Trying to get more miles behind the wheel, just hard to find the timeβ€”especially when every time I drive it all three of my kids insist on a ride.

some of you may be curious what all has been going on with the Coupe behind the scenes--and in this post, I'll tell you.

a while back, the Coupe threw a CEL and was misfiring on two cylinders. the typical coil pack swap didn't solve the problem, and a compression test revealed the likely culprit was the head gasket. turns out, it was much more. a previous owner most likely money shifted and did some serious damage to the engine, and it didn't get repaired properly. among other things, the Coupe needed new cams, new followers, new valve lifters, and what amounted to a pretty serious head job.

since the head was dissembled, it made sense to do an NA build concurrently. so the block and head were both planed and copper plated, and in went Shrick cams, 24 lb injectors, an M50 intake manifold, a Porsche 3.5

none of this would have been possible without the help of my friends jan and steve at @germanautotechinc. their long hours and incredible dedication to this build makes this coupe what it is today. they are masters at their craft, and i wouldn't leave my coupe in the hands of anyone else. thank you guys! i owe you both many beers--this is one badass coupe 🍻
