Thank baby Jesus. I actually like those wheels, same finish as i have on my BBS CHs. Might have to look into that

Well I got a call from AUTuning today.... they could not find the distribution block for the Aquamist system..... which is a good sign. We found it and they said they would have an update for me tomorrow with some pictures. I am excited to hear where we are and that something has happened.

Were we seperated at birth, looking at the same flooring and cabinents. Are those the pro3.0 line cabinets? How do you like them?

Brothers from another mother.... They are New Age Pro 3.0 cabinets. Really like them. Just bought one more of them for the other side of the garage.

Installing the sound system and 43in 4K TV on my workbench now. It will have a Roku device and a Mac mini. Klipsch speakers and Denon receiver.

UPDate

No official reports yet but they did call and say they were in the process of mounting the Aquamist reservoirs in the back (they called to ask about mounting preference) and I know they were doing under the hood work yesterday so the Aquamist install should be near completion or done. That means intake manifold is on and all the fuel stuff is in place now sooooo we should be getting closer to actual startup.

Still waiting for official report on progress and pics.

Went down to AUTuning. A lot has been done. Waiting for some intake tubing and one more turbo line. There is a chance the car will be started late next week.

We will run with the RS4 injectors and 100% Meth in the Aquamist direct inject system and see how far we get. If necessary will add a large 5th injector.

I may .... may... consider being one of the first to go with RS3 injectors here. At least I haven't seen anyone else in U.S. using them.
