I still say you should paint the wing's pillars a black color to match your wheels at a minimum. That would also give the illusion that it's closer to the actual body of the car. Would be nicer looking if it was a few inches shorter too, but I'm not a asking for a miracle.

Did you ever get a 255lph fuel pump? What happened with the nuts?

yea i have had the 255 fuel pump for along time.

the nut's b@m sent where just regular plain old nut's.

they need lock washer's and loctite added.

no dave i can't make it to the shootout this year.

I don't have the cash or day's off to take. I will be there for 2012 shootout though. I had fun at the last one. even though my car decided to be a douche.

Are you going to be at the shop anytime tomorrow? Since it's right down the street from my house I was thinking about maybe swinging by it and seeing your bird.

I'm really hoping he can get it tuned with the diablo software. I'd really like to see some QH BS go away

What QH BS? Sure there can be some glitches with initial setup, but you can't beat real-time data logging to help dial in a tune.
