Anyway Happy T. day I am at my shop re-assembling my car, I drive my car daily  !, had cracked exhaust -got welded ,bad u joint on axle -swapped out a used one, rear differential has been sticky and clunky ( Nisssan comp 160 locker) so I tried an lsd 85-140 Valvaline  with additive from napa ,8$; toothpaste tube ,rear brakes grooved  and winey ,turned rotors and remove caliper shims ,Also had small oil leak at rear center of turbo ,I smell sometimes  ,also my 1st sr swap and look at turbo feeds with hoses , I may change to all hard lines and at that time I pulled my oil pressure line from turbo oil feed , fuel pump and 3/8 ss,and look at my low oil pan ,ouch ,.Anyway you do things different  after you have done a few ,my car is getting a freddy copy intake soon ,reasonable and better performance upgrade .Orange car was a drive by.104_2028.jpg104_2031.jpg104_2033.jpg104_2030.jpg

You have too much shit Brad. I think I need to come out there and help you get rid of some of it...


I came here today to chew some bubblegum and kick some ass. Right now I'm all out of bubblegum. 

 

My biggest fear is that when I die, My wife will sell my cars for what she thinks I have in them.
