What do you guys think of blacking out the top of the wing? Maybe bust out the plasti-dip for a mockup.

Edit: When I don't have this ****ing Avenger rental anymore, anyway.

Haha, planning on it. Not sure if it will look right since there isn't a hard edge for the top section. I want to do my wheels a different color, too, but I can't figure out a whole lot that goes well on SWP.

Yeah, 146-150 psi all around, leakdown test went well, too. Not sure what the issue is but she's blowing light smoke at low load on the dyno. Hill shut it down immediately when he saw this. We are hoping that the turbo isn't defective but relieved that the engine didn't pop.

Apparently my VF48's compressor wheel looks like I ran without an air filter and drove through a sea of rocks, or so I'm told.

Haha, the car is actually in for a Dom 1.5 install, they noticed this after they removed the VF48. Still don't know why it's smoking but he's going to let it run for 20 minutes and see if the problem just burns off. Apparently I need an AOS, too.

Also your PMs are full.

Why do you hate it? Also I don't understand that last bit at all.

To lazy to clean out all the pms so it gets full. The aos it vents a lot. So you get the gas and oil fumes... And it sometimes leaks into the car. Since I have it mounted by the firewall! Looking at having a Crawford or one fabbed up.

Oh ok. I was thinking about the Crawford but it's so bull**** expensive for a glorified coffee can. Maybe used. Apparently I have a damn lot of blow by.
