The engine project is moving along slowly. But is still making progress. The main thing that remains is getting various parts ordered and ready / installed so that when the time comes to pull the old engine out, the amount of time that the garage stays in ER mode. Also, on the list of things to change will be the heat exchanger in the front and re-routing some hose.
While the engine is out, I’m going to try to paint the engine bay and clean it up a lot. I’d like to find a ported oil filter sandwich plate to mount my temp sensor there instead of right next to where the return line from the turbo enters the oil pan. But I haven’t seen any good options. If anyone has any suggestions, please post a comment.
More stuff to come later and hopefully with pictures.
