That sucks...and this just reminded me that I will soon have to deal with all this (making sure garage cars are operational for working on other cars) as soon as we pick up that '58 that Tasha won.

owning a fleet sucks. im going to have to get a storage unit to put the GTO in so i can move the mustang in the garage do do teh engine/trans pull so im not working in the driveway uncovered.

get a whiteboard. its handy for keeping a list of things that need attention.

Nope never got any of your txt Corndog. I bet you still have my old Houston number (281). When I quit Baker and went to work at TTS I got a new phone (OKC - 405 number).

After a lot of talking about it with Sara, she encouraged me to buy the turbo or the converter for it so i could get back to enjoying my hobby and having fun. i love that woman. so since VS racing was running the SEMA sale last week and the denmah package with the cast 7875 was on sale for 886 shipped to my house...








doing it on stock converter wont be ideal at all but this gives me a good bit of work to do as well as making an ass ton of power more than now which = fun.

cars mostly torn apart right now as i was working on pulling the motor out of it about a month ago and a i sprained a pec muscle breaking a bolt loose underneath it. just an odd angle pulling on it and i felt a nice pop in my chest. im back to normal now and hopefully the weather cooperates this weekend i should be able to pull the motor out and replace the oil pan gasket and rear main and slam it back in. what sucked about the injury is i was 6 bolts away from lifting it out. thankfully a buddy was over and helped me put it back to "HOA appropriate" condition.

hopefully ill be updating this a little more frequently again. im ready to make some boost noises.

couple updates.

picked up the holley oil pan with the holiday deals + a gift card from jegs. A friend was selling a set of racestars and tires and got them for a good deal. Just moved my GTO into storage so i can get to work on the turbo setup build in the garage. was stressing me out having to spend 30-40 minutes on both sides of working on the car in teh driveway where i had to take everything back apart and then put it back together to make it HOA friendly. Storage unit was cheap and close to my house so it makes sense as a place to move some stuff i dont use all the time offsite.
