      New intake is on. Works well with the BBK throttle bottle.
      Two week ago I mailed in my solenoids to Nitrous Express. Once I get that back I plan on putting that back on as well as the bottle heater. April 14th is Julesburg Dragstrip's opening weekend. I'm hoping I'll be able to make it out there and make some runs at the lower elevation.

      When i was in contact with them they said that it could be a bad coil but hopefully I'll find out what went wrong when I get them back.

      Spoke with NX today, They said that the plunger in the solenoid got stuck due to not being used for a while and the coil is not powerful enough to reopen it. Cost me $30 to get it fixed and they'll be shipping it tomorrow. Just in time for Julesburg on the 15th.

      Never got the chance to go out to Julesburg last month. Both weekends were canceled due to snow and rain so I won't know for a little while what I'll be running ET wise but the nitrous is working perfectly.

      Starting to get familiar with the bottle heater. I think it'll really help with consistency. Did a couple test hits and even managed to get some tire spin on a launch. Raced my friend's 7.3 F350. We were about dead even until 3rd gear when his compound turbo finally spooled up and flew ahead of me.

      Fun stuff, can't wait to be racing this summer.

      Haven't updated in a while but still running great. Went to the track three weeks ago and made it the third round of bracket racing. Bottle heater is working great and has no problem keeping the pressure up. Nothing really new on the truck for now. Anyone know how often i should be replacing the TR6 spark plugs? They're the original plugs I've had while using nitrous. They look good but I read in another thread they should be replaced often.

      Mega props to keep at it without dumping tons of money into the truck, its hard not to want to go faster always. I had a buddy growing up that won a few bracket races with an automatic Geo metro. It was hideous but it took home the $1000 purse a few times.

      Thanks! I'm always thinking about ways to go faster but money is always an obstacle. Nevertheless, I have so much racing it even though it ain't the fastest thing at the track
