I still have all my PM's going back to the beginning of March, nothing from you. No emails either.

No bid deal. BEGI is good for you.

Will be watching the 'for sale' forum.

Looking forward to a good deal on the sway bars and shock mounts.

I still got an oil cooler. Ignore me like normal.

And what the hell one day you're buying a built engine, now you're building one? Or you already buy and sell the one you bought?

AEM, I've never been a fan of the haltec software. the aem is also more popular so the odds of finding a base map are better.
