I think I've got about 5' of 5/8" fuel line somewhere in the garage. I'll probably just throw that on the return at the regulator and jump the pins in the diagnostic box and let the pump do the hard work for me. What could possibly go wrong?

The only remaining question is where to put the old fuel. I'm sure it'll mix well with the CA87 in the wifes Escape

Rear tank on the pickup is full, front tank I've been trying to empty so I can drop it and fix the sender so while the truck burns obscene amounts of fuel, its not an option right now.

That means wife's Escape or the WRX.

don't pick WRX.

and really, ignore these guys talking about upgrades. I just want you to fix the silly stem seals you don't keep pooping up your pretty block and possibly ingesting a bunch of oil into the cylinders.

Hey now, all I mentioned were seats and harnesses. Which is pretty reasonable for a track car with a **** ton of power.

I dunno how well ms2 handles ebc. It should work fine, but all the EBC's I've tuned were with ms3+

But you should bring ALLTHEBOOST parts anyway

What do you do as a profession for realzies?
The promise land is always hiring. It's not quite as cheap as the mid west, but we have mountains and awesome stuff.

My supervisor just traded in his Audi S4 and bought his wife a Land Rover so he is stuck driving his 2wd 91 Chevy S10 until he picks out a replacement vehicle for himself. We've decided its the perfect recipient

I'm trying to figure out if I want to leave it alone or try to swap them on on THURSDAY before MRLS. I ******* HATE removing the timing belt on the Miata, I always feel like I'm going to screw it up. I also fear making changes before trackdays.

I do seriously like that Pole Position. I would have bought one of the revised Pole Position NGs already if I could find somewhere semi local that has them in stock so I can see if I fit in them. What I REALLY want are Andy's Memoryfab S58 seats (or was it S68?) but those things have been out of production for probably a decade now. :(

Making major changes to your cars the night before track day is a tradition that you and Geoff MUST uphold.
Don't break traditions myeaw

gesso, order this: https://www.amazon.com/Hallman-PRO-R...dp/B00IFWMQLG/ It's Prime so it'll be at your place on like Wednesday, and you can order the fancy in cabin cable like Andy at some point later.

I got really drunk and seriously considered it, not necessarily in that order. I know literally nothing about Nebraska I've never lived anywhere but California my entire life.

Nebraska sucks. It is Unholy hell.
Indiana is a much nicer state.
