    FS: 1985 Monte Carlo SS

    I know its not a Mark VIII, but its a pretty sweet Chevy! I have too many cars and this one deserves a better home than I can give it right now. Will be deploying again and I dont want it sitting outside for the next 7-12 months. I am open to offers and will deliver the car within a few hundred...

    Kenne Bell 2.1?

    Hello everyone! Its been a while, but I have some questions. When I get home in a couple months I am going to supercharge my mark. I am leaning towards the KB 2.1 kit for the 96-98 cobra. I know its not intercooled, but I only plan to run 6-8#'s of boost. I'm leaning towards the KB for the low...

    Mothers Powerball 4 Lights

    A few years ago I restored my headlights like many have done, but I finished it off with some high temp clear coat to see if it would last longer. 5 years later they looked terrible. The clear coat had yellowed pretty bad so I decided it was time to do it again, this time without the clear coat...

    New personal best

    Well the last week has been interesting. Saturday we left CA (hopefully for good) and drove across the country in 5 days. It could have been faster but we had 2 cars, 2 kids, and 2 100 pound dogs, so we took our time. Made it to NC on Wednesday. Only problems were a bad throttle position sensor...

    Idle issue has me stumped

    I have been getting a high idle, around 2K in park, 1200 in drive. My first thought was a vac leak, went through everything but couldnt find any leaks. On a hunch, I disconnected the battery for a few minutes and it ran fine for a couple days, then the high idle returned. I checked for codes...

    Engine cleaning

    A friend of mine suggested using scrubbing bubbles to clean the engine, followed by some citrus detailer. Easy as pie and great results. Just spray the bubbles on and let them work in for a while, rinse it really good, and dry it off. Once its dry spray the detailer on and let dry for 20 mins...

    Different headlight question

    So I got my new HID bulb from Jeremy, it finally stopped raining long enough to put it in so I change it out, turn them on, and nothing. I was like WTF? Theres gotta be something wrong here. I did some searching, and sure enough, there is a wire stripped out at the connector. Not the one on top...

    IMRC question

    Tried to search but couldnt find anything. I have a code saying the IMRC is stuck open, but no CEL. I can reach behind the intake and pull on the little cables and feel the IMRC's open and closing so I know its not stuck. Maybe it got stuck at some point but no longer is? I dunno. Normally I...

    I havent driven the 94 for about 2 weeks until today. I turned on the AC this afternoon and there was a terrible smell that came out. Gave me flashbacks of an alcohol induced one night stand I had in college. YUCK! Any ideas what it could be and how to get rid of it?
