    Everything is all back together. We went to bump the car over to drop the distributor and the battery was dead. It has been completely disconnected and sitting in the car for less than 3 weeks. It has sat all winter with no charger and still maintained just fine, not to mention it is only a year old. When I say this sucker is dead, like 3 volts dead. We called a friend or ours and he had a 16v battery in his car and we went to go pick it up. Wouldn't you know it fires right up and runs like a top? I'll be ordering a new battery tomorrow. All that is left to install is a new pair of magnaflow mufflers and a battery and we will be back at the track.

    Thanks for the help tonight @93TRANSAM !

    Haha the d1600 was what was in the turbo car... we got the power cell battery in it now. If you can find a good deal on a "V" battery I'd jump all over it. We have 2 of them we keep as back ups. The one hadn't seen a charger in 4 years and still had more ass in it than the d1600 had right off the charger
