You clearly don't have enough Beretta parts since that half the garage is empty...

Finally moved it again and got a good shot at my old spot of it! I also picked up a new velour "wine" colored dash cover, to keep my dash nice.

The front lip on my car is finally held up by more than a bungie cord!

Been having a random miss at idle, off and on. Discovered that when I snap the throttle in park or neutral when it starts doing it, it goes away. Going the simple route first, changed the fuel filter in case it's partially plugged up. We'll see what happens. She needs a bath too, but rain's in the forecast!Image

Still fighting my intermittent misfire, but I did do a few things and it doesn't miss as often as it did before.

Changed the plugs, and double checked my tune. I also changed a setting in the tune, irrelevant to it missing, but it drastically improved the drivability of my car with all of the hills and turns in the town I just moved to. Changed my "TPS % to Kickdown" from 92.7% to 85.1%. Much smoother going up hill in the turns without having to really get into it!

I also have a new passenger, safety first!
