Pulled and cleaned the plugs, Replaced the coils, finagled (lubed/fought/battled) a tighter tbolt clamp on the new DDM Silicone Throttle Body elbow to cold side charge pipe connection and made my misfires a thing of the past.
(I hope)
Looking forward to a long weekend so that I can swap the new big wheel turbo, new water pump, new DDM silicone coolant lines, coolant/oil change and upgraded trifecta tune :)

just ordered $2000 more in parts,hood,gxp nose , headlights...dam those are expensive.liners and more. and saved almost $100 with the labor day sail by ordering today.and saves about $1300 over local dealer prices I got last week. sofar other than 1 wheel and 2 tires it's on budget....well close to it. thinking about some glass fenders if they fit in the budget...

Water pump, thermostat, new big wheel turbo, coolant and oil change in 108 degree heat.
Put it all back together and she leaked.

pulled the wheel, wheel liner, charge and air hoses, dropped the cat and found the rectangular gasket had disintegrated :(

hopefully picking up the gasket today and putting it back together a second time…

Pictures from a Labor Day road trip. Parked at the Chattahoochee River (major trout tournament in process); checking out the Great Smokey Mountain Railroad excursions; parked for breakfast at Granny's Kitchen across from the casino in Cherokee NC. Yes, we were willing donors at the casino. Cheap entertainment!

Took it for a short spin so that it didn't spend a whole sunny Sunday hidden under its cover. Now it's already resting inside our "doubly aggressive" (!? :sneaky::geek:) and somewhat messy garage.

Took the Mallett on the 16th annual Cruise thru Hell (Michigan) along with about 20 other Kappa's Sorry I didn't take any pictures to prove it.

I was corrected we had 29 Kappa's at the event, I was also able to get this picture of most of the cars parked behind the Midpoint Parked behind the Hell Saloon. Thats me standing infront of the Red Convertible with its trunk open. My car sly Mallett is just beyond me.
