Clutch and FW are going in this Saturday. My 4.10 ring and pinion arrive at the builder in AZ on Friday and he should have the new diff shipped out to me first thing Tuesday morning. If I get them by Friday (long shot) then I hope I can have the installed that weekend. If that happens there is a chance the car will be ready for the StL meet. I would then still have to have the master cylinder electronically blead, and have an alignment done. If I don't get the diff by Friday then I will be driving the Ford or riding along with someone else.

After the time we had last year after hours I wouldn't miss round two for anything. If I can get the car done then great but if not I will still have a blast. I just don't want to cut it to close then have something go wrong on the drive and be stuck having to tow the car all the way home.

I love how everyone seems to be doing stuff to the cars, cutting it close to the STL meet.

Myself... I just got my V1 Stepped headers and RE Pulleys in the mail . Im suppose to have the tensioners and idler pulleys in on Monday. So, next weekend will be all belts and pulleys being replaced, hopefully an alignment shortly after.

...As far as the headers, I dont think I am going to be able to install them prior to the meet. I would love too, but I need to send my PowerPipe to Jack at CPI to fabricate them in order to mate with the V1 headers. Plus, it is definitely something I want to take my time installing. Also.... contemplating getting them ceramic coated prior to install?? As well as getting the EPIC tune too...


....So much goodness happening in the next few months I can hardly keep my clothes on...

I just checked Heartland Parks site and I noticed that they raised the price of the Touring Club days from $100 to $125. It ends up being $131 after the online fee. It doesn't sound like much but it sure sucks.
