To:Granny From:Me

At the April GTG, you shall get the win. I want to make this public now.

A few weeks back I did more damage than I thought during a hard run.

Multiple bent push rods, multiple cracked rocker arms (looks to have stress fractures, I'll know more when I pull them), turbo damage (metal on metal sound when turbo is spooling down after shutoff, 1/8in play on shaft). She will BARELY hit 30psi now and it sounds like a German dive bomber when she does hit higher boost pressures.

I have committed to the purchase of several exterior parts for the truck. Because of this, I doubt she'll be able to race this April. But, I'll try my best. January hasn't been a good month.


If anyone has any smart a$$ comments, go ahead. But I'm pretty sure you'll get slammed by more than just me.

She will be running in some sort. But, she is detuned. With the tame tunes Tony wrote for me (to help with some trans issues), she *MIGHT* hit 400-420hp. So, I'm BACK where I was last year.

She can still beat a innovated tuned 6.0 since the damage, but it's a close race (truck length or 2).

Long story. I told Wildman what happened. I think I'll keep it at that.
