Awesome, thanks for the advice. One more question - Did you make any transmission shift adjustments that really picked up the car? or what about the torque management? IE: I messed with the torque management, but it seemed to slide into gear, so I went back to factory settings..

This car had the same problem after getting rid of the torque management, so I added about 5psi at a time to the shift pressure table until it felt good.

Which HP Tuners setup did you start with? Picked up my 2005 Sunfire on Friday. Previous owners says it jumped timing so first thing is to get it running and see where to go from here. Having to bring shop equipment from home shop 200 miles away to get started on it next weekend. Just trying to get my ducks in a row on this project. Thanks for posting this thread. It should be interesting if I can match your results.

I've spent a couple of hours removing the power brake booster and making up an "adapter" to mount the master cylinder in the stock location and not have to mount it under the windshield. I haven't changed the pedal ratio yet as I want to give it a try as it is first. The power assist was really giving me issues when I was staging the car. It didn't seem to bother Doug though. Hmmm.
The next step when I can find some "me-time" will be getting going on a header.
I sure would like to find out why I can't post pictures on here anymore. It never used to be a problem...

I got an update from Mr. Billy the other day with news that the header is done. He was unable to upload the pictures, so he sent them to me to see if I could get them uploaded, so here they are. Couple miscellaneous pictures of the car in here as well.

35" and that's not the collector that I'll be using.

Someone vandalized it and took off the patina when he wasn’t looking....

Hey all of you "Dime Rocketeers"! We got a mention on the latest Class Racing Today podcast! The one with the Autumn Greene interview. Good kid and a determined Racer. We need more like her!
