I love to push this car to its limits, when I can safely of course. But it does leave much to be desired in terms of POWER! Which is precisely why I have joined this group.
Near future plans: Megasquirt! MS2E? MS3 basic? Not sure yet, may need your help here...
Distant future plans: Turbo of course! 200ish rwhp, give or take. I have never gotten involved with F.I. so there is much to be learned on this subject, but we can talk about that later...
My other vehicle is an 04 Tahoe Z71.
22's, dropped 4", bangin audio system, etc... I love her, but she doesn't get much attention now that I have the roadster.
I live in the best climate in the country (IMHO), South Florida. I like to go fishing, kayaking, boating, drivin with the top down (everyday), taking the dog out to the parks, go to the shooting range...ya know, dude stuff.
I work at a big chain tire and service center, have been for 5 years. I went to Southern Illinois University @ Carbondale, IL and graduated with a BS in Automotive Technology. (really wish they taught us more about forced induction right about now...) I have a pretty good grasp on how these animals work, but do lack knowledge in the power/engine management department, which I plan on correcting here.
Well, that's me in a nutshell! I'm glad to have found this flowing fountain of information here, and look forward to being schooled by most of you!
