This better not be turning into a "Jas project" (ie. we don't see your car on the road for the next 5 years)

lemme know how your experience with Island D is... I know the dealership uses them pretty exclusively but that's all OEM stuff


I may have 2 engines for them over the winter/spring


I think I missed some of the thread though... only engine upgrade/repairs? or you doing more too?

The car now has about 150 km on the engine and sits at $$$$$$$$ while the new EMS is finalized and the snow melts.
Stay tuned...

BTW, kudos to Rich and Mike for their patience and perseverance last weekend!

$$$$$$$$ rocks!
