It's going great! * touches wood *
I've already serviced the supercharger, I still need to replace the waterpump as the motor factors gave me the wrong one when I was doing the service so I left the old one in until I'm doing the pulley.
I've also modded the airbox and installed a K&N conical filter and an upgraded intercooler (eBay special but I have a diverter on the way for it so it will be almost identical to an Airtec thereafter).
I've just ordered a lightweight 17% reduced pulley and cold spark plugs, I should also have a full Miltek exhaust and sports cat manifold fitted in the next few weeks.
No disasters thus far and it's been a blast to own and drive! * touches wood again *
Good to know. That’s confidence boosting, but still haven’t found one that doesn’t give me the jeebies.
You working on the car yourself? How easy is it to work on if space was say..a little less private?
You documenting the build anywhere?
I've done all the jobs myself thus far save for an alternator replacement which I was too busy with work to get done myself but I've been able to schedule all of the other jobs for weekends which has been really enjoyable!
It's really not too bad to work on although I wouldn't fancy it this time of year outdoors as there's a fair bit of disassembly required to put it into "front end service" mode and between having space to store all the parts carefully and some crawly bits to access screws and bolts on the underside it would be a lot more pleasant indoors.
I might actually do a current projects thread for it as it's grown legs enough to make for some interesting enough reading I suppose!
