10mm bolts were somewhat loose. used a reaaaally sweet torque wrench and put them to 57.25 lbs... well because i could. hahaha

cleaned up the grease... will keep a real close eye on it now.

haha.. well... there is a reason for that...
  1. no exhaust - open headers
  2. no mass air flow sensor
  3. tune for procharger - yet... no procharger... just NA

so.. some say lopey... some say... barely running. hahahah

yes... and that I am sure.




not to mention i went and got a new belt... put it on last night, it was tight... (must have been on a rib)
started it this morning and it was loose... so no power steering. It is on the pulleys correctly, so a little curious as to what is wrong now

I loved how it didn't quite want to die when they turned it off. LOL.

That did sound cool though. This will be fun to watch.

Not when there's cars like yours out there!

To answer your question....probably could...the trouble is that the magnetic valve is always moving with the suspension...
