Yeah, the lapping is 5-8 and drag is until 11 pm. So even if you get a half day or leave a few hours early.

I'm not on a mon-fri 9-5 schedule, I work quick rotating 12hr shifts, and we have a min complement to maintain, and summer vacation picks are in so I have off what I have.

I'll maybe throw a thread up for that when I figure out a date.
I'd be good for that.... no E30 tho

Just saw this thread - Nice pick up richie! We should have an experiment in the name of science to see how the s/c builds boost vs turbo. Just need to get my cyl head back on first.....

Yamahammer If you're doing a Cayuga day PM me and let me know..Could be a good opportunity to do some test/tuning. I should be down!

I'd be in for a Cayuga evening.

In the name of science we can compare boost vs M60 V8 displacement.

So roads are clean, got plated and took the car for a few drives around the east end.

Power is amazing, car drives and brakes amazingly

Only things I'm not happy with and going to have to address

1) it's loud, 3 inch pipe with cat and little muffler are not enough, gonna have to put a res or two on it.

2) the 4.10 while fun as hell, needs to be changed to a 3.73, at 110km/hr 2800-3000 rpm is a little high in 5th for my liking

3) may upgrade the sway bars, I have a vert front and IX rear bars in the garage, so this may help to get the car a little more to my liking.

Other then that I'm very happy with the perforce of this car
