2011. Yesterday it had about 25 miles on this motor. Today a few more lol. Still a lot of things to learn about it.

Not such a huge project since it has a lot done to it already. I'll get around to a list, but basically it was a Mann Engineering Type 25 except now it has the original motor back in it. It will be a little while while breaking it in. Stuff already waiting to go back on after that (pulled so it could be smogged).

Basically. Chassis has 4900 mi. which were on the Cosworth motor + custom Garrett turbo, which is what is in the Type 25. He would normally put the car back to stock completely and sell it either back to the dealer or private, but that's labor and time so we worked it out so I could get the original motor in it and what you see. If I wanted to keep it the way it was, it would have cost a lot more. I drove it like that....wow After a few years as a showcase car, they need to build a new one with the latest stuff on it, so they sell the "old" one. He currently has a Launch Edition and I believe another 2015 that they're working on.

Found a bunch of green bubble gum all along the drivers side starting at the front tire... so got that all off and waxed it. URs are coming this week. Also found out my reverse lights don't work and apparently it is a known issue?

Had to make an appointment with Subaru on the reverse lights. Mann looked at it and everything checked out so they don't know what's going on. And now have Takata airbag recall on it as well.

On a positive front, ALMOST broken in...been putting the "unnecessary" miles on it to get there. Sat a little grape action off Skyline Sat
