Talking I am back!!!

Hells bells fellas (and ladies) it's been a while! The Z has come a long way in the last year, literally. Wife and I moved from Tejas up to Montana and I pulled a 4' x 4' x 12' trailer all the way from Austin to Missoula with the ZX running 10lbs of boost ! We made it in one piece but the head gasket weeped a little on #6 but it has seemed to stop...for now.
I replaced my old IC with a new same side inlet/outlet IC, and re routed my intake plumbing. Finally got an AEM wide band O2 sensor and turbo timer. My buddy traded me some 480cc injectors right before I left TX and I picked up a HKS 48mm external wastegate that are waiting to be installed. I do believe this summer the Ol' girl is finally going to see a rebuild with a mega squirt and maybe some coil packs!!!
I will post some pics of the new set up and a couple of the trip when I get a chance.

Welcome back sir! Sounds like your Z is quite the trooper, can't wait to see pictures of your trip!
