Everybody in my neighborhood (and probably the two adjoining neighborhoods) is now aware that my car is running. That's what happens when you run WOT with a header that's dumping exhaust into the engine bay, on account of not having hooked up the exhaust yet.

It's loud.

I still have a bit of tuning to do -- it won't hold an idle yet... it won't run smooth until I open it up really wide. While that's fun, it's not desirable for regular driving.

Anyhow, I had a few adventures this morning before I got the engine running. I mistakenly connected the coolant line to a port that apparently wasn't meant for coolant - I flooded my two rear pistons with coolant, and that took a while to clear out. Also, I failed to clamp down one of my other coolant lines, which resulted in the hose popping off and sending coolant 20 feet into the air. I guess my water pump works.
