Its about 80% I'll be there. Went to look at this tonight, and its a strong contender. 5.13 gears, Lincoln locker in the rear, screaming eagle carb upgrade. Carb needs to be fine tuned, but she's a strong runner.

Even though I'm still on the maybe list, for the moment, guess what followed me home today!

Image

I emailed the company that made the MySide carb adaptor, for a full install instruction set. Fuel line PSI is way to high at the moment, and its running on both an electric and mechanical fuel pump. Even I know better. It idles great, but bogs at the beginning of each gear, and stalls when slowing down.

Well if it were on the weekend of the 12th and I could get someone to cover a shift for me, this is a real possibility. But if the final date is set to the 19th, then I'm out.

No objections. Just less time to recover from Tecore.

I'd rather not change it. Unless DirtyBacon is 100% in, then i'm cool with it.

Either works for me. 12th would be cool so Bacon could make it. If anyone going is local to me, and has a trailer, I'll ride with them and help with gas. I'd be able to be there for sure, that way. Otherwise, have to hope the father in law wants to go, so I can catch a ride on his trailer.
