Thanks Jon, Here's a little update.

This morning I mounted TOYO TR1s to my back wheels. I personally don't like the idea of mix matching tires (front and back) but since my buddy had these in his shop, they will be used. He had them on his car for about 1 or 2 months. They're brand spanking new. 215/40/16. Very minimal stretch, exactly what I wanted.

For progress today, not much. Just took apart my AUDI A4 brake booster and gave it a quick little respray. Put the MC back on but will wait for the Reservoir because I've read that the brake booster works but the RES sort of kisses the Throttle Control Valve. Time will tell once I drop the motor in.





Haven't been doing much on the car it self as I'm waiting for my friend to finish his car so we can head down to H20.
I got my diff cover sandblasted and powdercoated. Isn't the best job but for 20$ HEY I can't complain.

A rainy day here in Montreal, so having the day off work, I went to the shop and got to work on painting my M42 Rad. Nothing else to do. The reservoir was removed and a new one was ordered. Should have it tomorrow. The other day, I found a mint IS trunk lip for 50$. Contacted the seller and met him the same night.

I pressed in the AKG Diff Bushing into the cover that I had sandblasted and powder coated. I coated around the bushing with grease. I used the 1 TON press that we have at the shop. Fit like a glove.

This might be the last update I post before leaving for H20. New wishbone brackets. Turns out that worldpac sent me two of the same (passenger side).
It was sent back and will receive the correct one latest Monday. Dropped some grease on the AKG CAB and again used the press. Went in nice and easy.
Red and black make a great combo. I hope to be dropping my engine soon.

Well today was the day that I've been waiting for. I finally got the M42 out. It went smooth. I started by removing the ECU by passing it through the firewall, then unplugged the power wires. Drained both the oil and power steering fluid. Completely dropped down the driveshaft. Next thing to do is remove all the brake fluid including the lines and ABS pump. After that, degrease and high pressure wash the engine bay.
