Hoping to knock out this year's big Volvo project next week. I've got most of the T5 bits and bobs now and took the week off. Should be fun.

Fancy pants LSD for me. No more burning off the inside tire out of low-speed corners. As if...

I need to dedicate more time to reading poetry and listening to my Manilow LP's.

Everything is sold. Going to install the motor in it's new home haul away the shell.

Been a lovely ride. The longest I have ever kept a car.

Darn. Sorry to see the wagon go.
Kjet to 2.2 is straightforward. FWIW I believe it is easier to keep the Kjet fuel pump relay to run the pumps vs re-wiring to use the 2.2 relay to power the pumps (the 2.2 relay is still needed for other 2.2 circuits IIRC).

Thx boss. Much appreciated.

Three cars in the garage. It’s not pretty, but hey.

At some point it stopped being fun I suppose. I have regrets of course. Especially for the level of power we achieved with the B21FT. The acceleration between 70 and 90 mph was exhilarating.
