A couple of noted changes to my goat. I posted this elsewhere but I have noticed that the exhaust sound is noticeably louder now. Not "muffler is gone" loud but definietly louder. I used to turn down the radio to listen to it (a lot!!). At around 500 miles I noticed that even with the radio on quite high (L'il GTO was playing) I was hearing it. Then I noticed this morning with about 1100 miles on it and after a nice sunny Sunday drive it feels looser. It is more responsive with not as much hestation. (not that there was a lot to begin with, just less) I am looking forward to the 5000 mile mark which is when these puppies are supposed to be broken in. On a related note I have also noticed that empty onramps are my new personal speedway.

I've noticed now as I approach 1000 miles the car has a subtle vibration at idle, just enough to make everything shake just a little. Good God I love it!! It's like the powerplant wants to leap out of the engine bay and eat everything it touches. Don't get me wrong it's not a bad thing! It smooths out after a minute but ooooh it's cool!!

2 things..

1. I have started to get acousted by total strangers more often who want to see the engine or hear the car...even chased down the block by a guy!

2. Tails needs to get back to his early form and drink more! Next thing you know he will begin to challenge the kids on the block to race him with their red ryder wagons and on the onramp none the less!!

It gives a whole new meaning to:
Turn it on.
Wind it up.
Blow it out.
