Default WOW cars finally running...

I really dont know how to say it but this is fucked...i was waiting for my buddies to come tonight so i wanted to tinker with the car a little because i finally got a laptop.

Ok so i go in try to start look for crank pluses have them, i have everything i didn't know why it wouldn't start, so for the heck of it i reloaded the base map, and wtf happens my car fires right up wtf...im just so happy. But it wont rev past 4K or starts to backfire i believe it does because the timing is not set yet. But tn sweetmeatz from the forums coming over to help me out so hopefully i will get a video tn, maybe going up and down the street maybe not, it was all dry and clean yesterday and i wake up this morning and the road is full of snow...so if my roads clean il get one if not then your going to have to wait.

And i have more good news, im getting a turbo soon possibly. Since im co-oping at Muffler Man, the guys over there are going to help me build a manifold and a downpipe, all i need is a turbo right now, i dont know what kind some people here have the china chargers? Mark? I just want one to make about 14psi, good enough for 250hp, and then il make up a DIY intercooler, and im for sure getting a tial BOV love the sound. Thats it for now

if you like your engine get the intercooler before you try 14 PSI.
