Your welcome brother, I give credit where credit is do. I can't wait to start my swap over, all of the modifying I see here, makes me want to start before I'm ready lol. My heads will be done somewhere in between Feb. 20 and March 1. So I'm counting down the days.

That's awesome. Once you get the heads back you can really get rocking and rolling

Man I was wondering around in the for sale section, and noticed of how much you've sold over the last 2 years. I'm in amazement how much you change up your setup. I'm just curious, but was you not happy with your last couple of setups? Horsepower? I noticed you selling some really great/nice parts. You may change your set-ups a lot, but I admire the fact you've kept the car. My wife always says if I'm going to do all this work, why don't I just buy a brand new car. Then I say, well they don't make these cars anymore lol. She doesn't get what we do is considered fun to us. Ahh WEMON, can't live with them and damn sure can't live without them AMEN!

Yeah I’ve gone through quite a few different motors/setups. Last motor was a blower setup that starved of oil. To be honest, it was a balls to the wall blower build, big blower making 21psi and I could barely get 600rwhp out of it and battled constant belt slip and shredding belts. That’s when I decided to go turbo on this build and decided to step to TF heads. It used to be a fun car but the torque was super weak too

Finally a nice day. Took her out and went for a cruise with my cousins twin turbo termi. Couldn’t be happier with how it turned out. Plan is to put miles on it February and March and get some tuning done in April

So you w obviously got it warm enough to go into the auto learn function. How does it seem to be doing as it learns on its own????

I’m in the process of moving so I don’t have a ton of time/money to put into it. Thinking in the fall I’ll get it on some rollers and over the summer just put some miles on it

sixty miles on the road but I bet you spent 59 miles of that time checking gauges. I am Curious if you have got the fuel gauge to work with out being too jumpy?

Haha pretty much. Fuel gauge seems pretty damn accurate so far...slam on brakes or something and it hops around a bit
