So.....I thought I had sprayed a 75 shot with the .38 NOS jet I found in a local parts store.  The outside diameter of the jet was ever so slightly smaller but still fit.  Anyway, wanted to get the perfect diameter jet from Zex, called Zex and first wanted to confirm a 75 dry shot is a .38 jet....no it is not they said.  Its a .40 jet.  I assumed it was as a 50 dry shot js a .32 jet.  Interesting that a 35 shot is a .30 jet.  So I didn't spray a 75 shot.....with the dry shots I believe its a different jet chart they look at...and they didn't show an amount for a .38 jet on their chart....65 shot?  Dunno.  But I'll have the .40 jet by Friday.

Congratulations, could not ask for a better gift :D  You will put to use superpowers that you never knew you had!


My wife gave birth to our first child 9/27. A beautiful baby boy. I haven’t been this exhausted, tired, proud, excited in my life.

Congrats!

How incredibly cool. Time will go by so, so incredibly fast. Treasure each and every moment. Good, or bad. The latter coming in their teens.

Wife and I recently became empty nesters and I still often wonder where the time went.

Enjoy and revel in the life you created.

Thank you both very much. Everyone that’s has kids tells me how fast the time goes by. I mean he’s 3 weeks today. It feels like just yesterday we hoped in the car and were headed to hospital. The super powers are for real. I didn’t realize how little sleep a person actually needs to function. It’s rather impressive lol.

Anyone try this home powder coating system out? Seems like a bargain, and all of the Youtube videos I find of it is turning out great looking powder coated parts.

Looks promising.  Wonder what their definition of "extremely durable" is.

Good article on How Do You Break in a Car’s New Engine!! What About the Motor Oil. I found it interesting LMS was mentioned in this article! TOL. Z

Further ensuring a proper break-in, (Livernois Motorsports) puts special oil in all its rebuilt engines. This is just another way of ensuring they offer the best product possible to their customers.

For factory-fresh vehicles, this usually isn’t the case. Accordingly, Schropp recommends early oil changes to help flush any undesirable metallic bits out of an engine’s vital circulatory system. A lot of that cruft is “going to get caught in the oil filter,” he said, but still, “I would change it after the first thousand miles.

Regarding Livernois I can't agree with this: "This is just another way of ensuring they offer the best product possible to their customers."  To each their own i suppose.

LOL @ the so called "special oil".

Just like so many other things associated with that vendor, I wouldn't place much weight in any of their advertising fluff.

We all know better now. Myself included.
