I took my evo to my local performance shop to get some tuning done and get my timing belt replaced.

Did a boost leak test and fixed a leak but then a leak came out of a mysterious spot on the back of the throttle body

It's going to be a fun day. After this, the only fluid I have left to change is the coolant and that will happen when I do the timing belt and such.

Since the RS doesn't have headlight leveling controls, I put my E85 gauge there. Being right next to power and ground sources is an added bonus. Getting a dual map tune at RRE on Friday!

Drove to Sears which has always been my goto for hand tools to view their last minutes. The Craftsman section is gutted. I bought a kit of probes for my multimeter and my wife bought a clock. There's not much left in the store except $2000 clothes washers marked down to 1500. Goodbye Sears.

Yeah, sad state of business affairs for sure (Sears / Kmart / JCPenny etc). Nothing lasts forever

Was swapping my oem ex manifold for a fp cast cb port and noticed I had a snapped bolt on the hot side. Looks itís been there a while, fastener I took out looked cleaned up to not bottom out. Lol fck that so I drilled some holes in some m10 bolts on the lathe for a guide. Carbide bits cut through them in a minute. Left handed bit didnít work on the broken fastener but finally the easy out did. Cleaned up the threads and the hot side is off to cb for a port. What a motherfkr but itís fixed the right way. It would of held, and did hold with the ~6 threads I had but now it wonít keep me up at night.

Shipped my trans and tc to ShepTrans for refresh/rebuild. Shortblock is the last piece to this journey.
