Haha you were pretty good for the most part. It wasn't that bad, you were just kinda moving back and forth in b/t your lane and ventured into the other lane once or twice. You scared the shit out of me when you swerved to avoid that little dip near your place...did you hear me honk? Anyways all is good

Not cool on my part... I should have just gone home after my work HH. I really appreciate it Michael. That dip in the left lane always gets people with stiff or lowered suspensions so I've made a habit of jutting around it quickly.

All good man you made it home that's what matters.

So I've been reading and I didn't know this but the manual says we're supposed to change our spark plugs at 45k intervals...and I think people that are tuned change it more along the lines of around 20k. Ordered 6 new plugs today.

Cheapest place I found for plugs...http://www.autohausaz.com/

Thats where I got mine. They ship pretty quickly.
I changed them out last week. It took me about 90 minutes, however, I could do it in 45 minutes next time.

Did you also buy the socket or do you have one at home that will work? I thought I read somewhere that the plugs use a 12-point socket but some generic sockets will work too.

I haven't bought the socket yet...it's $25 from ECS and I'm being cheap so I'm trying to think of other ways to obtain one They say a 12 point will work, just need a retractable magnet to get the spark plug out...which I have.

Squirrel did you buy the tool?

So I was looking up the dyno at Autoscope...and they actually have a side by side dyno so they could load 2 cars in. Anyone know Steve or Carson or any of those guys enough to see if they would set up a dyno day?

Edit: Just talked to some guy on the online chat thing and he said to talk to Carson @ Park Cities. Normal price is $150/hr for 3 runs, $100 an hr after that...but it's a mustang dyno

Nice ECarone, saw it there a few weeks ago with about 5 335's. I guess they were all gone or not what you were looking for. I may be interested in some parts as well if the other people with dibs back out.

I know both Steve and Carson. They are great guys. If you want me to try to negotiate a better deal I can probably swing something.

X2, they are great guys. I'll be at MSR with them tomorrow. Maybe we can double team them to get the best deal.

sorry rotors stayed on the car. The G feels nice not as quick as my car of course but its quick. Sounds sooooo sexy with the intake and exhaust. And the peddle shifters feel nice.
