06/28/2007 282 15.197 2.899ss3-backfired once for the first time in a while. Been making trips to salvage yards, acquiring parts for my next project. 18.55
06/25/2007 368 20.814 2.939ss3 Back again. had to disconnect the battery because i was going out of town all last week. The problem with that is that the ECU has to relearn the advance curve and fuel mixture. Also With outdoor temperatures at 110 during the day now, the radiator fan runs constantly. I plan to change to a Mark VIII fan, and redo the wiring for it, this week. Also getting some bucket seats and parts to convert the front bumper, and if I am lucky, a manual transmission!17.68
