    Got a fresh pair of TQs ordered for the old girl. Also threw the Hilton high boost overlay in while I was at Lethal. One of these days I'll swap out shifters and install the new catch can. Speaking of, while the shifter's off, is there an easy way to gauge if the trans fluid level is okay?

    You can't see anything from the top, you have to get under the car and remove the fill plug on the side of the trans.

    3 year old asked to sit in the drivers seat, so god damn I obliged. That’s the most action the Cobras gotten in 4 months. Cars going back under the knife in a few weeks so hopefully she’s back in the game by mid summer.

    I should have some fluid that's "splashed" up onto the bottom of the shifter though, right? Meaning, if the shifter is bone dry, she could be low. Basing this theory off the MGW install video I saw years ago.

    Wasn't happy with my backup set of VC's I had power coated, so pulled the ones off the car to drop off for a different color. Another 2 week wait..... going to look sick when they are done. Replaced the leaking solenoid too. Now I need to order rebuild kits for the calipers, cant have non matching calipers. Need to strip and powder coat those now.

    I wouldn’t base anything off of that.

    Just pull the plug.

    But if you were ever full and aren’t leaking, it’s still full.

    Got around to installing the replacement MS3. Put 60 miles on it and the previous issues seem to be gone. Even put a few gallons of E85 to start getting it switched over so I can finish that part of the tune.

    I think it was just a bad unit. It had the same speedo bounce all the others had, but for some reason none of the fixes they tried worked. The last round the CEL would stay on and the dash would randomly stop working.

    ^I wanted to do the same, but my braud insists on taking the dog almost every time we go and I absolutely refuse to let her in my Cobra. Waste of a nice day, dammit.

    Today I drained out the old 91 fuel from winter storage and put some fresh E70 in. I also put on a griptec 2.6 pulley.

    Took her for a quick spin (first time since last October) roads not clean enough for my liking.

    And first time at the new shop! IMG_20210405_144007312.jpg IMG_20210405_142919107.jpg IMG_20210405_143005445.jpg

    I didn't get on it too much. Only up to maybe 4k rpms but it was nearly at 21 psi. That's where it should be.

    I'll test it more once this tank of fuel is gone, more than likely didn't get all of the 91 fuel out.

    Took her out for a rip, banging gears down the old back roads. Love driving this car.
