theory question for you guys, i have the gauge from the prosport wideband that crapped out (the controller not the gauge). anyway i was thinking the db gauge uses analog output and i believe the prosport did as well. so in theory i could use the prosport gauge face with the lc-1 controller right?

I'm expecting a similar box from Greece, but the pics are for my eyes only so far. I nearly pissed myself like an over-excited dog

There appears to be no air in the cooling system of my daily, good hoses, haven't checked the thermostat...what are the chances a stock 1.6 radiator with 200k miles just can't cut it in 106*f ambient air? I'm trying not to spend money here but I can't get the car under 230*f in cruise or parked.

CX Racing or Haste? The Haste claims to be a 3-row, not sure about the CX.

They're both going. The radiator is not ducted, but that's not going to help me in traffic.

---- it, I just ordered the CX radiator. I assume it's good insurance since I'm running the old-*** radiator from my 1.6 car in there and I'd hate to be stranded between Dallas and Houston due to an old, plastic tank.

found torn vacuum line in supra that feeds wastegate. Fixed it, now I have boost sag. Apparently I was running almost all the boost until now, guess there was enough silicone on the line that it opened the wastegate at a stable 18psi, scares me to think what would have happened if it ripped off completely at full boost, magically closing my wastegate. Time to get boost feed from manifold instead of turbo itself, dropping from a healthy tuned 18psi and maxing at 10 while sagging to 7 sucks. I need to leave this garage and go to sleep... or play games.


Also, finally finished rebuilding BP head, now I just need to stop being lazy and install the ****** so i can go ghey again.

Just came to a realization. There are no funny female comedians. I'm trying to figure out what this says about women, or about men (or me).

Dude, you and I touched wieners that night. Frankly, I'm little upset that you're not seeing through my sarcasm these days. Don't forget that I'm the guy who ran a gay bar for a couple years. I've been to the Castro, I've hung out in the bars, I've laughed at the trannies and dudes riding unicycles wearing jock-straps...I went looking for love, I found a new kind of kink.
