1. Put the catalytic converters back in for inspection this week
2. Put the black powdercoated Borla axle backs back on after powdercoater fixed the coating on them under warranty
3. Changed the oil
4. Fixed the illumination on my pillar gauges. I tapped a wire behind the headlight switch and the tap I used was too large and only making intermittent contact.
5. Cleaned and oiled the air filter
6. Put in the LED headlight kit I bought last summer
7. Changed the oil in the supercharger
8. Emptied the catch cans. Passenger side bone dry. Driver side about 3 ounces.
9. Put the front license plate back on
10. Discovered a bad injector on cylinder 6

Yesterday I had the rare opportunity of parking next to a car cooler than mine:

I don't think so but it was tastefully tricked out. I didn't hear it run but it looked nasty with some very beefy rubber on it.

Finally got my oil separator catch-can installed. No more worries about the turbo getting gummed up. That happened to my dad's VW turbodiesel years ago and I remember how it struggled to climb hills.

Chainge the oil, oil in the tranny, installed my new MGW flat stick shifter, and lastly my new steeda jacking rails. The rails are definitely worth it.
