      My friend whose barn it was at is moving......so we had to get it out of winter storage + coronavirus storage just in time for winter.








      Figured we'd fix it while it's home since my cars are basically done for the moment and I have the time to deal with it. We pulled the plug on this car being useful at the end of the 2018 season and over half of its miles since have been moving it to/from storage. Time to make it useful again. The parts pile is already healthy and we'll have big FCP and Mitchell orders going out tonight hopefully. Upgrades will be minimal so I'm optimistic this will go pretty quick. Leaning towards dropping the subframe and doing an engine-out service for most efficient workflow.





      I also picked up a full set of mint carpets for it at the JY last summer since the original carpets are pretty gross. They came from a late 99 so this is after the fading problem was fixed and are still the beautiful golden color than oak carpets should be. They've been with the car in storage the whole time.

      I have no idea what's goin on in there. My dad just threw it on there somehow so he could pass safety a couple years ago. I've never looked closely at it so I'll take a closer look and report back.

      We set the wastegate (it was set to about 0.5 psi lol) and tested the PCV. Turns out it's still clogged. Generating enough vacuum to pass the glove test but not enough to actually work correctly. The passages in the block are the last part to be serviced, so we'll drop the pan and take care of that at some point. The new oil filler cap and seal combined with popping the dipstick up seem to be working for keeping the oil in the engine for now.



      Then we went and did other things while Ben attempted to use it to break the internet, came back later to install a Jetex,






      and then took a drive to Costco to see how it was sounding. Sounds good. Very quiet and no drone at all. I think my dad will approve.


      That laser blue is fire!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
