Search is broken, so it's unknown when this was last brought up. My car's been down since last Thurs with a flat, then seat covers came in same day, & I needed to finish the new stereo/PC install that's 1/2 done. Heh, the seats are in the living room, the tire's still flat, & the stereo/PC is done except for the LCD waiting on a custom mount. Five [5] days feels like an eternity, but it will be back up by this wknd. My '89 has been a DD since I put it together Mar 2005. My OldSchool '87 was down then parted out from Jan 2004 til Jan 2005, so I know how long hauls feel.

At any rate, I'd really like to see more running, than not!

Take care.

Up. w00000000


No more of that long haul stuff for me. Already done that twice.

If I have to do it again, that's it! 3 strikes and I'm out!

Up and Down.....

I had the car down for almost six months and I've probably only spent 2 weeks worth of labor to get the single bolt on and harness re-wired. When I got the car up and running, one rod failed and maybe due to over boosting (my fault). I will change my route to try not to mod this engine to get just merely 450hp. I'll be waiting to get my ECU stand alone and do it right. I'll be also rebuilding the internals completely (spare engine) and maybe go 1.5. That's all I have to say....

currently down for "supporting mods" to ensure this summers next mod will yield 600+RWHP :angel:

(the car will still make it to the SoCal BBQ but goes back under the knife when its over for a "BIG" surprise) :cool:

This is the first time my car's been down longer than a day or two :( I'm working on getting a new transmission, but hopefully I'll be back up in less than 4 weeks. I've been down since late February.

Been down for 6 months. Should be ready to roll in a few weeks though. I just got my 272 cams/springs yesterday and that was the last part on my list that i was waiting for. Now I just gotta get them to the machine shop so they can finish my head up.
