Ok, definately pulling the motor this weekend. Poor thing doesn't know what I've got planned for it.

Cam bearings came in yesterday. II will be adding a hotwire kit onto the fueling before to long.

Uppydate!

I've had the HP Tuner software/cabling for nearly a week and found the time last night to hook it up and ensure it was activated. All is well and I opened up full year 1997. (Will add on my truck soon enough). Also contacted Intense for a file to load for the work I'm doing this weekend. While it won't be the end result tune that I use (many keep tuning and tweaking forever) it will be a great starting point and give me tons of knowledge to learn as I being tuning. Currently I have no experience tuning and don't want to learn by error at this moment.

Truck is being picked up tonight, while I'm picking it up a fuel pump is also going into that.

Here'* a picture of the fuel pumps I've had/having experience with. It should be noted the Walbro shown is intended to be in a car with the plastic canister fuel sender setup. (2000+ bonne/97+ GP'*) I did some R&D on the possibility of using it in the 92-99 bonne setup.

Glad you mentioned that Tony.

Depending on how things go Friday night, the motor may already be out. For the mostpart I'm going to have you taking pictures/documenting things that could help fellow club members. That is such a time consuming part of the process typically that it gets overlooked while the work gets done. (You will also get dirty..don't worry)

Anyone else excited about this happening? I can't sit still trying to think of all the things needing to be done.

I will probably adding in the wheel speed sensor defeats that I have prepared while the engine is out and things are easily accessible.
