Oh wait, that was my reflection in the store window!

Hope you all had a good Thanksgiving. (I know you Canadians didn't have Thanksgiving this weekend, but did you get a long weekend?)

Regards,
David

Yeah, funny how that happens. I opened my garage door this morning and there it was! A black SVT!! Oh yeah, brought that home yesterday, just not used to it yet.

I had a great thanksgiving. Met up with family, ate, played cards, ate, slept, ate, ate, and...oh yeah...ate! Wow, I think I gained 5 pounds! Still, it seemed that something was missing...something metal...?

Mike: When will you have your synchros checked out? Is the SVT in line ahead of or behind the Monte Carlo(s) to be worked on? Do you feel like helping me install a new imrc and a tb upgrade?

That trans will be pulled and sent to Terry just as soon as I can raise the money to complete the project. I'm thinking $1500. While Terry is in there I'll get more upgrades...because I can. Until then it's a running vehicle with no 2nd gear Sure is nice to drive it again though. There are many other issues as well, none so serious though. She just needs some serious TLC.

I'm taking the SO3 Pole Position tires off ASAP as not to waste them. They're expensive! I have some Michelin tires I received from a friend with 80% tread...perfect for the winter.

I'll be down your way Dec 16-18, 24-26, 31-Jan 2. I don't imagine it would take more than three hours to complete both jobs, so any of those weekends could be worked out.

Will there be any winter meets this season? It's been a while. North, south, whatever guys...let me know.

Right this moment, any of those weekends should work. And if Chris can do a follow up to the prior UIM cleaning, that might leave me set for a trip to a dyno close to the Portland airport, if it's still there. No, I can't afford a good chip - not yet - and house payments rule out a turbo.

auiotour, I don't know what my pcm code # is yet, I've not bothered checking. Without pulling parts out from under my hood or crawling in below my passenger dash area, is there some pattern from my build # that implies what my pcm code probably is? I'm also guessing since you're asking, that you want to suggest/offer an alternate to a new custom chip.

I am thinking maybe of giving it away. Not much use for it as of now Since I have one from Arizon Dyno or whatever they are called.

Its actually not to bed to get to. just pull the carpet back and check on the plastic piece. should tell you.

Llane: I'll try to get a look for that PCM code this weekend. And how do you like your ADC set up?

Mike: when do you want to play with an imrc and a tb?
