    Right, autos have that advantage for sure. I do appreciate them in a luxury vehicle. It's just the whole thing if I can get the vehicle with a manual, that's the version I want to find. Perhaps...

    Yeah, I suck at that. VCV can attest as well. If not for him, I don't know how we'd have gotten that van and my truck out of that Austin Powers situation. But for everyday driving even with hills,...

    Yeah, arrogance isn't attractive in any form it manifests itself in. I think autos are faster now, but it's the hobby aspect I like. Plus, they're really rare in the states, so it's the hunt aspect...

    I do that too, if on a small hill. Feels awful and looks awful, I see that a lot. I never paid much attention to it or used the P brake until I went to Seattle, Washington. The hills there are...

    This would work and would be easiest, but you'd be losing ponies as the upper plenum is only 40mm whereas the HO is 60, if I recall right. That's where more work comes in though, as you have to swap...

    You're getting there, and learning a lot in the process. Good stuff.

    Careful with the brake clean, a lot of that stuff isn't flammable any more so it won't aid with finding leaks. Plus, if thats...

    White also means a lean mixture, which is what I'd be leaning towards and what I'd prefer.

    Perhaps there is some bit of crossfire going on, if changing the plugs and wires made a big difference...

    Don't forget to add your labor into it. Skill and ability too, those are all items of value which most don't factor in when they reveal how much they have into a vehicle.

    For the longest time, even when adjusted within resistance spec, both of my horns were pulling over 20A. Aside from the starter motor, I'm pretty sure the horns draw the most...

    I tuned my '85 by shift feel. I had it shifting much like my '88 does before I sold it. Before it was all messed up and was slipping in 1st.
