Finished my oil cooler setup:
Audi V8 oil cooler
Greddy oil cooler sandwich plate w/built in thermostat
Black -10 AN lines and fittings
BIG thank you to Efrain for all the help.  I will try and get some pics up in the next couple days.  Been busy with work and trying to get the car ready for the upcoming event.
Why do noobs always call their hatch a hatchi but no one ever calls their coupe a couchi?

I finally started tearing the old one down.  Nothing big yet, mainly just interior and exterior stuff.

Put the track car on car dolly's so I can move the eye sore, at least to one side of the driveway.

Then cleaned their room

Late last night I removed my old drivers seat and installed the evo 8 seat. It's infinitely more comfortable.

Took it for a drive out to the Florence exit past Gold Canyon and back to test the ride quality.

It was steady as she went. Looks like i will be taking her to work on Friday!

Both radiator fans are running, so now I'm not worried about overheating. I just need to get that old turbo out now.

Removed my leaking water pump (thanks Aaron for the help). 
Disassembled and cleaned said water pump.
Reassambled with RTV, let cure for 24hrs.
Reinstalled everything and filled with coolant last night. 
So far no leaks, I will drive the car hard this weekend and see what happens.

it's not Toyota :(

but I'm making a test pipe and straight pipe exhaust for my friends MX-5 Miata.






We are guesstimating via arm scale that we shaved over 10lbs.  Sill needs a little love and some hangers, just ran outta time. Less than $130 in material.


I think it sounds pretty good, but I have Proud Pappa syndrome so I could be being biased lol.  Maybe a little raspy in the top end.
