Made progress last week. Finished putting the valve cover back on after putting in the ipd cam, all the accessories and belts back on put the hoses on, started to pour water in and the reservoir was cracked.

Just to check if the throw out bearing needed shimmed, cracked it up to move it back and forth right quick.

Iím on call this weekend, and have been getting hammered with calls, so sometime this week doing a test drive before I upgrade the 13c to a 16t.

My goal is driving and enjoying in a month.

I did get to drive it to the gas station, discovered the crummy/semi skipping wasnít bad gas, did some digging and it was a shot fuel injector.

Welded up the downpipe:

And itís driving great, other than the rest of the punch list:

I took it out last weekend, despite having a few more odds and ends Iím very pleased with how itís turning out. I havenít turned up the boost yet because Iím not trying to blow it up before mountain meet.
