I was able to finally meet someone from the Houston crew. I got to meet Jeremy when he came over to the shop to swap money for the gauge bezel. I wish i had more time that day to bs more than i did with him, but i was caught in the middle of talking on the phone with Tom, and trying to coordinate work for the next day with the shop before they closed. I wanted to check out his ride and wasn't able to.

I would like to one day catch up to all of you!!!!

Note: On a Sunday due to work.

I'm gonna make another gauge pod for my gauges with the bezel...thanks Jeremy!

Yeah you just answered my other question. Look like you might be the only other tx member that has been around as long has me? I can't believe we haven't met yet. I liked your gauge bezel. I might want to do that with mine. But for now I need to data log and get my tune updated. It's running way on the rich side.

I have to take a picture tomorrow of what i did with my firewire cable and how i installed it in my car to make datalogging a little neater. I will post that tomorrow. I was easy and cheap to do.

Edit: I've been all over the world several times bud. In and out of Texas a few times. And this is my first time living in Houston so i'm a NOOB to the area [grin]

Yeah I seen the other thread on how to make the cable. very easy and straight forward. The sad thing is it took my 6yrs before I finally put a tune on car. Just like the STS I wish I would have done it a long long time ago.

When do you suppose you're gonna get yours?
he said he is shipping it this week UPS 2-day.
he is just trying to find the manual and everything.

i really just want to run a 2.4" from massive, no ovd pulley but i dont want any belt slippage so just going to run what the kit comes with.
it only has 3k miles on the entire kit.

i just bought 7 sets of 60lb siemen deka injectors, 1 set for myself and 6 for some people in europe.
got a huge discount so, im not complaining.

i cant install it right away as uncle sam wants my money dmnit haha.
i need an xcal still. and aem then im set basically.

im really hoping to have 270whp when all is said and done. (optimistic right)
