They are going very well. There are 3 cars in house right now. 2 are torn down (turbos out, subframe dropped) and 1 is essentially done. We are using this opportunity to make sure our fixtures/jigs are 100%. So most of the time we are going back and forth between installing/removing/installing/removing parts. Here's a couple pics our production downpipe in its fabrication jig:




And there are other jigs for the manifold, oil drain assembly, hard coolant line, pre-intercooler pipe, etc,.



Luckily, we only need to do this work once. After that, we can start cranking out production kits for mail order.

Was just thinking the same thing. Love those pics of the down pipe in the jig. Looking so clean.
