You are a legend for getting that thing together under budget. Glad to have been a (very small) part of it! Also glad we can finally talk about it!

This is awesome!  Did you get it running enough to drive around?

I haven't driven it much.  Just some doughnuts in the shop parking lot.

I was wondering if it really is a Maserati running gear.  I'll admit I expected a van engine swapped in but the real engine makes it that much more legendary!

Awesome work sir - apologies that we couldn't be more help on the epic journey.  Can't wait to see videos of it being driven in anger.

Damn, roll home from work, take care of some chores, turn around, and there's an entire biturbo thread! Good luck and thanks for adding to an already good Friday!

For $143.60, Lenny from AutoItalia sent me the rebuild kits for the clutch and brake master cylinders as well as a new hose for the clutch.

I recognize that name!  I've raced against their biturbo in SFR SCCA ITE (a local "run whatcha brung" class).

So I guess option 5 is to cage it and go road racing! :)

Thanks!  I'm still out here, but that's a good reminder I need to close it up!

If any car does, I'd think that a Biturbo deserves a budget exemption.

Unloaded at the track and passed tech!

The brake/clutch fluid reservoir was low enough that the light on the dash came on.  It was leaking from the line to the clutch master cylinder, so we put a clamp on it and topped off the fluid.  Now we see how it goes.
