I just did my alignment tonight. I need to install my good wheels and tires to see how it handles. Other than the horrendous vibration at idle i really like it. I'm currently running stock boost, actually a tad below stock boost. Good power, i feel at this point it's slightly faster than the L28.

 

During my project i kept flipping back and fourth between "it's going to be worth it" to "why didn't i just rebuild the L28". I still have a few things to do but glad i went with the SR

So its been a while since I have posted on here but I have gotten more done to the car and right now the car is waiting to go out to paint in two weeks. New parts and a lot going in. I sold my first investment property and moved to my new home and working like a mad man so its been super hectic. Some of these pictures are out of order but you guys get the idea
