Tune up!

Waiting around for the call to transport my car to tuning allowed for the perfect opportunity to utilize such a beautiful day with perfect weather conditions.

Friday night I found myself wondering the aisles of Checker Autoparts, my seem weird but we always run in and grab what we need.... Never find time to just relax and review available products.

In fact, Checker performance stores are actually carrying decent products such as -AN fittings and more performance product by brands then ever before.

Anyway I purchased all necessary products Friday night and spent Saturday morning installing, swapping, and flushing.

Starting to reach high mileage about 130 so tune up was definitely necessary.


  • Tranny flush, new filter, new fluids

  • Oil change

  • Serpentine belt

  • AC belt

  • K&N Air filter

  • Iridium spark plugs

  • Performance spark plug wires

weekend plans

Defiantly plan on doing work and finishing the engine compartment.

Once intake manifold and all piping are installed the car will be shipped to tuning.

The moment will bring a tear to my eye- no homo.

will update as often as possible.

The bay

The last few months have sucked!
  • been with out my car
  • no work was being done though paid for
  • school is boring
  • still procrastinate
  • each week went buy and still no car

Not to mention I haven't driven and fast, fun, or exciting car in at least 6 months.

The closest thing I got to fun, fast, or exciting was sitting in the cockpit of the fully built cosworth 06 STI. Such a beautiful ride...

Finally I was able to tow my car home Saturday. Best day ever-this week....

Today we reassembled the head components. Plan to completely reassemble engine bay and drive train by Saturday night, working on project between full time work, full time school.... Who needs sleep when you can drive fast?......

back together again
