Long time no see

Hey all..

Long time no see!

Life's been pretty busy between work and family/friend events. Still living in the Los Angeles area, working with Toyota, currently I'm the Hybrid Vehicle/2ZR engine family (corolla/matrix/etc) product engineer. Loving it, but it keeps me busy haha

Currently working with two projects, I may update with pictures in the proper forum soon.. But 01 GT (black/black) and 06 GT (red/black)

I sold the Buick back in September

01 GT has a P1SC and ~11PSI through a 3 core intercooler, but is currently partly disassembled to fit a powerpipe style setup, cutting out the fenderwell this weekend.. I've been using a generic SC tune for it (42# injectors and matching blow through Pro M MAF) but after power pipe I'll have it dyno tuned.. Work in progress

The 06 GT has a Whipple HO kit, dyno tune by Greg @ racer's edge tuning (475 RWHP @6300).. 14,100 miles.. Car is pretty much where I want it

On other news.. My sister was just diag'd with cancer and started on chemo yesterday.. I'm rooting for her and she's staying positive about it..

And no, California has not broken off and washed into the ocean yet haha..

What are you all up to these days?

Re: Long time no see

Thanks all! Definitely had some good times in the past

lowflyn - my cars are both 100% carb legal, down to the midpipes its not hard to have fun out here when your cars have a huge aftermarket

Knight -> Buicks FTW for sure, my ONLY complaint with that car was it was FWD.. But it'd still roast the tires on the shift into second and would hang with c5's, camaros, mustangs, etc haha

Re: Long time no see

I guess I'll give all you old timers a little update in my life as well.

I'm finally done with school here in 2 weeks, I'll have an economics degree and hope to go into some sort of wealth management, or investment/commodity trading. I've recently started dating my girlfriend as of almost 2 months now, so that's pretty fun. She can go drink for drink with me and actually BEAT me. My kind of gal... and she's pretty cute to boot. I've still got the Lexus, still have the 600RR, added another bike (88 shadow vlx600) and sold that piece of **** mustang I had. Once I get a job and start having some more disposable income, I'll be looking for another 94/95 cobra to play around with again. I miss my old one every day...

Here's a drunken picture of the gf and I... I'm still alive and kickin'

Glad things are going well for you Zim.

My life has changed a good bit recently too. Finished my ME degree last year and got an awesome job that I love. Month before last I bought a house (that I had been working on getting since November, short sales are a *****), and I will be getting married in November. I decided to see just how many milestones of life I could cram into 2 year period, lol.

Re: Long time no see

A lot of people think if your car is supercharged it gets like 5mpg but being the owner of a supercharged car I can tell you it's like any other car the heavier the foot the lower the mileage.
