Project Update: Turbo Van

I hope many winter projects take longer than expected, because mine is going on two winters and has a long way to go. When I'm asked how the van is progressing I'm a bit embarrassed at my unwillingness to brave my frozen garage. Well after a few trips to the junk yard and a couple Sundays turning wrenches, I've made some solid progress. No, its not running yet.

Most improvements are on the electrical side. Other than wiring an electric fuel pump its just about complete. Also installed are the radiator, intercooler, and nearly everything else under the hood. What's left is plumbing fluids like fuel, coolant, and all the intercooler and intake tubing.

Predicting a completion date feels self defeating. I want it running to tow race car and mountain bikes around this summer but I'll need to get race cars running in the immediate future. I'm not holding my breath but the light at the end of the tunnel might be visible.
