Update to everyone on here. I have some seriously great news. The vehicle is running good, but I want MOARRRRR. My buddy Bret at The Custom Shop NYC has obviously felt the effects of slowed business due to the closing of NYC. I wont get into a political discussion here, but its really f'ed up how government literally ripped peoples livelihoods out from under them. Luckily, he is a licensed automotive repair shop on paper, but has done all the work so far with #Slamsit. 

 

I told him finish my baby up and don't give me a price. I just want him to be able to eat and keep the lights on. Him and I have a great relationship that I can expect great result and not question the price. So here is the 2nd to final set of upgrades before I do the manual swap. I have a person in Cali who HAS done the manual swap and everything is working great, minus a flash for certain pinouts for the PCM and working functions of the BCM. Other than that, he's got it down. Having this thing as a manual will open up more possibilities.....but I still like the NA aspect of it......but then again, boost is an option.....ALWAYS. 

 

There are other things most likely forgotten on the list....I took the picture at my work computer, and here it is.

Oh yeah....I also sourced and now have the rear drum to disc conversion. First one in the USA to do this.....better yet, first one in the USA to do any of this stuff to a Transit Connect.  LOL

A lot of different points of view.  A lot of opinions.  Just glad that you're safe & healthy.  The build is working out really well.

Why not forget about hydraulic power steering with it's pumps, hoses and belts and just install electric power steering like all the Gen 2 TC's have??  Hydraulic power steering is so . . . . yester-year!  I have 5 vehicles in my garage and every one of them has electric power steering  -  Heck, even my little Kubota diesel garden tractor has electric power steering!!  😋

Change the lower part of the UK mirror bracket with the US one and the mirror angle will be fixed.
