    I have the part numbers/instructions for the TSB fix on pdf if anyone wants it.

    Got the adapter to mount the TB to the Eaton. Brown Santa is bringing my forged internals tomorrow

    Brown Santa is bringing my forged internals tomorrow. Picked up a long block off CL, and I've already started tearing it down and cleaning it up. Plan B is in underway.

    The dog and I went on our first off road trip in the Jeep today! I picked an easy trail to the beach just to get a feel for what it could do. I must say I was pleasantly surprised, 2wd the entire time, even in the sand. Mind you the sand was frozen solid and I didn’t venture off the beaten path.

    One must pay for an education. Sometimes there is a high price.

    I did this before Xmas but seriously pull out all your AC vents and clean it if you haven't already.
    Must be some serious caked on dirt in Pepper that caused one of the vents to not catch the side tab.

    I'm almost considering going full Export and removing the US spec bumper for a Euro one, and then mounting my plate in the spare tire. But the price for an Export Spare Tire cover is beyond ridiculous.

    Been sick on the couch the last few days so today I fired up the jeep (without the block heater at 10 farenheight no problem) warmed it up for a few mins. Then took it for a long drive to improve the lady's mood as well as mine. Bounced off the red line a bunch of times after warming up then picked up groceries.

    Mine ( the green 03 ) hit almost 5 grand last night about 5-6 times
    Had a code show up, took care of the issue (I hope)
    But had battery disconnected so went out to rebreak it in :icon_lol::icon_lol:
    Miss living out in the country with nice long stretches to run them out a bit

    Ya I usually don't go nuts but if I learned anything from my first car (1996 subaru impreza wagonback) it is drive it hard and you can continue doing that until you sell it or it rusts away. We inherited another vehicle that was a to church on Sundays vehicle and was basically ready to die at 80k. The subaru had around 250K when i traded it in. Just the fact it had never been garaged sooo the engine was about to fall out of the bay due to rust. Ran fantastic though!

    I drove to Reno in rain and slush today. I musta been hit half a dozen times with little rocks or pebbles. I'd hear them smack the window and I'd cringe and worry. My last stop was for gas on the way home. I looked and didn't see any chips or cracks. Got hit a couple more times before I finally arrived home in the dark. I hope the morning is good, with no expectant window repairs/replacement.

    A mixture of Wd-40 and Silicone spray rubbed by a precision q-tip around the outer face of clutch. (a bit slowly dripped into clutch gap area)
    Then fired it up.:gr_grin:

    Sunny day allowed for inspections ++
    [​IMG]
    No leaks on injectors, no cracks in vacuum lines, throttle body now spotless and butterfly oiled at pivot points.
    IAC removed & cleaned the pintle again. Some carbon was removed in the ports.
    Battery terminals tightened, Pcv valve pulled and replaced with oil free one.
    New coil packs were pulled again today, checked for present o-rings as one was MIA.
    No dead critters or bugs found...ha ha..:icon_lol:
