I wouldn't have had a clue here it happened if he hadn't called... would have blamed it on the Mexican Restaurant parking lot we were at..

Been crazy busy at work, so I'm catching up again here on the forum. I'm hoping to get started on the interior in a couple of weeks. Going to do a customized ZL1 dash with HUD and a stereo setup.

I'm thinking 6 amps, 4 18" subs, 24 tweeters and 8 TV screens (not really).

Got a few more ideas I'm working on to finish before the fest. I'll post once final decisions are made.

Thanks bro. Hopefully I can get over to ARD soon so we can dyno with the new direct port. I'm hoping she'll break into quadruple digits. Then we'll take her out and improve those 1/4 mile times.

Pete rocks. NO doubt about it.

Ask him where LCAs should be bought for those interested.

I was thinking how cool it is to hang with the H Town crew. I feel like I am part of the family. Thank you all and especially the ladies. I still can't believe they went to pick up all my girls. Too cool.

I've been really busy at work (and playing golf ), and kind of put the interior on hold. I know what I want, and I'm sure I'll get started soon. Doubt it'll be ready for the fest though.

The heat is so bad in Houston, and the engine bay is just getting too hot when I drive it around town. I've ordered a few things to try and cool it off.

1) VIS Racing Hood - The hood has multiple vents, so I'm hoping this will let some of the pressure out. It's made out of carbon fiber, but it should look good in IOM.

2) Larger Radiator - Owen ordered me a larger radiator that holds more fluid. It should be here soon.

3) ACS Functional Mail Slot - I'm not expecting that much out of this, but everything helps. It always seemed strange to me that GM didn't make this functional, so if nothing else is should look pretty cool.

A few other goodies coming, so I'll try and get back in here more often.
