I know everyone is.

Still working away just slow. We are documenting the lower brace modification now so anyone can repeat the design.

But in a few years time the kids can lend a hand in the garage.

We are working on matching the pairs ourselves. If we can make it work we will resale the wire diagram.

Really happy to see you're still at this. Would still love to do a video on this, perhaps once you get crank. Otherwise, would love to lend a hand on one of these crunch weekends

Plan right now it to make a "work" group to help move this along. As most of us are busy, in order to keep it moving we need more team to help. Plan is still do document the whole thing so anyone can do it.

Even better would be if you had whoever did the front subframe modification make multiple copies of that...

Some day I want to put this motor in an E46 zhp sedan...
