Been a pretty crappy winter but I'm back! Car got picked up tonight! Was a trip getting it -TO- the truck and it was just on the street outside my house. Big-***-wide non-snow tires and all that HP aren't meant for snow and ice! Good times.

Car should be to Tony and Fast Intentions sometime next week which is perfect timing. My build slot is just around the corner. Any luck and she'll be done by the end of March. Then I start watching the weather and the second there is a week of sun between there and here I'm getting on a plane!

I think Tony wanted to fly out here and beat me for shipping the car on an open truck in winter! But it survived the ice storm and he was kind enough to clean it up before putting the cover on.

Seems I am learning lessons every time I try and do anything to the car. The last was that the MAFs need to be taken off when selling the intakes. Sold my Typhoons to a forum member and shipped them with the MAFs. I'm sure he enjoyed selling them and making a profit on -buying- used intakes. Had to buy a new pair from Fontana Nissan (which by the way had an amazing price!). $400 lesson learned, joy.

But at least the car is at FI so I need to focus on the awesome to come, right!?

Tony thinks the engine will be out by tomorrow...can't believe the time is finally here!

Update...I've aged 10 years in the last three months! That is all...

Ok ok. I thought I knew pain but have come to find a new level as my car is still at FI and it is June. Might have it for the 4th. God, I hope so. I'm driving my son's Sentra...not even an SE-R Sentra but a 2013 eco-Sentra. Has a 'sport' button... hahah... hahhahohoho... that's funny.

He bought a G35 in Vegas this weekend. We are going to fly out and driving it back together on the 19th so at least I have that to look forward to.

What's the hold up with it? GD they build cars slower than molasses in January so much for having it back in March. I'd be pissed 3+ months and they cant turbo a car, pathetic for a shop to take so long.

Thanks for the update Brian, I was wondering what was going on! Any idea what's taking so long? I'd think that if you were on the schedule for March then it would have been done in March??

I almost don't want to post this...afraid I'll jinx things or wake up: Car is done. There, I said it!

Tony is putting it on the dyno on Tuesday! Flying out to LA to pick it up and drive it home the week of the 20th. Now I have to get serious about selling my motorcycle to pay for it!!!!

Still waiting for Tony to make the grand install and dyno results post! But all I can say is...whoa. Very, very please and can't wait to go pick it up in a few weeks.

While I am waiting I ordered a GoPro HERO3+: Black Edition, a TWM 'Big Type R' heavy shift knob, and have been going over the track days in the area for August and October. Hope there is still space available for road track times at Brainerd International Raceway (Brainerd, MN).

I've also been taking a hard look at the Varis Arising II body kit. Not sure why I never took note of it before. I really like it. My only complaint are the vertical lights on the front bumper. I'll be painting them over! I think I'm going to pull the trigger on the front, side skirts, and rear next week...but I also really love the Fujimura front. UGH! ...oh and the Varis cooling hood. All FRP.

Yesterday was a big day! Threw down the money on the complete Varis Arising II kit. In my previous post I wondered why I hadn't considered it before...well, because it is new moron!

2-4 months...really hoping it is closer to 2. I want to take it to SEMA and Z Nationals.

Will have it painted at Automotive Concepts here in Minnesota. Should have the mock up Photoshop tomorrow. Plan is 40th gray with 40th red trim on the bottom.

So from one agonizing wait (Fast Intentions twin turbo install) to another!

To say that I am ecstatic with the dyno results after the Fast Intentions twin turbo install is putting it mildly. I -really- wanted to see 600hp. Yes, it was all psychological! So when Tony called with the 604hp number I was all smiles.

I pick the car up on the 29th!
