I keep on waiting on it to! We all kind of laugh about it around here. Part of it has to do with the rock solid tune by Doug at TopSpeed, but even he just kind of scratches his head at it. The reality is that it is going to go at some point...even at these levels. I have a plan in place for when that happens but up until now (knock on wood), everything has been flawless. I almost hate even telling people because it gives them the false assumption that they can build up their car and not have to worry about a motor...which is not true no matter how awesome your tuner is.

I'll just keep running her! No sense dropping a new motor in right now and putting miles on it when I can keep at this one. Doug even drove it yesterday and was smiling at how smooth it is right now. It is just a wicked fun car.
