started all a week ago when my fiance decided that I wasn't going to miss Gridlife round 1. This amazing woman motivated me to get off my ass and start to work on Sheri everyday. When I say everyday I mean it! After work which is about 11 hours with travel time everyday. Grinding out 5-6 hour nights to be up in 3-4 hours.
Fast forward to Thursday. The night before the event. I was working super late at work. Looked up and it was seven o clock. My buddy was sitting in front of my welders house waiting. Of course he was pissed that I wasn't there yet and left (he was having problems with his own car being frustrated). So while driving home I called a tow truck company and met them at the welders house.
Once the car was back home I spent the remainder of the night getting everything back together, An all nighter. The car was suppose to be at the tuner that night but clearly that didn't happen. Oh yeah and fixing a misfire
Friday mornings sunrise woke me up. with two hours of sleep I start getting things finalized and ready for the tuner. Ended up having to do way more then I thought. Fixing some leaks, wrapping somethings that might be problem, putting in sensors. Clearly I wasn't going to make Fridays practice day but that was acceptable. I headed out to devo tuning 2 hours late. When I got there they didn't have time since they had to get to kots.
So there I was with a car running hotter then normal, stock ecu in, with no help of getting to gridlife. Then I got a call from Mike at Redmistautomotive. Pretty much saying if you can get the csr to me we can get this thing going. So I took him up on his offer and drove the car 50 miles north. Not over heating since I had the air flow I needed moving on the expressway.
Upon arriving Mike knew it was going to be a task then what I was describing. He went over the car and some other stuff needed to be wrapped, things needed to be made. He gave me a true friends ultimatum. He could get the car running and idling but wasn't sure after that but if we do it we do it now. I accepted and we got to work. Then we got to one of the last tbings that was suppose to be easy. Swapping the injectors, got them in the rail and tried installing them on the intske manifold. These were suppose to be plug and play, but yet they were 1/4 inch to high to be mounted. Pkay make something to make that work, then it has about 1/32 play some to side in the manifold. What the fuck? Go on the companies website and find out fuck these are k series inejctors. Instead of making something work that might cause a fire we chose not to.
