lol, i've been driving my jbody all winter! haha, just put 1" drop springs and some GR2's all around on the RS, installing some blue underglows (hahahaha!!!) Sunbird Tail light conversion, HID's (proper way, cutting out the headlamps and plastic welding a proper hid projector in place) after that i'll finish up the body work on the car and paint it then the daily driver is done and its time to get cracking on the truck again

lol, uh oh turning into a daily driver bitch now? hahaha.

And yes i bought a second gen, ONLY because it was a good deal (ok so i bought three of them to make one mint one) but still way ahead of the game and eh i cant complain, 28-32MPG 50/50hwy/city mix in a v6 5spd car isnt too bad in my books

Little update from Calgary for you guys, my car has just over 40k on the boosted engine and it is still running great! Stock tranny is holding up with 110k and stock CV shafts still... I will be hitting race city this year with a proper tune, upping boost from 9 to 13 or so, and maybe some real tires up front. I am really hungry for the 12's or 110mph+ , last year I was 0.2 sec too slow and 1mph short, I will keep you guys updated as I get to the track, and let you know which parts I break first.

Oh, the first thing to break on the setup was the wideband bosch sensor, so I have a new one on order, and a new map sensor, and hpoefully I can get it perfectly tuned for this altitude, last year at the track I was running the MB tune and AFR's were in the 10's :S


HP Tuners | Garrett T3/T04B | 2.5" Charge Pipes | 2.5" Downpipe | 650 Injectors | HO Manifold | Addco front/rear | Motor Mounts | HKS SSQV | Spec stage 3 | AEM UEGO Wideband | Team Green LSD | FMIC | 2.3 cams | 2.3 oil pump swap | 280WHP | Now ECOTECED

Not at all, my S10 is still my daily driver. I'm more or less wanting to drive it everyday to prove that I can. That I actually might be capable of doing a good streetable tune on it. So far all she's good at is WOT though I'm not exactly sure who can back me up on that one... hmm I'm not even sure if more then a handful of people have been in my car, lol.

Garrett, its good to hear your car is going so strongly!

that jump from 9lbs to 12lbs for me was amazing!! The power comes on so gradually, its easy to forget how fast you're going!! Can't wait to hear you pull a 12 sec run.

Well last year I said I was hoping to go, but this year, dammit I mean it. . . . .

I don't know, I'm really hoping this year wont screw me over like last year, lol.

Life gets in the way sometimes, but not always in bad ways.

And people say the altitude difference doesn't affect boosted cars, lol. Good luck Garrett, I'm sure you'll get there.

Steve, I want a do-over on my ride, last time it broke before you took me for a good pull, lol.
