    Convince my wife to let me go...

    Still gotta do a heater core on the green car. (It snows in PA in October!)

    Swap off those NOS wheels and tires for some long-haul shoes.

    Maybe new downpipe with cat delete and gillis valve. (The car ran a 17 sec. quarter.)
    My wife says it's a sickness...what do you think?

    Take her along. Sacrifice a credit card or two.

    Tell her that other SVO widows will be there.

    PB Blaster, Really tiny gear puller from autozone and some love taps from a ball peen hammer got my sprocket out. or you could use the correct tool if you can get it.

    check the parts in, rear end, reclock, port and install of turbo off my list. its not pretty, but it gets the job done.

    now to get the motor back in the car then shoehorn the exhaust in...

    My list just got way longer. Pulled the head Monday, had warning bells going off. Dropped my head off to the machine shop this morning. I had intended to do some porting to the exhaust before the reunion. Had it checked for cracks first. I have lots of them, between the ports and into the coolant passages. This head is toast....

    Lets see all i need is my header back, fab the exhaust for the 3" elbow, re install interior, shift light, and buy some torco.

    That should be all for the SVO, i just finished adding a trans cooler and gauge to the SUV for the tow up to KY.

    round tooth gears

    Well I finally got the new gears on and the round tooth belt. I had to re work the slotted hole in the Cheap horsepower.com tensioner. it was just a little off and would not let the lock bolt get started. but it is done just in time for the headerbolts to come in the mail tomorrow.
    I ordered the front rotors all I need is aa master and brake pads and the brakes will be done.
    I hope I will have enough time for the exahust system
