I'm pretty sure that will work, let me check with my social event handler and make sure I'm not already booked.

I washed it on Sunday.

Plan is to put a tune-up on it, throw in a fresh power steering pump, replace the leaking rear pinion seal, mount the switch panel, and go race the Badlands.

We spent about three hours looking through everything a few weeks ago - comes down to this: The IAC isn't working like it should - it will move a bit when out of the TB, but totally doesn't move mounted in the TB and trying to control idle.

Tune-up will solve everything.

We will swap out the computer, some wires in the harness, and/or throttle body/IAC until the problem is fixed. ;-)

Sounds like we will be running modified at the same time as the unlimited guys at the Badlands race.

And we will be racing Jim's best bud from KOH 13.

Hopefully enough prep is done, because I'm sick of working on it!

Leave tomorrow after work. It's gonna be a long day...

Changing spark plugs & wires is a bitch.

Give me a call tonight when you know your timing.
