Default A productive and interesting day.

Installed:

Drilled 180 thermostat.
Energy Suspension Polyurethane swaybar endlinks (all 4 corners).
Plugs (NGK TR55 at .055")
Wires

Interesting find.......plug gaps were eroded to .075" and looked like factory plugs. I drove at Woodburn with a clogged fuel filter and .075" gapped plugs.

I'm surprised it wasn't misfiring like Shad'* was. His were also .075" when we changed his a mod day.

As far as I know, this 95 SLE is the quickest recorded stock Series 1 L67. Maybe even beating or matching some 96+ SSEi'* here if given the chance.

I'll give her the chance. This car can run 14.8'* easy. At 95+ probably.

Maybe it'* because you don't weigh enough? Prepped the car well?
