I stored the car in my garage for the winter... :cry:
I am always sad every year when I do this but this year it's worst since I completed my turbo setup not long ago and haven't drove it around a lot.

GT28r install last night. Not quite done though, got a coolant leak from one of the water fittings on it, and I had to use a plastic hose mender meant for a coolant hose on the oil drain line.. basically once I get the coolant leak sorted out, I will drive straight to the store for a new drain line, and straight back home to get that plastic piece out. Should be ok..

Went into the garage pulled off the car cover (like lifing a skirt 8) ) and measured the distance from the turbo return port to the oil pan. Then got in my civic and made a trip to gasoline alley and bought some silcone line for the return and had my set of 1000cc injectors flow tested to make sure they are a close match (they were)....then drove to school :wink:

I put some new tires on(Falken Azenis rt-615) these things are awesome. They never want to slide and if they do it is very predictable and controlable. After gettting the tires on I got it inspected, aligned, and drove the hell out of it on the why home from my girlfreinds house. I love these new tires. My car is fun to drive again. Now I just wait to finish my build so I can have more power. :D

I'm about to wash my car and try to remove a scratch my mom put in my carbon fiber hood, which pissed me off really bad! Had my hood leaning against my garage wall, and my mom decided to drag the lawnmower by it and put a nice scratch on my hood while I was replacing my head gasket! Pissed me off, but now I just have to try to remove it and we are good again :) Also I need to remove my front Pass side rim and see wuz sup with my brakes. For some reason that rims is getting a lot of break dust really fast and the other ones are totally fine, so I want to check and see if everything is cool. Also I need to securely mount my tru-boost, every time I punch it at 18 pounds, my tru-boost pops out and disconnects!! :)
Back on the road since March 5th, 2008 :D. Love Boosting again!

It's ***** cool.Would be even better if my car was boosted.

I bet it would make a difference at the track, it would help keep the turbo spooled since it pulls timing all the way to 15* ATDC.I don't know how the emanage does it though

I did something i never thought i would do.... i bought a stock exhoust from a guy on craiglist, painted it black and intalled in place of the big "3inch N1 Style exhaust" because I got f***ing tired of getting pulled over for stupid reasons (ex: lic. plate light was gone, tint on the small rear windows is too dark, was it you the one racing on the boulebard earlier today? NOOO). so the exhaust was not too loud (with the silencer on) but it was flashy and ricey and made me think it was getting too much of that unwanted attention. so ditched it and went back to stock and also got rid of the 16" gunmetal wheels for some 15x6 sentra wheels (my winter wheels)... so lets see if that keeps me away of they'r radar...

on a side note i also switched my solid motor mounts with NISMO mounts and WOW! what a diference, they feel so smooth but at the same time hold the engine very nicelly, no more shaking and no more exhaust sound, i feel like I'm driving a lexus now (copared to what it was before)
