BTW - If I recall correctly, I talked to Keith about using that rear end and just giving him my old shortblock in trade for it. As I had nothing of value to "trade" for at that time. Then Chris Marsh and I were to meet so he could come and pick it up from my old apt. garage... Unfortunately it was on the last day I had the apartment... We played phone tag for a bit and I never got a hold of him.
Called up to the apartment complex and they said I could go pick up the motor the next day since the garage keys were already turned in. Found out from my ex roommate - whom I had a falling out with @ the time - that he put all my stuff outside the garage when he was done moving out, since I hadn't made it out in time to meet him. So I hauled ass over to the apartment only to find nothing left outside..
Needless to say I was out a shortblock, a complete tool set, my strut tower brace... and other odds and end stuff. Granted it was all my fault. But I ended up talking to someone up @ AMS and they said it wasn't a big deal.. That the rear I had used was sitting around for a while anyway, and to not worry too much about it since it was scrap anyway.
So I hadn't.... Until now. Sure is funny Nick how you've seen me a ton of times since all that went down and never made any mention of you or AMS needing the rear end. Of course, I know the right thing to have done would have been to replace it w/out question. Which now - since it seems to be such a big deal!
- is the only way to solve it.
But when I do bring the rear end.... I'll ask that I can pick up all the parts Brandy was missing from his turbo kit.
