First Texas Yaris Yak (Lots of pics :)

Well, the weekend came and went. The official First Texas Yaris Yak. There was lots of oogling others rides, several upgrades being performed, and lots of good stories. On Saturday, the main event was a Power Enterprise Supercharger install on frownonfun's '09 Yaris. After much deliberation and many many trips to the parts store, Lilredrocket and frownonfun finally got it all put together. Also on Saturday, I did a muffler delete and OZMDD put drop springs on his '08. Thanks to everyone who came out and especially a huge thanks to Lilredrocket and his GF for opening their home to all of us. I'm glad everyone made it home ok. I can't wait for the Houston meet in October. So, here are the S/C vids on pics of all who showed. Enjoy
