No idea but that sounds awesome. Next time get pics!

On my to-do list, not really due, but figure with a few track days here/there I s/b on an tighter schedule. Thing is that the car needs to be "cold" (95 degree max coolant temp), which makes travelling an issue.

I just did mine this past Saturday with the help of my buddy Runnerx
Took us pretty much all day to do valve inspection + exhaust hub inspection + swap out cam bolts.

Very cool. Someday I'll take the leap and replace the cam bolts, might not be necessary but peace of mind is always good.

Edit: oh yeah found this thread, completely forgot about it. Impressive work, especially since it was under pressure.

Yeah luckily my exhaust hub tabs are still pretty healthy, and I saved out on NOT having to buy a $900+ cryo-treated hub from Dr. VANOS
At least for this time around

It was our pleasure, and we had a great time (I learned a thing or two). That Triumph was amazing: LS3, BBK, suspension, subframe, interior/exterior, and the work on the engine bay--amazing. Must be a hell of a lot of fun to drive! I have to get some good pics of that the next time!

Long time!

What's up guys...been a while haha. Found out in gonna be a daddy soon so I've been pretty busy. But I was just wondering if anyone was going to the Capitol Concours downtown tomorrow. ES has ten spots open for anyone that wants to show up. The spots are between 4th and L. I'm actually off this Sunday so I think I may have to actually come out.

Yellowmasta: I was wondering where you had gone. We haven't met, but you own the first z4mc I ever saw NOT parked. Nonetheless, I won't be there after driving nearly 10 hours with the Adam (aka Dragon) on the June 9 th drive. Take some pics and hopefully we will meet.

Congrats on the kid! Boy or girl?

gferil: We came to the bay area for you a few weeks ago. It's not far to come to Sac for us. It's a short drive if you like driving your car.
