Not sure I care enough to go through the effort.

A lot of work happened this weekend, but not a whole lot to show for it. That's how it goes sometimes.

I had to redo the -16 AN fitting locations on the radiator, WP housing, and filler neck due to interference with the AC pulley and for line routing. I guess it helps to have all the parts in the car when you are mocking things up

Not pretty but they should work.





Once I got those finalized I made up the radiator lines (didn't grab any pics). Then I was able to finalize the duct mounting.

Only grabbed a pic midway through, but both sides are done now.



And I was also able to mount the oil thermostat. Again no pics.

AGREE!

It might not be weld porn, but when its a DIY and it works... to me that's 100% better than weld porn

Got some small items finished off this weekend. Finalized all the coolant fittings and hardlines on the WP housing and turbo, fixed the -6 AN vacuum bung on the UIM and prepped a bunch of stuff for powder coat. Also got the exhaust figured out and the mid pipe fully tacked and ready to final weld. Just need to cut one more piece for the rear section and it's ready also. At this point effectively all of the fab work is done. Just need to run the AN fuel lines, oil lines, and PS lines and slap everything back together. Then the only thing left is finish pinning the engine harness and make the aux harness and jumper ECU harness.
