Very nice looking car and it sounds like a BEAST! Seeing the deep shine in your paint has me wanting to spend the better part of my spring break polishing and waxing my car!

That's Lonestar. You haven't seen deep shine until you have seen this thread...

His car looks better in person. Pics don't do it justice.

I'll definitely be polishing mine (or getting it polished) next week. I washed the car a little after my last post and I can see all the swirls in the paint. It's my DD, but I want it to shine on the street!

Just make sure you pay attention and take your time. If you rush the detailing job, chances inscrease of making a mistake. Plan a whole day and do it right. =)

Post pics when you're done.

Well new pulley was put on before taking it to Newtech for a re-tune. I'm waiting to see what the car makes on 7-8 psi.

When trying to tune my car, Nick @ Newtech said the timing was being thrown off by the computer at the high rpms, so he started tearing the engine apart to find the issue. He says that the sparkplugs in my engine were the wrong range/gap and that it was robbing me of power.

He's swapping the old plugs out for TR6 plugs and re-tuning. Hopefully that has been my issue since picking up the car.

Sweet!! Hope that fixes your problem.

I can't wait to drop my car off with Nick. Long tubes are scheduled to be here this weekend so I hope to be able to get my car to him soon.

That would be great if it fixes it. Post up the new numbers after the tune.
Good Luck !!

Nice new sig Bruce!

@Mike, Nick and Bruce: I'd love to be able to post numbers, but it's almost like my car just doesn't want to be finished ever. It senses that my budget is dwindling and it doesn't like the fact that it won't be feeding on soo my money much longer. =/

Numbers posted tomorrow at 1pm PST if all goes well!!!

Hey no problem. Cars feel that stuff. Just talk to Blue Rush. Tell it that it is good car, a strong car, a fast car, a POWERFUL car... That has to be worth like 10 HP.
