LouBomb So i got the hitch installed in the gangster van, ill probably just trailer to the hotel and then drive to the track. not sure yet on full details.. but im very excited only 23 days away!!!

I had it made by a local vinyl shop years ago in Chicago.

Im almost sure now they sell it online at the time they didnt tho :(

if you can't find it online im sure Josh at 360Dsgns can hook you up. He is a FF member here and owns a print shop.

LouBomb i think at this point my car just likes to play with my feelings lol

idle is off and i realized i used too small of a vacuum source right before the throttle body.. so i had to take that off and weld a much bigger source..

also one of the bolts for the TB stripped and i had to remove it all and re-tap and re-install plus redo the gasket for it.

good news is seems like the leaks at the valve cover are cured.. for now lol

if all goes well... i hope to finally do WOT tuning.. i want to give it a go at the 1/4 this year.. overall im very happy given that this time last year my car was a mess lol

tonight i put her back together and pray to the turbo gods that she idles fine..

FocusFest is about a month away so its crunch time..
