    Default I did a thing.

    I bought an NB over the weekend. I was looking for a white on black NB2, but this one came up and I liked it. I started cleaning it up a little, or as Taylor calls it “The Stevening II”. I knocked the chalk off the finish with a quick soft cut.

    I had Joel and Yancey with me when I went to go look at it. Joel and I took it for a test drive. It pulls really well. I am used to my 1.6 NA so everything feels fast to me. However, Joel has the same engine as this NB in his NA and he was surprised how well it accelerated, especially with two of us in it and the car is riding on 225/50-15 (not a typo). He asked me to tell him what it was at on the freeway, so I sent him this pic:

    I triple confirmed the speedo was correct by checking it against my GPS Speedbox app. It was accurate. We think the P-PO might have put 4.78 gears in the rear. Seredipity!

    I already like where this car is heading.

    Nice, what are the specs on the car?
    Instead of being part of the problem, why not be a part of a successful solution

    Very cool! I also recently bought an NB and was surprised at how much harder it seemed to pull than my naturally aspirated '95 with similar mods.

    So is the blue car going up for sale?

    Yep. This is the final goodbye.

    Rear end is a 4.3, totally fine with that. Marked the driveshaft and the tire, counted the revolutions.
