Default Been gone for a while...a few updates!

For the last month or so I have been very busy and haven't had a chance to really get on here. Since the last time I visited a few things have happened.

The SSEi got some new tires (some sort of Pirellis (SP?) but not sure what model) and a custom DHP, however I haven't even ridden in it since it got either because I've been really busy so I can't tell you the difference it made, although my dad said the DHP was a HUGE difference.

I blew a headgasket in my STE. Ordered all the parts to fix that today, along with a different cam. I also bought an underdrive crank pulley and some bigger fuel injectors. Get to tear that apart next week and fix it. Should be pretty quick when I'm done. Also my tires are completely gone, so i also ordered some Bridgestone Potenza G009 tires for it to put on the wheels that I bought for it, and I'll be getting those mounted on Monday. So my car 'oughtta be a lot different in a few weeks.

That is the basics of what has happened. Don't think we have done anything to the GTP except for put a Pontiac sticker on the front windshield and a ZZPerformance sticker across the rear window. Other than that, thats all the same.

I'm sure I have missed a LOT while I've been gone but I'll try to catch back up. Anyways, thats about all that has happened since I left.

Great to be back,

Shawn

Good to hear you're back.
We've all been having a hell of a time lately.
Wish we were all closer, so we could interact more.

......don't forget to compare the SSEi DHP computer for the dreaded 110 mph limiter at wide open throttle from a standstill.
Is it timing retard, fuel shutoff or boost dump My bet is boost dump.
