I was hoping to make it to FF in StL since I'm less than 2 hours west right off I70...looks like that is a bit optimistic right now.

Finished up the heater core lines and clutch line tonight and started on the throttle cable. Probably do the wireharness thursday and some misc small stuff.

O.O x2 SVT engines?! 340hp AWD focus with evenly distributed weight?! Sounds awesome!

don't get too excited, just relocating the engine to a more reward location...this has been enough of an ordeal, can't imagine doubling the headache
btw, I haven't had enough time to resize images right now as I'm aiming to make it to FF in 31 days
