    n00b here.
    Definitely making progress with knowing & applying all of the gathered knowledge I’ve collected.
    I used to look at car parts & installs & builds & just dream of the day I’d get a chance to dump some money, time, blood, elbow grease, etc.
    into my 6

    Buttholes over at firestone broke my tensioner pulley bolt clean off inside the block a little over a year ago, the poor thing sat at my in-law’s shop which I’m surprised it only took a year lol
    I bought those little frog bits or whatever & got it out.

    I bought a new red top battery & she started right up.

    So far :

    COBB shift weight & plate
    Fuel pump internals
    Intake / inlet pipe
    GFB respons BOV (I’ve got a turbosmart dual port as well... which one is better ? Is it preference?)
    Grimmspeed BCS
    BC Coilovers
    MOOG sway links

    GlowShift boost gauge dash install
    Made an AUX that clips right into the back of the stock radio
    Accessport install & OTS map

    Intake was salvaged I’ll get a new filter I’m impatient lol
    She needs a lot of TLC


    Uhhhh yeah all in this last week lol been going nonstop

    Kept a fire going & when I got hungry just popped a squat. Open fire is still my favorite method of cooking. Cast iron all day.

    Also picked some of my Carolina reapers

    Much more to come !

    your not going to make 450whp on a stock turbo and that small intake. next concern would be the health of the block. my goal was around 350whp.. now i want to make more. i'm limited by fuel currently. my car is a daily though

    Fuel pump is fun..

    Sway links are rusted together
    Used heat gun, liquid wrench, EVERYTHING

    So I just cut the sumbitch off with my DREMEL
    Ran through my last wheel cutting a silly nail of all things & had glasses on, but no gloves

    Very careless of me.
    Always ALWAYS use safety precautions.
    Lesson learned.

    It needs stitches, but I’m gonna liquid stitch it tomorrow [emoji2373]

    Front BC coilovers installed finally
    Had to cut off the old sway links
    New seats & carpet

    Feels like a brand new car
    She deserves it

    I’ve dreamed of this day for nearly 6 years lol
    Just got the rear to go

    Much easier to take the fork off the strut & swap the struts out & call it a day lol
    Perfect clearance so far, but hopefully have a road test before the end of day tomorrow

    Long night
    Finally calling it
    Started a how to for rear suspension, couldn’t even budge the subframe bolts lol

    They’re soaking
    The car had to be resting in water idk how the hell everything is so rusted down there

    Managed to get the springs out, but eventually you’re just tired & hungry even if it was smooth as butter I was over it lol

    The exhaust is fully welded together to the downpipe unless it’ll come off at the cat & I don’t know it yet lol no bolts [emoji2373]
    Stuck at getting the o2 sensor out of the downpipe on the bottom
    Believe it’s 7/8?
    Don’t have any wrenches that big

    Saved all the change in the parts car for these little hardware store trips [emoji41]

    To be continued ...

    Did you grow those peppers? I grew some hydroponically outdoors and had great results. One plant was 7 feet wide by 9 feet tall in a 5 gallon bucket lol. I had 4 cinder blocks with rope to keep it secured. Had an amazing harvest from it too but when a hurricane came through a branch fell off my tree and cut it like a guillotine.

    The peppers I grew were scorpions and they looked similar to yours. Had insane heat. Most people wouldnt even eat them.

    Klip Dagga
    Ancients used to smoke it before cannabis apparently.
    Brother cousins.

    Little orange flowers pop out of the spikes apparently I feel like Mr. Wilson waiting for the bloom lol
    You dry the flowers & smoke them
    Also called “lion’s ear” which pairs well with mullein (lamb’s ear) which was smoked as an expectorant to help combat that raw tobacco lol

    Pretty decent haul this year !
    I worked with a company called “Food Roof”
    We would lay PVC sheeting down & heat gun then all together to make a seamless seal y’know then build a rooftop garden & I gotta say, some of the coolest shit I’ve ever done
    Even had a chicken coop on the roof of a uhaul building.
    I helped install & maintain 4 of them I bet they got a few more

    Hope I’m not overloading on pics try to upload small lol
    I got some pics of the food roofs somewhere
    I wanna do a restaurant like that [emoji28]

    DWC? I use the Lucas method for hydro. Super simple, only 2 chemicals. FloraBloom and FloraMicro. Basically I do a 80/20 split of the micro and bloom for vegetative growth then taper it the opposite way for flowering.

    I use Rockwell cubes. My friend had started the pepper plant in a soup can under fluorescent light then we transferred it outdoors and added a air stone and air pump to the bucket for oxygenation.

    I learned how to grow because my buddy was growing pot that way for a long time and then we had a few successful grows together. Over time the risk was too much so we stopped and the peppers were the first legal plant we grew lol.

    lol i started growing plants the same way
    Got caught in high school with 2 plants under the stairs
    We had this cut out in the wall that would let you back there & one damn cord gave it away lol
    I was using a 60w light bulb [emoji1787]

    Your method sounds a lot like deep water culture
    Roots hang down into the aerated water reservoir & the pump keeps it flowing back to the top down the roots ?

    Yup that's exactly right. We tried ebb and flow systems before but began to get mold on the cubes.
