I wish I was in Cali, I'd have races all day.

All I have here are horse and buggies

I do want to post a bigger video, drive by, exhaust, inside, race, 15 psi.

Have been doing little things to the car lately.

Right now I'm looking for some nice reclinable racing seats.

Any ideas? I'm weary of the Ebay ones, I'm afraid they'll break on me.

I want black leather, need to move forward somehow so I still have access to the back seats. And I want to spend <500 for two, not an easy feat. Used is fine by me as long as they look new.

Haven't raced one damn car yet either, can't even find rice when I'm on the highway. Tried to go with 3 different Mustang GTs and they didn't want it

Try to look for a set of rsx seats. They are super comfy and super light. You would just have to make brackets for them. There was a set around here for 200.

These don't seem too bad?

BTW Brad, this kit will probably be for sale within a year to two years if you still want FI then.

Meh, didn't find many that I liked. I found the same kind I brought up before, but they're PVC, not real leather.

I also like these, but they're only cloth.

How much?!

Maybe you can drive your car to CA, and we can install it, and have a new FI thread with EPIC content. FTMFW!!

Yea, you can't tell unless you hear it

Updates are, the used (free) .140 MLS gasket is what is causing my oil seepage. Time for a brand new .140 and some M3 cams. Then dyno, then interior, then suspension.

And for those that are going at my used .140 MLS, it was taken apart, cleaned, and hit with some copper spray, but I guess it just wasn't enough. Oh well, time for some mo power anyway.
