    FINALLY got the cold air kit I have been waiting on. Here are some pics. Also last Saturday I had a guy come to my house to tune it.....only to find out that my $1,700 , 10,000 mile tranny was junk. The good news is the junkyard that I bought it from gave me another one with 40,000 miles on it and told me to keep the first one. Now I have to spend the next couple days under the car changing it....I'm getting too old for this s$#t...lol

    Loking good. What a PITA about the tranny. But atleast they made good on it. I guess you could look at getting to keep the old one as payment for your troubles. Never know when it might come in handy.

    Well it is official....car is at the tuner for the final time. I will be picking it up later today. All I need to do is bleed the rear brakes one final time, tighten all the exhaust clamps (there is a small exhaust leak), and give her a long needed detailing. I will try to get a sound clip put on here this weekend.

    WOW!!!! I picked up the car at the tuner yesterday around 3 pm and all I can say is wow!! He definitely brought it to life. This motor pulls hard. It will light the tires in 1st, 2nd and bark them in 3rd without even trying. I am impressed...now for a few final items and then spend the summer enjoying it.
