Re: Auto cross, drags or drifting?

None, really. You can, however, have fun running 'what ya brung' at the event and take satisfaction in what you outrun with these heavy, long wheelbase cars. Getting on the podium would be icing on the cake. We occasionally autocross our car, usually when the weather is too nasty for our C Prepared ...

Chuck's last reply was over a year ago. You're probably better off calling him to see if he's still doing this.

Re: Need a 12 volt power source

As far as I know theres no auxiliary battery in the trunk. I was hoping for a hot ignition source near the center console, unless I pull a source from under the hood. Hmm, as far as you know? You probably want to check to verify it's there, or not. Having the battery leak over there would suck bigl...

Re: 2014 in State College PA

Welcome! Man, you're pretty much there with the L92, why go through all the trouble to get the L77 back in there? There's no replacement for displacement! :lol: You should do fine with the cast iron manifolds. While LS* engines respond well to headers, the stock manifolds will support some decent po...
