I never shifted my M47 very hard and it still didn't last under boost, though it was high miles worn out junk. No way one can handle 250hp tho.

Threads in head. Parts from IPD ("stage zero" the turbo motor: gaskets, seals, hoses, belts). $500 more denaros.

Bought another cool part from Harold. Even more denaros.

There must be a 12 step program...

Been working on the garage this week. Sorting dusty boxes labeled "keepsake." So much stuff. Only been in this house about ten years.

Picked up "PVA" primer for the bare drywall and some builder white paint to go over it. Hoping to remove two or three shelving units and have a much brighter work place.

Big push this weekend as the car is in the driveway for the first time in three years.

White primer does an amazing job of brightening up a garage! When I drywalled and just rolled the walls it was quickly apparent the difference it makes! A well lit shop is very helpful (especially as one gets older)!

One of the great things about cleaning your garage is all the memorabilia you run across. For example: Why on earth would I have two mint copies of an issue of Dirt Rider magazine from 15 years ago?

Because I was famous!! Yeah, and I would be the "lapped rider" in black. LOL.





My first "real" race. It was epic. So much fun.


A few better shots. Miss those days.

Getting closer.

Ordered a sweet VDO 0-30 boost gauge.

Despite my concerns that I had never heard of a M9x1.25 stud, that's what the pranksters at the machine shop put in my head to replace the damaged M8's. Not having much luck. May take it back and have them go to a different size. Or just swap on the head from my B230... So frustrating.

You might get in touch with Jessuph Estrada, since I think he still has the head I gave to Damnyou Wahlberg, which came off my 245's B21FT. He did rebuild it, before all the shit hit the fan with Wahlberg. He could swap the guts of your head into it, if your stuff is different front stock specs.

Good to know / thx! We seem to collect obscure "one-time" tools over the years.
