      After work I started my next little project. Shaving my engine cover. My plan as of now (changes daily) is to have the cover sprayed the color of my wheels once I'm finished shaving them.

      I'm covering the holes with fiberglass and then sanding it smooth. I'll see how that works out once I wake back up.

      I didnt see it until now lol. You can only have one emission item in NJ as not ready or unsupported. Since you already have an O2 sensor delete what you can do is put a resistor for the SAI and enrich the start up fuel so it heats the cat faster and the ECU thinks the SAI is there or I can delete the SAI for you and you run your rear O2 senaor with a spacer. Unless you find a friendly shop

      Wow i shouldn't have said all that on a public forum lol.

      Edit: Im not soliciting or trying to sell anything here.

      Gonzzz do you do any TDI ECU work? Not really a maintenance question, and certainly not paramount...

      So, I'm leaving the movies with my girlfriend, (saw Planet of the Apes. it was awesome) and I'm leaving the parking lot and I see a "Paramount Towing Services" truck. First thing that comes to mind is, "Well, if their maintenance really was Paramount, they wouldn't have had to call Paramount huh? ...........Man, Ant would be so proud of me." then i laughed and realized I was really lame and that when I got home to tell you this pointless story, I would realize that it is pointless. So, I am very sorry for telling you that story.

      Nice, thanks! Looks like it resists pretty well. A bit of smoldering from the backing stuff maybe?

      But also consider how that flame has a much lower temp than the turbo and exhaust gases. If I were to keep the flame on the initial spot it would have continued. I dunno. Not my problem anymore I guess since I dont have it anymore. In lieu I have a fire extinguisher now.

      Yep. My buddy said its pretty nice in the winter since you don't have to run the heat as much. I haven't noticed any significant difference.

      Yeah it is. I took it for a short drive around the parking lot and it ran smoother than my car. When I told my girlfriend of my intentions she became pretty aggravated that I'm wasting more money on cars. I've decided not to buy the car unless I sold my motorcycle. Anyone looking to buy a Harley?
