    I just wanna say that in today's world when you come across an act of absolute graciousness, It's almost a duty that you recognize the guy for the act.

    84ttop offered to build my fuel rail when I finished my intake, and he and I have been corresponding via PM now that the thing is done. I no sooner PM'd him and told him that I was done, then he returned the PM (on a Saturday night, no less) about 1 hour later telling me that the thing was done.
    Then (evidently because he lives in south jersey where the Corleone's and Soprano's live) he made me an offer I couldn't refuse.

    So, I just wanted to publicly acknowledge his effort and say what a great guy he is for doing something that I think goes above and beyond what you typically expect from people nowdays.

    Thanks again.

    There are truly good people in the world and I love to hear stories like this because so often is it overlooked. In a world where selfishness is thrown in our face everyday, it warms my heart to hear things like this. You guys are the best!

    Very cool, and cool of you Mike to make a shout out to him. Both good guys (even if Mike is a bit of a southern fried weirdo).

    A Macaroni smiley face on the back of a paper plate fender badge???!!! Oh Noobz,......I,..I,..I don't know what to say. I'm,......speechless. This is sooo much better than that stupid ol' fuel rail that Nick drilled for me. How much do you want for it? YOU absolutely HAVE to let me pay you for that.

    I'm sorry Mike... I cannot take payment for something that was yours from the start.

    I didn't "make" the badge. All I did was to arrange the pieces into the order for which they were already destined.

    Yeah,..you need to send me that. The only place those pieces are "destined" to go is in my stomach. .
    I'll throw some tomato's, sauce, and some hamburger in with them, cook it, flip the paper plate over, and eat em all up, Then throw the plate in the trash when I'm done.

    Thanks again Noobz![​IMG]
