Well, It's been awhile, Figured I'd update what's been going on...

I finally got the NP231 that was sitting in my garage swapped in, I just took the rear driveline to get shortened today. Let me tell ya what, driving in FWD sucks but it torque steers like a big turbo honda

Oh, and I might of found a good deal on a 4" lift in Oregon and other than that, I've just been enjoying it.

You like sucking the heat right out of your engine bay and putting it back in the engine?

It's a temporary fix till I either get a new airbox or a completely different intake. Apparently you can split a factory airbox down the middle by accidentally stepping on it


I'm thinking I want a hood scoop and an open-element air cleaner like you'd find on an older muscle car...

It sits pretty high, so I dunno. That scoop I had on the xj did look pretty legit, didn't it? Hmmm...

Thank you

I got the rain-x kit and it's held up REALLY well. Whenever I wash it I re-apply the polish stuff and sealer and they shine like new again.
