There's always little things that catch you when you're having fun. Overall, I had a fantastic day...really enjoyed myself.

Thanks man! It does sound mean in person...even though it's pretty loud...it's a "sweet" kind of loud instead of an "annoying" loud.

The tech was pretty cool about the whole thing...after all that he knows I've been through with this car, he knew I'd roll with the punches. Even though I'm a little bit disapointed about my roof, glass, and hood right now, I've got lots of other things that are going well to balance it all out.

Yes, I have all the duct work, I just haven't mounted it yet. I just need some spare time to sort out my bumper....

And a couple of follow up pictures.

Here I'm strapping in again with the Shop Forman for another attempt at some 2nd gear runs after we removed the hood:
