Today at AutoHQ (08-05-08):

Lots of diagnosis today.

Evo: Dropped off by another shop to diagnose their bad clutch installation. Yes, air EVO, I am driving it on the lift.

Honda: diagnosed frozen reverse lock cam.

Toyota: diagnosed damaged intake manifold and replaced spark plugs

STI: diagnosed suspension damage

Honda CRX: diagnosed blown head gasket

Sam started installing the STI wiring harness into the GC. Kevin and Sam started tearing down the RS engine for swap into Outback (towed in today).

Have a good evening.

Major service part 1: Prelude

Chicken wire WRX: fixed some exhaust leaks and installed missing 02 sensor, found this gasket made of what appears to be chicken wire and silicon.

Removed RS heads to go to machine shop. Sam continued installing the STI wiring harness into the GC.

Started WRX uppipe install.

In other news, I washed a supercharged Benz today, and then sent that parking lot cow off to greener pastures. But, alas, my plot to clear our parking lot of junkwas foiled by the arrival of a some little car from outerspace.

Just kidding, that little car is probably a fun to drive. But I wouldn't know as I have yet to drive one.

Yeah, it's been one of those days: almost got beat up. But I guess that's nothing compared to almost getting run over last night at the UCKK meet by some Red Baron gangsta.

you are probably right (I don't know much of technical stuff about this)... just can't help to think 'cheap' when I am so used to your typical manifolds...
