Car is home, Jet stage two is installed, good to go, car runs great, took it out on a short highway jaunt, however, it has been snowing alot lately, but the highway was dry and i can tell you, the difference is notable!
Shifts very positively now.

On a side note, my car has Command Start in it, when i was working on the car, i hit the switch for low temperature start, didnt realize it, battery was unhooked.
I got back home tonight after the gas station, parked in the garage, shut the door, went down stairs, my car started itself in the garage and ran for atleast 20 miuntes, my mom opend the door to the garage (attached garage) and a WALL of smoke billowed in.
All good now, i shut the command start off..its a good thing that car is loud.
