Your "intercooler" is really going to limit how much power you can make on 93.

Well, there has been yet another delay (surprise!) with the build. Now the powdercoater is behind and we have to wait for him. Can anything go smoothly? I mean honestly? Check the date of the 1st post... we are way past the original deadline.

The builder should have never gave such a short finish time as swaps always take longer then they should. I called it in my first post in this Thread because as someone who has swapped many Fieros I knew it would take longer. Hell I have been working on finishing up a 3800SC swap for over 4 months now and still not done..

How come you opted to hire out this time around? Just no time/room to work on yourself?

Dean called today. He said he felt bad that my build has gone so far past due that he installed my fully adjustable HT slalom suspension for free! SWEET!

But, still nothing from the powder coater.

I drove up to Atlanta yesterday so I swung in to check on my car. Didnt stay but 10min and had to rush back out. Sorry to those that were there, I wasnt trying to be anti-social, I just didnt have much time to stick around.

(and no, its still not running)

Thanks! I was thinking of getting some OL2's. I hear OL's are pretty beast. My SwampLites are super grippy but they dig like nobodies business. I got beached and had to winch out twice now. I mean the 1000 is a HP beast of a motor and will sling dirt like there is no tomorrow. So yeah, it was the machine, not the driver!

And since I am getting old and broken, Wicked Built Unisteer should be here this week. I also got a set of 1.5" spacers. I am too poor to get a nice LT suspension so I took the easy way out.

Dean should get a powder coating oven in his shop. It would be a lot easier and quicker. I "heard" that powder coating is a pretty simple process too.
