Default The Grond Chronicles : More mods as I return from Florida... [Dialup- naptime]

I returned tonight to the Frozen North from sunny Florida, and what to my wandering eye should appear? Why, more mods waiting on my doorstep

Here are the obligatory pics.

Boost, vacuum and fuel pressure gauges and a 2 gauge A-pillar pod








Randy of DRM sent me a stiffer set of rear springs for my coilovers


Additional material so I can continue to bone up on tuning now that I have EFILive.

Wow! What very cool early Christmas gifts, EG. Honestly, I must say that you are doing such a fabulous, and, exempliary job of modding Sir Grond. Cheers, and, a very, Merry Christmas to you, EG.

Those should at least help a little to get past the shock of the snow and the cold you came home to.

I have no chance of ever beating you at anything, GB. Now, hold up so I can catch up to where you were 10 years ago!!!

EG: now that you are moving to FL, you can get a vert and start all over on Grond II.

I spent some time up there in CT at EB and the Subase; it's much nicer down here except for July/August/September (tfh) and then September/October (think Hurricane Stephen). At least you will be south of I-4 (diverts most of the Yankees who get past Daytona). As you get more gray hair, you will really fit in.

Enjoy!

I allready made sure with Stephen, he's got a big white hat and coat, with the big wrap around sun glassses, and a matching cane to boot.

Does it ever stop!? That's awesome! Those things are going to be burning into you at every sight of them, as you now must wait several monthes for the install I've had my blower about a month, trust me it KILLS you after a while!

I have a full head of grey as it is - and Chris (Stangkiller) already asked me a few times if I was OK, because he didn't want me to break a hip or anything young whippersnapper!
