I'm sure it's just more web host silliness. It happens.

Re: Scorpio V2.0 has arrived : )

Busy as usual with everything else BUT working on this. Last week I sat down and put togther a checklist of what needs to be done to get this finished. Ugh. To that end, I finished up the manifold I started a while back. All it needs is to be coated. http://www.turbochuck.com/webimages/projects/Scor...

Not doing a 3-into-1 equal length, huh? :P
Yes, just pipe L's. The eventual plan is to have a turbo mounted over on the pass side, and the driver side will just feed into a crossover pipe to the turbo. No need for fancy equal-length headers here.

Re: Scorpio V2.0 has arrived : )

Messed with it a bit more yesterday evening. Found out that my existing (stock) alternator belt is just ling enough to work with the new set-up, so that's good. I also reinstalled the front track arms and sway bar, as well as worked out putting the spindles/struts/brake adapters back together. Looki...

How long has the car been sitting? Were the rotors a but rusty? Mine would do that for a short bit if the car had been sitting for a while, and the rotors got some rust on them.

Once I drove the car for a couple days, the problem would go away, as the rotors were an even finish again.

Battery Tray Replacement Options?

Working on the Scorpio, I pulled the battery to discover a very rotted battery tray.

I have no plans to move it to the trunk, so those options are out.
Other than building my own battery tray to replace the rotted stock one, are there any other options?
