HAHA...you Canadians just can't handle us Oregonians, eh?:D

No, that is fine, I wouldn't mind coming up there. Hopefully some of the other Oregonians will come up there too.




Nah, it's just a bit faaaar, that's all. I love the fact that shopping is tax free!

You could have searched for DMD on the forums...dozens of posts would have shown up!

DMD = Dual Mode Damper

It is a redesigned crank pulley that dampens possibly destructive crank vibrations. The theory is that crank whip due to harmonics causes the rod end bearings to spin. Buh bye bottom end, hello new engine.

They normally run $98 + shipping, so the deal today at $89 shipped was a good deal.

Since you have an auto, you don't need one. The torque converter does a good job of dampening.

How about sometime in March? Not sure where, though. I suppose we could do it at my place, but I don't have a compressor yet. The crank pulley bolt really needs an air ratchet to get off with minimal frustration.

you gotta remember, I am going to be doing a conversion to mtx, that is if I cant find a svt. I won't be doing the conversion, I am currently working on a much larger engine swap with a local engine repair shop. I just need to get the engine and then the pieces, the rest will be taken care of by another company for 3500. So total price is going to be almost 5k. But when I get it done, everyone will [censored] a brick. lol gonna stick a brand new engine in it, and change to mtx. it will be a fast mofo.

I have access to air tools, but that is down in Portland. I'm sure Mike (Shotwell) has access to them also, again, down in Portland. Hmmm, I have a feeling March is out for me though, getting married on the 9th and then honeymoon will be the week after that. So that pretty much takes care of my March. What about the weekend of Feb 15th?

I don't want to jump the gun, but my parents have air tools. I'm always using their garage. If everyone wouldn't mind meeting where I am, I could ask them.

The weekend of the 15th might be good for me. I might even be able to get shop access, but yes that's down in Vancouver by Portland. I'm currently out of town but I'll try and get something arranged if there is interest. The shop has lifts and air tools, essentially the whole nine yards. Let me know guys!

If you need a place to do the work, I have the tools and space for this undertaking. Some have already been to my place.

I have a decent amount of tools and a air compressor including a impact wrench.

Let me know if you want to use my place.
