    Yeah, I can't wait. Already considering a 4 door (Raptor) family hauler.

    If you cracked the iron block because of hp/tq, I can only imagine how bad it would have been with an aluminum block.
  3. The virus

    I think I had it.... Never went back for another test though. I went through a 2 to 3 week period where I was soooooo run down and tired. For a solid week, I could hardly even get out of bed. I never feel like that..... I took handfuls of vitamins and drank energy drinks just to get the energy to get to work. I can only image what I'd felt like if I hadn't took vitamins and energy drinks. And as a side note, I hardly ever drink energy drinks; maybe once or twice a year when I'd had too much to do to sleep in a day or two.

    Got the Nitto 555RII DR’s on! Should do better than the Continental DWS 06's.

    Well, time to fix a few issues and do a couple mods. First, I'm replacing that POS VARARAM turbulent heat sucker. From all my reading, it looks like Cold Air Inductions makes about the best power if I use the JRE scoop.

    I'm just glad we didn't lose any posts and all.... One of my "things" is wanting to keep the history going.

    We’re back up and running now. Some asshat hacker had tried to inject malicious code in to our forum, but failed. As a result, it screwed up the site and broke it. About $500 in security upgrades, and we’re back. Site has been cleaned professionally of all malware. We still got to update the forum, move to the new server and then connect to it and our new https. The aforementioned issue held us up from getting all that done.

    Got in touch with our host, GoDaddy. We’re having them resolve the issue, but it’s going to take about 9 more days to move the entire forum to a new server. Once we’re moved, I’ll complete the forum update to the latest version. Thanks for your patience, everyone. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    We’re having issues with the forum through browsers like Google, but Tapatalk still works. We’re working to resolve it now. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    That's my regular work day, so I'm out. The following Saturday might be doable.

    Why wait so long? Is the shop that much better than others with a shorter wait? How about Shacklett?

    Installed a Console Vault in the Tundra today. Issues: What should have taken about 5 minutes to install took 3 hours. (1) Bolts were too short length wise, so they didn't have enough threads to bolt down the vault with. (2) Bolt head and washer too small, so they dropped right in the holes drilled in the vault (nothing to hold it down with). (3) One of the two holes in the vault was not drilled in the right location, so the bolt would not thread in to the truck. I had to hunt down longer bolts, bigger washers, drill out the bolt hole and vacuum it clean. I still got to cut the floor liner as it was cut stock size and the vault is obviously smaller since it fits inside the console. Now that it is installed, it's fine. I like it. I think it'll stall any smash and grab attempts.

    Hose or radiator? Hate to see that..... Something always get's in the way of having fun, ehh?
  21. The virus

    I had a Lieutenant and a Capetian get it. The LT got pneumonia on top of it and was hospitalized and quarantined. He said his blood O2 was rock bottom and he was on oxygen. He was out for over 3 weeks. We had one other hospitalized, but she is at home recovering now. Others are OK now as well, so zero deaths.

    Ahh... That flew right over my head.
  23. So what are your ET goals this year for the 1/8 and 1/4? Last year, my best 1/8 was 7.6 at 93 mph and 1/4 ET was 11.7 at 118 mph If we go by my last dyno n/a then it was with 442 rwhp. I'm going to shoot for mid 10's this season with DR's. If I do better than that, it'll be a bonus. Current dyno's are 723 rwhp pump and 760 rwhp E85. Weight with full tank is probably closer to 4200lbs with the blower and external trans cooler / larger trans I've added.

    I've been going to the same Speedway here in Old Hickory / Hermitage ever since I went Flex. I don't manually test, but my log always shows over 70% E in the warm to hot months. Highest I've seen in 78% E.
