If it were a brand new kit, it would have been quicker. But it's been fun. Been a long time since I got down and dirty under a hood.

Oh, and I need to fab up a air hose to work with my CAI. I can't use the maggie one with mine.
I still have to button it all up and reroute some things to more aesthetic places. But took this before we left the house.

You got it easy... My grampaw used to milk cows at 4 am, walk 6 miles to school in the snow... yes, up-hill... both ways, THEN come home only to pick cotton till 11pm. Only then could he have his one meal for the day... a lard sandwich.

... Have you ever tried to pick cotton in the snow? He was a real man

Ok. I could only find orange hoses tonight. Figured I'd put them on for temporary. So I only have my fuel line, tighten the belt, and put on the front pipe to get it going.

Nope.

I have to sort out what tune I have on my tuner. Tim says it should be a stock Magnuson tune. I'm using the 3.8 pulley to start so that's all I need to drive it to the tuners. I just need to verify that it is in fact correct. I may have to wait til MOnday and ask Jessika to check it out if I email it to her.

Good plan.

... Now that the hard part is done, would you do it again?
