The car's been on the road since September and I've had all the updates over on MotorGeek http://www.motorgeek.com/viewtopic.php?t=45645 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.
