Default How close are your automotive goals for 2009

In reference to this thread: http://www.thechicagogarage.org/foru...ighlight=goals

How close, or not close, are you to meeting your goals for the season?

500hp wont happen, high 11s might, and I've broken into mid 12s BEFORE the cam.

The truck could really use some suspension now, but thats about it for this year.

I found that if you have a goal, that you might not reach it. But if you don't have one, then you are never disappointed. And I gotta tell ya... it feels phenomenal.

i believe i said my goals for 09 were going to be longtubes, cam and possibly heads.

lets see.

longtubes...check.

cam....check.

possibly heads....negative. but the years barely half over. gotta pace myself.

I do have a new goal that may get added however. clutch.

Getting closer.... Retiring the bonneville and replacing it with a newer bonneville with way more potential than the current rust-bucket.

t-minus a few weeks till this happens.

Getting a 00+? I dunno if I'd get one again. Its a comfortable ride but there's a lot of little things that go wrong.
