well, the car ran fine, but of course something had to happen on the way home. i hit a pothole on the freeway and now a rear koni is clunking. gonna take a look at it today.

i jumped up and down on the rear bumper. nothing, but of course i weigh 145 lbs and the car weighs 3500 ;-)

i think koni has lifetime rebuilds? i'm not the original owner of the shocks though.

expect the problem to recurr on the way home ;-)

Now you're getting the hang of it. :)

It's been said 90% of carburettor problems are electrical.
I guess that goes for turbo problems, too.

I hope it goes well for more than the ride home.
