What have you done to your Ecoboosted vehicle today?
« on: January 14, 2013, 06:56:36 AM »
I'll start off:
Headed to dyno to install BBK TB and do before/after dynos. The BBK 73mm TB looks like it will fit on the truck and work, going to attempt to see what happens.

Also, sending off stock fuel pump assembly for Flex to Squash performance for a dual fuel pump upgrade!! Now I just have to find a stock intake manifold so that I can start having bungs welded on.

Squash makes some really great stuff!  They are a sponsor and attend the G8 Natl Conv.  In Quad Cities (Davenport, IA).  4th annual G8 & GTO
Natl Conv. is in Sept.

Several of the guys with 700+ HP G8's are running Squash fuel pump systems.

I did nothing to my cars.  But... I installed an EnGenius EAP 350  Access Point in my attic, and an injector next to my modem.  They are connected with Cat 5 cable.  My son will be setting it up via "logmein" or "gotomypc" on Wed.  I would set it up, but my one wireless 4 - 1 printer is quite difficult as you have to get all the address detail entered manually. (Brother MC 685).

Tomorrow I am going to pull my Flex A/S wheels/tires and re-install the Interlagos and Michelin Pilot Super Sports.  Did you all know that these are the tires that the 2014 Corvette will be running?

2010 Red Candy/White EB Flex.. World's first 12 second Brick.. 12.904 @ 106.85 MPH - October 2011

I do that like 3-4 times a week! Black cars look the best when they're clean and thank God for unlimited washes for 39 dollars a month!!!

Yeah it is a really smoking deal compared to single washes at the unmanned places. Even includes tire shine, forced air dry, the final wipedown by hand. Hand wax jobs are only 20 bux after that too if you want one.

Last night, I waxed all the top surfaces.  Then finished up the sides, back and front this morning.  Still have to vacuum and wipe down the interior.

I think you mean Tasca (just watched Bob III) qualify his funny car in New Hampshire (on TV).  I cleaned my windshield and went over the car with Quick Detailer...driving last night left a who assortment of insects stuck on the front end...had to get them off before they baked on...will be doing it again tomorrow AM while there is still shade...we're having great summer weather and it's just nice to finally be able to be out and enjoying the weather.

In the process of shooting my grill satin black. I did the razor bars a long time ago and I've been agonizing over doing the rest of it ever since. This morning evidently the time was right. Now waiting for the third coat to dry.
