Well the car made the 20 mile trip from the shop. My first time driving it but I have to say it sounded bad azz as can be. The exhaust/air bung had to be rewelded since it was poorly welded and leaked air. I'll say it turns out it was much much less than the thrill ride I was expecting. I promptly scraped the front and underside while making a U-turn. Though I was told the fans were operational, they weren't. By the time I reached the freeway the temp was 240. It cooled down once I got rolling. I couldn't get the self learning icons to come on at the econtroller. The mechanic had been toying with it on a brief test drive and I was locked out of it. The e controller wasn't secured and slipped down in the seats. Meanwhile I'm trying to negotiate urban city traffic with rush hour getting underway. Omg... My sister is in front of me as we drive. Suddenly I notice the cowl is not secure and is starting to flop about. It seemed less so when I stayed off the gas. I wasn't sure if the efi was doing the self learning thing at this point. I think not. Off the line it seemed like it was ready to haul balls then didn't lol. I pulled off the road to check the cowl and I hoped with a little prayer and tlc it would stay attached. I had no tools so few options. We finally made it hope and I promptly shut it down. Again I tried to figure if the fans were working but nope. Being quite flustered and stressed, I retired to the air conditioned house took some meds and layed down to think about things. It occurred to me that the mechanic had been trying to tune the EFI by hand and the self learning shut down. After a bit, I drove down the road and noticed the self learning icons were lit. After about 10 minutes performance seemed to improve. I was a little relieved. The directions say to keep driving it to get the computer to bring performance together. WHOA .... I gunned it, felt the back slide out slightly and then.... One side of the cowl lifted about 45 degrees.... I was almost home. I pulled into the backyard and shut it down. I got all but one of the remaining screws off that hold the cowl on. I'll get the last off tomorrow. The original adhesive on the cowl had been long been dried up and useless. I don't know if I'll keep it on or not. I never have liked the appearance. Anyway I'll get it off tomorrow so I can drive it. It needs quite a bit of work still... The interior is lame. Tach and speedo not working... Oh well... This is going to be a pita...but maybe I'll learn something, maybe I'll go insane and broke at the same time. I'm going to drive this from TX to Mt?!?!??... Ha ha.. God help me lol.
