Back when my wife, and I were first married she would help me with car work for about the first ten years, but now after 25 years, I guess she just don't have the patience.

... There's got to be more to that story, Bro...

My wife gets it, but doesn't get it. What I mean is that she understands that it's a hobby and interest of mine, but she just doesn't understand why. Fortunately, her brother (my bro-in-law) is equally as into this stuff (MazdaSpeed3), as is her dad (classics), so I have some backup when the topic comes up. I try to spend as deliberately and purposefully as possible and only when the regular maintenance parts cost nearly as much as the upgrades.

She won't let me touch her car though, other than regular maintenance stuff.

No, there is nothing more to the story. she gets her car modded and a little more personalized. We've been together over 10 yrs now, those "benefits" may as well not even exist anymore.

Usually she tells me what she likes. she is better than most of the idiots you see commenting on facebook and the forums. She will actually research the shit herself first, before even asking me. Once she finds what she's looking for, she has me try to find it for a good price. Once we get it, if it's something she can install, she'll just do it. If its something I need to do, she'll help with it. She's helped (I mean true help like wrenching, getting under the car, removing parts, etc...) with lowering the car, doing full maintenance system flushes, camber arms, and some other things over the years.

Here is my wifes car that I built for her, .......................................and still she bitches.



Supercharged 347 Mex block putting out over 600hp to a built C4 trans, with full Currie 9" rear [trutrac differential] Baer 13" brakes, AC, PS, rack pinion steering, leather seats custom made, CD player, Total Control coilovers. Only thing it needs it new paint.

She bitches about the exhaust fumes for which I have some tailpipes waiting for me to put on after I get the SE-R out of the way[Oh, and SHE will be the one driving the SE-R most of the time].



Sometimes I think the older a woman gets the more she takes things for granted.

Women complain all the time. It's just who they are. They are never truly happy or content.

A little excitement today.

I jacked up the car so I could try to find out why the starter isn't cranking the engine.

Here is the full story.
http://www.nissanclub.com/forums/200...ml#post5167385

So I crawl under, and antifreeze starts dripping on my head. This isn't unusual with a new engine as there is generally always some type of leak to be fixed.

Of course I didn't expect to see this!!!!!!!!

Well crap. I can't find my usb cable for my camera. Anyway, it was a lake of antifreeze under the lower intake manifold!!!

After pulling the whole intake I soaked up the mess. Then I found the leak.

It was a tiny drip coming from the head gasket in just one spot. Just a tiny drip. Now when I had the engine at the machine shop I had the heads checked as well as the block for being warped, but everything checked out fine. No cracks, etc.

Now I have the expensive ARP studs, L14's, holding these heads down with Nissan head gaskets that I sprayed with Permatex spray on Copper [ I do this will all steel or copper head gaskets, and its always worked].

You, and I both know how much fun it would have been to pull the head as the whole $%$#@%@ danmed front cover would have had to come off, not to mention having to reset the cam timing.

I ended up "peening" the leak shut with a hammer, and a small socket extension. I also had some AB Edelbrock epoxy left over from my intake build so I mixed a bit of that, and after roughing up the leak area I pushed the epoxy around the problem area.

Now remember this car DIDN'T overheat before I built it [another reason to buy a running engine when you want to do a rebuild]

So I will be running some type of sealant in my radiator mixed with the coolent just for piece of mind. Sometimes, even doing things the right way is no guarantee that it will work.

Uhm, ok, uhm I have a spare intake manifold that I am sending you! lol That turned out awesome! The red color under the hood is a bit much for me especially with a red car, but bro your execution thus far is spot on! I love seeing ingenuity at work...especially of this magnitude!

Anyway, the intake is finished. I tried to improve some of the dead air areas, and improve the flow by transitioning some of the turns into the ports into a better radius.

Here are the pics. Look how tiny the stock tb is next to the 90mm opening on the new setup.

Thanks 4D. I was going to paint it black, but I didn't have anything in black, but spray bomb, and we all know how long that kind of paint will last.
