    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    You should see the quad piston Benz calipers I have on my Jeep. Punch out 2 pins, push pistons in, put new pads in, done.

    That almost counts as stealing them I like!

    DSP's

    There's only one thing I don't like about it. In all my years of installing (not many), I have never had so much trouble with noise as in my current install with the miniDSP. As soon as I switched to the Audison BitTen, it went away. So for that reason only I would pick the miniDSP car version even though it's more expensive.

    Those look nice I think you could glue it on even if they are wedged tight. Or maybe use double sided tape.

    Shock mounts The shocks have less than 1000 miles on them.

    It's not audible inside Because of a broken exhaust manifold bolt, it makes a tiny flutter sound if I load it, just when the turbo vanes close to make boost, that's the only turbo noise I hear

    Speaking of Miata, I can't wait to get all the new suspension parts. Switching from 20 year old worn out shock mounts to the newer model, which is supposed to reduce NVH and improve steering response and also switching to some fancy MCU bushings which further reduce NVH and improve steering response compared to rubber bushings.

    A couple of weeks ago, I carried something with the Jeep and then I put the backseat up, the music stopped. The BitTen would not turn on. That afternoon it started somehow, I tried grounding the RCA (thinking I blew the internal fuse on the processor somehow) and the fuses on the Zapco (sub amp) blow instantly (90A of fusing). Processor died. Last week I got a new processor, Zapco would still blow fuses when grounding the RCA. Turns out the cable to the sub got chewed up in the backseat hinge and got grounded. Quite the relief seeing the amp is fine.

    Well, if you do visit, you will get to drive 2 NA's. So far ours are identical suspension and bracing-wise. Not exactly the same ride height and geometry. Dayum! Nice work!

    We sent it pretty good a couple weekends ago: That's my Jeep, commentary is to make fun of the other Jeeps in the club who tried it the evening before on 36 inch tires and couldn't make it. The rest of the Jeep club took off on the trail while I was towing an XJ to the meet-up point. So we took the sleigh, a tire tube, some alcohol and spent almost a full day having fun.

    Yeah, the motorcycle scene from that video is a dead giveaway.

    Don't know. The Renault BBQ is in late May. Quick, hide the drugs! Of course! LS swap everything! Some tuners ranted about the modern turbo engines being optimized for tons of midrange torque (at least on German land barges). Which doesn't make them so great for tuning. Soft boiled eggs, soft fried eggs, do dreamy, so silky smooth Hah, my XXX has been in use for longer

    Super late post, but thanks! This actually doubles as a bookmark as I really wanted to some footage of you on the snowmobile

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    Thanks for the compliments guys! It was my girlfriend's ideas and materials choices, all designed in Sketchup. We managed to spend one night there, stopped work at 2AM, woke up at 8AM to continue and that evening the tenants moved in.

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    We should really sync up at one point. If all goes well, I should be in Paris again next summer (potentially with the Miata, taking part in the Renault barbeque / car show would make it amazingly cool). And if business with them expands, I will have to go there even more.

    Here's the kitchen:

    Meanwhile, I'm mad at the guy who built the kitchen furniture in the apartment. I sent him a design to wrap around a big support beam and create two closets and nice shelves. Got the quote from him and then delays for 3 weeks before he told me he won't be able to do it. After I got the invoice for all the particle board from my usual supplier it was clear why he did not want the project. But he should've told me faster.

    Damnit, I arrived in Paris on the 6th. And left on the 11th. No way I'm moving to China or the entire APM manufacturing moves there. We're trying to build as much of them as possible locally : I put diesel in my Miata. Realised it, pulled off the feed line to the fuel rail, ran the fuel pump to empty the tank, put gas back in and happy days. Strange, as I've read that the newer ones have really shitty engines.

    Sweet! I will have to start her off with easier stuff, not directly overhead press, to get the posture correct.

    Even with the practice we're getting, she needs some extra conditioning

    Welcome to the IHoP v.2

    Calling all gym rats Following my suggestions to start working out, my girlfriend bought 2 gym passes. Now, I've got a few plans down for me so I think I'm covered, plus I've restarted light training in the office basement for the past 3 weeks. I'm clueless what plan should I start her on. She's the skinny type and I'd like to go to the gym 3 days per week. Start with some cardio, then train the same groups I'm training? For example: Day 1: Legs + shoulders Day 2: Chest + triceps Day 3: Back + biceps

    Haha, the one in my backyard is going up for sale. Can't wait to see it gone.
