    Oh damn! I worry about taking my car 50 miles! Guess that definately says something about it's reliability though. :nice:

    I worried the whole way....I think my rear axle needs some work. It sounded like I had a squadron of B17s in the trunk, it growled the entire time.

    A tip though, if you'll be traveling through the mountains, jet up a couple sizes. 7700 feet of elevation in New Mexico leans it out pretty good. The car idled like crap and sounded bad, but ran fine at speed.
