Next weekend we will prob do something again, I will post up as I figure it out.

Buick was a PITA, not really all that bad, but it was still annoying. Had to JB weld base of intake (thanks harry) and then sand flat but the new gaskets and copper spray seem to be holding.

Supercharged FWD v6 is so stupid instant torque, tons of torque steer.

Work day at my place this Sat

I have to rebuild the front suspension on the GMC so I can get it aligned as I got some new shoes for it. Either way I have $300+ worth of bushings to press and burn out so it should be a fun day. Bring your **** that you need fixed and we can take a look at it if we have time.

Method race wheels. 20x9 et18 and ~34lb.


Made in China but sold out of LA warehouse. I am happy with look and feel of them. They are the same weight as my steel 17x7.5 wheels with 245/70/17.

Took over a year looking at wheels before I finally picked these.

So who's showing up to help with the e39 clutch swap?

Chances are today I will go slow and maybe get as far as just getting trans and clutch out as I have a lot of little shifter parts to replace

Ok because it makes no sense that we didn't have any big meets when the weather was great so let's start having some now.

Either way this Saturday and Sunday I have a ton of car stuff I need to catch up on so I am spending hopefully all day working so send me a text and stop by and hang out, bring something you want worked on and we can go from there.
