    I did have the injectors cleaned and serviced but I don't think it was the problem. I found out last month when I pulled the intake off to relocate the MAF sensor that the rear nuts had come off the intake causing a 8" vacuum leak.

    Well that could definitely cause some problems...Hope you are on track you deserve a fun summer of cruising for all the work you have put in.

    Struggle struggle! My car being under OEM power is probably for the best though LOL! Until then, it stares.

    Got on WS6 ws6store dot com and ordered up $50 in vinyls. Black license plate bird overlays, black trans am door badge overlays, and silver collector edition style center taillamp overlays ( '98/'02 style bird, larger trans am font ). Money well wasted for my visual pleasure.

    Next order, UMI subframe connectors, and UMI short shift stick.

    Man, I've got almost $3000 sitting all around my garage. I need to make room to get started!

    Tomorrow am I have to get my Tacoma to the "local" (hour drive) dealer to have a differential seal replaced! They nicked it doing my frame replacement! $100 in gear oil the last 3 months!

    Hopefully get the battery back in the TA! Gotta remove the Predator tune and get it bac to stock so I can sent it to Frost when done with exhaust!

    I'd love to get to the shows down there! Even a day trip would work for me! My brothers do the Bloomsburg 4x4 shows and hit Carlisle pretty often! Time and money never seem to come together for me!

    One of my issues is I like to pull my camper to these things! (The TA has no tow package!8-/)

    I will do my best to pay you guys a visit! I really NEED to check out Jeff's "herd"!

    Got in my MWC drive shaft safety loop.

    Ended up deciding to replace my lcas and pan hard bar with on car adjustable pieces since i'm going to have a completely aftermarket rear suspension setup. Currently have pieces that can be adjusted off the car but after 7 years and around 100k miles the rod ends and bushings are shot. Decided to try something new and wanted to make sure i can dial it in without having to take pieces on and off the car. The torque arm. LCA and panhard bar are all Founders pieces. The LCAs are the 3 piece bushing pieces keeps the noise down since they aren't rod ends but give more articulation then standard poly bushings. That's one of the bushings between the 2 LCAs. Was thinking of just refurbishing my UMI stuff or going with roto joints but decided the car doesn't get tracked enough and wanted stuff that's a little smoother and quieter. Plus it was cheaper just buying all new units from Founders. I can tell you the Founders stuff looks and feels just as solid as my UMI pieces. According to them they keep the items so cheap by only selling through their website. That way people don't have to pay vendor mark up costs.



    Got in my mystery box from autogeek today also. Basically I bought a $50 and $100 box and then they randomly send you products that add up to more then what i paid for. There is probably $350-400 worth of product in that picture not including the amsoil box, that was already sitting in my office or the kitten hiding behind the stool. The pinnacle black label sealant bottle retails for about $50 alone. The McKees 37 is a new brand they just launched today.

    Now I just gotta decide on my new seat cover colors. Purchase new sway bars and a torque arm relocation bracket. Then make a final decision on if I wanna do coilovers or stick with stock style Koni shocks with Strano springs. Leaning towards Viking coilovers but UMI is also about to release their own also so waiting to see them before I make a final decision. Girlfriend complains I put more thought into my car modifications then I do anything else. But after making choices i'm not happy with early on when I started modifying the car i'm doing it once and then being done.

    I hear you man. I have so many projects and nowhere near enough time to do them. Currently sitting in my parts pile corner are a 6LE carbon fiber sail panel, new dash pad, big 3 kit from innovative, powermaster 165amp alt, alt relocation kit from CBR performance, brake motive rotors, new pads, caliper rebuild kits, strano springs, koni shocks and a couple KOVE armageddon subs with several amps. I THINK that is it, haha. Not to mention the projects I have going on for my bike (zrx1100) as well... Stainless brake & clutch lines, caliper rebuild kits, stick coil replacements, zx11 cdi replacement, zx11 camshafts, valve adjustment shims and valve springs. Work just keeps getting in the way.

    Sweet on the car parts!

    No bikes for me! I get on one of those and my life expectancy drops like a brick in a pond! The last bike I rode was one of the first Hurricanes back in the day! Bad idea for me...speed issues! It's hard enough for me to control myself in the TA! 8-0

    You talking about the cbr1000? That would be about on level with the bike I ride now power wise. Though I think the ZRX is way more sexy. Once I finish the mods to it...or IF I ever finish the mods it will roast a cbr1000

    My brother had a Buell Thunderbolt years ago. I absolutely loved that bike and would have taken it over our H-D Fatboy any day of the week.

    VMAX are some cool bikes. I have been considering one to add to the stable to have a cruiser.

    In my opinion HD are over rated pieces of junk. Though HD owns Buell, or did at least. For the price of an HD I could buy 2-3 other cool bikes.

    One of the reasons I love my ZRX is that it has the old school 80s naked muscle bike look to it. It's not a crotch rocket I have to lay over to ride but will keep up with them.
