Moved my Jeep and pulled the exofish out of the garage. Just waiting on Gabby to get home and we'll head down.

Bummer, I would have gone but I was flying back from Taiwan. Hopefully there is another South Bay meet soon now that I have the new MS box and lots of questions.

Southbay NCR meet is this Wednesday again and the weather is suppose to be good. I need to fix a fuel line issue but I intend on going (but, road to hell and all that).

Also I'm debating whether or not I care to do pre/post dyno pulls before installing the MS or turbo. Turbo hardware should be here soon, so I should get moving if it's going to happen .

Also, NCRC posted up their track day schedule. I should really sign up

I wouldn't bother doing a dyno pull with the stock ECU -- it'll make 110-120 hp, and you really don't care.

Doing it with the MS installed is potentially interesting, if you want some dyno tuning practice without the turbo installed.

Yes, NCR Wednesday, I'll be there.

Probably won't, for the same reason I didn't go last time. Not sure I want to drive an hour to Campbell in the Miata so I can hang out for an hour, not drink, and drive home an hour in the Miata so I can be home by a reasonable hour (10 in this case) :P

And now for a story told through pictures!















I should really get a boring bar, seeing as I already have a tool post mount for one.

Also I put the fuel line back on that had popped off and replaced the regular hose clamp with a fuel injection clamp. Started right up. I need to order a push lock to AN adapter...

I was waiting for pics of the lake of fuel in your driveway

Nice. That means we can make mating v-bans for the o-ring ones that Abe uses. Those things are boss.

Careful when welding those. I did like an inch at a time, 1 on each side. then let it cool for 5-10 minutes. It definitely still warped a little bit, but is still totally useable/leak free.

Cruising home on the freeway, in the slow lane doing 65 and I look over to see who's pacing me in the next lane, and whad'ya know, CHP...

Fortunately they just paced for a bit more and then sped off. The car is legal enough that all they could do is give me a fix-it ticket, but it still unnerves me.

He probably just thought it was cool and wanted to look at it.

Did you have your helmet on? He was probably trying to figure out if you are the Stig's American cousin.

Great to see you and all of rest of the crew from NCR last night.

"those" as in the v-bands with grooves for alignment/sealing or "those" as in v-bands in general? I was pretty careful on G's exhaust and think I got away with minimal warping
