I'm going to try to make mind less of a piece of ****. I just haven't decided how far to go. advice hasn't gotten back to me about my offer on his ported head. If I get that head I will have Tjolley set it up for cam crank trigger to start my pursuit to standalone ECU. Or I'll just fix the minor things and run it till it flys apart and go standalone then. My tune is such garbage though the car is no longer fun to drive down the street because I have to modulate the gas pedal to keep it running at stop lights.

Probably not, my winter consists of installing the lower cp and zzp fmic I got from nova. Then I haven't decided how yet but I think what im gonna do since Novas exhaust is in such better shape than mine is use my exhaust for the z06 muffler project and rebuild his with my factory muffler for the future if I dont like it and wanna go back stock. As far as tune, nah no more than gms1 for a long time if not forever.
If I like how the exhaust sounds then ill use his as a template to make another from the larger pipes I have here. Not quite 3 in but is really close.

Also will be pulling the bumpers off and doing some rust removal and prevention. I have been using rustoleum rust reformer and its working really well. Esp in the seams. Hopefully hawk comes back someday so I can send my spare intake to get powdercoated

I think I'll repaint my trim and do a better job. It's wrinkling on my center console. I also have to repaint my rims, but that will also be done in the spring. No point doing all that prep just for it to be wrecked in the winter.

I'm surprised they held up as well as they did though. I just need to find a glossier clear coat.

I need to source a set of mint lnf wheels someday, that way I don't feel bad when I paint/powder coat my wheels. I wish the po was more careful around curbs.

Mine is a de-build- most of my parts are off, but still have to swap the trans out and the harness bar.
I'm then going to dive back in on the nova and try and get it at least driveable by spring.
