Good luck at the race! If you take I79 South down there you'll pass within 15 minutes of my house.

Sounds like a blast, but it's probably going to be a full weekend for me. It's my son's 5th birthday and I'll be running a 5K. I will let you know if I'm able to come though, it does sound like fun.

Shucks, I just read that's the date for the NEFR (New England Forest Rally) at Sunday River in Newry ME.

Closer for you, but I'm guessing NOT the sanctioning body you run in...

Kick up some stones for us testing that thing up there in Maine...

Luck!

Been wondering for a few days if you ever got a chance to do a test run........

"tastes like crap"..... you brought back memories long story short I've got a dog that drank a quart of transmission fluid once. Called the vet and read the ingredients to her and she said it would pass right though her..... for 3 days it was coming out over her.

Hey MM, have you had an opportunity to drive the car with the new engine as yet and if so how is it performing? Judging by the mods you've done it should have a nice flat torque curve.. Also has anyone here tried this combo with ITBs and stage 2 Crane or Crower cams, and whch of those two brands have been found to produce the best power?

Seriously?

All of that and not a single word about how it drives, performs or dyno numbers?

Bumping for info that should be in here already.
