She's not even Two yet! I might have the block in place by the anniversary date the end of July though. Maybe....

Positive note, I have saved 11K miles of wear and consumables with her sitting on stilts for 7 months. Negative side, I have spent a LOT more than that wear and consumables would have cost normally. It will be worth it in the end, but it is killing me inside!

You'll get there. You know what my other project is. An engine rebuild on the 124 would have been so much much cheaper. I have 591 miles on my 124 this year. I don't think I'll break 1000.

Yep, it'll seem like it will never come, then it will be done, then you'll be happy, and then you'll be bored and ready to buy more parts! As is the tradition.

I swear all I need is just a BBFW roll bar, and some Sparcos, and some harnesses, and a rear spoiler, and another set of rims, and a built trans, and and and . . .

I had an Aeroforce Interceptor with a red display that I used in the Dodge Dart I had previously. For about $80 I sent it back to Aeroforce. They upgraded it to the latest firmware to support the 124, and swapped out the red display for white. A new gauge would have cost about $260. I’m happy with the result, and it looks good and is working great.

I had done a boost leak test recently and found that the intercooler outlet had a slight leak. Today I swapped the EC supplied clamp with a Breeze Line 1/2” wide clamp. I really like these clamps, I will probably swap them all out. I need to get my car over to my dad’s to do another leak test to see if I have any other weak spots.

Another note: getting to each intercooler end tank is super easy, 4 screws and 1 locking push pin, no need to lift the car.

I normally dont go for aftermarket wheels kn this car but those look real nice. Lovely subtle wilwoods as well!

I always assumed you had springs/ coilovers with all the other mods you have !
