    Another small update but feels like a mountain to me. First thing is first, battery back in the box, bolted down, with carpet under it.

    Gonna add some carpet over the trans tunnel and wheel tubs soon. That dont win races so its on the backburner ATM. Got the car on the ground and had no brake assist. Only thing i could figure is the booster was out which made no sense. Bought one online, swapped it out and now i have power assist again. Didnt figure out what went wrong with the original though.......

    Waxed the wheels for easy cleaning.

    Looks odd with 15s and 18s but whatever. MSD 2step on the way and I think Im gonna add a 110v outlet for laptop charging for tuning.

    Some HPTuners fuckery going on today. The booster is hooked to the manifold (for vacuum) and the idle has been funky. New booster, time to get the idle dialed in. That's done. Previously, it would foot brake to about 3k and 0 psi and the tires would go up after that. Started reducing timing and the RPMs got way up there, so did the boost. I did this in the garage. I'm impressed with what it can do on the foot brake, 10 psi is gonna make a heck of a launch. More foot brake tuning when the 2step gets here.



    Purple MAP is accurate.

    Good to have friends in low places. She is "legal" again for tuning. Just need to put this on the windshield.

    2step is here......but do i need it?

    Hit near 15psi at 4200+ rpm on the foot brake in the garage. This seems insane to me, and I have 7lb springs in the gates so how, why? I'm confident i could get that even higher. I have so many questions at this point.....are the gates opening, will i be looking at the sky on launch, did i just waste $250 on a 2step? The future looks exciting.

    110v inverter on the way to aid my laptop battery while tuning.

    Took the old lady out for a $100 outback lunch. Birthday lunch and she deserves it, a truly good woman.

    Bought an ebay gt45, no clue why, maybe we will put it on the yukon tow bitch.

    The guy I sold my old turbo kit to crushed the cold side pipe. So we are doing him a solid and fixing it for him.

    Got hptuners, obd2, and 110v outlet on the passenger side. Actually took it out today and remembered the shocks were loose after I thought the rear end was gonna fall out of the car. But she went down the road and made it back home under her own power. I call that a win. Wrapped the 110v in padding cause I'm just gonna put it under the carpet when not in use.
