Living in the desert has its advantages and disadvantages. Driving our cars in the summer with no A/C is miserable but we do get to drive them all winter long. I've been driving the car quite a bit since I did the engine swap and got a new driveshaft from IE. Still working out an exhaust clearance issues with the getrag 240 rear mount bracket. I can say the car runs strong and alot better than the tired m10 I replaced. The plan is to take it on some long trips and its getting closer to being ready.
