Damn boy, better have her ready for may 8th

On a sad note Kobe messed up the front of the vette pretty good. Aperently there was a stroller in the middle of 201, tried missing it but it tagged the front left. He sent me a few pics I'll have to post them tomorrow when I get a chance

Hey you think Kobe could use a set of quad tipped corvette mufflers?

That sucks though, and Jesse WTF is that? I can't tell. But hey now you get to build an engine.

Honestly i havent used the nitrous in 3-4 weeks. So I really dont know what caused it. It over heated on Wednesday, so i parked it for about an hour went back out my check engine came on and it ran like shit. I had the check engine light ran on Thursday pulled a few codes so Friday i decided to do a compression test based on the engine codes and they were horrible. (like i said 60-70psi across the 4 cylinders). So i pulled the engine Friday and found that hole in the intake mani and cylinder 1's plug was covered in oil and the porcelian and the spark plug is actually loose. So i am trying to get my hands on some svt pistons and rods, some arp head studs and a new head gasket.
