Still not available, their testing this weekend as I understand it.

My lsd is the updated gen 2 with the problems taken care of, so I feel confident it will last.

The intense goodies were just over 3k including fwi kit and shipping. convert to cdn=$3750
I still have to have it rebuilt at a tranny shop so another $1200 there.
Be around $5k when all is said and done.

The trunk is all loaded with parts and I remembered the camera. About 100 miles to the city, I should be there by opening time

Dear Sir,

Please to post video upon completion of this quest. For as of late I have only fantasized as to what it would be like to be thrown back into my seat when shifting gears, to hear the tires screach and to get thuroughly aroused as the speedometer'* needle rises ever so gently to 90. Lord have mercy I shal never walk again! Amen amen I say to you.

series two, woot. woot.

I picked the car up today from the shop
I sure love the 3500 stall and lsd, shoots off hard and strong.

The former price maybe misleading.
Parts $2000
core $435
shipping $200
Labour $900
Total $3535
Take back the core and its $3100 (us dollars) or $3920 cdn.
Now if you look at its not so bad, consider the best deal I could get here was $1600 for a used tranny with 62000 miles on it?
