IT STARTED!!!!!! thats right! after over 3 months of being in the shop my car started and sounded wicked! The entire fuel system in now installed and is getting wired up this morning. The car doesnt have mufflers or a x-pipe for the time being because I'm not sure what i'm doing yet.

We decided to run an Aeromotive regulator and get new fuel rail setup so we can be sure fuel is being distributed evenly to each fuel rail. Gauges are being installed today with dual PLX gauges.

The car will be sent to the tuner today for a couple days and then I get to break it in for a few days before it goes back for a more aggressive tune. I'm getting some videos uploaded right now of the first start up.

The guy at the shop told luke what he needed to tune my car and luke took care of everything and dropped it off, then the tuner called me around 9p that night and said he needed map sensor (which he told luke he had and could install it on my car), center console (???), exhaust (im strightpiped), no gas(told him to just add it to the bill; theres one across the street), gauge for A/F (i told him he could plug in the OBD-II gauge in for that info) and said the car wasn't reliable to tune.

This all happened on Thursday night and he said it would only take 2 days to tune. I got the sensor he needed and when i asked what day it would be done he said next saturday.....almost a week -_-

So i decided that was not going to work and told him i needed to pick up my car. I get off work at 530p in San Francisco, and he said he'd give me until 6pm to pick up the car otherwise i would not be able to pick it up until the wednesday of the following week. The car didnt even have a trunk on it, so I had to get my buddy to push the car out of his shop and let it sit in the rain until i could get the trunk up there....not the best night....

and now the car is sitting at blu808; luke is working with LG to get a base tune going and someone from SoCal is coming up to tune the car now.
