Re: 1997 Pontiac Firebird

Today we started after breakfast with a trip to The Basement at Tiresmoke Central where we worked a deal with Dave for some nice Sparco seats for the Firebird. These are not for weight savings, they are for support on track. The factory seats have very little support, and these will work much better...

Re: 1997 Pontiac Firebird

That's probably more weight than you gain on a cruise laying there. Good work! It all adds up at the end of the day.

Re: Free to 'Smokers

More free stuff... "The Holley Box". The Holley Box is full of misc gaskets, bowls, floats, etc. And ID and tuning books too. I don't have much use for this either but I hate to throw it out.

Free to 'Smokers

I started clearing out the attic in my garage today. There's not that much up there, but I figured it was a good time to clean a little. I have for free to tire smokers, a set of electric fans (I'm putting them in garbage on Sunday) or a pair of GM 15 x 7" steelies that are drilled for slicks. ...

Re: 1997 Pontiac Firebird

We'll fix those holes right up. Good thing the welder is over there already.
It will be fun to see if the new tool helps the process.

Not really a V8 leftover, but here's my old tonneau cover:

Re: 1997 Pontiac Firebird

Yesterday we were able to finalize the exhaust after I brought the welder over to 32Vs place. We welded up an extension to the hanger, welded a spacer into place, and then had to cut out a section of the tailpipe to complete it. We also got the new steering wheel install done. 32v got the rearend br...

Re: 2003 S-10

Today I finished a couple week long and slow journey to get my battery moved into the bed of the S10. In the process I found out my current battery was already 7 years old, so before I started I ordered an Optima Red Top battery. But at the end of the day, the move went well and according to plan. B...

Re: 1997 Pontiac Firebird

Literally every LT1 and early LS Camaro/Firebird guy that runs track days complains about this, and even some autocross and drag racers. There's not enough 3800 guys doing this to find a discussion about it. I'm not sure what RPM's you ran with the 3.4, but that's the killer apparently. Higher RPM a...

Re: 13 Charger Mostmint # 40

My old boss had a V6 Challenger that had / has lifter noise. BUT one scenario made it a lot worse, and that was a cheap oil change from a lube place. There's probably some benefit to finding out the exact specs (if there are any) for that motor. I'm betting on a Charger forum there's oil-type discus...

Re: 1997 Pontiac Firebird

Tonight I did a bunch of reading and I'm convinced the Trackbird doesn't have a real oil leak and our leak is still power steering related and it's coming out of the cap. We'll replace the cap, but I'm not convinced it will cure our problem. Next time at the track I'll bring my temperature meter so ...
