Keep your stock subframe for me! I want a backup in case my first round with mine goes bad

Stay safe man. I'm starting a new job on the 23rd... wee bit more normal though.

Where'd you find the quaife trans?

Food service contractor or blowing some ************* up contractor?

AWR has them last I checked, if not then I will just get a 6 speed. I think they discontinued the trans actually.

Fae, here is a picture of my last kit on deployment to Iraq to give and an idea of what 'type' of contractor I am.

Preemptive welcome to here, J.

I'm sure you know the deal with being over here (I remember you posting about being a Marine), but I have to say.. don't get a sense of false security because you're a contractor. We lost two last week. :(

Sorry to hear for your loss brother, no I have no sense of false security I know how things are, I have quite a few friends down-range. I have good faith in my training and my gear...as well as MRAPS. I will keep in touch, maybe we'll run into eachother.

I was a contractor in Iraq as well, and we lost a few contractors leaving the ECP they where Brits but it was pretty sad to hear, they where a bunch of good guys we'd always sit with at the DFAC.

Good luck. Stay safe. Not sure what type of contractor you are (can't see pictures, at work) but hopefully you kill some bad guys

I did work for Triple Canopy, however, I am no longer with them on this contract...I don't wish to disclose the name of the company I am working for but either way I will still have the internet.

Good deal on still having internet. It means I can still give you **** for putting out fake dyno numbers.
