Yes, I'm still alive. I've been very busy. I had to buy a welder to help me along with a few stages of Project Phoenix, but it's coming together quite nicely. I overshot my completion date by about six weeks, and at this point, I can't speculate as to when it'll be done, but I'm going to put it at a month out before it's usable and two months before it's pretty. BTW- Suzuki XL-7 engines sound like quiet versions of 350Z motors. No shit. I believe I now own the worlds smallest turbocharger. The compressor inlet is just under an inch in diameter, and the compressor housing is 3.8" across. Gotta love '80's IHI turbos.
