    my stress level dropped a whole 95% this week.....

    the other 5% is me trying to get the Z running in a few days.


    and now I can move on with my life...as long as I don't run into those guys in like a supermarket or restaurant.

    do you have a t3/t4 decent turbo, a 24x18x3 intercooler, and 6 SVO injectors that I get to me in a day? Then swap out the engine or at least the oil pan, and get the car tuned with the Haltech E6K that I have before the 28th...fo the mere price that I got the carbs for?


    Thats the winter project...;) Along with fully stripping the car, sandblasting it, getting MMS rear control arms, ArizonaZcar front arms, Technotoytuning camberplates, groundcontrol coilovers, paint, new seats, painless wire harness, full blown turbo setup, flares, and more body work including the baddog framerails and floorpans...... And then swapping the un-used parts to the yellow Z that I snagged for $500 that I raped these carbs from...:p

    egt/cht from an aircraft. The best monitoring system I've seen for a decent price. Just swap the leads for the cht to a large sparkplug lead, and mount under the spark plug, then you have full knowledge on your spark and head temps..... then mount the egt sensors to the header, and find out your egt's per cylinder...and it cuts the trouble shooting down to 90% when you have a proble...and you can monitor it at a blink of the eye while racing. Plus I have the Halmeter wideband O2 sensor for the mixture...and the haltech E6K to access everything else....from a laptop monitor to full driving tuning.

    eBay Motors: Brand New! Dynon EMS-D10 Engine Monitor w/Probes ! (item 4651642065 end time Nov-07-07 07:25:56 PST)

    this one is a little too much over kill, and has other things that I can't use for a car....and a tad out of my pricerange...but if I can get a few geeks to put something like that...together for car aplications...which will be just some minor imput changes and some software adjustments...then I'd prolly snag it if those geeks could make it work. I like the stack displays...but stack just doesn't have the monitoring abilities that I want.
