Sounds good! (pun intended) The 4.4i with exhaust sounds completely bad ass! Post some pics and sound clips when you get the chance, I think I need to as well.

You young whippersnappers should know this computer stuff. You can resize pictures with Photochop or even with MS Photo Editor.

Joel - download this program - http://www.irfanview.com/

It's a great utility that is free and it does a wonderful job of resizing pictures.

What kind of software are you using? Photoshop? Windows Picture and Fax Viewer?
I have Photoshop Elements, and I adjust the size using Image, Resize. Same procedure for Microsoft Photo Editor. When using Windows Pictures and Fax Viewer, it's easy to edit the size of the picture using the Stretch/Skew or Attributes functions under Image. There are other methods, too, but these are the ones that I am familiar with.

How about posting some pics of your mom. Since you're so young, she's gotta have a few miles left on the tread.

Thanks for that. I thought there was a utility like this out there somewhere, but I could not locate it. I downloaded it and played around. Quick, easy and painless resizing.

Joel, can u send me those empty Remus boxes so I can package my Remus to send to Ken? The makeshift boxes I have are way to wide (overall physical dimension) and none of the shipping companies would take them . They all have this crazy way of calculating the max size you can send something like length times width plus height.

I'm very sorry for the delay, Ken. If I can get my hands on Joel's empty boxes, I'll send them to u ASAP.

You are one crazy fook, and worse in person!!

Do those big brass ones ride in the passenger's seat or do you just throw them in the trunk?

No problem, Phong. Worry about nothing; I am very patient. It will be my Christmas present to me. At your convenience.

As SuperGreg would say: "Gerrrr."
