delay delay...

Arrgggh. Kate has been ready for almost a week now but just cos the dyno is tied up with the multiple drag races over the weekend and the upcoming Merdeka Millennium Endurance Race, they aren't able to tune her. Sigh. No point in me picking her up without tuning as I'll be forced to return to get that done. Dammit.

I miss Kate. :(

football season is back!

Woo Hoo. No more bored weekends. Good ole EPL is back. The Red Devils opened the season yesterday with a win against Pompey for the FA Community Shield. Granted it wasn't a winning goal but penalties instead but hey, we can't have em' all right?!

This looks to be an interesting season with so many of the clubs spending big bucks bringing in talented players. Deco, Samir Nasri, Jo, Bosingwa, Luka Modric and maybe even Robinho or Pavlyuchenko. Unfortunately our boys have been rather quiet in the market. We seriously need a killer striker to work off Rooney or Tevez but sadly none in sight yet. Talks are going for Berbatov which in my opinion isn't suitable but I don't think that deal will go through especially with Spurs asking for 30 million pounds!

All through the break there were rumours of Ronaldo wanting out to join Madrid. Fortunately hes decided to stay put for this season. Hopefully he'll give us one more good year and then he can get lost. Didn't like how the whole saga came about and was handled. Yes overplayed by the press and Madrid but also Ronaldo should have stepped up to quieten it down. Instead he actually ate off the coverage. Oh well I guess when you have a big head what else can you do right?!

Three new clubs are in the Premiership this season. We have the Tigers, the Potters and the Baggies. My money is on Hull City who qualified with the help of our very own Frazier Campbell. Hopefully he can help us out this year up front. Okay enuff ranting. Let the season begin. Hope the boys will be able to start off with a win. First game is against the Magpies. Should be a tough fight.

Glory glory Man United!

transformation updates...

I missed out last week but I promised myself I wouldn't skip this weekend. On Sunday I headed to D'Pro with my mate Remy to check on Kate.

She was looking fine as ever. One thing about D'Pro is that they have a spotless garage. Really makes a difference in my opinion. The car was without any oil stains or marks. Apart from some dust it was like how I left her.

She wasn't really done yet. No intercooler or air intake. Only thing done were the piston kit upgrade as well as the manifold and turbine.

The yummy stainless steel manifold. *droooool*. Can't wait for it to be red hot. :D

Can't really see from this angle but its the turbine. Small IHI RHF 4 ball bearing turbo. Tried to get a good angle but the frame and radiator was in the way.

According to Jeffrey it'll be up and running by Friday. I seriously doubt it but its good news nevertheless as its 1 week faster than planned. He hasn't started the engine yet so hope it runs without any issues. Gotta keep my fingers crossed!

PSU it is...

After some tiring troubleshooting. Ok it wasn't all that bad but with lack of sleep and lots of annoyance what do you expect?! Anyhoo turns out my power supply unit blew. So today I manage to run into Digital Mall PJ and grabbed a good replacement, AcBel E2 390w.

Now my rig is running fine. Phew! :D
