    Hopefully all wrapped up by the end of September.

    I have a midcase at pct to design a midcase brace but Corona pushed that back. Hopefully he'll have one ready for me to install sometime soon, the transmission is ready to go back together otherwise.

    I'm thinking the intercooler piping should be all tacked up by the weekend and possibly even started getting them welded up.

    Heres the list of the things remaining, its really not that much at all:

    Oil and fluids
    Belts
    Weld Valve cover baffles
    Weld manifolds
    Weld wastegate dump tube
    Wiring harness
    Reseal brakes
    Weld intercooler piping
    Weld bov flange
    Build transmission
    Assemble interior
    Wire in COP
    Wire in gauges

    I'm going to take the engine back out to re-lube everything before final assembly since its been sitting for so long.

    Great, so very soon? How long has the motor been sitting? If you used assembly lube you should be good for quite some time.

    I got the shortblock back from Merkel in 2016. Rather be safe than another post about spun bearings on a new engine.

    I broke the bandsaw blade during the week so I can't cut piping again until Wednesday, but I decided to weld up what was already cut and pieced together.

    Beginning to get pretty real. I think the piping will be completely finished by the end of the weekend
