Top pic is the day I got her home with a cell phone.

Shop pics where during the exhaust install.

Road pic was driving through Miami showing off on the way to a full moon drum circle on the beach.

Extenders on the 02 bung appears to have fixed the CEL. Fuse pull going on as we speak right now in the parking lot at work, will report if any difference tomorrow.

CEL isn't going away, will be ditching the HF cats and going with LT headers + tune later this month. Already ordered headers.

Also installed the Vittesse Throttle Controller, I'll get some pics up this weekend. Really enjoying it so far.

3.91 rear end gear and BMR bushings paid for this morning also.

Seems my plans of staying small and inexpensive, and keeping the warranty intact are out the window at this point LOL.

I also changed the name of the thread to reflect the new name of the car, I'll explain the reasoning..

I'd been thinking of what to name her for a while, It's become a memorial to my father who passed away late 2013. My earliest memory of him was his late 70's Z28, which he never named.

My father always came up with weird names for pets, the earliest I remember is a dog named W, so the single letter name fits.

My father's name was Glen (odd spelling, only 1 N, so that works)

He was also kind of a racist, and the car is black... I'll leave that to the imagination.

So with those things, naming the car "N" just fits, so thats what I'm going with :P

BO white PTB came in today, just waiting on Torque Converter to start the surgery.

Waiting on 555r's also, will be going square 275 set up when they come in, put new p-zero's on the back for now until they get here. Then I'll be moving those to the front and putting the 555r's on the back.

excitement is building..

Got her back and running break in on TC and Diff gears now. Sounds great, very choppy idle so far. Haven't really been able to get on her to see the power increase yet but I'll keep you updated.

Retune next week after break in.

got the hood on, having a friend paint it in the next couple weeks. I actually kind of like the look with black car + white hood, but Needs painted anyway so might as well match the car with it.

For a while I was considering leaving it white, and doing the trunk white also. It would look cool but I'm wanting to put most of the money into making the car faster instead of pretty, so I opted to go the cheaper route so I have more money to put into the engine in the future
