She hasn't hit the street yet. I know........ The turbo is mounted, oil and coolant lines are run, exhaust is tomorrow, and intercooler piping is almost done. I work on it when I have the time. Between a 60+ hour workweek, three kids, and two houses my time is more than fleeting. I had an issue with the return line being blocked by the windage tray, but I took care of that a few hours ago. The exhaust is being welded as we speak, and the intercooler piping is done save for some tweaking. It is a matter of time before she's eating pavement.

60+ hours now. I get paid for 48, but in the winter when things are slow I still get a 48 hour paycheck. It's a sweet deal, trust me. If I don't use the "banked" hours I get a nice fat paycheck to cover the difference.

I fired her up today and the turbo sounds sweet! Not as hearty as my Thunderbird, but still sweet, especially from under the hood of my sedan. Sleeper fo sho! It gives me wood to see the long-idle boost gauge jump to life.
