    Well I am in Jackson Miss. Good thing the hotel has internet access. After a good day of wheeling (finally found out why it overheats) and a very fun day at Carowinds we hit the road. John sorry I didnt come down, I planned on being there last night but found when we got back from the park that the entire familly was there so we had a long dinner and started telling stories. Tommarow is a short day only going to Dallas/ Fort Worth. Talk to you guys later.

    I wish I had known you were going to be here, would have liked to meet you and see your rig in person. Where is Carowinds? This must be pretty close to me. And Dontoe, we are not quite cajun enough this far north to have more than one place to have decent shrimp creole.

    Ga prices were around 2.84-3.05. There was a big difference with the hypertech in there, i turned it down to stage 2 just to be on the safe side as i still dont have a egt gauge, but the mileage sucked, always around 10-11 at 65-70 mph. I am going to order a 4" exhaust and mayby a intake.

    Carowinds is awesome. I was just there yesterday. The water park kinda sucks but front row of topgun is awesome. Drop zone is one of my favorites. But my absolute favorite there is the borg. That coaster is friggin nuts.:eek1:

    Paul when you get to where ever it is your heading, send me a pm of your phone#s. I know you'll miss my southern style conversations.:p:


    BTW. I'm still looking for a programmer/chip for mine. I bought the pillar pod with all the boost, egts, and oil temp guages. Found a couple of intakes for about a $100. Gonna remove my muffler and run a straight pipe on mine. mmmmmmmmm I need more horsepower......................or a smaller rig.:eek1:

    Its been two days and I am ready to come back:doah: HAHA of course once we get a house I bring my truck up here and school starts it may grow on me, at least when I hit some of the wheeling spots. I will probably be back in a couple years though, its not that nice out here:D
