  1. We have had very few cases, but the first positive that I know of was a big Trump supporter who usually refused to wear a mask. He would be the one I figured would get it first. However, one of the people who was most afraid of getting it tested positive was well. No one else in that office caught it though, so our protocols are working. Both were mild cases I guess and they were back to work after testing negative.
  2. I don't have a picture, but this is what I bought.
  3. Didn't work on the car, but for the car. While the spider is still getting some exhaust work done, I cleaned up the garage a bit and installed a tire rack on the wall. Barely made a dent in my wheel collection, so I probably need to order 4 more racks. 😛 I also put gas in the car.

    I don't. Far more gray hair now.
  5. Replaced the battery yesterday as it was dying quickly. Today I installed a new battery try because the one I had in there before was falling apart.
  6. Installed a catch can. Not pretty right now, just testing to see if it works. Replaced the upper engine mount at the firewall as well. That should fix my vibration issue.
  7. Picked up the Volvo and dropped the spider off for some work on it. Started it up and was talking with someone before I left. Go to leave, the car dies. Fuel pump relay. Pulled it out, hit it against the shock tower and put it back in. Car fired up. Need to order a new one. The car has some minor issue still I need to work out.
  8. I have been adjusting the alignment on the spider for the last few days and it should be a lot closer now. Volvo is back on the road. I don't think I can make it down there today to pick it up, but I am off early tomorrow and should be able to do it then. I will have him do some exhaust work on the spider.
  9. I ran an 18t and bent all the rods due to a failed boost controller. A proper tune is very important, but even then you can still do damage. I don't believe the 19t will reach 320 HP at the wheels.
  10. I am sure they will find more illegal stuff he has done long after he is out of office.
  11. Volvo is still down getting the head gasket replaced. He has fixed a few other things that I didn't know about, like the check valve for the fuel tank vapor canister. Apparently I have been pressurizing the fuel tank under boost. I got bumped because he finished up an AWD conversion on an 850R, so now that it is done and out of the shop he can finish my car. I replaced the Idler Arm on the spider tonight. It was completely shot, so I am interested to see how improved the steering is going to work tomorrow. Hopefully the Volvo will be finished tomorrow as well.
  12. It is still unknown if he can pardon himself, and he can't pardon anyone who hasn't been charged with a crime yet.
  13. GTX2867 would do it. You will need bigger injectors than blue though.
  14. Replaced the rear shock mount last night and dropped the car off to have the head gasket replaced. Also having some other work done on it.
  15. Fixed an oil leak, hopefully. Swapped on the winter wheels, which are actually my show wheels but they have the better winter tires on them. Searched for a coolant leak. I thought the new heater core might be leaking, but I pull the covers and ran the engine up to full temp and no leaks there. It might be the lower coolant hose on the turbo, but I didn't feel like crawling under there to investigate. Found out I broke another rear shock mount, same side as the first time. I thought I had a spare but I can't find it, so maybe I already used it. Ordered a new one. There is enough m
  16. You could trim the exhaust housing on the turbo to match it. The spacer does it, but you could do it on the housing itself. I never did it with mine though. Your back pressure is going to be more about the A/R of the exhaust housing on the turbo than the exhaust manifold port.
  17. Finished installing a new header on the Spider. Changed out the starter in the Volvo. Only got 4 years out of the $65 starter off Amazon. New Bosch one installed now.
  18. I would avoid using the adapter if you can as it will put the turbo closer to the firewall. However, it is an easy solution to avoid machining off the raised ring of the exhaust manifold. Most people will machine the sealing ring flat and bolt on the turbo. It isn't going to cause a back pressure issue.
  19. That is most likely an 850 straight flange. It won't fit an S60 turbo because the turbo flange is angled and definitely won't fit an AWD S60; it won't clear the driveline. The upper bung is for a wideband sensor. The two other bugs appear to be in the correct places. The extension in the rear is to fool the rear O2 sensor since this downpipe has removed the catalytic converter.
  20. I agree with Mayor Pete, but most of the US wouldn't go for him.
  21. The majority of the lawsuits will be tossed out immediately. They already separated some of the votes in Pennsylvania and it didn't matter. What could happen are delegates not voting the way the people want. That is another messed up part of the system. What is more troubling is what Trump will do when reality sets in and he actually knows he is out. He has already started firing people again.
  22. I voted weeks ago, and even then there was actually a line at the ballot drop box at 7am in the morning.
  23. Oil Change. The leaking heater core froze my Zeitronix logger, so working on getting that cleaned up to see if I can make it work again.
  24. Replaced the heater core and adjusted the wiper arms.
