Re: 2003 S-10

Looks like the S10 is headed for the dyno today. Here's some pictures of the very expensive header install. I guess these were a HUGE pain to install. I probably would have given up if I was trying to do it myself.

Re: 2017 VW Golf #52

I want to give props to this place: https://www.ebay.com/str/TireBuyer/ They not only had the cheapest price on the General tires I bought, and delivered them in two days, but were also very prompt in sending out the $50 Visa gift card that came along with buying a set of four General tires at the t...

Re: 2017 VW Golf #52

Test fitting the "new" wheels. Seems ok to me. They're 1/2" wider and seems that a little of the extra width goes in, and a little comes out. With a wider tire than stock it should look right.

Re: 2004 SRT-10 Regular Cab

It's black enough for it. That would be a good one. More psi is always good. Hopefully my mods will help me keep up with that monster.

Re: The Cleveland Car Show 2019

It's hard to believe that Cleveland's show can be better than Buffalo, but then again, I don't know much about Buffalo except it snows more than here. That's enough for me.

Re: 2003 S-10

The heads are back on. Dusty is having some problems fittings the headers though. Trying to fit them is tomorrow's project for him.

Re: 2003 S-10

Already tore down. I'm already spending more money on a rocker shaft assembly, better lifters, and ARP head bolts. All in an effort to keep it together longer.

Re: 2003 S-10

Last Friday I made a trip to Hutter's to see if I could get a date locked in to get my truck in for upgrades. I've been hounding them a little since before Christmas when Trevor told me the port job on my heads was complete. That being said, I'm bringing the S10 there this week, most likely on Tuesd...

Re: 89 Corvette Mostmint #39

From what I remember, the intake runners would be a pretty worthwhile investment. They help on the high end, but the torque gains were significant as well. These were pretty limiting in stock form. Especially if you could combine it with the throttle body upgrade.

Re: 2017 VW Golf #52

So the prices of 17" rim sets are astronomical, so with some searching, I found a nearly new set of 16" x 6.5" stockers (rims only) off a 2019 Jetta in Aurora for $250. We picked them up today on the way to Summit for S10 parts. What this will do is keep my tire costs down, but still ...
