Figures too how the forcast went from sunny and nice to pissing rain within the last 2 days.

ha ha ha...you bastard!! I was wondering when you might chime in!

I will make it there....rain or shine! How do you turn on the wipers again?

I'm up to a whopping 1850 miles. So basically I will be putting about 6 months worth of milage on my car tomorrow!

How come your not coming up? Any more scratches I need to buff out?

The Final 4 is tomorrow and starts at 3. I'll need to sleep in to prepare myself for the drinking/eating that comes along with that.

No more scratches that I am aware of

Also, turns out my old baseball coach bought a bimmer and is as big of a detailing guru as you (well close anyways... don't think he has the "CarDust Blower 2000"). I should hook you guys up for a detailing day

"Super Saturday"!! you got that right. I'll be on the read to Ocean Shores, busting my ass trying to get there before tip off. I was supposed to leave with my wife tonight. Already catching a bit of hell for that one.

BTW...the "Cardust Blower 2000" is a must for any real detail enthusiasts.

In Jeff's (carb con) defense my car was only the 2nd 335 to run on their new dynojet, and the 1st step. I'm sure they probably are very good at it by now.
Yeah, you don't have a clue...John dynos all the cars.

I only have a hard copy of the report and am too lazy to scan it or call Carb Connection for the soft copy of the runfile.

My best was 297HP/320TQ with the Juicybox part deux.

Wow...Chris I just noticed your numbers...I know you were expecting more. I was too, but mine were fair. I'm going to at least ramp up from 90% torque settings to 93%. I've got 300 miles on 90% now...so it's time.

actually, i'm pretty happy with my numbers. i am running at 92.5%. remember that my car is awd, so i have a little higher drivetrain losses, but not nearly as high as i expected. i only made a few hp less than rwd cars, so i think that is pretty impressive.

...on the way home he ran against a copper colored neon srt4 (I-405 near 522 interchange)....looks totally stock. It walked him!

The neon must have had a boost controller or something....but when he pass the 350z on my right hand side I think the driver of the neon saw me laugh my ass off!I just could not stop laughing!I felt bad for him but at least he sounded good losing!


But get this....he was pretty impressed with how the cars ran on the dyno and now he's looking to sell his car and get a 335
