Konrad, here's a picture of the housing I have waiting to do a FMIC install. I got it from Ed (FastEddie) on the board after he upgraded to a larger turbo; this is the one he used for the first iterat ...

Beartooth, yeah. It's nice to have a helping hand on this car for sure. Sometimes I wonder why I do it to myself.

As far as bleeding brakes, I have found that a leakdown style setup wo ...

So it's been a long time since I've posted an update. But for good reason, the 924 has been my daily for most of the summer with a few longer trips and early Sunday morning drives with a buddy and his ...

I appreciate the candor, Cedric! I was thinking of going with a roll bar at first, to gauge my commitment to driving this on track as HPDE, and if I intend after that point to get more serious to go w ...

I have started researching cages and will be starting discussions with a couple fabricators in the area this week. TBD on that, as I don't have a ton of room in my budget at the moment, but we will se ...

Spend the time now to do it correctly for the future.

Definitely this is top of mind.

That brake line, though!

Yeah... I don't know where else to locate it. I assure you it was moved out of t ...

Looks like for a roll bar, if I intend to expand it to a full cage, it makes more sense to go with custom fabrication. I am now looking for a fabricator in my area to help with this.

Trying also to ...

Ok, that's good to know.

Being that your car is a race car with a roll cage.. I was warned that possibly C pillars can suffer cracking on pre-81 cars and in general later cars received more interna ...

That's awesome to know! I'm glad to have this idea validated. Even with the cut out it was a pain but at least it's something that is physically possible now without being a contortionist with 2-3 swi ...

A tab on the radiator broke off as I put the u-nut on... I attempted to use JB Weld on it but that failed.. I will get it welded soon. So radiator is on hold temporarily.

Finished up the axles and transmission today. This feels like a huge step as it's been out of the car two years now!

Axles are nice and fresh. I had to get a special pair of retaining ring pliers a ...

Another thought I have is it could possibly be the AAV (idle valve) or WUR (warm up regulator) as both of these have sensiti ...
