A few people who came last year had a set (there wasn't enough for everyone though) abd they were so handy I bought a set myself (they're also great if you do any of the cruises FIDS orgnaizes)

I don't think everyone needs a set but the first car, last car and a couple in between would be smart that way we will know if we loose anyone during our 2-3 hour drive.

Hahaha

My friend put a duck caller in my external wastegate dump tube.

The first time I went WOT I thought something was broken.

Then I started laughing really hard.

I always wanted to duct tape a duck caller to my (back then, Greddy Type-S BOV)

Never did get around to doing that...

I bet it would sound similar to this:

Cool Important reminder

JUST A QUICK REMINDER, to clarify EVERYONE WHO IS CROSSING FROM (HWY 16 to i-5) it's the toll you need to pay just once to get off the peninsula.

I didn't see an update so please be aware it's 4-5 dollars per vehicle. Please keep this in mind. Hope to see all the returnees and newcomers there! Happy driving!!

FYI in case you're also not an American and didn't know where the hell "Bremerton" is, it's in Washington near Seattle.

People wondering about the octane thing - our 94 Octane here is ethanol free, when I called an American Chevron a couple weeks ago to see if it would be cheaper/feasible to buy my gas there they told me that their 92 has ethanol in it. And yes they use the same (RON+MON)/2 system that we do.

I'm not sure why so many people say that it's easier to tune with their gas. Maybe ethanol lets you advance the **** out of your ignition much more than a cooler burning mixture at the same octane.

It's not just hear-say. For example, during RG's Dyno Day. (barring weather conditions, which yes, i know, i know, do affect a tune), there was an E10 with a tune from down south at English Racing. It was on 92 (presumably with ethanol). It knocked hard at the end of the runs, (coincidentally, so did I)

RGs explanation was that our 94 barely meets the AKI spec, and that their 92 (with or without ethanol, we'll get into that later) is even better than our Chevron ethanol-free 94 in terms of power output/octane. Without a proper control set, it's hard to say, since there was no controlled experiment.

I'm almost tempted to grab a jerry can of US 92oct w/ethanol, CAN 91/92oct w/ ethanol, our 94 w/o ethanol, and the uber rare US 94 w/o ethanol to test, and finally put an end to it. But can't REALLY be arsed about it. I'll also quote myself below for some "theory" as to why it's necessarily better, which I think we can safely assume is factual for the most part.

To add, I've also seen various graphs with Ethanol gas tunes and non Ethanol, and it seems that the Ethanol blended in (up to 10% here) is insignificant harm (people complain about rubber hoses, fuel filters etc) as most modern (2006+) cars should be able to run it no problem. However, it does provide slightly less "power" for consumption, so you may end up with less mileage/peak power, and OL tuning may be required if you switch.

Since they truck their gas further in the states, they actually are a much higher octane rating so over time it still "meets" 92 or higher. this is especially true if you go to the interior of BC. their 91/94 is **** compared to the stuff we get, and you will have to pull massive timing.

the other is that they do have the same rating ron/+mon/2 (AKI) but it would depend on who did the RON calculation as those are often inaccurate.

Just an FYI for those who don't know. The Skagit River Bridge collapsed a couple of days ago so this might have an effect on our journey.

Default Hot Import Night July 27!!!!

I'm just going to throw this out there, but there is a HIN on July 27 Saturday at the Tacoma Dome in Seattle.
http://www.hotimportnights.com/category/schedule/
I know that some people can't make it, but for the people that can make it. It would be a perfect car enthusiast weekend.
Plus, it would save you from waking up soooo early
And for the people that will be heading down on July 28, we could meet at our hotel at a certain time. And head over to the meet, its only 45 minutes away from the meet.
