    my memorial day just got a little bit better seeing as I can't eat beef or hotdogs or drink beer

    The 502 is literally shoehorned in there, the distributor is hitting the firewall :rofl: Gonna need a smaller one.

    June 8th

    Got the car back for the weekend to get a feel for everything and see how it holds up. Car is stupid fucking fast and easily one of the most fun I've ever had in a street car. Took it through Malibu today and all the way up through oxnard for a total 120 mile loop around los angeles. Temperature on the car remained low and the car runs better than I could ever expect. My only concerns are the alignment and the clutch holding up. I can feel it slipping already. Need to step up to a dual friction I think...

    The 502 is stupid explosive when you want it to be, and tame like a Honda at a stop light or just cruising. I had to fill up TWICE today. I think its averaging around 8mpg. :bowrofl:

    Causes
    The most common cause of acute pancreatitis is gallstones. Excessive alcohol use is often cited as the second most common cause of acute pancreatitis

    if you have indigestion after a hard night of drinking and find yourself taking prilosec or xantac to feel better, you might be going down the same path broseph.

    It was a wakeup call for a lot of my friends, just sucks I had to be the example :hs:
