It'll seriously only take me 5 minutes to "finish" it. Paul did it 99% of the way. There's just a small .5 inch burr that needs to be removed.

I think I am a 80% NO for this event. I still didn't get my MS running, but I have 5 days yet. Thursday or Friday I am goin to this guy about 20 minutes away from me who has a very well known rotary shop, and he has experience with MS and EMS-Pro. So, we'll see what happens. He'll probably get frustrated with it like everyone else, and convince me to buy a Microtech. I guess we'll see what happens.

If the car is driveable you can try meeting up with me. I may be available Wednesday and/or Thursday. I don't want to drive to Schuylkill county though

I plugged the stock computer in and it starts up. I disconnected the wastegate actuator arm and rigged a piece of wire to hold the wastegate open. I can drive the car, but I didn't road test it all over the place yet. I think it will be fine, I could meet up with you. I live just over the Schuylkill / Berks county line. What would be a meeting point for us?

I am willing to drive about an hour. That gets me to almost the New Hope area if I go straight west. Ideally we would need a place to do it instead of just a random parking lot. If need be we can do it there though.

It's ridiculous driving through there. Always a bunch of Miatas parked along River Rd.

******* make no excuses. That's what I'm talking about. Can't believe some of the more local-er people don't come.

What the ****? It's raining. Where'd you get the traction to do that? Are you swapping a trans in the rain? That's hardcore.
