The financial barrier rules all.

Next winter won't see any major changes to this car unless I win the lottery, or don't hit 13'*.

Finished peeling the injectors this morning just before heading out the door. These were re-coated last night:

Holy crap. Its all just so shiny and perfect. And that blower holy CRAP that is slick. But I'm just wondering if that coarse surface will hold fine bits of road dirt and dust, possibly be hard to clean later? Or maybe its not that coarse, maybe its just me. No glasses on right now.

John...That car doesn't get driven enough to find dirt. And if it did...Wren would go out and clean it spotlessly.

Similarly..I've plans to keep my engine bay clean for quite some time as well.

Always a bonus when something looks as good as it runs.

Very nice work on the entire package, Mr. Z

Bill, this is totally awesome. I can't wait to see it run. You have made a lot of progress since I was up there.

Matt, if I recall, there was a bare block and 6 pistons under the hood when you were here.

I meant if anyone else used it under normal conditions. That is if bill approves it for long term reliability.
