I really miss my Rubi, not a day goes by that I don't stare at another Wrangler on the road. Can't wai for Jeep to release the Diesel engine in the Wrangler to buy another one, by then the SS should be paid off.

I would like to OFFICIALLY anounce that LMR is going to assist me in voiding the warranty on my 2013 SS. It was a long and debatable struggle but my need for speed has won me over ! (PHEW) !!!! Feels good to get it off my chest !!!

It's a play on words but its also a homonym. It does also have a root meaning to music.

Enemy Marksmanship Badge is what we called it. Like Sapper said...don't want one but...bones heal, chicks dig scars, glory lasts forever.

Nice car!

Good lookin and I have to ask, how nice is it to have a car like that where the roads are so wide open?

Extremely dangerous, the same night i bought it, I had the SS up to 105mph and didnt even realize it. The Army made me a very safe drive, since owning the car Ive reverted to my High School method of driving. Its hard to keep this car under 45mph and when Im on the open road my foot suddenly has a bubble of extra heavy gravity around it.

Well I decided that it was time to install the various parts I've had sitting in boxes . Well not having much time on my hands I visited Fast Automotive, here in Houston. Needless to say the owner is an upstanding guy, even got to ride in his monster ZL1 that is pushing 730 RWHP. Well got my CAI with scoop, washer bottle relocation kit, catch can and calipers painted.

Even had a coworker play a prank on me and the owner at Fast Automotive took the time to wash my SS.

Swapped out the factory throttle body for a ported one from FSP, hand delivered by Matt himself.
