Yea, it is definitely time for it to be done... I really hope to wrap it up this year.

The good thing, is that I have not given up and work on it weekly, but life has me too busy lately (I am actually ok with that). The Older you get the less time you have to do what you want as opposed to what you "need to do". Wife and kids are priorities as well as work and the house (job in itself). The maintenance alone on 2 Harleys, kids motorcycles, boat and 3 cars is a full time job too. Not to mention the side work I have been doing including continuing to make 02m mounts.

What I have left:

- Rebuild spare G60 charger (already started)
- Finish IC piping (Close)
- Make intake piping and Air Box
- Relocate Batt to Trunk (Likely)
- Finalize A/C lines
- Purchase and mount Oil Cooler in Stock G60 IC duct
- finish remaking the Serp Belt Tensioner (Close)
- Fab work on Header
- MSIII wiring harness
- Misc odds and ends

Then just install it all an [email protected]

yea, might as well make use of it. I am planning on tapping into that duct for the CAI to the Air box which will be relocated to the Driver's side. approx 6"x7" duct opening in the rear, but the oil cooler doesn't have to be that size obviously.

The lathe looks nice all cleaned up now :thumbup:
Thanks, I spent a week or more hand scraping the ways to get this thing in perfect tune and back to spec. Been using it quite a bit, but still need to make one Spur gear and shaft for the apron gearbox and then will be able to start cutting threads and auto facing. I bought the right gear cutter to use on the bridgeport, but just need to find some time...

Thanks. Yes, a bit of progress actually. I'll post when I have time to sort pictures.

I know I have said it before, but I am shooting for this year. Outside of tires, I have purchased just about everything to finish, so this was something that contributed to the the project pace.

I picked up a set of BBS CH's so it seems 5x100 wheels have been sorted out :D I would have preferred an 8" width max, but many have made the 8.5" CHs to work very nicely on the Corrado.

Never got a chance to update photos and updated progress up to end of Jan but will try to soon. From then, zero progress as I am just way to busy these days.

Goal is still to have the new lump in this year.
