      Inspired of course by various threads in other forums. Not everything requires a "build" thread so post your hard work. Whether it's just a simple go fast sticker or progress on your project post with pride. Of course pics are optional but how else can you show off that new part.

      Boosted one hard, ruined a mustang 5.0's day. Towed the boat to chatfield with another and then bounced my way into Denver for the night in the other

      Had to fix my shift cable bolt in the middle of traffic after it got stuck in third gear. Very embarassing.

      Cut a bigger access hole to get to the captive nut with a broken weld. The rear control arm mount. I picked up a factory floor plug to fill the new hole. I haven't decided if Im going re-weld the nut, or replace it with a new nylock nut.

      Did a few things today.
      *Changed out my noisey water pump.
      *Installed some TTT aluminum knock sensor bushings.
      *Installed my LC-1, did a few WOT runs and adjusted the AFR.
      *Adjusted my idle mixture.

      The 50mm intake really likes the extra fuel.
