This is horrible. Hopefully posting this will relieve me of some of my giddyness...but these came in the mail today...and I'm stuck at the office for the next 3 1/2 hours...

I can't wait to get home! My first real mod! (that I'VE done to the car)

Oh, look at those babies! I was thinking of getting a set myself.
I just replaced my RH one (thanks Boosty) that had a bad crack in it. Not sure what my wife would think if I bought more!

BTW: Your avatar, are you DJ'ing?

The mod bug DOES have me, it'* kinda nice though. After doing those, I think it'll be a nice night to have a few beers...pull my TB off, clean that out...maybe pull my fender and pop a few dents...i mean, why not? I have nowhere to be haha.

And yes, I'm DJing in the avatar...it'* something I do part-time for fun...usually every Sat. or every other Sat. at a bar near Lansing...good times (sometimes)

Here'* the results! After about 5 hours, I got the intake all cleaned out, my clear corners on, and seafoamed it! It took longer than it should have due to those [email protected] IAC screws both snapping off, had to tap & die the heck out of it, but I made it work.

What? I can only get it halfway in?

Clear Corners are a nice touch , now throw some Silverstar marker lights up front . That TB is so clean I would eat out of it, she'll be a little happier now. BTW, l Iike your engine cover


Your car make me miss my '99 SE :(
