Will do. It might be a bit as I am recovering from a broken ankle. I might be able to convince my son to go this weekend.

I'll let you know...

After ditching mine, I would NEVER go back to a power rack. You'll feel much safer at highway speeds,too (and those times when you go a bit faster ). The car control is unreal.
took the belt off and drove around the block, and liked it. de powering it when the weather gets nicer.

Mine son didn't get out on Saturday but did on Sunday. The only yard open then didn't have any NB's.

He's going again this Saturday and will see what he can find. Let you know then.

Get the Begi coolant reroute- you should do it anyway if you're running a turbo- and you can remove that ugly thermostat housing from the front of your engine and replace it with a freezeplug.

That front housing is fairly ugly, and it looks so much cleaner if you remove

The coolant passage that runs to the engine from the radiator. With a reroute, it gets axed.
