Re: Fred32v's Little Jimmy

I just watched the video and it was pretty straightforward as to what needed to be done. I'm sure the 8 minutes was oversimplified, but at least all the info was there. It's cool that you have that now!

Re: 2017 VW Golf #52

So the cold weather 14 sec pass eluded me with bad weather all November, so that will have to wait until Spring. With my old tire machine in my possession for a week or so, I took advantage and mounted my snow tires with a little more than 8k miles on the clock. It's also received it's second oil ch...

Re: Fred32v's Little Jimmy

GM Performance makes a 3" SS exhaust for it with single 4.5" tip, and MBRP makes a nice SS system too. Bolt on with no mods. Would look sweet and probably ad a little sound too. I just listened to the Flowmaster exhaust for this truck and it sounds great, without any rapping like the GM ex...

Re: Fred32v's Little Jimmy

Sweet truck! I was reading about these last night. With the trailering package you have, it's rated to tow up to 7000 lbs and the payload is right around 1600 lbs. And as of 2017, with the new 3.6 rated at 308 HP and the 8spd auto, it should be 14.9-14.8s. I read where a guy had a bone stock 2wd and...

Re: Oil Filter Quality Video

On every daily driver I've had for a LONG time, I use WalMart's SuperTech filter when available or Fram. Again, we change our oil a LOT more than normal people do, so this becomes not such a critical conversation and I don't plan to change what I buy. I also use SuperTech synthetic oil in almost eve...

Re: 1999 F-250 #54

Today's work session was focused in the bed. With Xmas coming early for me, 32V and Mrs 32V got me a new tailgate cover, cables, and pivot bushings. All were in pretty bad shape. So after completely dismantling the tailgate, we got all these parts installed without any major issues. Now the gate clo...

Re: One Man Car Show

A real Escort GT, somewhere around 1991. This was one of the first cars I ever drove that would rev that high. If I remember right, it was around 6600, and with a 5-spd, it was a ton of fun. And you're right, that's a pretty rare beast these days. Good one.

Re: 1999 F-250 #54

Thanks for the offer for sure. I'll keep it in mind once things settle down around here and really decide what else the truck needs.

Re: 1999 F-250 #54

I know mine is limited in options also. I think the automatic trans and clearance lights were it (I did get the sticker with the truck). I wish it had the limited slip, it should be standard in a truck like this, especially being 2wd. Getting in the garage won't be an issue, the 2wd trucks are notic...

Re: 1999 F-250 #54

Looks a lot better after a good scrubbing wash. Was a little tough as some of the body kept freezing over as I washed, but worth it.

Re: 1999 F-250 #54

With the new coils and all seven spark plugs installed, this thing is smooth. Apparently there was some piece of spring loaded plastic wedged between the hex on the rearmost passenger's side spark plug and there was no getting it out. But apparently the plugs that came out were in real nice shape so...

Are those for the center outlet exhaust on the TBSS?
