I take it that it's a casualty of last week's weather and subsequent power outages? Sorry that happened to you, and to all the good folks down there.

Finished installing my MaxJax lift and broke it in by replacing the right front radiator fan.

Yes. More cold than power, as I have a generator. That turned out to be one of four leaks, all in places that should not have leaked. All fixed now. Almost. Thanks! Hoping its not a twice in a lifetime event.

I hope the rods don't "work out" of the block. LOL

But hey I paid $100 for this block. Whats another $100 if the gapatizer pushes a piston out the bottom.

I started the sticker bombing process on the old deck lid. The Z top hatch will be kept clean though.

I finally broke down and bought the GT3 console delete kit and installed it. I'll miss the 2 storage cubbies I had, but hope my right leg appreciates the extra room!

LOL. My friend made that sticker for me per my request. It really helps the statement to have a lot of supercharged blow by oil coming out of your exhaust.

Thanks, it gives the pantera kinda feel to the car. It does murder the slick Z top lines, but its worth it cause I can sit in traffic all day and not worry about under hood temps... cause what hood. LOL

Thanks, getting a video is a challenge for two reasons.

One I haven't used my youtube account in over 15 years; recovery is being difficult.

Two Charleston, SC is not known for good roads. Strait and flat, nothing cool or daring. Fortunately I'm going to DGRR this year (without a rotary powered car this time) and I should get some good wife supplied footage. The roads in NC&TN are great for turbocharged cars, lets hope supercharged cars do well too.
