Default another fitchburg/leominster install meet?

Hello good new-englanders,
i just ordered my downpipe and uppipe today, and should be at my door by thursday of this week. I would be extremely greatful if anyone would be willing to help me put my pipes on. I'm sure i could handle the downpipe, but honestly, im kinda nervous about doing the uppipe

im located in fitchburg, MA, and if anyone wants to help, or if anyone wants to have a wrench day (or night) i have access to a heated 8+ car garage in fitchburg that we can use.

Let me know when you would be availible to help out, if at all.

BTW, everything is going on a 2003 WRX Sedan....and I figured if i could bribe you guys with pizza and/or beer, i might get some help!!

*edit* Also going to need to flash the car with a stage 2 map...i have a laptop to use for flashing/logging. does anyone have a tactrix cable they might be able to let me use?

Thanks,
Nick

I've never done any of the things but I'm very good at handing people tools and needlessly distracting them. So when you wanna do this?

Nick lets start at 5-6ish Friday and work until were done. I might have to leave at 11 or so since I have to punch in at 6:am Saturday morning, but We should be almost if not done by then.

Brad, Mark, and I did my EWG UpPipe, Downpipe, brakes and gauges in about 4 hours.

its looking like its definitely going to be Saturday. I get out of work right around 4pm, and we can go all afternoon into the night.
Does this work for everyone else?? If so, we will be doing this at the shop, and we can all meet at Vision's house?? (seeing that ppl already know where it is)

if all goes smoothly, i dont see why not

edit: im going to need to borrow a Tactrix cable if someone doesn't mind. Vision - you have one with the correct jumper for the '03's right?? Anyone else able to bring one just in case?

Why dont you ask first before volunteering my house? B!tch.

Haha whatevs. It'd probably be easier to meet in a public place though, cause it looks like therell be some new faces.

EDIT: Hmm..do I want to put my Coilovers and Sway Bars/Links on that night too? I kinda wanted to wait until the spring so I could spare my coilovers a winter.

Looks like this is going to turn out well. I'll bring my tactrix with jumpers as well. I can also bring a set of jackstands. And of course PB blaster.
