  • 7.3 at 98 on an easy 1.7x launch on the 3rd tuning run. Max fuel pulled from low gear coming in at 799. Cooler temps and slowly bumping the boost will push it down where I want it.

  • When Paul (Quicktoy) & I modded my column shift for a line lock we (mostly Paul) followed a print out I made of about 15 pages off some GM site (maybe El Camino?) & I suggest to Take Pictures as you go!

  • With us having some amount of rain almost daily this summer we just may be in for a fair amount of snow if it keeps up  Altho last winter we didn't get very cold so it may just produce more rain & cold  again with generally just being Miserable! Weather is definitely weird around here the past while.

  • yesterday, I get a note from someone that has been around Buicks for a long time asking how to change the turnsignal lever.  I tell him I have not done one in a long time but I recall that it is basically pull the stalk out, and fish the wire out after tying a string to it so he can pull the wire on the new stalk back thru the column.  I tell him its been a long time so to Google a Youtube video and use that in case I forgot something.  This morning, he writes that he called Leslie at Highwaystars and she does not have a clue on how to do it....well, DOH!  Also his real problem is that the turn signal will not cancel after a turn and he hopes the new stalk fixes it.  I really wanted to tell him to check with the tooth fairy and ask her for directions.... .but no, I googled him a video on how to pop the stalk out and the el camino site on how to disassemble the column....coul d not find one on how to use your arm to signal turns with.
