that's awesome that you're going forged.

.. if you wouldnt mind .. if you do a mod-style party or gathering for your engine rebuild, could you let me know ..

i've been dying to see / do an engine overhaul and would love to see the process .. as they say, words can only explain so much.


have fun @ the CI.

Sorry to hear the news.

Can't wait for the write up!

Good thing I don't have dialup.

Get some good pics of the over indulgences of our forum brothers on display.

Have fun, wish I could be there!

The reincarnation of Grond cometh! To rise like a phoenix from the ashes of the underworld!!

Oh!!.... Sorry Stephen, got carried away... Have a good time at Cruise In,
wish I could have been there. And of course, looking forward to further
news from the Chronicles of Grond!

Sorry to hear about your car. I have faith in you though. You will make it better than before.

Enjoy yourself at CI.

What kind of sound did it make when it finally crapped out under the 12 lbs of boost? A bang, a boom, a pop, sort of a fart or whimper? Other than continually depressing the gas pedal and getting no result, what other immediate sign or signs did you have that it was history?

With the rebuild will this get you into the second 100 grand you have into the car already, or are you still on the first?

Thanks.

Are you nuts! "Stock" and "12 pounds of boost" should never be used in the same sentence!

Good luck with the rebuild!
