well, i wasn't going to put this back together until i finished the red wagon (doug's) but while waiting on parts i got bored and i had to put it back together.

that 400hp feels so good again! i am so very pleased, i hugged the car, i swear. winning.

special shoutout to kenny for helping so much with the tune, it really does run ****ing solid. i'll be at SE (X) with this car and i plan to install the kentake for mucho win.

the heater control valve blew in the middle of a drag run. all the coolant spewed from cyl #3 and melted the gasket, cracking the piston.
