Alot of maintenance. Going to change all the fluids. And yea a few upgrades and going to redo the carbon fibre on the trim.
I have a new lower intake too install. I'm in the process of porting it. May need bigger injectors.
Will had a big mod in the testing phase. I'm not going to reveal what he's doing but I have been trying different add-ons this year in secret. But I will tell you with what he's telling me is that he's looking at 390hp at the rear wheels. Alot to do to make sure the engine will hold.
So I'm hoping he gets the R&D done and I can do what I need to do over the winter.

That is GT mod with that hp must be some serious mod.

I want to try and hit the dragstrip once more before she takes a winter nap. Though with the weather we've been having lately, late november seems possible.

Weather cooperated today. Went for a nice long ride nowhere to get the e85 out of it before it's long winter nap. Don't know how well that stuff stores.

things are not as they appear to be.........

The moment I see snow in the forecast (even if it's just flurries), she gets put down for her Winter nap. So far though, things look good for at least the next two weeks.

All the toys are being put up next week. Not for want of warmer weather, but storage situations suck here in NY.

E85 does not store well. It loves to wick moisture into the fuel, making it garbage in about 6 months time.

Ethanol-free 91 Octane and Stabil goes into everything before I store it. I've never had an issue with fuel following that procedure- even two carb'd V8 cars do fine.
