I didn't see how you made your motor mounts. Are they solid, or just very stiff? I'm wondering about the lack of flex built into all the plumbing.

Endearing, sure. But it's nice to have some actual information in front of you sometimes. But on a stock 140, I'd probably leave the dog dick speedo.

I've all but abandoned the rwd thing. Hopefully I can figure out how to keep both cars, and the 142 can be a 300+ whp death trap, while the 99 gets a mostly stock 200 hp 16v turbo.

I like them. It was nice to be able to dial in the damping initially, but I haven't really adjusted them since. For how flat my car stays in corners, the ride is what I would call totally acceptable.
