I wound her up to the death defying base speed limit of 30mph.

But it was ok, because that still sounds pretty nice in first gear.

Not to mention my Bilstein PSS9s came in the mail today and I couldn't carry them back on my mountain bike. Woot!

Tried to put racing beat springs and sways on. Got rear springs in. Corrored bolts on rear sway will need to be cut off. Then front strut didn't want to come out. Got front sway almost on. Just have one more bracket.

started Fidanza/ACT swap...prep dash for three delfi gauges and consumed some hardy Colorado micro brews.....unfortunately the brews are starting to kick in and I've postponed my ongoing project into the weekend, plans for more CMB's are in the works as time permits.

I tried to remove the accordion tube 4 times but I never seem to be able to remove the airbox from the grommets. Ended up wiping the engine compartment...sigh

Went for a beer run with my brother in-law. It was the first time he'd seen it. When we hit 9K RPM, he was like, Woh.

Took my primary and secondary injectors out to send them off to be cleaned and benchmarked. What a huge pain it is to get to them...
