Default It's Been a While

Hello all,
I haven't been too active over here recently and I should get into posting more on here again, it is a great site and it is where I learned a lot of my S-Series knowledge.
In the meantime I have been working on my 95, preparing for a turbo. Ill throw the link to the build thread below. I am hoping to have it together by the beginning or middle of june, as I would like to road trip it to Michigan again as part of my yearly vacation. Anyway, my goal is to make a relabile low boost daily, and so far it is going great. I have the tuning solution installed and running with my regrind cams. I think this will be a fun little car when it's done. Not a racecar by any means, I am keeping it entirely stock appearing on the interior (besides two gauges), and exterior. Just some more power under the hood, that's all I am after.
Anyway, thanks for reading this and once school is over I should be more active on here.
Take care all,
Chris

Page 1 is from when I first got the car and basic matinence and upkeep, Page 2+ is where it gets more interesting.

Looks like a nice build and you've spent a ton of time on it and it seems like this would really kick even as a NA build.
I'm sure you've got a 2nd car in case the turbo doesn't go smoothly.

Good to see a familiar user name again from the "old days"

Still reading your build thread (just started on p2), great job on your car. I'm impressed at the work and always a little jealous when I see how little rust some cars have in comparison.

Do you remember what year coupe your steering wheel came off of? Couldn't remember if 95 steering column mount for steering wheel was unique or if it was the same as all 2nd gens. Thanks

I have a spare engine to drop in, as well as my father's backup car. I am not planning to push it too bad either, keeping it on the safe side.

All steering wheels from 1995-1999 should interchange. The wheel on it now is a 97-99 perforated leather coupe wheel. I have an original 95 standard leather wheel as well as a 96 style. It is funny how much they changed just the lather patterns around over the year.
95 had a single seam at the bottom, 96 had two seams near the spokes, and 97+ was perforated from what I gather

Thank you! Do the pictures load for non-members? That was my concern with posting on 6s.

If you need an A/C saver manifold for a second or first gen I believe I have a good one made up. Should be right around the $300 mark too. It will hold a t-25 turbo, or a td04 from a saab (what I am using).
