Default 5th Annual New Years Performance Resolutions for 2011

This is the fifth iteration of a thread I started 5 years ago.

New Years Performance Resolutions for 2011

Okay Lets K.I.S.S. (keep it simple stupid)
4 Headings: Most Likely, Maybe, Dreaming, Want to see.

Here's my list...

Car:
1994 Legend Coupe LS 6 Speed

Most Likely:
Developing a "daily driver" turbo kit capable of a reliable 6-8PSI without blowing anything up.
Install wideband and EGT sensors.
Develop a new 3.5 N/A chip on the dyno.
"A Different Kind" of 3.5 swap
Custom datalogging program with integration with ECU
Carputer with ^ integrated datalogging & voice control.

Get NEALOC officially established and events planned.
NALM NYC 2011.

Maybe:
Build an all out, lightweight race coupe from one of my parts cars.

Dreaming:
Rear wheel drive Legend.

What I'd like to see:
Existing members taking their cars to the next level. Less talk, more action. The more we keep this game going, the longer its going to last.
Community working together, sharing information and members contributing more.

-Matt
