well, got drunk thursday and friday night. didn't get to mom's till noon on saturday. got there and mom's basement was flooded from the combination of melting snow and a big rain storm. to top it off, the right front brake was locked up on the duster and was more of a pain than a financial burdon (only a $40 fix). needless to say, i didn't get around to working on the neon till about 4:30. got it pretty far, but still have a lot of work to do on wednesday if i plan on making it to chip's on saturday. then i decided to visit old friends and have a good night. so i only got to work on it for like 4.5 hours.

well a coworker wanted to take my spot in the lame ass bowling league that i got roped into last night, so i got a few more things put together, like half the wiring back in, blacked out the intercooler, and finished welding the last piece of the updated exhaust

well, for those of you who didn't hear... i threw a car show on sunday and we brought in a dyno. now the guys don't seem to run into many high performance gassers as they're primarily a diesel dyno. they didn't know how to read the waste spark and because i'm running batch fire on the injectors, same deal. all i got out of it was horsepower. i'm very happy, even though it's obvious that i need to do some tuning in the top end.

Dammmnn! that's shitty! The wing, and both lips appear to have survived though! Find a clean OB shell and swap everything over :sad:

I wish now that I still had my '04 E-blue SXT- would have been perfect for you to swap everything with. :banghead: Hope that you can get everything worked out before chipdogg's next meet.

well, this got picked up on saturday night. paid $400 for it. engine has 230k miles and has a blown tranny, which is in the trunk. the body is already in better shape than my blue one, but i'll be going through it and it'll be blue again by spring with some much needed mods
