It was a very uneventful drive through the Sugar lands of Florida. Pictures soon.
I gave her 1/2 throttle in second gear this morning and she urned sideways on me in a flash, it seems like this turbo spools up much faster than the old one. The power pours on fast and hard.
I did a stint along the Northeast side of the lake where I was doing 90-100 on empty roads with no one in sight.
Most of the time I was cruising along at 70-80 MPH, on very empty roads.
The little towns along the west side of the lake (Moore Haven, Lakeport and Buckhead Ridge) were pretty rough little towns, although Buckhead had a peculiar charm to it as I rode through it.
It was very cool this morning but, as I got back into Stuart it warmed up nice enough to roll both windows down and open the sunroof.
The car ran like a champ, my only concern the whole drive was the oil pressure seemed high, but then I remembered I was running 20/50 in it now so that is probably contributing to the added pressure.
I have to check the mileage but I am heading towards the home stretch. I hope to be doing some more street tuning with my mechanic / friend next weekend.
