A Plumb bob is just about perfect for this sort of thing. No reason to go high-tech if you don't need to (and I'm an avionics tech for the navy, I know a thing or two about high-tech)

No, that stupid plastic thing is the "assist spring". It's annoying as hell, and annoyed said hell out of me until I removed it. There are a few write-ups on how to remove it, but I basically just...

It's not so much about miles per gallon, it's more about smiles per gallon.

I saw that somewhere. It's not mine.

Anyway, the 3.73s will be most of that. Ford got the mileage numbers on a 3.31...

CyanogenMod 7.2/+ works with MAP. Those of us with phones that aren't locked into a single ecosphere can take advantage of this. I.e. my two-year-old HTC Evo 4G works just great with texting via Sync!
