    From what I have HEARD, tranny's like the Whole banana shoved into them, although I would think they would tend to make MORE noise while doing so.

    They're replacing the entire rear end. This is why we continue to work with this dealer.

    That's good. If you grab the old one for parts you might be able to sell the housing, axles, backing plates and such.

    Took it to my local speed shop and had a pair of QTP electric cutouts installed on the ends of my Long Tube headers. WOW! What beautiful music that big cam makes coming through the cutouts on LT's! I could just listen to it idling all day.

    Drove Too Fast today. She was clean. Then, I drove home quickly while trying to doge the rain drops, had to turn the wipers on 2x. Pissed me off! Going on a 200 mile cruise tomorrow, and now I have a few rain spots. Going out to clean her now! Sunny weather awaits tomorrow morning.

    I took it to the park where I set up my camera on a tripod to document that big thumping cam.

    Jeremy, I envy your determination. I currently have clutch issues and I think the Tick MC could solve my dilemma. The contents in my MC is black and there are also small solid bits floating around in it. My pedal is slightly mushy at times and it occasionaly sticks to the floor during a hard high RPM shift. And lately slips on a launch.
    BTW; Your photo is exceptional quality. Must have been high-tech equipment.

    That's the position I was in running wires through the firewall for my gauges. Not a whole lot of fun.

    Dreaded doing this since I bought the car. Used to do just fine wedging underneath my truck dash. Totally forgot there was a.. ya know, CHANGE when you go from a truck to a RWD V8 car. :/

    Filled her up with premium after running her damn near bone dry for the first time. Drained and swapped covers on my spare rear because my 'new' rear had a bad cover. Too poor for a specialty cover right now, and if I did I'd make sure my spare tube was straight and just build that thing since it only has 42,000 miles on it. Gonna pick up my Texas Speed Rumbler today from the 'holding house' aka my buddy's storage unit. Probably install it sometime within the next two weeks once I get money for tips and welding said tips.

    Don't feel like shopping for another bumper cover since I already got a really good CETA mod on it right now.

    Prepped my axle back for install, sand and recoat with header paint to help reinforce the somewhat worn coating on the kit. Can't wait to hear this thing fire up in person rather than clips from the internet. Hopefully end up with that machine-gun rumble that I've seen a few with stock manifolds, Ys, and cats pull off.

    Winter projects:

    Started disassembling my rear suspension. I'm going to chrome the half shafts (yes I know it can weaken them), polishing is too much upkeep though. I'll also undercoat the car with Por 15 and top coat that with POR-15 hardnose light gray. I'm also going to powder coat the front suspension to match the rear, and give the exhaust system a brushed finish.
