Not much of an update but...

Kept 'er at the house this winter instead of storing it somewhere else, which means waking up early each morning to warm up my DD while clearing it of snow. Man, I hadn't missed doing that....

But I get to walk past the car each day Patiently waiting to get some love and attention over the winter with a long list of parts. The warmer weather tomorrow and Sunday will afford me to go out and wipe the small amount of dust before putting the cover on.

Well damn, it's been too long since I've updated here....with all the stuff going on in my life, it's hard to remember to do certain things....like update my journal for the massive crowd who are following along(yeah right, more like maybe three people)....

Anyways, it's been pretty cold before this week and I have been pretty busy at my job and outside of that, so I haven't had a whole lot of time to plan things out. I was in the garage recently and sat there thinking how sad certain things are. I need to go get some space heaters and better lighting...

I have had cold feet about starting this on my own, but I need to work up the courage to start tinkering. It's just a bit daunting.

Nah, it shouldn't be daunting. Once you get your feet wet you'll be saying, "Why did I wait so long"?

Or like my saying, "Nothin' to it but to do it"!

Well, all of the orange items on the mods list are pending to go on the car, so I'm thinking of planning around the tuning aspect. So that means doing everything but the suspension aspect, since I'd rather not drive around for a road tune on an ill-adjusted and non-aligned suspension setup. Once the tune is all set to go, then I would finish the suspension.

The things I think I can do first(and on my own) would be the TBE system, probably the manifold/uppipe, and maybe the Killer B parts. The fueling/intake/injectors are something I'm a little apprehensive about. However, I will have to narrow down which spring to use for the EWG. I have a target psi in mind, or basically where I'd like to hit near, but as we all know things don't always work out as planned. I'm thinking 18-18.5psi.

I know, I don't wanna let you down and this is my first project. Old muscle is much simpler to me! But you should drop by for a cold one anyway!

That's a lot of parts waiting to go on! It'll make a huge difference. I ended up not really being a fan of coilovers once I tried them out. Group N motor mounts good. I see rear subframe lockdown bolts, but I don't see the diff bushings or front diff carrier bushings.
