    dont know if anybody noticed (or cares)...ive been hatin on my job lately. the past 4 months have pretty much sucked. started in june when my appentice left. anywho, ive looked around and finally found a job that suits me. gonna give my boss notice tommorrow.

    in case you didnt know, siemens vdo has a little factory down here, and they also have a little research facility. i think i will really like this job. they are the ones making the injectors/pumps/ecu's for the powerstrokes and other international engines.

    anyway, i'll be preping engines and such to run on a dyno, running the dyno, diagnosing the engines on the dyno and in some of the test vehicles they have. will be working on engines that wont be avail. till 2007 or 2010. the money is about what i am making now (plus overtime :laugh: ). plus the benifits package is second to none.

    sounds like i may have to snag one of those big international inline sixes for the k5.

    leaving

    as some of you know

    i work (worked) with Ryan

    i have lately been picking on him calling him bit*h
    but
    in reality i have enjoyed working with him as well as learning from him
    we have had fun working on his k5 and the lift kit trucks he has done


    so i and the rest of the guys will definitely miss him

    but we hope he does well in the future


    at least we can keep in touch here

    Make sure you get the names of all your co-workers, supervisors, and upper management, I'd like to have a few words with them. :deal:

    J/K man, good luck at your new job. I hope it suits you well. Nothing worse than being stuck in a place you can't stand.

    well, considering the spring perches steve ordered were the wrong ones, and ive got less than two weeks to get it driving again, looks like its gonna have to get worked on in front of my house, wether the HOA likes it or not.

    i think that im prob just gonna order a crossover kit, so i think i'll be ok without them. but thanks.
