What about fuel rail covers? Do I need to remove them before I get there? Same goes for the plenum cover?

It would be a slight inconvenience for all if I had to strip my car in front of twenty other guys !!

I'd rather do this at home and make surer the under part of these places are clean..

But look at the thrill the guys would get.....

Yes I would remove the fuel rail covers, but not the plenum.

Mine just lifts right off now. I don't even have it bolted to the TB. The hood keeps it in place just fine.

If you can't access the coil harnesses, yes they would need to come off...

I stopped by the speed shop today and the owner said it was a little inconvenience, but they could lift them a little.

I think I am going to take them off,(at least that side) so they do not scratch the paint.

The guys at the shop are really nice. They expect to dyno close to 20 cars at no cost..

Anything to make it easier is better. Plus you don't run the risk of them breaking them.

9 am, Houston, Dyno day? Sounds like you guys will be at Strictly Performance. I'll be there myself. I have to finish putting my car together and run it a little bit.

I'm also going to be setting the suspension up.

I'll probably be dynoing my car this evening when everyone leaves. I got some tuning to do.....

Eric it was a pleasure to meet you and see ALL your great cars. I still think you should be ashamed of yourself for having that car in the same building with ours . Talk about feeling inadaquate. All kidding aside I love your car and when mine grows up it wants to be just like it. Had a great day and a new experience.

Glad to meet you guys!

We finally figured out what the problem was with the idle.......we had swapped the O2 sensors around!! Took as little bit but Richard figured it out. Purrs like a kitten now!
