Still waiting on S50/52. :( If I can't get anything in the next month, will just build a 2.8 and when I get to Japan for vacation next month, source a Tech 1 front and rear and do a Henna respray

see my other post, find one local to me and I'll pick it up and put it on a pallet. Then you can just arrange a lift gate pickup at my casa.

After too many shifty seller's the car will have a built 2.6 with MAF and repaint in Henna. Or if I can get an Mtech kit while in Japan next month that will go on as well

Currently on the search for Alpina vent gauge as well while there and other goodies

Just a quick update. After dealing with too many hassles being overseas, going to stay m20, yeah I know a dying breed. But hey got all the parts and it saves money, and get other work done to the car. Big thanks to Jparkr for taking on this project.

Moonroof install (Complete)
Refinish Alpina wheels (complete)
Engine bay repaint (Pending, and maybe entire repaint when I get back)
Antenna delete (Pending engine bay repaint)
16 in BBS RS
S52 swap (ixnay going 2.6 m20)
Cd43 install (Pending)

Sure I'm forgetting somethings but now it can get moving for my possible return in Nove/Dec for a drive back to Louisiana. As soon as I get pics will update more

Yes, it will work. Gotta get a White325 trans brace for it. Waiting on pics to update the thread. As of now, just waiting on this Porsche to get out of the paint shop to get the car in there and paint the bay. There will be pics
