    Well, I finally did what I never thought I would ever do. Not so much as wreck it but be careless with the car i worked so hard to get it to where it was. Went through a roundabout too quick, too late and just lost it. :(

    This was 2 days before in Mexico against a 5.0 Cobra powered Miata.

    The only way to make me feel better was to find something better.....
    Found this in CT and using the insirance money to get it, finance it and have my payment almost the same as my last one.

    i was looking at some less priced ones but they were all either stock high mileage 06/07 or built 04 models. Nothing against them.....Jeffie.....but the Blob eye just isn't my first choice.

    might be best to have it retuned upon arrival, the air is nowhere near as heavy here as it is there.

    i will most likely. especially now that it's cooler. The car attracted me because of how 'stock' looking and organized the build and setup is. needless to say it's a car i will only drive for fun. I've got my 96 accord for daily driving.

    Retune probably won't be necessary with the speed-density tune. It uses rpm and map sensor like a Honda.

    I won't need to a place to stay as long as no delays happen.
    Th plan is to leave in the morning, arrive at 11am to check out car,drive and possibly send it to Subaru for a checkup and fly back around 6pm that afternoon.

    Go bigger or nicer....one of the 2. I refused to drive that Accord as my only ride.
    I'm just one of those guys(for now) that has to have a car to brag about.

    I like the attention what can i say. What i can say is there was no racing or really retarded shit happening when i wrecked it. That I know better. lol
