    Wow, looks like you've been busy. I wish I had the money to finish my DSM, but Ive got too many other projects and things going on. Good to see somebody in the upstate is still keeping some 1G and 2G DSMs up and running. Id love to come see you run at greer sometime. Ive had my bike out there a few times.

    Well I tightened them all down by hand till I felt like I might be squeezing the coupler too hard and left it at that. I figured it had some leaks since it screamed when I boosted it. I redid the jpipe seal and checked the Tbolts clamps to be tight. Without my blt it was the best I could do unfortunately.
    Also the tb was also suspected to be shot. Me and Jon talked about it one time when he came up since I noticed the plate had some decent play in it.
    If Jon lived closer I would have gladly take care of everyone of those issues. Next time I'll be sure not to let a car leave regardless of situation before those things can be checked. My reputation is important to me. And I would always honor my labor, fixing any mistake at no cost.
    Carolina dyno is a good place. I suggested Jon that he have them time his car for him. Hope all goes well with your car. Looks really clean under there. Cheers

    Well I don't know you im just going off of what I heard from the situation, an physical over view of the car. Didn't mean to bash story sounds different coming from the actual wrencher, but I understand the rush good luck with your business bro. I will say the car was clean when you put it together wasn't leaking

    Yeah that's what everyone says but I still don't like it. I moved here at 5 months old so. I've been out of it too man. About to change jobs, get married, and moved out all in about 3 months time so not much time for anything else.
