Still nothing... as busy as a one armed brick layer in Baghdad.

On the bright side have tracked down all of the parts to finish it off, even got a good MX7 starter motor...that only took 18months+ to find and some factory hubbies ($5 each at the local wreckers 1 at a time over the same period). Also found a guy with NOS oil drain hoses so I grabbed a couple of those.

Motivation is returning so I am going to take the tanks out to get tested, they had over 2 years on them when I bought them. I also have to move the converters (again)....apparently can't get complied where they are so cold side off again too I suppose.

This will happen when I get some time in the next couple of months. (Still away a lot heading OS for 5 weeks on Tuesday).

Actually picking up my back seats from a mates place today...they have only been there since October 07......may also crack out the soldering iron and finish off the interior wiring...if I can be arsed...will prob last until the first glob of solder lands on me whilst I am lying upside down with my head under the dash......

Need to wash it again so I put a motivational quote on the rear window to help get me going.....

I'll probably do it myself to get it drive-able on n/a then apply low boost (15psi).
I have tuned many many gas cars and have the laptop with the software for the ecu.... have some base settings to work from so what can possibly go wrong?? (apart from ring lands, rods, head gasket etc)

After that I will most likely drive it to Melbourne and start winding the boost up (past 15) and fiddling the map for the Alcohol injection, that is unless I can find someone local that will let ME play on their dyno at around the cost of 200litres of gas for a day.

Still sitting in the corner of the shed. Dustier than it was last year. Motivation is getting closer. Maybe after the nationals at Easter.
