    Well the HKS EVC is scheduled to be delivered tomorrow! I'm stoked.

    A little update on the engine... well there is no update. I've been trying to get a hold of the builder at Wagamon Bros. and he seems to be a busy guy. Hopefully I get a hold of him tomorrow as I want to finalize my pistons he was going to look into CP, Wisceo and Diamond Racing to see what setup he liked better and provide me with a recommendation. He still thinks CP is the way to go, but he said he'd see what was up.

    The cold weather has kind of slowed me down with wanted to go out in the garage and work on the car. I need to get myself a set of those wheel dollies so I can swing the car around in my garage and give myself a little more room and then I'll fire up the trusty propane torpedo heater.

    The last thing I need to do is put insurance back on the tour and drive it up to the paint shops and get a final quote for the work. I'm hoping to do that this Friday weather permitting.

    Keeping it T-red for sure. As for the stripes not yet... I have something in the works though. Not going to drop the bomb here quite yet until I see some quotes back, but if it happens everyone will want in

    Well HKS EVC 6 is here. Everything is in good order. Can't wait to install the thing. I need to try and get ahold of the Easy Writer software for it so I can map the boost levels on my laptop and upload it to the EVC.

    Finally got a hold of Thad, my builder at Wagamon Brothers. He says that everything cleaned up fantastic. They honed out the block and it sitting at the high end of the normal tolerance for the 3L cylinder bore. He has quote inquiries out to Diamond Racing, CP, and Wiseco... however he has not heard back from them. I guess there is a big show this week for piston manufactures so they have been slow getting back to him. He's hoping Monday he gets a little more info.

    Until then I'm letting my car sit in the garage with all the snow outside. I need to figure out how I can manuver this thing in the garage when I start to work on it. I'm thinking it may be in my best interest to invest in some of those wheel dollies.

    Do it. It'll be totally worth it in the end. Makes it super easy to move the car!

    PRI is going on in Florida, largest high performance show of the year.

    I will be interested in how this plays out myself. I want to do one so let us know how it turns out.

    I already have one of those torpedo style propane heaters... which really warms out that whole garage. I'm just thinking I'm going to be a little short on space to get any real work done. I think I'm going to pull the front bumper, fenders, and support. Then I need to test fit the piping and make some markups on them to send them back to Joey for some adjustments for the recirulating valve installation. Once this is finished I'll start prepping the motor and then one weekend (hopefully a warmer one I'll have the car hanging out the garage to give me enough room to pull the engine.

    Well Christmas came a little early. I picked out and ordered one of my gifts. Should go nicely with the DIS-4 I picked up from TRicker.

    Do those actually do anything different then stock? besides yellow caps?

    I can't imagine they do...
