I just drove a hour to tune a Park Ave, only to find support for that car was not in my database. Thanks HPT, now go update your files so I can do that tune.

Had a good day by Rich, boostedponty, he has a big shop. Did a small tweak on a tune, and talked a lot. Just got a update for my tuning software so I was able to finish the tune on the Park Ave. Now I just need to get together with him again to load up the new BIN file. Yet another tune under my belt.

Saturday, performed my first transmission service on my 00 SSEi. BTW the OEM lifetime trans pan gasket still sucks after 10 yrs. Everything went pretty smooth. I thought i was going to break the filter at first when i was trying to get it out, but it all worked out nicely. Fluid was disgusting which leads me to believe the last owner hadn't had this done. But for now she'* shifting nicely. Poor planning caused me to miss a prime opportunity to install a shift kit, so i"ll save that for later.

This time I wanted to put a little heat on the pulley to help it along. So I bought a new torch. My other one was just a propane, and really didn't get very hot.

After messing around, and reading the instructions over and over, why wont the bottles go one. Really, was this some workers idea of a joke? The labels are wrong. One is reverse thread, the other is standard.

Gave a little heat at the base of the pulley. Remember, if you ever need to do this, you do not want to heat up the shaft anymore then warm to the touch. If you get it to hot, then your going to be replacing the seal.

Pulley came right off. Not much heat was needed. I now have it all ported, just cleaning it up and then putting it back together. No pictures of that. I've done so many it'* not worth the effort.

Today I cursed at it, used a hammer on it, kicked it, broke it, sweared at it, then looked up how much to fix it.

If it was truly cursed then you would have broke your hammer and your foot, and the offending part would still be sitting there mocking you.
