jona57 I agree: very few people these days 'care' anymore. For me personally, whn I work on a web site, logo design or even just washing my 300m, if I'm not 100% happy with the result, I work at until I'M satisfied. You'd think that for what the autobody people were getting paid to fix your car, they'd at least TRY to not overspray, AND at least paint all the parts that were supposed to be painted, right? I'm lucky in that respect, afor when I take eMily to MY autobody guy, I know that it will come back perfectly. He's fixxed my oldest daughter's cars in the past and you'd never know it was painted. Two very hard colors to match--a 1992 Olds Acieva..turquoise bluish greensh color which was popular then; and her Volkswagen Jette -- a darker Hunter Green metallic color that was difficult to match.
mykem AND russklass: I've done the same thing--getting info from someone trying to 'take it on the lam' and trying to leave. If they escape, I get the license plate. Since I've had 4 surgeries in 5 years thanks to an on the job injury, I now have a hadnicapped placard they allows to park in the 'special' spaces. Even in those spaces, I'm very careful to park far enough away from both sides of the blue lines, because even folks who are in worse shape than me sometimes don't give a shi..errr...hoot when they open the doors. Prior to the placard, I've already spent 20 minutes orbitting the parking lots of malls, looking for and finally finding an end-spot. I was even going to get a vanity plate: ND-SPOT! Because I care-as all of us here do--about MY car, I have always been particualarly careful getting in and out of my own car, respecting other people's cars as I hope they'd respect mine.
Other: I 'found' this new candy that Hershey's just released--thought you'd appreciate the picture at the link below!http://www.shutterfly.com/my/osi.jsp?i=67b0de21b318e102650e
also awaiting call from 1/16th Star dealer about second Body Control Module....will keep youse posted....
I am wondering if there might be any adverse effects from this. I assume that the MAS will allow the correct fuel/air mixture, but will the fact that the throttle plate position sensor will not correlate to the same airflow as before matter (what is it used for, anyway)? I'll probably have to be lighter on the pedal for smooth acceleration.
Also, since the stock TB bend directs air upward into the TB, it seems that the plate at WOT might be at its optimal angle (not quite 90 degrees). Since there is no WOT set screw, it probably isn't set to anything in particular at the factory.
