Finally got around to working on the car some more.

It runs pretty hot on hot days - it hasn't overheated but it goes above 220* when stuck in traffic which is pretty toasty. I drained the radiator, refilled with distilled water + water wetter, and ran it to bleed the system. I haven't driven it yet but that combination should really help.

I'm going to try to find new top radiator hose too. I want one at a different angle - you can see in my signature image that it's extremely close to the exhaust manifold.

I did a boost leak test as well - first one since I bought it.

* Both throttle body gaskets leak (rough shape and not even the correct gaskets)
* IAT sensor leaks (bad bung threads - I destroyed them removing the IAT)
* Base idle set screw leaks (I replaced the o-ring but it still leaks - I need to try some dielectric grease)
* FPRV leaks at both adjust nut and vacuum fitting
* Injector #1 seal leaks (I pulled it and it's pinched so I ordered a full set of seals + o-rings)

I suppose it could be worse for a relatively unknown car. With the things I've already found from the previous owner, none of it surprises me.

In my case, it really didn't set in until my first son was born.

Thanks everyone! I'm both excited and nervous. Hasn't really fully set in quite yet.

Not sure if I should say 'congratulations' or 'I'm sorry'!
Note: wife and I are spawnless.

Much congratulations. Like Steve said, it's definitely a game changer. Just about everything in your life is going to change and you'll need to adapt. That makes it sound really negative but it's not intended - it really is a blast to join the world of fatherhood.

I've got two and they can be a real pain in the ass (especially the 5-month old and his sleeping) but it truly is a lot of fun.
