Thursday, Sep. 26th. (yeah like tomorrow) I will hopefully make it down for Sport Compact Only night.

As of right now I have the turbo bolted on the scort, just need to tap for coolant and shim the wastegate down a few pounds. If I can get the scort running without it being a tuning nightmare I will be running 6psi of boost on 104 Racing Blue fuel. I´m guessing we will pull the plugs out of the car every pass too, so there will be alot of time for peeps interested in EGT performance to hang out. Or if your a ZX2 owner, come take a looksy...I´d love to run one of your ZX2 "HOT" models.

Matt, Pimp, Buckler Boy...hope to see you guys there.

Damnit Blade, I would love to be there but I have class Thursday nights. Too bad you can´t do it Friday, I have that day off. I usually get out by 10pm, but we have a final that day so it might be earlier. I´ll try to make it if I can though. I´d love to see your scort in person. Hopefully I´ll have the tail lights done by then too and I can get an Idea of how we will do the 2nd gen lights.

Blade let me know if you are still planning on goin to the strip. The more I think about it the more I think I will be able to make it. I might no be there till 10:30, but I´ll try to be there. How long do you usually stay there. I´ve never been on a thursday, but when I used to race my Mustang on Fridays we never left till the track closed. I wouldn´t mind running my Scort again since I´ve done some mods to it, but I´m not sure if they will let me run wth no bumper, nut to mention all the drag that adds to the front of the car. But I will atleast try to stop by and say hey. I hope more AZ members show up.

Well I drove the scort home tonight with the turbo all mounted up and stuff. Temps went well. Not boosted at all yet, need to hook up all my IC piping.

I honestly might not beable to make it, just because I can´t get a shop to do the downpipe to exhaust, and I dont really think I should drive for 300 miles round trip with an open downpipe.

Tomorrow will be the tell tale. Im pretty sure I´m going to go scort or not. I´m just worried the fuel pressure riser isn´t going to work right and we wont beable to tune it at all. Either way I´ll bum a ride down there.

Well last night we got the turbo bolted on. Oil and water cooled. So all I have to do today is hook up the IC piping so I can run it with some boost. All I have to do is find a place that can do the exhaust and I´m all set...I´ll be looking all day for it though.

3k rpms down the road and I can hear "Wwwwhhhhhiiiiiiizzzzzzzzz" --I´m in love!

Well I got the exhaust all hooked up, and actually picked up a sponsor. Prescott Muffler did a really tricky downpipe/flexpipe piece for me. It took them like 3hours and they only charged me for 1.25 hours of labor. So, if your in AZ you might want to check out Prescott Muffler for some really awesome quality custom pieces. Just ask for Steve or Trevor (they own the shop).

Anyhow, all I have to do is figure out how to get the compressed air into the throttle body. Need hoses, reducers, etc. And a couple brass fittings.

As of right now, even if I dont get the pieces together I want to drive it down to Phx.

Does anyone know if you can race with no bumper...my bumper wont clear my IC and IC piping?

Oh boy... I´m putting money down that says Firebird is going to be PACKED this Thursday. Fox 10 News just did a bit about suped up Civics, and they plugged Firebird atleast a dozen times. They even announced sport compact night every Thursday. You might want to put your trip off till next week. Especially if you aren´t through with the turbo setup. I have next Thursday off and I don´t have class, so I will deffinatly be there if you go next week. They only run till 11:00 according to the news, so If I got there at 10:30 I might be able to make one run, and thats if they even have the tech lane still open. Or you could run this Friday. I think they still let sport compacts run on Fridays too. Well let me know what your plans are so I can plan accordingly. I just thought I´d give you a heads up.

Hey Blade, you going to be at Firebird this Thursday? I might just bring my scort out there. I finally got a new bumper, and I want to run some baseline runs before I start in on the mods I have planned. Also It will have fresh paint, and a new color scheme as well. I don´t think you saw what it looked like before, but it should look pretty sweet now. My bro is painting it for me and he lives in Yuma, so I haven´t seen it since Saturday when we sanded it down. Anyway, just thought I´d touch base with the home crowd and say All AZ scorts report to Firebird Thursday.

Let me see what´s going on. I dont have the fuel system and ignition system in yet. Hopefully I can pick it up the following week. Install it over Thankgiving break time and make it to the track the one time after TG and before Xmas. Let me see if my other friends are going. I might cruise down and not race.
