For active duty, mechanical engineer, Air Force flight engineers only:
$25 on the manifold and $50 on the turbo.

If you flew an A-10 spraying depleted uranium that would give you a HUGE discount but that one will do. Since you are a semi local Texan who I think I've bumped into at autox qualifies you for some extra special discounts. Too bad you don't need these!

I am creepy but not in that way. It's from your meet and greet post.

Buy with confidence; DVCN is a good guy. Besides, if he stiffs you, I'll go do donuts in his front yard. Oh wait, he has a fence... and a gate...

But then again I have his engine stand...

+1 for a great guy to deal with.

He actually found a way to get parts to me when I didn't want to pay shipping.

Texas AutoX network ftw.

GLWS...killer deal for someone with a grand of expendable income.

Yea, this would be nice to have i had a 1.8. I think we have met, but maybe at Harris Hill?

PS I'm not a pilot, I just play one on TV (and that's an Army flight suit besides).

What do you guys want? Stop vouching for me! It makes it harder to run a scam. Or maybe better.

See? Goes to show you how much I know but at least I can be grateful. Yes, probably at Harris Hill. Four wheel drift in 4th made me clinch a little.


Exhaust manifold sale is pending. He's confirming that it'll work on a 99 first.

Nice bird. I used to work on those (avionics) back in the early 80's, A & B models replacing the F4's. Still had General Dynamics engineers on staff since they were so new. Good memories.
