Well, we did the big push over the weekend and after a long delivery, a 
snorting, bouncing blue S2 rally car was born!  I was working on it from 
1 PM yesterday, until 5 AM this morning.   The car was subsequently run 
around the parking lot, shooting flames from the side mounted exhaust, 
and loaded into a race trailer to drive 4 hours to Steamboat Springs, 
CO.   With luck it is now happily bouncing off of snow banks.

We dealt with the usual teething problems of a freshly assembled race 
car, but all in all it went remarkably smoothly.   There were a couple 
of wiring errors on the dash (no, I didn't do that part, but had to 
clean it up) that gave us some fits for a while and resulted in a blown 
ECU at 3 AM.   A minor oil leak on the turbo return line, some sticky 
suspension components that made alignment fun, and a few other little 
odds and ends to clean up.   We had hoped to get it on the dyno for some 
tuning before it went, but no such luck.  Here is a picture.  The 
picture accurately portrays my view of the car a 4 AM.

Damn, I'm tired...
