i thought u said it was a 70?

as for me, i replaced my tps. my car is idling at 400 rpm for the first time since i bought it


one of my hid'* is starting to look yellow now. i guess its leaking or something. anyone know where i can get a super cheap projector retrofit kit? im tired of buying the $40 ebay hids every 18 mths.

haha yeah. that paint was embarrassing. the car in the pic (ebay selling it pics) was setup about how we got it apart from the pipes and my dad added a bigger carb, electronic ign and a few other things. i cant remember what all he did, he sold it back in 09. i do remember he had a bored out 396 though.

yep thats exactly what they did to his. sucks that the owner before us did all them drag mods. it would have been a clean numbers matching car otherwise. couldnt put any weight near the front of the bed cause it was fiberglassed up from either a fuel cell or nitrous tank. cant remember which. gears in the rear end were real high too. that car probably would have redlined at around 120 lol. that thing was screamin its *** off at 70.
