    Car has been running good had a few issues with the coolant lines leaking and coming apart....I'm not sure what direction I want to go yet to try to change and get rid of the Haggered together lines I have but as of right now they are working.

    Threw some hood pins on it for now Cuz the motor sits a little more forward then I would like and doesn't let it shut right. The hood is damaged so I said fuck it and drilled the holes

    I have to look into some front end body adjustments I can't seem to get anything to line up properly everything is crooked but in time I'll get it right.

    Got a little sound bite for u guys nothing crazy just a bump




    Hopefully I won't break it too early this year

    If you it breaks, it means you're doing it right.

    That engine sounds sooo smooth and clean. Keep us updated with more photos (and videos, if you want, although most people don't - but you already posted one, so that's a great start!). Keep up the good work, mate!

    I was actually about to update today.

    Thanks the engine runs really smooth and solid I'm very happy with how this car turned out.

    So I've been wanting to tackle some things so for the past week I have pulled the harness apart and separated and extended the wiring for the coil packs away from the single main lines coming out from the injector area. I flipped the coils and now have the wiring coming around and under the valve cover and tucked the injector wiring under the fuel rail to give it a more cleaner look. I also decided to get rid of the red intake manifold.

    I want to relocate the battery so I can tuck the coolant resivour into the battery tray(may have to get a smaller one) to make it look alittle cleaner.

    Also looking to extend the intake pipe more into the fender/ bumper area with a heat shield.

    I also eliminated some wiring like the rear 02s the engine mount sensors all my AC wiring and re-wrapped most of the harness in high temp insulating tape.

    It doesn't look like much but I'm happy with it and once I clean up the engine bay more it will definitely show. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    As I said in another thread I think, I know next to nothing about cars, but it's just really interesting to see pictures of the interal parts of the car, and I'm really excited to learn :D
    Thanks for the update!

    Cut up the engine cover and shortened it to cover up the back of the motor. Also picked up some tires for the B5 s4 wheels I have they have some bad rash but I think I'm going to plastidip then maybe a gunmetal after I clean them up a bit[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Looks pretty good. I like the cover and semi stock look.
