You know I really don't like the seats or harnesses in your car, but honestly your 9000 looks clean as hell. From the outside, the untrained eye would not notice any differences. Very nice Kaylan!

stx, that picture is good because it conveys the feel of the process you have to go through with custom tuning, etc. If you removed the people it would just be a bad picture of a car with no hood and wires coming out of it. You can tell K and Brian are tired and the car looks tired of it too.

I always worry about Jail time when driving my Vig.. Not exactly going to be a 10 over ticket Doesn't really grip till around 70

Good luck. I fought the ac on/ off idling on my Nira car for an hour one day only to find a hose blown off the throttle.

Thanks. I may be ordering something from you soon, you seem to be reasonably priced on forged pistons. Im not exactly sure whats wrong, the motor seems perfectly fine but if I have to do a head gasket again im just going to do a complete rebuild and upgrade a few things. I think the time has come, before it really breaks.

Leak down test this afternoon will finish telling my story im sure. I still have perfect compression and everything else is right. There has to be a problem in that motor though... maybe the timing chain slipped a tooth or something... I wish I didn't work so much so I could just take a few hours to figure this out.

Yea, that is what I did on the last head gasket failure, new bearings and timing chain and forged pistons for the b234r with the coatings

They make a great combo, then you hit it with a 50hp shot of nitrous and not worry...
