Just got home. Longish drive from Arizona.

Had an AWESOME night in the casino last night. I won almost 1.5x the average annual salary in the US at one casino and recovered my losses and went well into the black.

Went smart on the last $60k of the winnings and asked for a session and got paid out in a check at the end. Biggest single win was $15,000 on a $100 machine.

:fuckyeah:
Gosh dang that 911 exhaust and turbo upgrade money
All he needs to do is get a Cobb AccessPort tune. Feels quicker than a 991.1 Turbo for $1800.

This is going right to property taxes that are due next month and income taxes in April. Should just about cover the taxes for my other winnings this year. Damned taxes.
Well that's no fun.

Image
Yeah, I know.

Honestly, I don't think I want to do any perf mods to the 911. The car is fantastic as it is. I just want to hack the MMI to give me Android Auto and that's about it. I sold the JB4 I bought for it since it's a nightmare to reach one of the connectors you need to plug into.

Yeah, thought about it, but want to keep the warranty a bit longer. Plus, not really excited about pulling the car apart to pull out the ECM to mail it off to be unlocked.

If you can change the oil on that car, you can pull the ecm - it takes 20 minutes to get out with hand tools.

We tuned dozens of these cars and drove them hard. The tune is fairly conservative, and the engine is capable of holding the power.

Might just reconsider then.

I tried to install the JB4, but there's no way my meaty hands were getting to the harness that connects to the intake:

Image

Between the metal bracket on the right and the fake engine sound tube on the left I scraped up my hand and wrist pretty good and could only get about 1/2 way to the connector (looks closer in the pic, feels like 8 feet away when your hand is stuck and you're begging for lube! :) )

Didn't think the JB4 was worth the effort of further disassembly and if I was going that far I'd go Cobb/other that allowed protuning by a local tuner.

I would.

I tuned my father in law’s 991.2 C4S and it’s ungodly. I was taking all the sales managers and senior sales reps out on joyrides, and they were all :mindblown:

Made a roast last night.. prime rib from Costco, browned each side real quick, then threw it in a Dutch oven with some dark brown sugar, a bottle of red wine, various colors of baby potatoes, two red onions, some chopped up carrots, and a couple of cloves of garlic. :drool:

Sounds great.

Trying to cut back here. On the Vegas/Arizona trip I had way too much sodium. Didn't really gain weight though, just brought my BP up a bit and I have a bit more water retention.

Gambling without drinking alcohol is weird, that much I know.

When you’re traveling like that and know you’re going to have a higher sodium intake, try increasing your calcium with it. The two together are supposed to actually lower blood pressure.

Steak last night
Roasted fish packs tonight

:fatty:

Made some more pierogies for Thanksgiving and we brought them to her parents house with us. 60 of them, gone in about 10 minutes, lol. They were so good.

Joined a buy nothing group on facebook and I'm purging all sorts of bullshit. Lots of stuff that's just been collecting dust, gone in 1 day. :impressive:
