Glad to see you back at it Ben! That's an amazing difference with the mag cleaner.

Here's a quick update from the weekend.

I installed the cradle and it clears the balancer but there was a small casting nub on the steering rack that was going to interfere with installing a serpentine belt. I decided to go ahead and grind it flush. I'm still not sure what purpose it serves. There seems to be some type of void or something that was underneath it. I didn't want to go any further with the grinding and clearance is adequate now. It's still solid and I cycled the rack to make sure there weren't any leaks.

I also changed out the accordion boot on the driver's side of the steering rack. It's been leaking for a while due to the way the piping was routed and rubbing on the previous turbo kit.

Thanks, I'm being told it is a rivet that holds the 2 piece rack housing together. I'm not too concerned. There looks to be enough material left that it will still handle any possible shear forces. It's between the two mounting points for the rack so not much is going on.
