    Met a friend on Saturday morning to drop off some parts to be powder coated and got this pic from him the next day. I owe him, big time. I’m excited, to say the least.



    Also got the heat shield mounted. One piece of the puzzle at a time, for me.

      Couple things done tonight.

      S2 3B Oil return at oil pan extension


      Combination of 7A and 200 3B breather system


      S2 3B charge hose and TIP piping. Had to make due with another off the shelf product in the bypass piping. Not ideal, but it should work.

        I spent a few hours on Sunday getting the coupe on jack stands and removing the front end so I could get to the crank bolt. This was so I could swap over the water pump and timing belt from the 7A to the 3B, since these parts only had 2k miles on them from when I worked on the replacement 7A.

        Also painted the engine brackets, finished up the coolant lines, and mounted the AC compressor to make sure there were no interference issues with the oil filter adapter. It’s a tight fit, but hopefully no issues. I’ve heard that the AAN oil filter adapter may work better.

        I think I might take a stab at modifying my CQ coolant/heater hard line to add in a connection for the afterrun connection, but not sure yet.

            With the exception of swapping out the oil filter housing for an AAN version, I think I’m just down to running vacuum lines.



            Working on making room in the coupe. Im thinking about removing the engine and transmission together. What’s your preferred method? Is it best to drop it with the subframe and all the suspension? Or other? I do plan to refresh all brake parts and bushings while it’s apart.

              Progress is a little slower than I’d like on the coupe, but I was able to get some of the suspension torn down this afternoon.

              I’d like to find a set of brake dust covers, but won’t hold my breath. I’ll probably just knock down the rust and apply the 3-step POR15 products. Thinking about using that stuff on a decent amount of the suspension and steering parts.
