Well, I sat down and figured out I went 22 weeks without a weekend off, so zero progress was made to anything on any of my various projects.

Winter is here now and I am *still* not home and the contractor is trying to tell us the paint he used on the beam that caught fire is 'just as good as replacing it' instead of replacing it like he was supposed to, so no idea when I actually get to move home, so I have no idea when progress will begin to be made. But hopefully next year the young gun is ready to take on some of the weddings and I can dedicate some much needed time to this car. 

Not much to update other than it needs a through cleaning inside and out and needs to be driven. Soon I hope!

So today marks 15 years of owning this car. Its the little goals right?

Maybe this week I will get outside and swap out the ignition coils, and maybe jack up the front end and get ready to tackle from suspension stuff. Really REALLY want to be driving this car this summer.

It's dusty in here.

Well, another summer has come and passed and I spent it all at weddings, again. And I didn't get to drive this car, again. 

But not all terrible news, I *did* get the ignition coils swapped over, and gave the car a thorough thorough cleaning after years of sitting, it no longer smells musty inside it. Car is under a cover for winter.

I Hope its just fuel pressure adjustments required in spring and front lower control arms to change and *should* be good to go driving and enjoying it. Also need to swap in the 2.0bar MAP sensor once I find a proper pin out for the Hyundai sensor (The Genesis coupe 2.0l also uses a 4 wire map sensor incorporating both MAP and intake air temp sensor in one) and then possibly be able to run at wastegate pressure of 7psi in all 4 gears!

Apparently I am *great* at both working on my cars and posting about it, but contrary to the adage 'no news is good news', nothing has happened. 

I do plan on backtracking on this car a bit tho.

Going to swap in smaller injectors and get it running and driving. I have a set from an 06 300 3.5 which are supposedly 22.8lb vs my factory 21lb, which should work *better* (but not 100% ideal) for the 7psi the turbo pushes.

Trying to source a low pressure boost controller. Waste gate pressure is 7psi, so in combination with the slightly larger injectors and slightly lower boost pressure (5-6psi), I should be able to drive this car as a daily. I do not need to hunt for big HP numbers, I just want to enjoy my car. 

Hopefully its not raining this weekend so I can get grass cut and hopefully get injectors swapped over and get it running this weekend. Still has a list of other things to do on it, but running / driving will be a huge motivator for me.

You got this! Looking forward to seeing this one as a driver!
