    Flushed the brake system, it was nasty, disgusting, gross, etc..... Cleaned the reservoir out as good as I could, really want to find a new(nice used) one. Installed Autotech braided brake lines in front. Also cleaned the front calipers and hardware. I went through the rears last weekend.

    Installed a deep dish MOMO wheel, like having the wheel closer to me. Also installed a set of team Heko wind deflectors.

    A Combination of last Saturday and this Saturday’s work, knocked some of the initial to do list off.

    Last Saturday I changed the valve cover gasket (will upgrade to the rubber version later on), added an upper oil baffle and changed all the vacuum lines with mk1autohaus silicone ones. And I had nicer time belt cover laying around so I put it on.

    Today I changed to O2 sensor, plugs, cap, rotor, spark plugs and plug wires. Also changed the oil pump(upgraded to the larger ABA one), oil pan gasket(upgraded to the rubber mk3 one),oil cooler seal and oil.

    Discovered the oil pan bolts where barely tightened and there wasn’t a gasket at all. Not even any sealant.

    While I was doing a test drive I hit 272,000 miles.
