    ...another one

    Picked up a new toy last night. Nothing too fantastic but something I've been wanting for a while, except I would prefer an all white one with black wheels...



    '99 T/A WS6. Pretty stock other than some minor things, stereo and some suspension work. Guy moved up here from Texas and brought it with him, hasn't seen snow yet and I don't plan on letting it. never seen such a rust free car, gotta love the south! I have ideas but no "plans", just gonna see what happens with it. I'm a sucker for T-Tops and flip-up headlights though!!

    Looks like a 13 second car to me... Mission accomplished. HaHa

    Got all the tune-up goods today, as well as synthetic oil change stuff and a trans flush. Car has adjustable KYB suspension, K&N filter, exhaust and SLP kid already. Going to do a couple "free mods" tomorrow, removing the ram air vents, throttle body bump stop, P&P tb/maf. Planning to make it to one of the "fun nights" up at CFR to see what it'll do. I'm guessing mid 13's but I guess we'll see. Then if any of my "ideas" become a reality, it'll be fun to see what it does in the spring.

    We'll see...

    Went to do the stuff I had plans and someone beat me to it. MAF and TB are already ported and polished as well as MAF screen removed. Saved me some time/mess i guess. I did the TB bump stop, surprised at how far from "completely open" the blade actually was at full throttle. Checked out the undercarriage while I was changing the oil, clean as hell, has an extra trans cooler up front, some polyurethane bushings and straight pipes after the cats.

    I got curious and check the suspension also. 1-8 (1=softest, 8=stiffest) setting, front was at 5, rears were at 1, which made sense because my very first thought when accelerating was about how bad the rear squatted. Set them all to 7 and I'll mess with em if needed. First things I'll be doing is suspension/chassis so I can still keep driving it. Any major changes will be over winter.

    You'll beat my TBSS, but we could run em at the shoot out. We'd at least be within 2 seconds of each other. Which is closer than I can get with anyone else in the auto class.

    Don't worry Colton, i'll be right there with you on those times. There is also a 2012 S4 showing up that will be in the high 13's probably.

    Some parts came rolling in today. got a bunch more ordered and gotta get my rear end up to H&W here in the next few weeks. Mostly been working on the Blazer so, this will just be collecting parts for the next month or two while I finish that up.
