our checklist would be something like:

oil
coolant
fingers
kittens
throttle body screws...

I've got a hard hat and goggles, no sweat.

I'm not going to be able to make it :( I thought I was going to have time to fix my leaking wastegate-downpipe connection and my exhaust leak today but work killed me. I had the afternoon off and tonight I was already booked :( I'm sad to miss this meet but my car is actually running an open wastegate pipe now which is kinda lame. :(:(:( Please pet the turboes for me.
