^^^ what he said. im just getting all my details strait before i go nuts ordering a bunch of stuff that i dont need. i haven't even had a chance to put the turbo kit onto my car yet but hopefully i will have time for all of this in the coming weeks and months. first i have a 93 SSEi bonneville i need to finish. im down to minor bugs and what not to be done. hopefully i will finish it next saturday. after that i need to get my SVT put back together so i can start it up as a daily again and then after THAT it will finally be time to put the turbo kit on the zx3. after that ill daily between the SVT and zx3 until i either blow the stock motor in the zx3 forcing me to accelerate the build or until i amass all the parts over a few months to do the swap and up the boost sometime near the middle of next year. i would like to have all this done by july next year. and while i am amassing parts building the motor on a stand i will be doing a full restoration on my 71 C10 pickup. my grandpa bought it new, sold it to my dad who sold it to me but now its rusting away and i refuse to let it go. too much sentimental attachment but this is a backburner job that might be done over the course of a few years. i just have too many projects cooking at once to completely finish any one of them over a relatively short period of time. not to mention that i constantly get drafted into helping over a dozen friends and family with their projects and as a result i barely have time for my own.

edit: wow i just realized that came out kinda like a rant. i DO feel better now tho LOL

i wish i could get laid off again for about 3 or 4 months so i could collect unemployment and get caught up on everything. the only problem is that i am terrified that if that happened i wouldnt be able to get my job back or couldnt find another one that i enjoyed as much or that pays as well.
