i get attached but sometimes there just not worth keeping, ive been pretty interested in the cruze lately, did you get the eco?

Because SSExi is still acting up. And I'm not ripping up another engine.

I didn't even check into the Eco version. I did look at some info on the Cruze while I was waiting. I got the LS model with the 1.8L Ecotec VVT DOHC, rated 22/35. The Eco(LT and LTZ as an option) has the 1.4L Turbocharged Ecotec VVT DOHC, rated 24/36. I also got the 6 speed automatic, but you can shift up and down manually. Even in as an automatic, it feels like it shifts like a manual.

Today I didnt do anything other than make a couple dump runs. Not fun, but pops came over and we farted around and cleaned up. Moving sucks, dump runs are worse. Had some cedars that didnt make it and cans of paint. Seems like yesterday we moved in, now we are leaving. Kind of sad.

Went through everything that I need to get taken care of on the buick.. now just trying to figure out where to start.. put some gas in also. After work took a friend to pick up her car after an alignment but not sure if they actually got to it, I looked at it to see if I could tell if they had gotten to it but couldnt really find any proof.

Two NPT plugs into the LIM, two more needed. Then I can put that on the ole motor.

Meanwhile, I drove mine..

Got a universal key for the mower (dunno how I lost it), tossed teh charger on it and filled the tires with air. Then successfully mowed the front field that was the front yard.
