Silver stuff is reflectex from Lowe'*/Home Depot.

And very expensive aluminum tape. Taylor was very pleased with the intake performance this morning. I'll post a vid and pic of that later.

Water pump took Matt about an hour taking his time.

The 95SE and 00SSEi are VERY close to finished. I just finished fabricating a 316 Stainless blockoff plate for the GenV. Probably shouldn't have used 1/4" thick stock, it took awhile.

Ah yes the drive by wire block off plate. I fabbed mine from aluminum. Much easier.

Where is O'Neil tapping into for the PCV vent line? Is that what the threaded hole in the throttle body adapter is for?

He had a TB adapter already, has the line. He had a N* and TB adapter before.

95SE is purring like a good little kitten. Warming up for an oil change in the garage, still blocked by BoneEvil. BoneEvil is about 30 minutes from key on. Pmom is putting on the Bonneville sill plates.

Yes, being N/A, did he lose any bottom end torque. Need to see the burnout.

There was a burnout. That 95SE is pretty strong. You won't lose any noticable bottom end, but you'll gain some midrange and throttle snap.

He felt it, but it never got to temp, and the PCM had to learn it, so he'll give it time and reserve judgement for now.

Both cars are purring now, BoneEvil is getting an oil change. We got delayed on it due to broken vac lines and fittings. There was a burnout on that one too.

One wheel? GTP.

WENDY just did a burnout in the 2k! Way to go girl! Matt and Wendy just left in the 2k and the 95, both running great. BoneEvil is done. Running GREAT also.

We'll get final pics and vids up later.

Damn good meet. 4 cars under the knife, all doing great. Taylor should be home by now, so I'll send him his socket set he left behind.

Some notes before the day'* whorage:

1. Pdad is still the wrench I know. Hasn't faded in the 2 months since I've seen him.
2. Pmom is as nosy and organized as ever. She made a futile attempt at keeping me in line.
3. Matt and his ability and comfort level under the hood still amaze me. Smooth and calculated. The good news is we saved that 95 from the wrecker this weekend. The LIM gaskets and UIM were BOTH gone.
4. Taylor was a surprise. Always helping, exhuberant, and totally capable. This guy did his OWN top end a couple weeks ago with only help from here.
5. Wendy is like my sisters (who are all older than me) and I had FUN messing with her again. She didn't let us down with the 'exit' burnout, either. Bo has a new best friend.

On to the day'* pics starting with Taylor last night. Caught him sleeping and had some fun.
