Don't we like doing charities ... o for those of you who are low on cash all the time.

Doing a charity is great for tax time. Keep that in mind if you didn't know.

And knowing is half the battle ..........

well that was fun, it was an extreme install!

Big shout out to staX and Zab for making it out during the horrible weather.

So after getting the old intake out we had to stop since the rain started and then PUSH the car to the other side of the lot and place it under a car port to keep working while it was raining. But it's ON now, woot! Thanks again Roel for helping out with the install on that. Now the stress bar didn't actually go on.Either the bar is too long or the car twisted weird. Regardless the bar is another day, I am scared that I might have to drill out a little of the hole to get it to fit.

Anyway was driving around to TRY and get to the charity thing but it was outside (Didn't know that) and it got flooded out.

Anyway it was fun and very wet. Thanks again guys. ^_^

Glad to hear that something got done lol. Don't worry about the stress bar. Sometimes you have to jack up the car on one side to get it to fit.

I had to jack up my car on one side to get the stress bar on for the first time. Now, after all this time it goes on as easily as it came off.

SUCCESS!!! In the battle of stress bar vs. Man, man just won!

A pro tip btw is two jack stands would be better and take all three nuts off the tower and then brute force is your friend. Honestly though it was tough to get that SOB on the car. But now that it's on... WOOOOOOOO! Feel the difference and I like it. ^_^
