The gopro doesn't have options for most of that when on time lapse mode.  I can adjust frequency of shots, to .5, 1 ,15, 30 sec intervals.  I'll try that.  I still don't even have the right memory card to record decent video.

 

I don't get any option for ratio straight out of the camera.  I'll have to see what's available for free processing software.  

it may be under picture quality settings. it's been a few versions ago since I've used one.  It's not really a big deal, just one of those little things that can make it stand out a little bit.

I’m still cranking away studying for my PE exam, so the car sits a lot.  I’m just gathering parts to be thrown on after.

brake ducts and an air defecltor/isolator plate for my air intake.

 

 

All the parts to build a diff cooler for my rearend.  GM sold them as an option.  An aftermarket shop makes a “kit” for $1300 that basically what I have below with a different pump. I’ve got $500 wrapped up in parts.

PE exam?  I recall you saying your stomach issues are better and you've lost weight, but a PE exam seems a little over the top. :) 

Alternate post:  You'll never accumulate as many bolt ons as that other LS guy around here...

That's a great perk of it, but it's not a guarantee.  Everyone thinks that's my only motivation, but I've been planning this since 2014, 2 years before I started here.  I've still got the review books I bought in 2014 for it.  Don't worry though, you wouldn't be the first person I'd fire. :D

And Ashley, maybe you know, maybe not.  PE is short for Professional Engineer.  It's an exam to be a licensed Engineer.  It's somewhat uncommon for Mechanical Engineers, but pretty much required for Civil Engineers.  It mostly just makes me more liable for projects I work on, but I could also be called as a professional expert in a trial if needed.

Rats, I thought it you were trying to become a Pontiac Enthusiast. 

Hurry and get that license. I'm bringing you to my trial to prove my place of residence.  I'll expect several spreadsheets.  And a pocket protector.

Maybe it'll take you less tries than your current boss :D

The study books combined cost more than any gun I own.  I'll hang on to most of them, but a few are going to a friend who is preparing to take the test soon.

Mike... Who makes a good trans cooler?

The B&M supercoolers are the best bang for the buck.  Don't delete the radiator cooler, go through it first then to any added outside cooler.

There are a bunch of different sizes.  Figure out where you want to put it first, then see how big you can put there.  Buy the biggest cooler you can fit on the car.
