GRADUATE

This will be my 3rd Degree...: BS in BM

Oh, For the car... well Spring doesn't start in VT til June... (mud season is from March til end of May)

Mount my R rear spoiler
I might try the HD front and rear lips (my car is black so it should work ok)
Maybe put the JR exhaust back on
Get some new tires (Finding 16" Azenis is becoming a task though)
Change the coupler bearing
And maybe change the oil this year...we'll see...

BEST IDEA IN THE WHOLE THREADBEST IDEA IN THE WHOLE THREAD
From my understanding, the WI supported with MS is progressive? It syncs up with fuel injector pulses and thus ramps up as fuel flow ramps up.

I plan on using MS to run my WI... and have it all rigged up so that when the WI is empty, it forces MS to switch to a secondary non-WI map. Basically like how Joe has his setup.

Sigh.

1. JB Weld oil return
2. properly mount air scooper
3. get compressor outlet pipe replaced with proper pipe
4. retighten chassis brace bolts
5. adjust rear sway to looser setting
6. bleed brakes with car running (since they're abs)
7. get hydra ebc working properly
8. install hydramist
9. install roll bar
10. install replacement door sils and mudguard
11. pull stereo, wire up aux in for ipod
12. dyno.
13. find a block and begin build, get head checked out and have springs and/or shims installed
14. find a decent race seat
15. replace upper and lower control arms passenger rear since they were tweaked in guardrail accident
16. install more bellhousing bolts since stupid trans shop put trans back on without all the bolts.
