I swapped out the stock shifter for a Mookeeh short shifter. :)

I also broke part of my center console in the process... <_<

What about everyone else?

I disassembled a four bolt axle LSD to clean up and drop 3.90's into for my flatty.

I also soldered up a bunch of circuits for the megasquirt that will power it, along with making a couple of patch cables between the factory wiring and the MS.

And I punched some holes into the strut top gaskets Tye made for me just to see how they looked.  D2's for the flatty!
Now selling true plug and play megasquirt!  Absolutely the best value in stand alone ECU's out there.

Um, cursed at the thing for still burning oil and not being able to figure out why. Loose my apartment keys in it only to realize they must have fallen out when I got out. Gone. And I drove it to work.

Glad everyone else is doing much better.

I looked at mine several times today.  Left rear tire is losing air.  Non stop rain.  If this was snow we'd be buried bigtime.
