Default what i've been up to since my SD departure.

yeah yeah yeah i know. i'm not on here like i used to be. sorry got better things to do than read about who has the bigger turbo( i can't believe the bickering is still going on) guess what all the people that talk sh** here take it to the track. guess what theres a Evo near by that makes 568 wheel on 93 and one that makes 760whp on 110 and a stock ECU. how about them apples?


anyways i am still making trips that me, Rally_blue, BigboyEvo, and a few others used to do. even had Eric drive down from Indiana for one of the adventures. i've been on enough mountain roads and valley runs (no canyons here) that most of you couldn't keep up on. these trips have included two state parks, a river run/camping trip, and even more to come. i've got three more state park to visit, two separate trips up and down the blue ridge parkway, tail of the dragon, snowboarding trip in WV, two amusement parks, and one trip that will call for every vehicle to be 4wd (going offroading in a big way! so no evo on this one) everyone of these involve mountain roads. my tires are done, my rotors are warped, and my brakes shoot flames. so yes i've been driving my car.


here are some pics from my drive from Cali to NC.

the owner of the mini S has more seat time racing than most of us do on the pot. He's running Star specs on that little bastard.

Well since I missed it this summer. It is a promise to hit up the dragon this summer. Hopefully the galant will be ready.

well here we are with another update for you guys. last October the GVR-4 had part of the wiring harness short out. So i had to replace the whole front section of that. while i was tearing things out i decided to try and replace as much as i could since so many things had been rigged by the PO. So I got a custom aluminium radiator with custom brackets, installed an Evo MAS, dsmchip stage 3, hallman boost controller, deleted faulty cruise control, custom battery tray with odessey battery, and a Aspec Ti shift knob for bling.

heres the harness. this section was underneath the radiator that was just laying against it since it was properly secured.

I've already got a fully built head ready to go. After i see the results of the compression and leak down test will determine whether or not I go ahead with the other block i have and build it.

yeah you do need to head up here sometime. I'm looking at taking a trip on the parkway this weekend with Eric and a few other friends. I'm got plenty of fun roads around here.
