ughhhhh. if its not one thing, its another. nothing with the new setup has gone smoothly. i'm constantly running into one problem after another. its so frustrating. something that was supposed to be done in a weekend (not including tune) has been going on 4 months now.... i'm so sick of working on this car. i just want to drift again. i mean ALL i'm doing is a heads/cam/intake/throttle body swap and its been wayyy too much trouble. its not like i dont know what i'm doing, i'm pretty mechanically inclined, but it seems like everything on this car has been fighting me... the joys of a swapped car. end rant.
dang. i'm so flustered right now i cant even spell gas right...

seriously. i'm so tired of this thing... i'm half way tempted to throw the intake back on it and do a burnout until the motor starves its self of oil since the back of the motor doesnt have the osu attached or anything. its so damn frustrating.... then to top off everything, the shop i want to tune my car hasnt answered their phone once out of the times i've called and havnt tried to contact me after i've left a msg. and its not like i'm bugging them or anything. i've only left one message, and have only called them two or three times. i've never talked to them before. just heard a lot of good things about them. i was going to call the tuner and see if he was comfortable with tuning the setup, and see when he could get me in....

ok. i officially hate this car.. so i drilled and taped the block off above the oil filter to place my oil temp sensor there... take it off drill it out, tap it. it all goes smoothly. i'm thinking in my head, this went way too smoothly wtf. go to thread my oil temp sensor in the block off and it breaks. wtf. i seriously cant catch a break.

Only one way to end this madness... Trade me cars! :)
I know the feeling man but as with anything that is modded you will always have issues, at least in the end you can say it was all your hard work and not someone elses.
