planning for not this weekend but the next.... the best part is I believe my parents will be out of town meaning I won't be making plans other than to work on it more, so try to swing by then :)

on a side note... I hate crappy spectre intake couplers. Had to grab one in a pinch for my turbo install. It has ripped and my AFR at idle has been 16-20 :/

I've heard you can get couplers from diesel shops.. apparently it's a lot cheaper and more durable.

Speaking of couplers..
I figured out what i need. the throttle body piping is going to require a 3" to 2.75" reducer to work, i'm ordering it from CFM.

It's a 3" on both sides.
Just ordered- VF mount, Fuel filter, Spark plugs, TB coupler, and ORP wrap.
this crap adds up quick.
