Lol yeah indys fatass deff held me back ... But I doubt it would have made a big difference. And racing from a dig was pointless with my bottle-caps so it wasnt even an option lol

Lol no? I didnt want him blowing up his motor by revving it too high in a line-up so if he wasnt up for it then it was fine by me. And nahh, I think Alan might be able to take me. We will find out.

For the love of god, remember where each little vacuum line goes. Also remember to press the injectors back into place with a fair amount of force. I had a vacuum leak on the #6 because it wasn't snugged in all the way.


Anyone know what exactly the process is for fixing bent wheels?

Ass, took us like 6 hours, I mean if you have experience taking on the manifold already, and have like every bolt size on hand neatly in toolbox and inside a garage it may not be as bad.

Also I would have new clamps, and at least one hose ready.

Small hands might be a big help too

But good luck with that ,you'll need it

Karl and others....any suggestions on adding extra half to 1 qt of oil or lucas mystery oil or other additive for auto x, because I always get a sticky lifter tick after my second run? Heard its very common with m5x and s5x, but I dont like it

If you're gonna autox a lot, get a baffled oil pan to keep your oil near the pump pickup.


Picked up a new (used) TV today. 57" Hitachi 1080i widescreen. CRT Projection. Thus far, works perfectly, and the color is great. $40.
