Well, yesterday I installed my new O2 sensor, and today I got my new EGR tube. So I replaced teh cracked leaking one. No SES lights. So I decided to do a little video before I install my 1.9:1 rockers, just to see what difference there is.

Tires slipped a lot, just couldn't get them to hook up. Dont have a stop watch, but looks like about 6 seconds and I still had slippage around 50. Cant amagine what it'* going to be like after I finish the valve train. Think I better look at better tires this year.

Hey Dan, am I seeing that right.....1st gear all the way to 55? Do you have a stall?
Hard to tell w/o sound hehee. I like to take off normal and gradually step into it to hold 1st gear until I hit 27-29 mph then stab into wot and still get rubber but have not noticed when 1-2 hits.

Ya, it shifts between 50 and 55, then holds second tilll about 95. No stall, it just slams in to the next gear and keeps going. Once the springs are rockers are done I plan to get the shift points upped to 6250.

I should have the car all back together today so I'll make another vid. Then see what the difference is. I really need to get a camera with sound.

Yes, I love the slippage! The tourqe range and the way the trans is set up is great. My wife has an oo' Grand Am Gt and it'* decent but I much prefer the Bonnie set up! Can't wait to see the next vid!
