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. 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)

More to come next time.

Yeah I'm going to leak test it again to see if I missed something.

So I was finally able to acquire a tactrix cable to do a more in depth search of my car. I'll have more details about flashing and what not later on this week.

*Life update: scored a summer job at Walmart to wheels and coils will be coming sooner than I thought.

Now onto a small car update. I'm just wrapping up the smaller things in preparation for WBM.

Started with some much needed spring cleaning.

Took some pictures hard parking in the driveway.

Touched up my intake where the bov chipped it.

And got spotted at work. Someone screen shotted it and sent it to me lol. I need to inform her it's actually blue.

More to come when the cable arrives.

Hunting vacuum leaks still. Hopefully solved the problem.


And I don't think I've ever showed you guys a bay shot before to here you go.

So with a fresh inspection sticker my Dad,GF, and I loaded up at 4:00 a.m and set out for Londonderry. I didn't sleep at all that night because I graduated highschool Saturday and the party didn't die down until late. We arrived in Londonderry only to find out that the organizer of the group wasn't going to make it. So with a bugeye, a flared miata, a slammed e36, and an ungodly loud s4 we made our way through morning traffic and got to wbm at a reasonable time. Unfortunately I forgot the camera so no pictures of the meet or of my car. Hopefully someone caught a pic of me though. Overall the car ran great and had its legs stretched a bit. This will be me last wbm for 2-3 years because I leave for Ohio in the fall.
