Well I have logged several hundred on a 33% E85 mix.. All I can say is wow... I know this has been covered before and everything but I was just slightly skeptical that this change in fueling could make a noticeable difference. Im here to say it certainly does. All around it just seems peppier. 2nd breaks loose a bit more freely etc. Now this is all pretty relative. Something a little more readable perhaps is that my buddies Stage 2 B5 S4 went from pulling 2ish lengths on from 60-Too Much he now cannot get off my drivers side door :)

Finally got the car washed and waxed after far too long of running it dirty. This summer has been a bitch to try to keep cars clean in my area. Took the opportunity to snap an obscene amount of photos with my sisters Canon Rebel. Here as a few of my favorites. Please ignore the less than optimum back drops on some of these... I do plan for a more scenic local for a photo shoot later this fall. Enojy!

Sorry for the crumby pics.

Big thanks to Gary for letting all this stuff go at such a good price... My car will be much happier when it can brake more efficiently. All that is needed now is: Rotors, Pads, Stainless lines, and a pair of rear R calipers...

Just found your thread. Nice work on the engine bay, and :tup: on the vinyl. And how about that e85!? :)

I like everything except the painted coolant expansion tank....I would keep that unpainted so you can see if you're low or losing coolant or whatever

Coolant tank was yellow and nasty so this was a quick fix... Coolant light will come on if it gets low and i periodically check it just to be safe... I may replace it some day i dunno...

Yeah I know! Trying to decide what I want to do about that. I'm not huge on the OEM look... Thinking about trying something more aggressive looking but not sure what yet... Has anyone here done projector fogs on an S/V70 before??
