I figured it was time to start a thread on my ride. Here is a photo I took today when I was out for a drive.

more or less about the same. It feels like it runs a bit smoother now with the idle adjustment you made so that's good. I'll keep feeling the tach out and see if it gets better or not.

Nice one.
Any time to drop it a bit and set up the new wheels / tires before the next race?

I'd like to go check one out in person.

Had time to see if I could stuff my track day wheels on the car. Front is good to go and with a minor adjustment the back should be good too.
I am running Potenza RE-11 195/50R15 up front and 205/50R15 out back; on Marsh Racing Wheels (15" x 7" light weight Ultra Stars)

WOW Steve. Heard the story from Greg, but missed your thread until today. Looks like the repair above was coming along nicely.  Did you finish her up?  Time for a full respray and paint her red and black?

Making some progress on the full flow plumbing
There is not much room to work with due to the T3 fun shroud





Needed little clearance on the back of the fan shroud



With the shroud in place

Test fit the engine today and identified what adjustments are needed. Looks like I need to remove some sheet metal around the intake and the air cleaners. I also found a few options for where to mount the remote oil filter and bypass, just need to decide which one I like best. Once I have that mounted up I will see if Greg can come over and help make the oil, fuel, and breather lines.

Nice work  thumbs up

Next weekend I'll be at the shop if you want to bring by ends, hose, lengths, and I'll make your hoses.
Bring your work clothes though, we're putting in work on Mike's car(s), Alex's "project", and I'm sure other stuff...

Making some more progress. Finished the remote oil cooler install (minus the electrical) and plumbing to the filter and bypass.







Even had time to fab a rock shield for the filter
