Welcome aboard, first thank you for your service, secondly start saving for the supercharger, it is well worth it.  Beside you look like Dave from a distance, maybe he will give you a family discount.

Second, biggest  mod meet is coming up over Labor Memorial Day, you should plan on attending.

Hi Justin  Welcome to the Kappa Performance forum    :ghug:
 
John ; I think you meant Memorial Day. G/J would be one P**sed off Guy still waiting at Airport .    :slap:  don't forget may not sept.  :poke: :thumbs:

CT_Solstice would definitely beat him if that happened!


Welcome Justin. I'm not sure where in NY you are, but if you're interested and close enough you and your wife may be interested in joining the first run of the year.
