1.8 ZVH engine in, Fel-pro head gasket fitted, water is almost plumbed in, just have to attach the turbo to the turbo cooler, all breather hoses are on. Had to fabricate a couple of hoses, modify the oil return and the cam belt tensioner. Just called it a night tonight to have pizza and a few beers.

On with it tomorrow, just starter motor, and a few little bits to check, double check, treble check etc!!! And then hopefully have some foreced induction back in my life tomorrow!!! yeah baby!!!
