Valve covers just done. Didn't seem to have belt or tensioner issues yet, but I'll plan for that. Thanks!

They rarely go with much warning. You need to make the idlers a regular maintenance thing. If they fail, the front cover of the engine is destroyed. That is not fun.

Annnnnd... Finished.
Rear axle swap with some nice new poly trailing arm bushings (thanks AJ) was last week and the Turbo swap was finished up yesterday.

Coolant expansion tank and air filter also deserve a thanks to AJ.

No boost controller so I'm just running on wastegate(6psi) for now, but god damn what a difference. I forgot how satisfying those spooly spool and choo choo noises are.

I saw you on the 91 from Knight Street until the South end of the Alex Fraser bridge. Me Silver V50 AWD. You dark grey 245 lightly smoking in decel from custom exhaust. Tints all around. I think our eyes met just as I pulled ahead in the fast lane. But the tints are pretty dark.

Are you on here?

I thought it might be Leivon but the tints made it very hard to tell

380,000 kilometers or 380,000 miles?

How much for the K24?

I could possibly use that orange corner marker, if it's a driver's side lens.
