If all the stars fall into alignment, yes that's the event. I have a lot to get done and I'm a little dependant on some tuning help to make it all work. I'm not even sure what performance level we'll be capable of get the truck to on a tight schedule. I'm hoping race gas and 25+ psi.

On top of that I've been trying to rack up the miles to get the engine broke in. I went out yesterday afternoon and the end of the throttle cable that connects to the throttle body ball stud sheared in half. So I cranked up the idle and limped home, then I thought I'm not letting a $2.00 part stop me from driving my truck. So I machined up a new stronger peice out of stainless steel. That sure cut into my engine break in time but I have managed to get 451km (282 miles) on it so far.
