I got a package in the mail yesterday!
It looks like I'm gonna spend the day trying to learn how to tune a car with a laptop!

I'm sure it would. You have to carry a 100 # penalty with a stick. Still, being conservative here , I see it as 3-4 tenths faster than a stock geared /convertered combo.

Nice car. Wish they had them like this in Ohio. I’ll check into some shipping prices though.

Next eco tech tip, If you put a oil pressure gauge on these motors you would faint. We broke our first gauge it only went to a 100 psi. This oil pump is crank driven on the front of engine, and the relief valve is easily accessed on that cover by simply pulling out the hex plug and trimming the spring. Remember it has oil pressure chain tensioners so don't get cared away. These motors crush the oil filters from flowing a lot of oil so put name brand on, we have had good luck with GM ones. One thing with a stick do you have to have a sfi flywheel? One more quick tip we run a wire to the bottom side of the cooling fan relay to ground it with a toggle switch to run the fan to cool it down anytime. Tom

I would definitely use an SFI flywheel. That is one thing I wouldn’t scrimp on.They are available in the aftermarket.

Entirely up to you..
No SFI flywheel, clutch , or bell housing protection required..Of course, no 2 year belts either ;-)

So, I went to Island yesterday. The place was PACKED!!! I used the HP Tuners package to raise the speed limiter and raise the RPM limiter. That worked fine, the car ran the index again at just under 87 MPH which I was quite happy with as the air was about 1000' worse than the last time I was there ( almost 80* in NJ in November! Ya gotta love global warming!).
After using the HP tuners deal, I have definitely come to one conclusion, giving me a laptop and a programmer is like giving a chimp a thermo-nuclear device. If anybody out there has ANY experience with this stuff, I wouldn't say no to some advice. Thanks in advance.
