    I'll try to rustle some up the next couple days......my camera's not electronic but I might be able to borrow one.

    I haven't figured a price yet and it's got about 1/2 gallon through the engine.

    How much you lookin' to spend? I have an all titanium (NOT aluminum) Jato. It'd set you back a bunch to buy it before I send the engine to TNT for the full race mod, even more afterwards.

    "I find that some rims really want to float too so I put a puck on top of each one and it keeps them under."

    That's why I went the ziplock method...burp all the air out and zip it!

    Ouch! Curbs hurt, huh!

    Seriously, if you're only topping out at 56 mph on a Jato 3.3, you've got tuning issues or have it geared way down.
