    A weekend would likely work for me, just hoping I have the Evo back sometime soon.

    how long has it been at the shop?


    as far as a meet goes, I have been toying with the idea of doing a "work-on-your-car" meet. obviously this would mean we would have to find a place that would permit us working on our cars. we would do some kind of routine maintenance, maybe help some people who don't turn a wrench on their car. nothing major, more like changing spark plugs, changing oil, replace/remove intake, change out busted bulbs, etc. something like that.

    I think 3 or 4 weeks now, I had some issues with the install of my refreshed transmission and transfer case and since it was down for that I figured it was the time to send my turbo into FP to be checked. Turned out the bearing housing was on its way out, so that explains the oil it was leaking. Now I'm just waiting for that to come back so it can get put together and tuned again. I think in the last few months I've only had my car maybe 2 weeks since before the current work it was at the body shop a while getting the stuff painted and installed for the 7 conversion.

    Ah cool, that would be a good meet. Definitely a little bit of a challenge to figure out where to host something like that.

    Unfortunately I also don’t have my Evo with me due to being at the shop. Miss it everyday, but glad to know I still have it. I’d be down for a meet once I have it back or I can roll with the subie

    lolololol @ Mike

    I blame my absence on school. I started A&P school, and effectively have no life. It's school/work/more school, sleep, eat, repeat.

    A meet in the latter half of December would be awesome.

Heck I did a toy drive at the same time last year and drove down myself to san diego to collect the toys from the Evo owners there. They had a bigger group show. filled up two boxes. Up here, it was just one Evo owner that showed up. It was embarrassing.

    Im down for another sce meet. Last one I went to was maybe two years ago?

    I need to wash my car, but it is at least finally back and running. Well minus the low rpm speed density jitter issue that needs to get ironed out.

    yeah bro, baby is keeping me occupied. but I plan on getting a meat started sometime in april or may. just need to sort out stuff with baby. :)

    did a review of the Outlander PHEV recently. not giving up the Evo, but its a good daily driver especially if you do a lot of city driving.
