Took my engine cover off today in anticipation of the new parts to find about an inch of dust on everything. Nothing a wet rag couldn't take care of. I think it looks much better with no cover.

Yeah, a couple of guys talked/posted pics about it in a tread about engine covers. I need to find out what hose I need and where I can get it. Those things are ugly and probably dont help the heat issue too much. I must hide them at once!

Yeah, that hunk of plastic looked like sh!t. I didn't even like the painted ones. Besides, when you own a beast, you don't doll it up and make it look pretty. You show it off in its raw form, to scare off all the rustangs and brodozers


P.S. People, new parts are coming in on Tuesday. I hope to get all the stuff installed ASAP when it all gets here, so keep a lookout for a bunch of new pictures and maybe a video

First of my upgrades came in this morning. Thanks to Juiced1 for selling me this awesome CAI. Was extremely easy to install, and makes the car sound so much better. I'll report back on engine response improvements after I take her for a spin tonight after I get the other stuff installed.

Well, finally got the exhaust on. Its the Corsa cat-back system. Took about 1.5 hours to install. I absolutely love the sound.

I want one really bad, but I cant afford that right now. Maybe I'll get a buddy o' mine to fabricate one.

So I drove the car to Cody yesterday. About a 450+ mile trip. There was lots of wind, and plenty of elevation change. We did about 70mph the whole way and got an average of 26 MILES PER GALLON! I must say I am very impressed with the highway fuel economy of this car, and the exhaust and CAI definitely helped.

Time to dump some more pictures again from this weekend's events.



My Dad and I prepping our cars for a wedding. That's a Dodge DeSoto Suburban that has been in our family since the day it first rolled of the lot in 1947.



Helped my brother work on his car. Its currently grounded and receiving some new performance mods. Really close to being as fast as my Camaro there:



I don't know about you, but I think those are both some damn sexy engine bays.



My dog trying to look cool in front of the DeSoto.



A close up of him trying to look cool.
