Played with my pops and bangs map on EcuTek. Sounded cool and also shot some flame's according to my friend who was behind.

My thought is, this can't be good for the car but I'm sure people run that map all the time so how bad can it really be?

I managed to get the Z winterized and into storage. The only things I didn't complete were the oil change and to put the cover on the Z. The cover goes on tomorrow. The oil change will have to wait until spring.

Dropped by Austin Z Clinic today and the owner Kevin put the car on the lift rack to see if the power steering pump and lower control arm needed replacement. Of course, the dealer is full of sh!t and not needed at this time. He did recommend transmission fluid and spark plugs replaced since car has 103k miles and no telling the last time the previous owner did either if at all. I just got the car about 4 months ago and want to bring it up to date and continue using it as my DD. I work into late in the night and can not have a breakdown in some of the shady areas where the clinic and the hospitals are located. Both jobs will be done by Kevin next week.

I drove with a lead foot today... Well, I always do, but more so today. Bunch of morons on the road or something.

First, on my way into work this morning, I pull out in front of traffic and nail it. 1st gear gripped and I took off hard, 2nd gear however lit up the tires and I roasted them for quite a bit up the road, rpms hoovering around 7k the entire time! Looked in the rear view and saw the traffic way back there behind me driving through a white cloud of smoke. LOL

Then on the way home tonight, lightly raining out, no one out on the road in either direction, I took off at one light, rolled into the throttle in 1st, then gave 2nd and 3rd hell! Had a tail happy Z for probably close to a 1/4 mile, at about a max of 50 mph, which is the speed limit anyway.

Yeah, I love my Z... And my one brother still can't understand how I barely manage 200 miles to a tank! Hahaha

Exactly!

And I'm not one to go ripping up tires either (pointless and a waste of money). But since the ole' girl decided to let lose in 2nd gear for no reason, I decided to go along with it and let her do her thing.

I really need to get her on a dyno sometime and see what she's making. She's got some power under the hood for sure.

The last time my brother drove her (he had the '16 Magma Sport 6-speed), he said she feels like she's in attack mode all the time, always eager and ready to pounce at a moment's notice. He said his Z felt like a Cadillac by comparison. LOL

And I've just realized something. Over all the years and vehicles I've owned (close to 20), I have NEVER referred to any of them as a "he" or a "she". Hmm...

Yesterday was the dreaded "putting the car away for the season". It only takes about an hour to rearrange the garage, wipe her down, put on the wheel dollies and battery tender. My wife helps me push it into position, I throw on the cover and now have to wait about 5 months.

At least we can park our other cars into the garage as the "snow season" is upon us.

Was doing a general end of season detailing on Saturday and happened to be under the rear on replacing the brake bleeder caps that rotted off. Saw my diff bushing blew... Looks like I have my winter project already lined up.

Default Philips CBI Bulbs Installed

Finally got around to installing the Philips CBI bulbs

Install = Easy. A lot easier than I thought it would be and my mechanic level is about a 2 outta 10! Was easiest to use the stock jack, turn the wheel, lift the side up just a bit, allowed for plenty of room to get in there (midget hands would have helped)!

Excited for my first night drive. The stock bulbs really go to crap after that 4.5 year mark it seems (maybe I'm just getting old).

Tip: Use your cell phone to take photos to ensure you have the bulb oriented the correct way, stupid clip thing seated correctly, etc. That removed a great deal of frustration in the process. A headlamp helps a ton as well. Bulb has 2 notches, one at 12 and 1 at 1 O'Clock positions.
