Just got offered a new job, they want me to start Nov 21st... Do they expect me not to give my current employer 2 weeks? If so that's pretty shitty.

New places always want to you start ASAP. If you dont want to burn bridges, do the two weeks. If you dont care about the old place, just make sure you tell the new places that you really dont like not giving two weeks notice (so they wont think you will do the same to them). Or say after you gave two weeks they said why dont you just pack up your shit and let the door cornhole you on the way out.

Seems odd the don't want you to give 2 weeks. It's only fair to the company.

Had original coil packs dated 5-17-07 in the engine, new ones are from 7-15-12. Numbers 3&4 tips were slightly curved like Al's Johnson, very odd....... For the coil packs that is. But nows she's purring pretty just wondering when I should do the thermostat and pump.

If you have the cash on hand and like the idea of just paying for it over time as you like the money in the bank (thats how I am) and you're not going to need a credit check in the next 16 months, yes.

That being said, I think the single is a waste of cash unless you plan on tracking it in some way to really enjoy the potential. The tuned 911 was only about 450whp in its useful range and struggled with traction under anything legal in our state. The idea of 650 whp through RWD sounds crazy. But I think of my car as a DD. And the singles going to cost you what? $11.5k for the kit including LSD and half shalfs. Add $4k to install of everything?

Personally, I want to push our cars to their limit with the least amount of costs. I feel 450 whp is about max for safety to the power train before you need to reinforce. Its what I am aiming for and its the power level that will leave me not wanting more.

Sorry, the 11.5k is without the LSD, i had just the clutch cost in there. So what, add another $3k for an LSD installed? Thats in the $15k+ range.
