Thanks man. I was hoping they would come out good. It's always scary with modifications like that.

I can't wait for that video. That car should sound beastly and will be packing some major balsagna to say the least.

Well, I had my meeting today....and all is good....

I have no complaints and I do work for a Great Company...

The best part of the day was meeting with DangeruSS and mlee for dinner. We ate at Pappas Bros Steak House.

Wow, All I can say is Russ sure knows a Great Steak Place... The salad, the Wine, the Steak (16 oz Filet Mignon) I didn't know they made em that big...but they do...and the Au-gratin potato's... Topped off with Key Lime pie.... All in all, great company, great food... and a bit over three hours....

Back to Brandi... Corey finished and coated the inlet pipes. He isolated/removed and sealed up the coolant lines that used to feed the oil cooler block.... and we only have to finish the shroud for the new remote oil cooler and wait for the oil supply fitting for the drivers' side turbo to arrive. We will then fill the differential with fluid, and start the break-in of the new rear gears with at least two heat/cool periods on the dyno... This will allow us to heat the gears in a controlled environment rather than on the road.... and to monitor for any fluid leaks... We had a lot of stuff loosened and or disconnected and added quite a bit of oil coolant line. I'll then drive Brandi home for the night and then back to the shop on Friday and allow her to cool again and then back on the dyno for more gear break-in...

By Friday evening if all goes well I should be able to drive her to San Antonio for our Friday night gathering...
