its a littel frustrating but in the end IA just want it done right...

A mate (posted his car a while back) made the decision to get his done after he was riding in mine during the logging on previous motor.. he was there when it popped.... he took his car in that week to get the turbo swap done... it still hasnt been done... he is a little pissed off now... its sat in the exhaust shop for 2 weeks or so... I told him my exhausts may not be the prettiest but I get them done in an evening hahaha

fedex didnt leave a package yesterday just a sticker saying they will try again...... it was either my filter or my injectors... aaaagh couldve got some stuff done last night but alas I did nothing...
