Looks like all of us won't be able to hit it until next season. Only a few more weeks left of test and tune, and I still gotta gather money for drag radials and a tune for my car (will be putting in headers, y-pipe/exhaust, ls6 intake, and fabricated 9" rear in this weekend). Jason and Josh should be done just as the track closes. There's a certain GTO and G8 GT that still need to make some passes though!

Jason, does the intake pipe just point straight down with a filter on the end of it? Could you post a pic of how it terminates? I've been thinking about doing something similar.

All my was do to me making more work. You know while this is apart, I should do this as well.

A lot of paint work and body work on some custom stuff has set me back. Today the wiring gets started and some bracket making.

Its it ok under certain situations or is it always stumbling?

So what you end up taking back apart and decide to redo? There's a couple of small things I'm thinking of doing with the car since it will be up in the air for a few weeks. That undercarriage is gross and I got like 5 cans of degreaser at the house, and a scrub brush. May do some extra powder coating to things like the TB and maf housing.

Smooth the area were the wipers went
Smoothed the Rad cover
Fixed the wing that got cracked
Redid the front bumper
All got painted by Jimmy

Painted the grills. Painted all the areas under the hood that turned after using POR and painted the under side of the hood./

About to finish the wiring under the rad cover and Josh may come over to help line up the panels
