OUCH! I had no idea it was that bad for ya. Don't push it too hard, I can only imagine how hard it is to take a break when you're committed to a cause like that though.

Speaking of screws and bolts............


....thought that occurred to me on the way to work this morning:

Should the Zilla come up to idle and driving as expected, I have a fully rebuilt, ported, and polished Gen3 supercharger with less than 3k miles on it. I also have a matching ported an polished non-walled LIM.

The SLE needs a new coupler, a nd certainly needs new LIM gaskets by now (it has more miles than the SSEi).












Just a few screws and bolts, right?

A little modding couldn't hurt the SLEeper. With a smaller pulley you could get to work faster in the mornings!

Didn't you say you wouldn't be modding the SLE other than the air intake?

still hoping you'll send me the extra ported LIM

Again it falls down to this question...

Which one do I take to work? The Green one or the green one?

I know stock-for-stock, the 95 was quicker than echo at WCBF 06. But Bob'* done a little work since then.

I'll get a couple pics up later today. I didn't do much on the car last night.
