Haha. I damn well should! I still can't believe it didn't bend any valves. When it happened I was just taking off from a stop light and noticed a lack of power and a slight vibration. Shifted in to second and knew something was wrong immediately. I pulled over thinking maybe I popped off a charge pipe or something. Checked it over and everything looked good. About 5 minutes before it happened I was wringing it out hard on a twisty canyon road. At first it felt like a miss but, I quickly realized it was probably jumped timing. I nursed it home and then to my shop the next morning. I'm a bit worried about the timing belt. It looked fine but I think I'm going to replace it anyways. Being my daily driver, it will be a week or two before I can. Atleast I now have done quite a few 4g63 timing belt jobs and can have it done very quickly. I still hate the double hydralic/eccentric tensioner though. In my opinion it is one of the stupidest tensioner setups ever (over)engineered.

The pictures hide a lot. It's got hail damage on the roof and trunk. The front fenders are faded a nasty yellow color. The hood has some dents.. It's nowhere near as beautiful in person, trust me. Although the interior is very immaculate, the exterior needs serious attention.

I'm sure you'll be able to find time to fix it soon. Good luck!

Hit a deer. Messed it up. Grill, hood and passenger side headlight damaged. Not too bad though. 30mph impact. Posting pics once resized. Most of you probably saw them on the Facebook group already. Also have a bunch of car show pics to resize and post which were taken a week prior to the deer slaying incident.. otherwise 677 is running great. Daily driven 44 miles a day

New fan setup installed recently. Keeping the temps in check once again.. And pulling away from modded subies all the time(without spiking 220 during a long pull)

About to park it for more serious modifications and buying a new daily driver. Still holding around 350whp on a stock exedy prokit clutch amazingly.

Gonna take it to the track here soon and post up some timeslips. Hoping for a high to mid 13 second pass on the current setup if the clutch continues to hold..
