    TR-6 On Twin Turbo

    I'm still here. I try to check in to look around every few days or so. Things are nuts. The car is in a state of hibernation and missed the whole summer. It will miss this upcoming summer as well. Maybe after this new year (2023) things will ease up. Maybe.

    SMC Alky Kit and Pump Has Quit - Advice

    Ok. Thanks. When I do it the way I do it, Along with alky pressure, I have also been simultaneously testing the map sensor reading on the XFI against the air pressure reading from my boost gauge and regulator pressure gauge. Also I get an opportunity to see if the plastic housing of the map...

    SMC Alky Kit and Pump Has Quit - Advice

    I know many of you use the test kit. I have had Julio's kit for years now. And I do the standard pump replacements as needed. And I have read the advantages to using the test kit in many posts but have forgotten the specifics. But I test my kit with regulated compressed air to the map sensor...

    Anyone who knows me just a little, should know I'm saving you all from a 20 page rant of rage and disgust.

    3.8 Stock bottom end 500 hp????

    I would say that if the motor is checked out, and all seems good, has good oil pressure, maybe some new bearings thrown in, or some other basic freshening, then just get what you could out of it. Make as much horsepower as you can. There is a learning curve associated with 500 HP. And most of...

    If it doesn't cost anything to own it, keep it. Meaning.......Cars are loosing investment. And you never going to recoup your money if you sell it. But if you don't sell it, you still have the car. If you do sell it, you loose money. If you start another project, you loose even more. If you can...

    Its not that. That would make a little more sense to me. It's just that the Olds is kind of like a make-believe imitation of a bad cartoon from the late 70's . It does nothing well. It's trim package is tacky (even for the 80's). It's performance is lethargic (even for the 80's). it's engine is...

    Yep. I thought about doing it this way. I may shoot for this next winter. What is that orange canister/filter you got going on behind you driver's floor pan?

    Man! I swear you and I must share the same brain. But don't be offended. I think you use the larger share of it. Looking at this, it feels like I'm watching a re-run of my life's events. I've done this SO many times over the years. But unfortunately I've have had to this on my back with the car...

    Make over time

    Oh man. I feel your pain. Pulling my engine is exactly what I had to do the last time and every time my car has been at a body shop. No matter what you do, you just cant clean well enough to get the black components to pop like they did before. Wheel wells, frame, fire wall, cowl, radiator...

    I appreciate the offer. But I'm afraid for me it is too late. I am a New Yorker. This automatically makes me impossible to please, as well as awkward and unwelcomed in other parts. But let's get back to Mike. It's his thread and I can't wait to see the rest of his detail and attention to good work.

    I don't drink. I'm not smart enough to risk loosing a single brain cell to alcohol. Maybe wine with dinner on very few occasions. Laborers don't build anything. They clean, carry, protect, and get coffee. I'm not attacking. I'm complaining. I put my soul into everything I do. Which is why I...

    You. Just you? Your the only one? Do you only do this to all those "high end cars" that I have embarrassed to suicide with my worthless Regal? But not to Regals? . So, why don't you teach a class to the other million idiots on masking technique? I challenge any body shop to make me happy. I...
