Damn it. The Jones vs. Evans fight is tonight. Usually, I'd be at the fight, but the fight is in Atlanta. This was the only scheduled fight this year that I wanted to attend.

Also, for you fight fans. Lesnar was dropped by the UFC and has made a return to the WWE. Alistair Overeem recently tested hot and failed a steroid test. I'm shocked!

Parked outside of the Gun & Knife show down here in AL. Dang.. These guys know how to make even a lil red wagon look cool!

I'm off to go get some more boiled peanuts.

Go to the auto store and get a brake honer. Probably the larger one and then put it on a drill and go to town. That's what I did to my old TB. It took hours and I accidentally went past the butterfly valves and had to fab new ones. It took forever to get it right. I cut off all the air dams and sanded it with 1000 grit then polished it up. If I had to do it again I would take it to a shop.

I've got a bored out throttle body in my garage. It's been there for years. Are they really worth installing? Really seat of the pants noticeable?

I just had a chance to test drive mine and there is a difference even without boring. Using an on ramp near me, I was able to reach a speed about 3 MPH faster than my average.

I did reset my comp, so it is running on predetermined settings. That may have something to do with the increase. I'll find out if the increase is still there after I put some miles on it.

Forgot to ask something. Why does a junkyard charge a core fee?

If you camouflage your guns, you won't be able to find them. Wonder Woman is still looking for her jet.
