At some point this Fall I will want a CNC'd frame for the hood opening. I'll bring it by then so you can measure.

Great weather this weekend. Just off the trailer from the dyno. Last time the ECU was tuned was ten years ago and I have been fiddling with it off-and-on to the point where it was not healthy. Since we know the clutch is suspect (it slipped 10 years ago on the Dynapack) and me having not driven it in anger for close to 15 years, we turned the boost down to 19 lbs and made it reasonable for a track outing. I just need to replace the Spal cooling fan that died near the end of the tuning session and some aged vacuum lines and I'll call it driveable-ish

Drove it on the Beltway this morning. Tune still leaves much to be desired. Was hoping to do a track day this month but that is looking less likely.

Found a handy spot for the fire extinguisher. Here's hoping that the delicate door pocket plastic is up to the task...
