    I'm in 500/600!!!

    That is right...we did some datalogging tonight with some runs that were NOT WOT...that is right, no WOT...she is ready to break in now.

    Just want to give big thanks to Mustard, Tony, Torrie, and the rest of the guys @ Hurricane Performance in Jacksonville, Fl who surprised the crap out of me for doing this...as I just dropped it off for some exhaust fixes!!!!!

    Of course my baby (Amber) for taking the truck back and forth, and washing her in my absence....Thank you!!!

    588/641 on 22's!!!!

    I know Oki and I both can't thank everyone enough who was involved in this. Everything from me taking the truck over to hurricane today to do some replacement work on the exhaust gaskets since they were leaking, then an hour or so later getting the text to come get her she's done, to everyone getting together tonight and putting her on the dyno to get break-in runs on her.

    I know I'm still in shock at the numbers she put down for being break-in runs, with NO WOT runs, and nothing over 5k!! I can't WAIT to see what kind of numbers she is going to put down after the break-in period is over.

    I'm so freaking giddy right now it isn't even funny....I haven't stopped grinning from ear to ear for the past couple hours. I just keep watching the vids over and over again. She sounds AMAZING!!! What can I say it's been a LONG, ROUGH, road for Oki and I both with our baby but after tonight those 8 months were completely and totally worth it!!!

    Unfortunately Oki has to work tomorrow so I will be anxiously awaiting the call to go and pick the truck up tomorrow from the shop and take her for her first drive at 588/641. (JK babe) I know there will be tons of pics and vids to come.

    Once again a HUGE thank you to Hurricane Performance, Tony, and Torrie for all that you guys did tonight for Matt and I both....We really can't thank you guys enough and we are happy that you all got to be a part of this.

    Not sure what is going on with that?

    I was getting screwed around by the guys at Muffler City and they were rude to Amber, so our buddy Josh told me that another buddy of ours actually is co-owner of Hurricane (Tom aka Mustard) and he would take care of the exhaust leak and I was surprised/shocked that they took it upon themselves to do the data logging and refining the tune.

    Was just about to call you and tell you that she is ready to be picked up.

    This was just for the break in tune to do some datalogging...no WOT runs. The only driving I have done is probably a total of 100 miles so far, if that.

    When the break in is done is when we will really do some full dyno runs to see what she really can do.
