Installed new injectors on my Jetta today and also received a tune from RocketChip... Waaahoooo!!! That's a huuuge smile!

And on top of that, I seem to be getting better FE on the freeway than before the injectors and tune! (This may take 2 tanks or more to verify, cuz I'm sure I'll be "verifying" that the power is really there throughout at least one tank... )

Nuttin' better than moah powah and better FE

Spanish air traffic control are planning to go on strike when we are due to go on holiday.

Why is this a smile ?

They are planning to go on strike the day we are due to fly back and we are in a friend's villa.
