For future modding of exhaust..it helps if you run the engine and warm it up...then loosen all your bolts that might be questionable.

That'* what I did expecting Lash'* to be a chore..and they went well.

His was warm when it was broken apart.

We have a temporary solution to the crossover/rear mani flange in place that is holding up well from the ZillaMotorsports magic bin of fasteners. We may beef it up for the trip back to MN.

Huh......warm up the exhaust mani'* so you burn yourself trying to take them off.

It wasn't taking them out that was the problem, it was getting them back on.


I did a quick mod this morning.
Popped on a smaller pulley.

Gonna have to head back to Bill'* and retrieve my stickier tires.

NIce score on your stickies....Boosty. Now you have no excuses for dragging at the back of the pack.
13'*....13'*.....13'*

All things being equal, you had better be quicker than the Bullet this year

I'm gonna do my best to keep the lead. :P

I was just cleaning out a few odds and ends from the green cars and found a surprise in the zilla.

Last year'* test/tune timeslips from Friday night.

Yes warm the motor..not smoking hot..but enough for expansion. Similar to a mechanic using a torch to heat up a pesky bolt that doesn't want to cooperate.

As for what the issue was...uh...no one posted the actual problem..????? The secret problem is still a secret

Paul..better hurry...I think I saw them in the For Sale section

My car will get better.. still having a tough time with not helping the locals and making time for my car. It'll happen and hopefully the cards finish with me in the lead. I'd like that.

My day started out with Matt locking his keys in his truck while it was running. So we haved now mastered the art of breaking into a 94 F-250


Had a great drive down to Oregon, like always.

Bill molesting Gravenge








Zilla, SLE */C, Matt'* F-250 and Greyhare'* VW


And I now have a fuel pump that works so good I corner under 1/2 a tank of gas and the car won't shut off! And to top it off, I have working power locks! WOO-HOO!
