From the Holley message forum they post of a usb hub and a Bluetooth dongle to do Bluetooth. I wasn't sure just what is being used here but the ones I looked at on the Holley site didn't have that feature out of the box.

Couple steps forward and a couple sideways.
Driveshaft is ordered!
Trans cooler is so big it doesnít fit out front, itís a double stacked cooler with a fan. It fits nice under the floor where it was previous installed. It fits perfectly there - but no room for the exhaust. Back to considering fender exit. Makes everything easier, and itís no worse than dumping the exhaust under the car, both in noise and fume wise.
It appears the fitting in the trans vent is to tight to the case to put the hose end on. And of course itís to tight to the floor mess with. Hopefully I can lower the kmember and trans crossmember enough to fix it. If not trans needs to come back out.

Spent Sunday afternoon retuning my brother 07 Grand Prix gt w/3800 supercharged v6. We leaned it up and ended up dropping the timing down to 10* @ wot and the damn thing still knocked. After 2-3 pulls the blower car is so heat soaked that we called it a day. I think 8* might be what it takes. If the Maf wasnít built into the throttle body I think weíd try spraying it with some washer fluid.

A lot of broken parts does not make you a racer; it makes you a slow learner.

That is summer weather here!  We had snow on the ground when I woke up this afternoon. :( It was 10F this morning.

Driveshaft is here. The center to center measurement is right where I expected it to land, I only gave them the tran seal to center measurement. Fingers crossed it'll fit.


It's not as pretty as my PST driveshaft was, but I guess I won't feel like as much as an asshole when I slide it across the floor and scratch it all up.


Of course I'm busy pretty much the rest of the week, so maybe this weekend I'll be able to check it out. I've been working on stuff around the house, so I haven't made any progress on the car. Hopefully next week the weather will calm down.

It got a few scratches going in. I knew it was going to work when I had to work a little bit to get it in.
One step closer.
