That is Business 41, right? I'm almost positive I know where Venice Ave is...isn't that right where Venice High is at and right near the hospital?

Sorry for the delay, but I live in Port Charlotte.

Yeah...exactly where I thought...

Back on topic to drivetrain stuff...how do you like you new converter? Big difference?

I'll have one when I do the engine swap, although I've heard it isn't as big of a difference behind a PI engine. Oh well.

Hey guys whats up? I would be interested in doin the JMOD along with you guys to my 94 Mark. I live in Tampa on campus at USF. Would any of you guys that live around here or go to school here be interested in meeting up? Also, does anybody have access to air tools and a lift? I need to change out my bushings in the front end of my car. The vibration at high speed from the worn front end is seriously depressing! Anyways, if any of you want to meet up for lunch some time or come to my apartment and have a few drinks and talk cars, give me a ring at [email protected]

P.S. I am a sophomore majoring in Mechanical Engineering at USF.

Sup reaper, I live over at Jefferson Commons. My dad is in venice he has a shop with all the air tools and a lift he is the one that did my jmod for me. Palm guy the converter was definelty a seat to pant difference for me. you can definetly feel a difference above 2500 rpm when it starts stalling. Kind of like a very tiny turbo LOL. I can help you guys out with the Jmod since i have seen what it is like in the tranny and all that good stuff, but I didn't to the reverse or the OD servo

I have a couple friends who live over in JC. I was considering living there this year but my apartment on campus is cheaper and has more room, so I opted for this. Also, I'm sure you have discovered by now that very little work gets done around there!!! Last year when I rushed my fraternity we had parties over there all the time. There wasn't a day of the week I could visit that place and not find atleast one party somewhere. Then again, THAT IS THE COLLEGE LIFE! right? Well anyways, I'm already havin enough trouble with my courses,... I'm in the middle of stressing out over a calc exam I have tonight at 5:30. I'm about to shoot myself over this stupid sh*t involving implicit differentiationd, partial tangents and derivatives, and of course multi-layered fractions with rationals and multiple variables when you are looking for a simple single lined derivative of just one of those variables! <---- Rethinking the whole Mech. E. idea here!

I'd be interested in goin to the track with u on thursday. I have never been there and would like to see what my car will do. My grandfather also lives in Bradenton so I could stop by his house and visit him for dinner or something. Also, I am interested in the J-mod but won't have the money till saturday when I get paid. assuming I get the parts from Dan by the next weekend,... I would be ready to do it then.
