A quick hand wax made this thing pop. Exhaust tips are off so I can polish them. I haven't done much else to this car yet. I haven't even driven it more than 50 miles since I picked it up.

Well, I decided to join the ranks of the pulley swappers. I got the old 3.8 pulley off and installed the modular system from zzp(3.4). Now I'm working on porting the */c and doing some intake manifold mods. Plan on starting to tear into the car (remove the old */c and intake) either tomorrow or Thursday and finish putting it together next week (that includes some transmission work). Then it'* off for a custom tune.

you say you got those at home depot? is there still a coupon?




those condos and appt'* you "own" are a ploy of the developers to make more than than if they own any apartments, you cant do what you want with it and you have to pay for your services the same.

I agree Justin.
You are always better to own ur own home over strata fees etc suck.
I suppose though when u are super rich having a place where there is no grass to cut and all the facilities, could be relaxing and secure, especially when your Lambo is in the room.
Re the LED bulbs the outdoor flood came from home depot. The A19 LED house bulbs came from London Drugs here, and they had a $5 off promotion, probably sponsored with manufacturer to reduce costs, and to sell a ton of them until months end.
Going back for more today as I want all incandescent bulbs gone now. Anything where I dont have a dimmer, is also being replaced with CFL in day white today.
I have also heard that many electric companies offer credits back when you go LED, SO keep your bills, inquire and look for the promo deals and ask for them when you are ready to go totally green.
