yes, eventually.

I'm thinking the wheels may look small in the photo because of their dark color. In person they look larger. I don't notice the differenc because I'm picturing them in person.

ok im glad we cleared that up

no problem, you're not the first person that's asked that question.

and thanks for the compliments, gentlemen.

Either a single turbo or a mild mannered cam suitable for a daily driver or both. That wont be anytime soon, though. Like I said before, I've to be very careful with bourbon taste on a water salary.

turbo would be fitting to have those headers but for a cam, i still see only 1 3/4 as a necessity

Well, at least it's going to a good home. Mark, is the pollution so bad out there that you lost your ability to think rationally? Why'd you get rid of her?
