So, what was it, then? An electrical contact issue? You didn't really change anything, just took it off, tested it, and put it back on, right?

And 9.24 mpg! Holy gas hog, batman!

yep, thats all i can figure. and now with a tuneup and high flow cat/glass pack, this car, even with just over half the compression it should have, actually moves around fairly decently.

and i almost cried when i calculated that gas mileage. hopefully this cured ignition issue along with everything else might put me back into the teens <crosses fingers, hopes for 20'*>

actually, it seems like they know what they are doing right about now, and the ford/gm rivalry has been around forever.

took it on the highway again the other night when it was running real good, i was actually doing 63 mph at the end of the on ramp and passed the guy infront of me.

HSC POWA HOMIES!!!

A yugo VS a tempo?
Now surely this is not a "kill" story.

it would be like watching Prince and Micheal Jackson in a boxing match.
