So if you look a little above you can see that my fuel filler neck is well rotted and is causing some serious vacuum leaks. Thanks to rock auto and it arrived in 3 short days. Rowdy burnouts and loud noises: The Big Turbo LSX/RS swap project-uploadfromtaptalk1400547216388.jpg

Unfortunately I had to wire my dads 2 step into his mustang and his tach adapter for his msd ignition. He hates wiring so I traded the wiring so he'll buff my car before WBM.

Saturday was my gf's prom so obviously I attended that instead of working on my car.

Sunday came along and I pulled out the old filler neck only to realize I needed the fuel shut off valve because the old one was completely rotten.

None of the parts store could get it so to wait for Monday to go to the dealership. Fast forward to Monday we had the day off due to a threat on the school. I took advantage of the day off and drove to Vermont to pick up the valve that cost me $80!!!!.

Of course it was pouring rain outside and my garage bay was taken up by a vw bug I had to work outside.

Setting up the canopy is a pain so I took a beer break.

Noticed my sway bar is absolutely puny.

Cut some lines out to make it easier.

Then put it all back together and still had misfires. Quite disappointing so me and my buddies went four Wheeling. (Yes we made over that tree)
