It's not the engine you have to worry about really. It's just that the computer takes time to learn all the details, especially emissions related stuff.

Said goodbye to the spaceship today.
2015 will be the year of traveling for me. Will get back into rallyx in 2016.

Haha! I haven't updated my signature there on the left I think since I set up the site.

I have an LGA 2011 Core i7 as my main HTPC, a Core i3 living room setup, and a Core i5 bedroom setup. I have good PC hardware too hehe.

Yesterday a blue Corvette the same as yours drove by me going the other way. Although I'm not a big fan of sports cars I have to say it did look quite nice.


@FULMTL - hope you got good money for that SVX, they're a collectors item down here.

The turd, as it sits now. ..I'm poor, so I plan on throwing plasti dip on the roof, maybe the hood too, depends. Anything will look better than how bad it is now.

Still, I've owned this car nearly ten years, hasn't broke down once. All maintenance kept up by my own work.









EDIT: I'll get some shots of how it turns out, bad or good.

After! ..Yes, I blacked the little window out. May or may not get pulled over, we'll see.







I think hood and/or trunk are next, what do you all think?
