Package secure. Felt so strong... I even picked up a car and loaded it in the bed of the truck.

Unloaded the truck yesterday and stowed everything away. Then changed plugs, wires, coils on the C10. Still have to pull the intake and look at the knock sensors. The plugs all came out black. Concerned that it might need a set of injectors next, already replaced two of them.

I managed to get my rear rebuilt with a 3.23 Auburn Posi. Talk about getting around. I think got that posi when was station in Jax. Since then, it's been in the 89 RS, one of the red thirdgen formulas for a while, I think one of my other 4th gens, and now this T/A. Man...

Anyway, managed to stay awake long enough to get it in the car, and it doesn't make nearly as much noise as the rock crusher that came out of it. Whines a little on deceleration but so far, 100 miles on it and it hasn't come apart. We'll see how long it lasts.

Brian, thank again for snagging that stuff. I have to make a weekend to get up to see my family, make a weekend to run down and swap parts with you, get the radiator out of the white car and get it repaired, pull the 400 out of the same car, fix the oil leaks, and maybe check the bearings. See how they fared over the no tune 1000 mile torture test that was drag week.

Put it all back together (with no leaks this time) maybe get a few suspension parts, more tuning (the right way this time), and get some more passes at the track.

48 more weeks to Drag Week 2018

I cleaned out the shop today. Moved one 72' out and wrapped it up tight from the elements. Then did a lot of sweeping, followed by the leaf blower. Most likely the cleanest that space has been in at least five years.

Been working on a little bit of everything... I have one less "problem child" as of today. Need to take some time and get the little Pontiac all sorted and up for sale. Ready to start daily driving my truck again.

I thought the purpose of the pontiac was to save the wear/tear and gas spent on the truck????

I finally put shocks on my daily driver. They've only been sitting on a shelf for a year and a half.......

need to finish my headlight upgrade on the firebird so I can finally drive that safely at night.

Camaro needs to get into the garage for a shocks/struts and for me to pull the rear apart to get it rebuilt..... *yay*

It was. It has served it's purpose. I am working locally now, don't really need the car anymore.

Been working more OT than everyone in my shop wants but it's over now thankfully. So...

UMI had a black Friday sale, picked up some adjustable LCA's, PB, and Torque Arm. Should be here this Tuesday according to the UPS.

Managed to get my Wide Band wired into my ECM yesterday. Still have some bugs to work out with the config of the new AUJP_V5 bin but i'm slowly getting there. Wish I had been playing with these a while ago, then I wouldn't have such a hard time playing catch up.

Got spoiled with the LS1+ ECM's and professional tuning software.

Glad you were able to trudge through and get that sorted. I feel that your car has a lot of missing power. With ample time, you'll find it. The suspension parts are part of the formula to getting it to the ground. I am getting excited - and it's not even my car.

I haven't done anything with cars other than routine maintenance. I flushed the cooling systems on the wife's Camaro and the Viper last week. I switched the Viper over to the latest Mopar long life coolant. It took me a whole lot longer to completely flush the Camaro since I couldn't get to the block plugs without pulling other components off, which I was not about to bother with. I just flushed distilled water through the system and drained it from the radiator. After about 7 times it was fairly clear so I called it good. When I was all finished with both cars I had about 30 gallons of waste to get rid of and, of course, none of the auto parts stores accept old coolant. Luckily, the township's website for hazardous waste disposal actually listed local places that were contracted to accept it and there was a garage right around the corner from me. The cars went under wraps and on their battery tenders for the winter yesterday. The warm weather held on for quite a while this year, but temperatures are taking a dive mid-week so that's it until spring.

Next year, I think I might put a catback on the wife's car since the stock SLP exhaust is starting to leak a little bit. What's the latest and greatest in the LS1 exhaust world?
