P, that 8 rib set by Innovators West makes the world of difference, upgrading from the 6 rib. We tuned it safely at 12 lbs of boost and when I get back to NJ we're going to add 2 degrees of timing since NJ has higher octane gas (93 & 94) and with my Torco per tankful I'll be close to a 100 octane, so more timing! It's expensive, but when you build and start hitting high HP it's just added insurance, plus Jessika from SuperCharger Connections hooked me up on the deal. It's definitely a must have! The cars got picked up on Thursday and the movers came Friday and we started the journey east this afternoon, so we stopped in Arizona for some rest, then it's on the road again! Got some BIG things planned once I get back to NJ

Thanks brother Kurt, obviously I posted that last night before I checked Facebook and saw another longtime friend from home passed away, thank you again for saying the "right things" in shitty times. I'm so happy to call you a friend!

You're lucky I didn't take a picture of the whole car, it's embarrassing how dirty the ZLX is

2200 miles to go, all because of "mans best friend", my dogs, or else we would've just flown back and shipped all the cars

I'll check in in another 7-800 miles, time to hit the road.

thank you Kathy & Kurt, well after 4 days we made it back to NJ safe & sound on Wednesday, averaged about 700 miles a days, I didn't really want to push it and the dogs were doing fine. I will admit there were sometimes I wish I was in the ZLX and could just open her up and hit some of those beautiful turns and straight aways. But the ZLX got to travel in luxury in a nice big, enclosed car hauler along with the wife's Benz. They arrived right on time the following day in perfect condition! So to anyone that needs any auto transport, I high recommend Skyline Auto Transport, Enok and his crew really know how to take care of high end cars and they were babied from day 1. Hit me up if you need their info. Thanks Kurt for the spiritual guidance, I definitely felt it along the way! And as I edged closer to NJ, that's what kept me going and then driving through Indy I realized that's where the Fest will be and should be a walk in the park to get there! So hopefully I'll see you soon!!!

Thank Tim, it's finally over, we'll except for unloading the boxes. But the worst is behind us, we got here safely, as did the cars and dogs, so that's all can ask for. I thank you and the rest of my forum friends for all the support throughout the move. I got to my cousin's house and waiting for me was a huge box from " In The News" with the 2 plaques from the latest magazines that the ZLX was in! Man are those plaques awesome Tim, thanks for the hook u Tim I already have Centree working on the dash plaques! I can't thank you enough for that connection, and as soon as I get the computer set up I'll post some pictures of those beauties!

You sure got that right RC it's nerve racking, nauseating, tiring, boring, and seems never ending all rolled into one! But thank God it's finally over and I can enjoy my car with my East Coast familia! I'm really looking forward to hitting up Atco and the new track in Milville and pushing the ZLX to its limits, because that's what it's been built for!

That's awesome lil brotha, I hope your date appreciated all the extra effort you went through to show her a good time! If you think that's powerful, try adding 200+ HP to that and you have the ZLX Everyone that's sat in the passenger seat has had the ride of their lives, I make sure of it!

Just need to finish unpacking everything and then I can get started back on focusing on the whips and the finishing touches. I've already reached out to some fellow NJ C5ers and we're going to have some BIG things planned coming up and definitely making plans to hit the fest this year and meet up with as many good peeps as possible!

Next step is a full detail with all my Adams products, finish installing my Showstopper accessories and make an appointment with East Coast Supercharging to add about 2 degrees of timing since I finally have some real gas with octane above 91!!!! Anything for more power, right!!!

Thanks again EVERYONE for all the constant support throughout my move, it really helped! God bless!
