Actually no im not. Since I started leaning everything out more, I turned it down as the power was coming on way stronger because of it.

Spun a rod bearing. More like pancaked it. According to many, the bearing clearance was too tight and it sure looked it not to mention teh crankshaft turned purple with heat

The car is running great! Upon downshifts, it back fires like shot gun loud at times and spits fire . ITs really amusing when i pass bikers and unsuspecting pedestrians...especially in the ghetto neighborhoods lol. Heres some baby pops from the other day
