Hi everyone

Things are looking great for the Es2 conversion.  I drove around for probably 10 miles getting the alligment better, and watching the behavior of the motor.

I originally had an aby downpipe.  I cut it, and that's what's on the car right now.  Just a downpipe without any exhaust parts.   My neighbors finally complained.

Went something like this " my dogs thinks your car is a motorcycle when you come by the house, do you think you could quiet it down a bit".   Which basically means: "My wife has no patience for loud things on the weekend, could you quiet your car so I don't have to listen to her bitch".

So After a little bit of searching on the internet. I am now getting a few parts from germany.

250 euros:

throttle body
throttle cable
rear light harness

I think it's a good buy.  

Basically I should be able to bolt all the exhaust together now.  Which means I can drive the car to Massachusetts to get an alligment and a corner balance.

The brake system is acting up again.  The light is no longer permanently on. However it does come on when I slam on the brakes.  I'll figure it out at some point.
