We are already down to two or three for sure ins. I still recommend that we just do the BBQ thing at the house and kick it. Its going to be sure hot with tons of bugs and no one has a boat I think we could get a larger turn out at the house too, an probably be more relaxing, but I'm willing to give it a go, I guess.

If the lake were an all day event, you might have people trickle in throughout the day, but with so few attending chances are good the tricklers will miss everyone. Maybe reschedule until more can attend?

That's generous of you to offer up your home like that. I know it was work getting my manifold in, but it was a good time. It was like an episode of King of the Hill. Powr kind of looks like Hank.

I think a reschedule might be better too. Next weekend is looking a little cooler on the 10 day forecast. Or we can just play it by ear and see what happens.

Hofbrauhaus pics. Here is the waitress that left black and blue marks on my *** with a big paddle. It was said that you could hear the impact out in the parking lot. I held it together on the first two swings but on the third she reared back and really let me have it. The wife said my face instantly turned beat red. The polka band was pretty good and funny. They had a beer stein holding contest and they made this poor kid wear that stupid chicken hat and do the chicken dance on stage for his b day.The guy in the back with the black shirt thought it was time to stand on his dinner table and do the Pee Wee Herman dance to the polka version of "Tequila".Food was sub par but with enough gravy it was ok. Beer was really good. Pretty funny time but way over priced.

If you leave it blue, you can tell people it's blue tiger stripe camp for call of duty! See how many people roll their eyes at that comment! Obviously just kidding. Nice looking weapon you have there.

I picked up a 4.0 Cherokee throttle body a couple weeks ago and finally got bored enough to look at it. People here and in other areas if this forum said it would work best if I widened the intake to match.

The 4.0 air in side is noticably wider than the 2.5 air in side, but the bottom halves measure exactly the same. When people said to port match, I assumed the lower end of the 4.0 throttle body would be larger than the 2.5 intake manifold. Even the gaskets match perfectly. Should I still port the intake since they are the same already?

When moving all the sensors over, there is a lip on the IAC housing that needed to be ground down. I picked up a grinding wheel for my cordless drill. It took a while, but I smoothed it down to fit. That little piece took half an hour. Porting the intake would take so much longer. I'd rather not if I don't have to.

Take it to a machine shop and tell them how many MM you want it bored to. Maybe they can put a taper on it an make a new butterfly.

I think if it needs to be bored, I could just get a Dremel and do it myself. I'm just not sure if I have to bore it out.
