I'm such a putz :lol:

Since the dealer already mounted the front tag holder that they mounted with small screws there was 5 little holes in the bumper. Tried to get a new bumper out of the dealer, but that was no bueno. So, I did what typical Euro tuners do...



Shitty picture since it was nose in in the garage.

Huge influence on music.  That's a shame.  My all time favorite of his is Johnny Be Good.

So now it's Chuck Berry and Bill Paxton.

I like that the license plate spells out "RUSTIE".  Hopefully the misspelling keeps it from becoming a reality LOL

Discovered that it will read text messages out when you are driving.

Much fun sending the wife texts of "penis" and "tits" for the car to read out to her.

Yes, I am a grown adult, and yes this is still hilarious to me :lol:

Those are insane shots. But my wallet says no. I scored the 50mm STM for $90 new shipped. And the tubes I got barely used on eBay for like $28

Now if I was getting big buck for my watch photos, I may pick up that Zeiss!

i recommend the Zeiss Makro-Planar 100mm F2 for this type of photography.

It's one of the best lenses I've ever used.

There is no such thing as too much photo gear.  ;D

I know some of those words. :lol:

Regardless it's a very cool photo. It's amazing how much detail can be picked up like that.

Well the car is running pretty smooth so that's a good start but it desperately needs a tune. Just a couple pounds of boost and I see the A/F ratio dip into the 9s.

The PO installed two widebands on this thing - Innovate LC2 and AEM X-Series. Apparently the LC2 is wired into the ECU but the sensor died so he hooked up the AEM instead of spending $50 on a new sensor. The AEM isn't wired to the ECU so it can't be logged and you can't properly tune it.

I just ordered a new sensor for the LC2 for < $50 and I'll be picking it up tomorrow. I need to get the car in the air (off comes the front bumper again...) to see if he tied up the harness for the wideband. Based on what he said, I should be able to just hook up the new sensor, do a free air calibration, install it, and good to go. We'll see.
