Wiped down the engine bay and stood there and wondered why I don't have a CAI yet.

thats why wheel chocks are also another thing to use when lifting the opposite end, never trust the parking brake or in park.
plus any sharp protrusions from the chassis into the wood could cause splitting.
Ive used wood blocks to drive on but thats about it.

stay away from the cheapo jackstands and you will be alot safer, I work on heavy trucks for a living and have worked under jackstands probably thousands of times by now.

at home right now I got my other ss on jackstands while I go thru the trans, they are 7 ton norco's and that car has probably stayed on them during various upgrades over a year total

Thanks for the experienced input.

Installed ported throttle body, C.A.I. intake, and air scoop. Picture was taken before I removed the washer bottle and installed the air scoop.

Installed the VMAX Ported Throttle Body!! Thought my catch can was going to be a straight forward job, but unfortunately it seems I have a little modifying to do to it. I'll post pics of the catch can install tomorrow.

Soldered wire connections to LED's, installed into sidemarker housings, and resealed the housings. Just need to paint now!

Oh btw for those looking to test the bulb bases when doing the DIY sidemarkers... the bulb in your trunk is the same size! I just pulled it out and plugged in the base to test the LEDs!

Finally got to do her first oil change. Fresh Penzoil 5w-30 Synthetic Blend and Fram filter (was going to use Wix but the filter Cap Wrench wouldn't fit it.

Man... was that oil filthy! And after only 4,000 miles. Do they put used oil in these cars from the factory?
