Hey guys, I finally was able to get the car down here when I left Missouri. I am thinking of going to get the F-Body radiator tomorrow and change my oil pan gasket, b/c its leaking. :( Other than that, the car is doing good, it made it down here and I got about 23-25 mpg. It was one hot trip with no A/C. :( Other than that I am happy to have been able to get it. :headbang:

Sounds like a plan Jim :headbang:
I have my eyes on an older laptop that may just do the trick for my DS. I am making sure that I do things the right way before I start putting my foot in it good. :D :headbang:

Man dude, good for you. Dont let them low ball you on the salary. :yup: I knew and still know a few engineers there. I would check out the government personally, they will probably pay more starting off. Shoot me a PM, O congrats on the job also. :cheers:

O yeah Chris, everything is holding up great. The radiator isnt too bad, but you seen it for yourself. I ran it all day today and it never got above 200 degrees. I did install rewire and install a relay to the fan though. I will still swap the radiator, but I will probably wait, b/c I wont drive the car all that much until I get the oil leak fixed. Chris, my oil is leaking something terrible. :( I plan to replace the oil pan gasket and I will probably go with cork. My screws on the oil and transmission pan were all backed off before I got ready to bring the car back to Georgia. So I ended up having to tighten my bolts. I dont think I will have a problem with any leaks once I take care of this. I still had a problem with the car popping also Chris. I swapped out my coil pack and module, and the popping went away. The car just didnt pick up good, and there was a ping on the passenger side, I thought that it was loose bolts (which it was), but I tighten them. The sound was still there, but it wasnt as bad. So I pulled and replaced the exhaust gasket. This thing runs crazy man. I have the boost set to no more than 14-15lbs.

Hey guys, I did end up finding a laptop today to use, but I cant get my DS to work. When I try to load the software, it keep saying that DS hardware could not be found or something like that. Can anyone help me out?

Jeremy let me use his turbo tweaks chip, and this thing made a pretty big difference in the way my car ran. The chip was burned for 42lb injectors and a 44. I have pretty much the same combo, with GN1's and a few other things. Eric, dont be surprised if you hear from me sometime in the near future.
