    Thursday Thirsty Thursday

    Good morning ever body. I think we're gonna be freewheeling into the weekend. Let's hope.

    That skip I was feeling in my car seems to relate to it not holding boost pressure. I don't know a lot about turbo systems so I'm guessing it something to do with the blow off valve or gaskets/tubing in the system. I should get 14.5 pounds of boost but it seems to only hold up to 7 pounds. The car will pin me to the seat and up around 7 pounds I hear a weird fluttering sound and the car "lets up". Always something to learn. I love it.

    Yeah I looked into that. I might eventually. Maybe not 20 but a bump. LOL The performance ones use some sort of piston/spring mechanism that will hold the higher pressures and sounds like they need more maintenance. So I want to get more info on them.

    Boston granted permits for a Free Speech rally this Saturday. I'm going to the game Sat night so I hope it doesn't mess up traffic. LOL Also, I hope the organizers require each side to wear a uniform so at least we can tell what side the participants are on. When we watched the rally in VA it was hard to tell what side they were on and which side was winning. When I was a kid these were called rumbles rather than rallies.

    We got a few good indy shops that have been around for decades that are highly respected but I bet SoCal has them on every other block.

    It looks like they removed the last Confederate statute today.
