  1. It has a HPFP and LPFP and is now running on E72
  2. The Big Canoe Car Club had a little gathering that we went to yesterday, and I managed to capture a few pictures. Big Canoe Car Club - 05/01/21 - Google Photos PHOTOS.APP.GOO.GL 61 new photos added to shared album
  3. Washed both cars today so that we can take them to the Big Canoe Car Club meet tomorrow. It's getting there... just a few more items. The guy that did the painting did a great job matching everything up. He painted the bumper cover, hood, and both fenders, and also fixed the pits etc in the front splitter. The new grills are installed and the "V" emblems have been ordered are getting replaced along with the ATS in the rear (black). The car will get a ceramic treatment and the roof and mirrors with get wrapped black, and hopefully it will be done the week after next. Since there i
  4. Got the wife's car back from the painter today (Russ Cowart) and he did an awesome job! He painted the two front fenders, hood, front bumper, installed the two front grills, and refinished the front splitter. Now we have to get it ceramic coated, clear wrap the front of the car and rear bumper cover, wrap the roof and mirrors black, and finish changing out the emblems. All the chrome is gone except for the ATS letters and the three V emblems and those will be changed soon. Then it's off to get the wideband sensor and XDI translator installed and get it re-aligned. Love the black gri
  5. We took the wife's car to Russ Cowart for the front end painting. I stopped by on Friday to get some pictures of the car and take a look at what he's done so far. By looking at these pictures, you'd think the car had been in a wreck. 🙂 For reference, here's before. And this is now. It's a three stage paint process, so it's more difficult to get right than a single color paint, and the big reason I took it to Russ. After the paint is completed, we're going to take some additional steps to protect the finish this time. The car w
  6. It is in the shop right now, I'll be making a new post shortly.
  7. Yes, this is the one with Turbobay turbo's.
  8. The wife was taking the car out yesterday and I wanted to get the exhaust sound. But it's still a phone so it is what it is. It actually sounds pretty good through the music system that's attached to my TV. You may hear a little "clink" sound as she starts up the hill. We think there is something in between the wheel and tire that is moving around. The guy that is doing the paint work is going to look at it. As she backs out, you can see that the hood is a little scared up and the front end pitted. He's also going to try to sand the splitter and try to make it look close to new. The exh
  9. We got the wife's car back two days ago with the new wheels/tires/springs on it. I drove the car today for the first time and it rode great. The alignment is not what I would have specified, so I'll get it back to the alignment shop in a few weeks. We drop off the car again on Friday to Russ Cowart at HOME | cowartcustoms WWW.COWARTCUSTOMS.COM to have the front painted and to installed the front grills. They will buff out the rest of the car, and at some point will probably get a ceramic treatment on it. Before we do that we'll have the roof wrapped in gloss bl
  10. We were suppose to pick up the wife's car today but it won't be ready until tomorrow, so I got out and washed the car instead. 🙂 Yes, it was a little cold but the sun was shining and I had 120 degree water to work with, so not a problem. I finally got to put my foot in the gas briefly since it was dry outside today, but I wasn't logging the car at the time, but MAN... this thing is making some serious power now. 🙂 I'll get out tomorrow and log it and see how it's doing. I have about 3/4 of a tank of E62 that I'd like to run down as low as possible so I can add about 13-14 gallons of E85
  11. Picked my car up at noon in the pouring down rain today. The new Michelin's are now on the car. Since I couldn't get the Falken tires that I wanted, I got the tried and true tire. But this time I went from a 265/30-19 to a 275/30-19 in the front and so far I haven't noticed any rubbing except in a tight parking maneuver which I can live with. There is no more room in the front or rear, so this will have to do except for a stickier tire. While the car was there, the new stainless brake lines were installed as well as new Porterfield R4-S front and rear pads. Since everyt
  12. Dropped of the car at Balanced Performance Motors today. Tomorrow I'll pick it up with new Michelin PS4S tires, new brake pads, new brake lines, and a brake flush. I'll do my best to run it out of gas before I bring it back home as I need to fill it up with E85 so I can finish the tune with Justin. When I pick my car up, we drop off the wife's car so they can install my tires on her new wheels and install the new Swift springs and hopefully we can have hers back on Thursday. I'm on my 11th tune file with Justin. We're going to throw as much E as we can to see how much power it will
  13. Well... another setback. I can't get the Falken RT660 tires until June since there is a nationwide backorder. So in the meantime, I've ordered another set of Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires and they will arrive Friday. Of course that means I don't get any work done to the cars this week, so we're now looking at next week before we can get all of the wheel/tire/suspension/brake work done to both cars. I did go ahead and order a 275/30-19 for the front, and that new size will be going on my car to replace the 265's that are on there now (those go on the new wheels for the wife's car). Sooo... we'l
  14. I took my car to Atlanta Motorsports Park last Sunday for my first day at the track with the car, and my first time at that track. It was a blast! The car did very well, I really could not have been more pleased. You can tell that the engineers spent a lot of time sorting out the cars track capabilities, as there was nothing that it did wrong and nothing unpredictable about the way it drove. I was impressed. The 300 treadwear Michelin PS4S's actually did really well, they had a lot of grip and showed no real handling quirks whatsoever, and the alignment seemed to be spot on. The only iss
  15. I took my car to Teddy Knisely last Friday for have the low pressure fuel pump, high pressure fuel pump, flex fuel sensor, and AER wideband sensor installed. The LPFP is installed and working as well as the wideband sensor, and he is installing the flex fuel sensor and HPFP tonight, so hopefully I'll have it back tomorrow. I'm still waiting my tune file from Trifecta that I requested last week, so can't put any E85 in the tank until I get that. This is the new low pressure pump and old pump. The gauge for the wideband sensor is going behind the little door where the ci
