While cranking, according to the mechanical gauge, I'm right at 30 psi. Yes, this was under hot engine no start condition. As to when it's cold; well it starts every time, first time. That includes a...

Makes sense. I knew the mechanical gauge had some room for error; but I figured it might give me a quick, on the spot, indicator if I was having a fuel related issue.

Would you say that the fuel...

Hopefully, you didn't bend one of your control arms. You know those are a PITA to find. Good luck.

Yes, you turn the distributor. You need to check the timing with the Spout pulled out. Set the timing with the Spout out and then re-install it when you have your timing where you want it.

I couldn't agree more.

MAF make things easier as you don't need to worry about combinations as much. SD is a thinking man's system. The only personal preference to this whole thing is do you...

Two more cents for the thread. I'm sure I'll catch hell for this, but I would be willing to bet you would see little to no difference in 1/4 mile time between 3.55/3.73. If you look at most, actually...

Your machine shop guy is probably correct. If you seal up the head really good, then the compression will go right back through the rings, causing crankcase pressure and you'll be venting oil where...

Seems as though most people recommend 3.73's for around town (stop & go) driveability and to keep their engine in the power band range. Personally, I'm voting on the 3.55's. I think that is a good...

If you have a sticky valve/lifter, install a vacuum gauge and watch the guage while it's running. If the needle moves back and forth, you have a sticky valve/lifter.

Pull codes, check for spark (as mentioned above). Does your tach move when you crank the car? If it stays at "0" and you've got no spark, it's your PIP.
