Honestly I get the Tom Sawyer reference but it isn't like that at all. I don't want others to do my work. As a matter of fact, I doubt more than just a few people will be touching the car at any one time and I will ALWAYS be at least one of those people. Believe me, you have no idea how short the list is of people who, when they put a wrench to my car, don't give me a massive panic attack. It's nothing personal, it just is the way it is.
What I have planned is two "zones" of the build basically. The Driver's side zone and the Passenger's side zone. The only other area of the build would be under the car but that's some pretty simple stuff...unbolting exhaust, draining the oil and then draining the coolant.
The driver's side tasks are fairly straightforward. Remove old intake, swap out injectors and MAP, splice into brake vacuum line for bypass valve actuator, begin the routing of the catch can lines, and installing cold pipe.
The passenger side tasks are more complex. Removal of NA manifold and cat, installation of water and oil lines for turbo, installation of turbo, manifold and turbo cat, routing of catch can lines, routing of bypass valve vac line, installation of hot pipe, boost controller routing and mounting, and fabrication/installation of intake.
I figure I'll be on the passenger side most of the time but will definitely supervise the injector installation. Important not to rip the O-rings on that one.
So, for this build I had the following folks coming:
You guys still in? Also I know jgasser was out due to a scheduling conflict but hopefully he's able to attend too. If you guys can confirm here or give me a PM to confirm I'd appreciate it.
This is worse than Christmas as a kid. Excited to have it be just a few days away.
