The dry sump install is nearly finished and will probably be ready to start tomorrow. There’s also connecting the new alternator – I think I know which wire to connect, but it’s always a bit dicey when it comes to potentially high current.

Some of today was spent patching the unneeded holes in the spare valve cover: oil filler, dip stick, and a spare bolt boss. The “Honda Motors” was filed off and a nice CNC “Midlana” plate will be fabricated, then either welded or riveted on.

Also ordered parts for a new air filter box; the current one is too shallow to accept larger (deeper) air filter elements. Doing it again also allows improving how the air is ducted into the turbo, hopefully this one will be a bit cleaner than the first try.
