That guy really dug himself a hole in the first thread. He could use a little polishing himself in the customer service area. Comes off a bit phony.

I'll be gone for most of the day tomorrow (family stuff), but will try and logon in the evening.

Hopefully on Saturday, I'll put the driveshaft project to bed. All that's left is to get another thicker shim made, might attempt to shorten my MGW throw, and install my new longer bolts.

With any luck, I'll go on a test drive and give you guys some honest feedback on it.

when I got home Sunday it was one of the first things I look at and noticed... crap she is pregnant.
She was NOT my target. The purple one was, I swear

Then I promptly went to sleep and forgot about the whole thing til now. I might have another one around I'll have to see if I have it.

In my defence, and it's a poor one at that, the DSLR isn't as stealthy as a little powershot is for taking these types of pics, ya know ??

I attempted to take pics of the Mustangs, but these people got in the way.

That alone just about trumps all the advantages of a DSLR.
*note to self, bring the powershot for the next car show so Leo doesn't freak out*

Dang Bill! Think you'll have it in time for the next Cafe meeting?

If a KB customer is being pushed back in schedule, whomever is doing the pushing must be a 'big time' customer!

I too was looking at those MSD Blaster coils. I'm also curious what made you get these (besides them being red). Aren't these like +$200?







Ah 8 little piggies made it home!




Man these can fast in the mail via FedEx Friday 2 day delivery! So I might install them Friday night! Don't they look SEXY!

Here's the data that made me do it:



Will I notice the diffrence? I don't really know but a coil upgrade was recomemded by the guys at Superior and people that I have spoken with that have a KB install or any Supercharger. There is a performance gain on the dyno but will "my" rear end feel it probably not. It's kind of like the individual performance mods we do by themselves as a human you might not notice it but when you add up all of those mods up. Suddenly you have HP & Torque galore! Remember my goal is 500RWHP. So I'm trying to get this when they dyno my car. These install delays make me spend more money but if it gets me 500 RWHP Ya Baby!



Okay I'm not telling the truth I really got them because their RED!

Ah these girls have a special place in our hearts! This is what a long lens can do. I was over 200 feet away! Why do you think I went Pro!

Muhahah!

Bill2- With all the gobs of power you'll be getting from the KB, I don't think you'll really need to feel any gain with those.

She's got scaby heels! trust me I went there. I didn't want to gross you out. You know the art of tease But still I wouldn't throw her out of bed for eating crackers!

I see that the Taco is up! it's 11:50 p.m. I know he's typing so I'll stick around before I play a round of Battlefield2.

I forgot to logoff lastnight!

On the Blaster coils, if they help your FI and A/F, I'd get them too.

Can't wait to see EVERYHING in person... maybe at the next Cafe Meeting?

Speaking of which, I'm thinking of cheesing out the QMXI show. I'm planning on the Sunset show for sure, but I'm loosing motivation for the QM.


btw, nice pic B2!

Amen!!! Man this makes me want to ditch the kit lens I have and get something for better telephoto pics.


You play Bf2... I still have Battlefield1942 that I play on my mac. Just no one to hook up with on servers

By looking at the article they used a FI'd car(an 04 at that). If/When I'm FI I'd really consider these as well. But NA results... that would be interesting.
Have to say if I bought any ignition product MSD would be just about the only I'd buy from.

You're not going to QMXI... :whoohoo: some of us have a chance.

Of course I am only joking. I'm probably not making QMXI either.

I either forgot or missed that entirely. Didn't know you weren't going.

I'm not going 'cause it looks like my stripes are on hold 'til October 5th or so. I was reminded last night that I can't wax, polish or put stripes on the spoilers until then. So no go for me.

Looking at this pic again the other day and notice a few things that made me say WTF.
1)The knife hanging under the steering wheel.
2)The throwing knife on the dash behind the cobra emblem.
3)The can of mase wrapped around the ebrake.

This guy's ready to kick some a$$.
