It’s Alive!


Took me long enough right? That’s what happens when you become a fath…

So the intake manifold gasket wasn’t just cracked, but also warped. The top circle shows a crack at the bolt hole and the bottom circle shows a crack at the coolant port. The middle circle shows the warpage along with a crack in the middle of it… That’s where it was leaking from!

Thank the car heavens it wasn’t anything super serious! It lasted 5 years of daily driving and hard running/redline hitting fun. Does anyone know how long that are supposed to last? πŸ€”

Now to the fun stuff:

PVT RUNR Ian bought my old bucket seat so he came by to install that with a PCI seat mount.


Not bad for a beginner seat. I had to pass it down to the homie cuz I always wanna see my parts go into good hands. And plus, I picked up a new seat that’s big enough to fit Moltar πŸ‘ΊπŸ‘Ή

Just need to get a few other shit done and King Run will be back on the streets…! πŸŒƒπŸ‘»

I don’t ask for much. When it comes to my dream garage, I just want something simple. If I can park my car inside safely and have the tools that are needed for the type of work I perform, I’m happy. This garage is a prime example.

Some times a busy man doesn’t have time in his schedule to do a clutch job. So, he takes it to a reputable shop.

Shop owner words:

“Receipt at the request of the clutch replacement! It is rare in my place, but it is the so-called cyclic group specifications! Even so, that low-Oh! I like to Shakotan, but I wonder if the public road can run with this? ? But, is referred to as a foil of infinite, pot because there by holding, and I think Cool Will it just me? (Laughs)”

One thing I like about working on anything with someone is the things the folks talk about, whether it’s something hilarious or expression to get shit off your chest. It’s relieving. It’s healthy.
