Its OK mag, I don't even understand myself sometime.

Its the drugs, Legal even. I've been through some tremendous traumas and I'm not like everybody else. I seem to bond well with Vets, due to that.....

I acquired them years ago... some 7 years now. back when a company called F2 was around and offered turn key transmissions. my 2nd gear synchro's were going bad and needed a rebuild / new transmission but due to temporary living in another state doing something I needed my car (Was a installer for alarm systems) I needed something I could install in less than 48 hours and work.

I got the transmission from them and had them install the 4.10 gears. Thinking on it I should have had them put in the LSD also. Since they were rebuilding it already their was no charge for installation just the raw cost of the parts.

I like it, although I am told once I go FI the 4.10 gears will make first almost useless. but being NA at the moment I like it. Doing an autoX event it put me in 3rd gear the whole time where I could see if I was on stock gears 3rd would be to high and 2nd would run out of gas.

My PMG I am seeing on average is about 28-26 MPG. I think I took about a 1MPG hit. I am at 3k RPM in 5th gear when at about 70ish (due to tire size and gears my speedo is not all that accurate)

Yea I jump in and out of the other forums when I see something interesting or something that I can actually contribute (or think I can contribute to). I am usually always on but more in the off topic areas or trying to see if anyone local is selling some cheap stock rims.
