Mabye Perg Austria, but for sure ebay. I wanted all yellow to go with my scheme but it was $20 as opposed to $6. For $20 I could almost buy enough gas to drive there !!!!!

nothing more nothing less

nothing more nothing less


a little more n a little more


a little less n a lot more


NOw that the temps are coming up the air density is decreasing: good for the aerodynamic but bad for the performance. Between my home and a flea in SC theres a 6 % grade. Great going down but now going up I have to use 4 th gear instead of 5th. Im still running the blocking plate in front but because of the high IAT the ignition retards to below 10 degrees BTDC so I cant maintain 52 mph in 5th gear. I usually downshift before the ecu shows the downshift lite ( I think it comes on at 6 degrees BTDC)
IN the pic below the SC is showing 31 degrees ignition timing but if I could of caught the whole panel youd see one bar of charge
