    Morris fab killed it! Just got my low profile trans shifter brackets in! What a nice piece! I’ll post a pic later when I put it on the car!

    Amazing I love it man! I have a couple questions of you don’t mind? How do you get your cold starts to fire right up like that, and what do you do for a living that you learned how to do everything like that? You are a true inspiration and I feel like you have some real talent.

    The reason I ask about the cold starts is because I’m running a q45 throttle body on a Magnus manifold and e85 with a gm maf and it seems like every since all that my cold starts take for ever!!!

    hey thanks! cold starts are a little tricky LOL honestly i sit in the car and throttle it until it idles, and with e85 i know the problem is even worse, there is no real way to fix it unfortunately. i have my own business as a mobile car mechanic, uniteddiscountauto.com thats my business, but i learned most of my stuff from trial an error LOL and i learned a lot about my dsm from this site! and run speed density its way better!

    i cant wait till its done!!! i will post every time i go racing!!! :hellyeah::thumb::thumb:
