Nothing going on at the moment. I still need to work on an insulator between the head and manifold, and also wrap the back and underside in reflective heat tape.

I did get a code thrown from removing the IMRC and leaving the flag set to o"1" in the tune. Out of frustration I just removed the IMRC from the stock intake and wired it up! I was in a rush and driving over 300 miles on-way so that's where it sits now. I have a couple lean spots in the tune, but none in WOT.
Right now it is set at 10-11psi, overall running fine and the meth injection is also fine. I need to get my slicks mounted and try to hit the track once this year before they close.

I have no more build plans for 2012 other than gathering parts for 2013. I still need rods, bearings, clutch/flywheel and diff. I'll play with the tune a bit more but that's all.

I do have a full set of poly suspension bushings I need to install at some point. I just hate messing with the pos rusted bolts on the rear suspension.
