I spent the day yesterday getting the last few things put together and  
hooked up to start the car. I prefilled the Mocal oil cooler and oil filter and  
turned the car over for a bit with the injectors unplugged to get oil pressure  
up. I also drained the old gas and put some new 94 in.  I plugged  the 
injectors in and it fired right up. The new 3" turbo back exhaust sounds  great and 
with the new header you can hear each cylinder fire, its more lumpy  sounding 
like I'm running a real aggressive cam. It took a bit for the lifters  to fill 
and quit ticking but it finally quieted down. That all I could do as I  still 
have more work before its on the road. I have to relocate the battery to  the 
trunk, change the rear hubs to S2 hubs, redo some wiring that is to close to  
the exhaust, and a few other little things and I'll be able to take the first  
test drive. Doesn't sound like much but my extra time right now is minimal so 
 things are taking a bit longer than planned.
