Motivation has hit an all time low. I remember the times I used to sneek in mini-installs during the weekday.



On yesterday's post, forgot to mention that Danny ordered 8 new HT0 plugs. 7 of my original set are practically new, but heh.. what do I know. Yay! That means another $90!


Now let me go look for my Xanax.

Nothing like pouring money out the wallet. Or does it even make it to the wallet?

I'm still looking at early next week. It's okay, just a few more days won't kill me.
  • Stock windage tray can't bolt back to the block because of the ARP mainstuds. Solution, you're outta here!
  • Anti-knock sensor had to be epoxied on the block. Why? New MMR block had the bosses for the sensors ground down (maybe for a sc Cobra).
  • New alignment dowels had to be ordered lastweek because the MMR block did not come with any.
  • New Fidanza aluminum flywheel! Can you say '1st gear is no good?'
  • New Centerforce DF clutch (in box, hope it's the right one)
  • NAPA 5w30 reg oil, oil filter, and coolant ready to go.
Danny asked me if I want him to put an ultra-conservative tune on it or stay with what's in it now (Brenspeed tune). I told him we'll leave the Brenspeed tune in. He asked if it ran good with it? Told him it ran like a raped ape until things went sounth. He thought it was funny.

Well no track for me tonight. Went with the Wife and Sis-In-Law to Dave & Busters. Looks like it's Barona tomorrow night for me. I may hold off though considering I'll be there next Friday. To bad you guys aren't closer as I'm home alone again for the weekend. And looks like it will be that way again next weekend. Good thing atleast Brian and Luis will be here next Friday for Barona.

okay.. I feel better now.

Amazing what 2 shots of Patron, 2 Black & Tans, and a Grey Goose/Lemonade will do to your outlook on life!

Leo, come up to the South Bay!! BE!!!

For your sake I really hope he isn't "busting azz" on your car.

I wasn't talking about him farting.

Motor should be in the car by today. I stress 'should'.

I sure hope it'll be ready by Wed, so I can check it's drivability IF I decide to head down to San Diego Friday... we'll see.
