The car's been on the road since September and I've had all the updates over on MotorGeek for the mostly Audi content and did not have the time to post on both, sorry.
Here's a picture of the car today.

We have about 8" of snow from 2 recent storms and it's been fun. The engine compartment;

The glow plug relay fits where the fuel pump relay was. I had to run two wires for the temp sensor and the GP light and I used the now unused ABS light for that. I used the "O" terminal on the back of the fusebox that is a large spade terminal that connects internally to the relay. This is the intended GP output for the turbodiesel version of this car. I used the ABS 4.0 battery wire plugged on instead. That brought the hot GP source to the engine comp. via the ABS plug without running new wires; the other wires were in place. It works perfectly; the car started without a single misfire or smoke cloud @ 0 the other day. I switched to a 16" VW Dasher steering wheel for better leverage with the manual steering rack.

I swapped on an Audi turn signal cancel tang as they're in different positions and the horn ring for a spring loaded button from the Audi wheel. As far as mileage the past three tanks were; 39 mpg, 41.9 mpg, and 39 mpg. In that period of time I've swapped the turbo 2x and played with the pump timing about 8 different times; so when I leave the adjustments alone for a time; I'll see what's consistent. As I said before there's other details on the MG site also. This car is my daily driver and I love it. I'll work on the intercooler install when I can get back over to the workshed.
