-I have the radiator which is mounted (Should have all the plumbing sorted out tomorrow).
-I need to loop the power steering lines until I can get a new rack (Also tomorrow).
-Clean up the wiring and tuck the engine to chassis plenum (Tomorrow or Saturday)

Waiting on my URS 4.2 tie rods to come in from Germany as the 2.2t don't clear the rear coolant crossover pipe.

Then its just a matter of getting the tune right. Already talking to Blake who did the 4.2T setup. Id say the next month or so!

Thanks man, it's pretty much 99% there now! This past weekend was a success and t's always a scary feeling going out for the maiden voyage, but it made it + an additional 100 miles of driving yesterday (too excited to not be driving it)! I've seem to have lost connection with the K-line for the OBDII port (Even though I had it before...) so I need to address that before we have it tuned.

First shakedown video because I can never seem to embed Youtube videos here

Yea she's been great so far. I had to put a 4" Vibrant muffler on it, it was just too insanely loud without it (although a cut out may be in the works for the future)
