To get the white smoke you need to put it through the brake booster hose

Put in an air compressor. Hopefully it doesn't turn into a Harbor Freight boat anchor.

Put it in very slowly I've heard you can hydro lock the engine if you put too much in. Since it is water based, so it is like it is steam cleaning the inside of the engine. But its not likely it will happen.

Installed a new speedo gear to make up for my new tire upgrade. Took all of 4 minutes to put in.

What I did today

Today, interior lighting. I added a courtesy light to the front passenger's side.
Replaced all interior courtesy light bulbs with bright white LED's.

Pulled my springs, and set up bump stop extensions to keep the 33's out of the fenders. (since I only needed about 1", and I had some poly bumpers to cut up, I installed the fronts above the jounce cup like in the rear, instead of on the axle).

Took off those stupid Milk Jugs on my front end! So glad I did, looks way better now. More tire exposure is always good
