hmm, well thats weird.. mine looks crooked.. well yours sort of does too in the first pic. Guess it will fit.. or we will leave it up to Owen to make sure it works.

I never laid eyes on mine in person, but they both look slightly crooked. Maybe it's the angle of your pic because it looks slightly more crooked than mine. Either way, it'll look good once it's in because mine sure does. You'll love it! :thumbsup:

Side note, I need to call the tech support line of the company that makes the gauges. My AFR gauge has recently started bouncing all over the damn place. I'll be idling and it'll jump from 11 to 19 to 14 to 10.....and it's even gotten stuck at 47.5 on a few occasions. I spoke with Andy and he said that it was odd for it to do that, but that it may need calibrated. :facepalm:

maybe.. but that the crookedness is still there head on. you can see the difference in distance from screen to edge.
Hmm, that is weird.. something needs to be calibrated for sure

but enough about that... I am sure it will be perfect once on.

Kyle,

You left out the part where a guy from Dallas that you didn't know that well came to Austin and picked you up and brought you back to Dallas to get your car (that wasn't ready yet) and aligned the car for ya. I can't remember that guys name off the top of my head, but I heard he is AWESOME !!

Kyle is a awesome guy and im glad to stay a great friend, the car turned out amazing man next time your in DFW let me know gotta go for a ride. Also if any of you guys have questions please feel free to pm me, anyone that has met me and talked to me knows that i am a honest up front tell it how it is guy i dont beat around the bush or rip people off
I don't want my name to be associated with xhp and the bad rap that they have because i had nothing to do with the bad rep that they have, i have always been honest and up front with everyone i dealt with and will do that the rest of my life even if that costs me my job, in the end what goes around comes around and i am a strong believer in this. i have been screwed over in the past and i know how it feels, everyone i ever dealt with while working there i treated them the same way i would be expected to be treated.

oh shit.. EDIT

My last few nights in town, thought I would spend them with Debbie...
Thanks for the offer though...and if we can work out the details, I'll be shipping my 18 inch wheels and tires to joes nephews house in Chandler... That will save me from driving the rubber off of them on the way out there...

We need to get together on a departure time from Austin for the 13th... My plan is to go through JC, Fred, and Harper, on to IH 10 near Segovia and meet up with the SA Houston etc folks before Junction... I'm figuring around an 8:00 to 8:30 departure time... Maybe we hook up at the Homedepot in Dripping Springs... meet up with Happy Pappy and head out...

Same day... we met briefly as I was talking to your buddy that was there with you. I was there w/ Superman09 from College Station...

...and yes the IOM w/ CGM stripes had us all drooling


Shoot me your flight info and I'll pick you up... I need to go that way and see how my car is progressing too...


P.S. I heard they took yours off the Dyno so mine could go on first...
