I think it got side tracked with a truck project, last I heard.  Maybe a winter project

Damn,I was looking forward to seeing it this fall.

flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is
the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a
loyalty to the American people."

My car is together and running. New paddle tires. New seats being built. Wastegate spring set at 13 psi, and waiting for my turn on Chris's dyno.  It will be in July sometime. He is extremely busy. I have ran the motor and changed oil once already.  DS, I bought the Lucas oil additive for engine break in on the dyno. I installed 2 new cv's and boots. Cleaned, inspected, and regreased others. They all appeared just fine, even after all the use. My new air filter system is almost done. At this rate, my buggy is going to weigh as much as a frickin SxS! Do you have your head and manifold off for repairs? I hope you kicked that illness completely by now.
