What happened to BFG's??

You've never heard of the "Taco Bill" tune?

I got mine last year.

5,000th Post!!!!!!
Yup, Toyos'. They're the only ones that have the 295's in the diameter I need... BFG and Nittos don't have it.

You have the TB tune? No wonder why your car is so fast!

Congrats on the 5k post!

Don't worry Jon, yours will be done soon.
I'll post pics of mine just as soon as it's ready to go.

Hey David, I think Leo's playing a trick on us.
You can basically type whatever you want in the SCT Liveload program.. I'm on to you Leo!

Sucks is I start me new job the 15th also... No car, I'll have to be borrowing to commute. tsk tsk. Cant win em all. Seeing Bill's install and first impressions wont make anything easier!
Sucks to hear that Jon, but the bright side is you've got a date. From there it's all downhill.... the wait that is. Importantly you're comfortable with the installer, that has to be a huge weight off your shoulders. Of course the 15th (or the 17th for me) can't get here quick enough.

We're getting three cars blown within a week, that ought to be a record of some sort. ??

Sorry Ray, it was a literally a last minute gig. You've got advance notice for Friday's Kings Head though.

Doh! I forgot to write your name in! Sorry George.
At least we had photographic proof that you were there.

Nice pics Jed!

Looking forward to Kings Head. Maybe I'll try that banger and mash thing this time.

And if Crissy is there, we can do a group shot with her!

Yay! No green lines visible on the compressor bypass hoses (all turned to the rear).


Hard to see, but thermostat housing clamped in place.


Power Steering fluid filled

What's wrong with 285's? Not big enough for the Taco's standards?

Thanks.
Yup that's exactly what I did.

Looks like the SC install is nearing the final stages.

Only want to say that mine is bigger than yours.

Nothing wrong with 285s, in fact, I'm fine with that if I get a better deal on them than the Toyos'. But having a choice, I'm going with the wide azz meats out back!

Finally found some detailed pics on the Shelby CS 69 wheels in chrome.

Any final thoughts about them? I'm open to all suggestions.

Didn't think I'd say this.....

I like these better than the chrome on black versions

Bling, but not too much that you gotta wear diamond teeth and some gold chains.
