Finally!!!

It took me four years and a-lot of work, but I finally got the ZETEC guys to shut up about my SPI. Yes, I got ragged on, but at the show I did a few 7200rpm ricer blasts past the dealership at WAY over the speed limit. FINALLY SOME RESPECT!! In an autotragic at that!

On the other hand, it appears that 36 pushing 37 it akin to farting dust so I may be purchasing a Lincoln very soon. I am Mr. Geritol.....

I feel old, does that count? =)

I am actually working on a turbo kit myself, well i've been talking with Jeffescortlx from fj, he live just like 10 minutes north of me and hopfully if my tax returns go the way I want them too, I'll be a SPI-T this spring, and this winter I'll have the head work and valve train work done.

Want to know the kicker? Just yesterday I found my elusive intake leak and I had an intermittent spark plug leak. So what I'm saying is that she would've been even better had I found and repaired those two problems. Dammit!

I never said I was the oldest ever, just at FITF! It was a hoot and I'll surely go again.

Test fitting the turbo and downpipe this weekend. if it fits I MAY just leave it on and plumb in the coolant lines and go for a spin.....WheeeeeeeeeBOOOM!!!!!!

has anyone else ever noticed that if you and a Turbo to SPI it becomes SPI-T.

"what do you drive"

"I drive spit..."
