail
EGR tube
A little more oil
Heater hoses
Coolant bypass fittings
Upper and lower radiator hoses
Coolant
ICM grounds
Extra idler bracket and pulley
Battery
Plugs/Wires

Plumbing and wiring of the rest of the IC components (reservior, flow switch, and all tubing) will follow firing the car and driving it. The new temp sender and gauge for the LIM will arrive on Saturday. The whole thing should be wrapped up with the exception of the LSD by Sunday.

I love it when a dream becomes reality.

Nice colour combination with the valve cover bolt seals front and rear. :P


The only thing that has me worried is the amount of volume that the new intercooler displaces inside the LIM. Flow restriction and volumetric issues.
