My only winter project is to put the LS back to perfect condition. Got some minor suspension work to do.

Polished Aluminum Intake Tube
X Cal 2
Exhaust
Get all the amps wired up and the subs pounding....

Got no licence for the next 60 days, starting tomorrow, so plenty of money saved on gas to stock up on handwarmers and a warm jacket....

Well I pick up a 98 MKVIII DOHC Tedsik aluminum block not sure if I'm going DOHC or SOHC yet but it is at the engine shop getting a re- sleeved to a big bore and having the crank polished and balanced with forged internals. I have till the 18th of Dec to decide on heads.
A tru-loc with 3:73 gears in a 98MKVIII pumpkin Circle D torque converter. Then if there is any money left there will be more.

97 - 4.6L Alpine Green Cougar XR-7 w/ Fiber Concepts Hood, SPC cold air intake, 2.5 SLP Dual Exhaust, Eclipse CD4000 w/ Polk's speakers, Koni Shocks, 11/4" Addco sway bars, and Vogtland more to come.
